    - "These News are too Recent, while we are now Focusing on preparing the Inauguration of Euro-Fair. It's true that it's an unexpected Proximity, But, once things are properly settled, I think that there will be No Problem", carefuly but positively said the Director of Strasbourg Events Organization, Marie Lathoud. (See Lathoud's Reply to "Eurofora"'s Questions at : ..., etc).

    - "Even if they will stay at the Proximity of Euro-Fair, there is a Period of Quarantine, about 6 to 10 Days, and Afterwards they have to deal with Administrative/Security issues. When it's finished, they would be Welcome at the Euro-Fair, and this would be a Good Opportunity for them to Discover Strasbourg !", optimisticaly pointed out Salem Drici, Strasbourg Events' Board President, (See Drici's Reply to "Eurofora"'s Questions at : ..., etc).

    France's Operation nick-named "Apagan" reportedly Evacuated about 4.000 French or 1fghans from Kaboul's Airport (UPDATED), with Military Planes, as announced by President Macron, and is due to End around August 28.     Arriving at Paris, Roissy-Charles-De-Gaulle Airport (North), via Abou Dhabi (UAE), about 150 among them were Affected by the Government to Strasbourg's "Great-East" Region, and in the process of Arriving at this City.

    Some of them Prefered, reportedly, to live withOut State Aid, leaving for Down-Town Paris, while at least One was Found to be a ...Taliban, who had Helped evacuate an Embassy, and was currently Questioned by the French Security Forces.

    After the Taliban killed several Young French Soldiers, scandalously Abandoned in a Dangerous Mountain region withOut any Airplane Protection, Back on 2011, former French President Sarkozy (Center-Right) started a movement of Departure from that NATO force, under USA Direction, and this was Completed under former President Hollande (Socialist), as Macron reminded nowadays.

    Both French President Macron and many Other Top EU Officials or Heads of State/Government, already Warned Against an eventual Repetition of the Notorious 2015-2016 Errors which let more than 1,5 Million mass Asylum Seekers, mainly from the Middle East, to tresspass into Greece up to Germany and/or the UK, etc, crossing Europe's external Borders, but underlined that, at least a number of serious Refugees, Linked with European States and Facing real Danger at nowadays Afghanistan, should be Protected.

    Some Politicians and several Press Commendators apparently Criticized what they felt as an excessively Laxist policy vis a vis the current Afghan asylum seekers, (pointing, f.ex., to the usualy Expensive 150 Rooms at that "Mercure" Hotel, and the fact that Others, on the contrary, are abandoned Homeless in some Streets, etc), Contrary to those who Supported and Welcomed such Humanitarian moves. At least ToNight, however, the Suicide-Bombing that Killed more than 100 People, mainly Civilians, at Kaboul's Airport, reportedly Revendicated by ISIS in Afghanistan (an alleged Opponent to the Talibans, who "Condemned" such Brutal Methods, but Warned that such Attacks were triggered by the US Military forces currently still Holding Kaboul's Airport), naturally Alleviated such concerns.

    US President Biden sliped Down in many unpopular Polls, after such an ill-treatment of the Afghan Issue, considered as a Blunder by many American People, and Contrary to former POTUS Trump's original Plan in many Key Points, who is now credited of 51% against 44%, shortly before the Forthcoming Mid-Term Elections on Autumn 2021, (UPDATED).

    Strategically located between Paris and Prague, Strasbourg offered a natural location for the French and Czech EU 2008 and 2009 Presidencies to tune their agendas for a resolute European move towards Renewable Energies, during an exceptional Joint Parliamentary meeting on "Energy and Sustainable Development", co-organized here by the Presidents of EU Parliament, Hans Gert Poettering, French National Assembly, Bernard Accoyer, and Senate, Gerard Larcher, on November 20 and 21.

    Concluded by a busy-looking French super-Minister of Energy, Environment and Regional planning, Jean-Louis Borloo, the exceptional gathering of Top MPs from all 27 EU States' Parliaments hoped that a Ministerial meeting prepared by Borloo, will pave the way to an overall agreement at the level of EU Heads of State and Government Summit chaired on December 2008 by French President Nicolas Sarkozy, allowing the next EU chair, the Czech Republic, to start working from the beginning of 2009 on concrete measures.   

Speaking to "EuroFora" President Accoyer resumed the general feeling by stressing that "Europe has no Oil-Gas resources, but an important Scientific-Technologic potential. Therefore, we must develop Renewable Energy sources". "Since the Sun is the most abundant and free RES,  we must do the outmost to boost Solar Energy" solutions, he added, at the eve of a special meeting on Solar energy and the Mediterranean organised by Borloo on Saturday.     

Oil-gas supplies' security and diversification were also examined by the EU gathering, after which, President Accoyer replied  to our question on risks of long, expensive and fragile pipe-lines' projects, crossing through foreign countries out of the EU, compared to new possibilities for Sea and River Ship direct EU transport even of Gas, thanks to New Liquification technologies : - "We have just écreated the Union for the Mediterranean for concrete projects like these", Accoyer stressed, speaking of Sea-River Ship Highways, fundeable under EU's TENS programs.     

 Rapporteur on "Energy innovation and sustainable development", Dr. Bedrich Moldan, vice-President of Czech Senate's Environment and Regional Development Committee, added that Climat issues, price uncertainties and diminution of accessible Fossil energies, played together with EU's RST potential in order to make RES both a need and "an opportunity". However, in cases as "Solar Energy, even if the main Scientific ideas are already here, we have to make some technologic breakthroughs in order to find how to produce it on a large scale, store and transport it", Dr. Moldan added to "EuroFora".     

Czech interest for RES was also expressed, earlier in Strasbourg, by Jan Kohout, the deputy Minister pf Foreign Affairs who participated to a workshop on "Renewable Energies" organized by the French EU 2008 Presidency : - "The focus is on Development", he told us.    

On this and other RES issues, Dr. Moldan anounced the Czech EU 2009 chair's intention to organize an important 2-days Conference on Renewable Energies and Sustainable Development late January 2009 at nearby Prague.
