In his first official meeting as Russia's envoy to NATO, Dmitry Rogozin presented Secretary General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer with a ceremonial, custom-made Russian tomahawk:
"He is holding the tomahawk and now we have to find a spade to bury this hatchet as deep as possible in the ground," Rogozin said.
Rogozin also said he hoped to put "an end to all conflicts between Russia and NATO." Not bad for a guy whose appointment raised eyebrows due to his ultra-nationalist leanings.
