Cheney courts Russia’s oil-rich neighbors

Wednesday, September 03, 2008

Vice President Cheney is in oil-rich Azerbaijan today, the start of a tour that aims to show Washington's support of Russia's southern neighbors. He plans to head later to neighboring Georgia, where Washington is trying to bolster support for Mikhail Saakashvili's U.S.-allied government, battered by last month's short war with Russia.
