"A subtler interpretation was offered to the European Parliament's foreign affairs committee on April 8 by EU foreign-policy chief Javier Solana. A former NATO secretary-general who sat in on all Bucharest meetings as an invited guest, Solana told EU deputies to view the Bucharest summit and the meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Bush a day later as two sides of the same coin. As a result of both meetings, he said, NATO and the EU "can look with optimism [and] constructive realism on the big issues of a strategic nature which are important to us" -- instead of facing a "vacuum" -- when it comes to various arms-control treaties, some of them moribund, signed with Russia."
