*Strasbourg/CoE/Angelo Marcopolo/- CoE's Chairman, new President of Albania, Bujar Nishani, speaking to "EuroFora", firmly confirmed his country's Political Will to make whatever possible in order to realize the Strategic Energy Transport link of the Trans-Adriatic Pipeline, ("TAP"), which can help create permanent links between all the EU and Eastern Mediterranean Sea's on-going Oil/Gas New Findings, (in addition to eventual old terrestrial but controversial and uncertain projects which might be added also from various other Directions/Origins).


 - "The Trans-Adriatic  Pipeline is very Important for Albania", President Nishani stressed from the outset in Reply to "EuroFora"s Question.


 - In this regard, "we've just had an Agreement Signed by Albania, Greece and Italy", he observed.

+ However, TAP is not only "Important for All those Countries, but also for the European Union", as a whole, the Albanian President rightfully added, considering the fact that the project obviously intends to create Energy Transport Links also towards the rest of the EU, via Austria, Slovenia, France, etc.


- That's why, "Albania will offer the Maximum of Engagement",so that "in Albania, TAP will find a Safe Place, and a very Good Environment in order to implement this project", he promissed.

Already, in general, "the average Economic Growth of GDP reached +5%" in Albania "during 2007-2012, while, "World Bank's 2O12 Report on "Doing Business" this year ranks Albania onthe 24th and 16th place, in "Getting Credit" and "Consumer Protection", respectively, placing Albania among the Countries with the Highest Results" worldwide, President Nishani had observed earlier.


=> Therefore, "I think that (all) the European Countries will Profit from that (TAP) Project, (which) is a very Important one", the current CoE's Chairman concluded.

 - This goes even more Today, when "there are, currently, wider EU Projects to Fund such strategic Energy Transport links", as "EuroFora" reminded to President Nishani, who agreed wholeheartedly with a crystal-clear  - "Yes, absolutely !",

(concerning in particular EU's recently anounced Plans to start soon doing so in order to also boost Growth throughpout all the EU, as New French EU Affairs Minister Bernard Cazeneuve has already confirmed in reply to an "EuroFora"'s question, earlier at EU Parliament, and as it was moreover reiterared even by the Foreign Minister of the country, experienced  Laurent Fabius, during his recent visit to Cyprus, current EU Council's Chair, and new Oil/Gas findings' host, including on Pioneer, High-Tech Projects agreed with Israel, after preparatory deals with Egypt, soon possibly Lebanon, etc)

    EU-educated charming young Chinese presence started to be felt in Council of Europe's corridors in Strasbourg at the aftermath of an Historic Resolution adopted by its Parliamentary Assembly in favor of opening the possibility to give China a special "Status" in the PanEuropean Organization.

    - "My proposal to offer to China an official status as "Observer", in short term, under conditions, was welcomed" by the CoE : "The road to Dialogue between China and the CoE has now been opened", declared after Strasbourg's debates and votes the Head of France's delegation, MEP Jean-Claude Mignon.

    "Neither complacency, nor a mere condamnation of China", but a "wise approach of a political issue of great importance", advised Mignon to all those who'd either overload claims on Democracy, Human Rights or Minorities, or close their eyes to anything, there as elsewhere... A balance which was not exactly followed during debates, contrary to Mignon's personal stance, which appeared rather even-handed.

    China is the only UNO Security Council permanent member which has not yet any status at the CoE, being still obliged to be represented in Strasbourg by a General Consul : USA and Canada, even Japan and .. Mexico, have already got a special Status at the CoE, following Strasbourg's decision, back in 1995, to counter-balance the accession of Russia (1996) by creating special links to traditional "Western-world" allies.

    All former "Socialist" Eastern European countries started to have relations whith the CoE through its former sector on Culture and Education, before becoming full Members of Strasbourg's paneuropean organization. Speculations were unfolding recently about establishing a probable concrete link with China through the topical issue of anti-doping in Sport, on the occasion of the 2008 Olympic games.

    More spectacular, a meeting co-organized a few years ago in Strasbourg, by EuroFora and the International Space University between EU Parliament's long-time Rapporteur for EU's Satellite Navigation system "GALILEO", German MEP Brigitte Langenhagen, and a group of postgraduate students, attracted special interest from Chinese experts, and was followed, in less than a month, by the anouncement of China's intention to support EU's GALILEO project with a participation of 200 million €.

    Compared to that, revendications of .. "Turkish" Minorities, by Turkish MEPs, this week in Strasbourg, spreading through a wide area extended ...from Greece up to China, appeared less worrying, than pittoresque...

    Meanwhile, France's political will to start involving China and other important countries in European and Global affairs was due to be raised also at the forthcoming G-8 Summit in Japan by President Nicolas SARKOZY, (NDLR  : confirmed on July 5)

Polls

2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
