    There was no representation from the European Union (EU) countries at the Alliance of Civilizations meeting in the Qatari capital of Doha this weekend. The meeting focused on the recent caricature crisis stemming from caricatures of Mohammed published in the Danish Jyllands-Post newspaper.

    Coming together at the invitation of UN General Secretary Kofi Annan, high level foreign ministry officials from many countries were in attendance, though without attendance by EU High Commissioner Javier Solana, one important side of the crisis was left without representation. An unnamed official from the Turkish Foreign Ministry said "The West has not shown that it understands the sensitivity attached to these caricatures, nor has it made actions to show it is sorry."
