By Dialogo February 17, 2009 Britain’s heir to the throne, Prince Charles, is to visit the Amazon and the Galapagos Islands next month on a mission promoting environmental preservation, British officials said Friday. The prince, accompanied by his wife Camilla, will travel to Chile, Brazil and Ecuador between March 8 and 17, the respective British embassies and the prince’s office in London said in statements. “The visit will focus on the theme of climate change, one of the UK government’s highest foreign policy priorities in 2009,” a statement from the British embassy in Brazil said. “Environmental sustainability and protection will be the central issues of the visit. This reflects The Prince of Wales ‘s long-standing interest and expertise in this field,” it said. Prince Charles, 60, is to begin the tour with a three-day stop in Chile, where he will focus on bilateral ties, including military ones, the diplomatic mission there said. March 11-15, he will be in Brazil, where he will give a key speech on environmental preservation and visit the Amazon forest, Rio de Janeiro and Brasilia. British Ambassador to Brazil Alan Charlton said the royals’ visit would further Britain’s commitment to tackling climate change. “We see the UK and Brazil as natural partners on climate issues. We share similar values, and are working together to tackle this global problem. The Prince’s visit will help strengthen that partnership further,” he said in the statement. The prince is to round out the trip with a voyage to the Galapagos Islands, off Ecuador. That visit will mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin, the famous Briton who formulated his evolution theory from research in the archipelago.

Sevilla’s sporting director Monchi claims Liverpool’s pursuit of left-back Alberto Moreno is all but over after the two clubs failed to agree a fee. The 21-year-old Europa League winner has been tracked by Brendan Rodgers for some time and although negotiations were lengthy the two have been “miles apart” on their valuations of the player with the Spaniards looking for £20million. “The matter of Alberto is practically settled. We couldn’t reach an agreement and I don’t think it can be revived,” Monchi told Spanish newspaper El Correo de Andalucia. “It was a great offer but the player is only 21 years old and it’s possible that the catharsis of being with the national team had a positive effect. “He has a lot of room to grow and the coach is very happy to have him. “I don’t think we’ll make a lot of moves but if on August 14 a club comes along and they give you a mountain of cash, well….I know you don’t like to hear it, but we are economic managers. “My feeling is that the negotiations are paralysed and I don’t see any hint that they will be restarted. “We put a price on our players which we believe to be appropriate. Whoever wants to buy, can buy, and if you can’t…. “Also, with the sale of Ivan Rakitic (to Barcelona) our needs were covered. We don’t have the (financial) burden we had at other times.” While Liverpool are still trying to add to the signings of England and Southampton striker Rickie Lambert and Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Emre Can they are prepared to allow one of last summer’s arrivals to go out on loan. Midfielder Luis Alberto made just two starts and 10 substitute appearances after an £8million move from Sevilla and as Rodgers is not prepared to give up on the 21-year-old just yet it is understood an agreement with Malaga for a season-long loan is well advanced.
