THE WORLD THIS WEEK - Friday, July, 23th (part 1)

Mr. Cameron goes to Washington and all they talk about is BP, the more-or-less stressful stress tests of Europe’s banks, and Colombia’s outgoing president not exactly best friends forever with his Venezuelan counterpart… it’s all in The World This Week. Joining François Picard are Liz Alderman of the International Herald Tribune, Newsweek Paris bureau chief Christopher Dickey, Sunday Telegraph columnist Anne-Elizabeth Moutet and freelance reporter Célestine Bohlen.
