*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- Experienced EIB's President Werner Hoyer (2012-2024), former Minister of Germany for European affairs, (See, f.ex.: ..., etc), Replying to a Topical "Eurofora"s Question, ensured, indirectly but clearly, that the "East-Med" Gas Pipeline project of Cyprus, Israel, Greece, and others, (f.ex. Italy, etc), for Direct Energy Transports inside the EU, withOut being Obliged to Transit from Any Foreign Country, has Nowadays come closer in Tune with EU's New "Green Deal" Policy.

------------------------------

- "Eurofora" asked Hoyer whether the New EU Commission's "Green Deal" policy would make More Important for the European General Interest, such Energy Transport Projects as the "East-Med" Gas Pipeline, Directly into the EU (i.e. withOut having to Transit via Any Foreign Country), from Cyprus/Israel Natural Resources, through Greece and Italy, with an EU Environment-Friendly Energy, deprived of any CO2 emmission...

Earlier this Month, during a Trilateral Summit of Greece - Cyprus - Israel Leaders, for the Signature of 2 Contracts on the Construction and Supplies of that "East-MED" Project, new Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, stressed that it will offer "Independent Energy Sources" to Europe, with "Environment-Friendly Gas".

 >>> - EIB's President Hoyer, in Reply to the above-mentioned "Eurofora"s Question, underlined, from the outset, the main Fact that, Nowadays, - "We (EU) shall have an Energy Policy based on certain Criteria :"

- "The First is Independence (from Foreign Countries, as Providers and/or Transit)", he pointed out ;

+ "while the Second depends on (C02) Emmissions", (which must be naturally Absent), Hoyer resumed in substance.

=> By doing so, he Obviously pointed at an Augmented Interest, in the New Context of EU's "Climate Neutrality" Targets' transition, for Projects such as the "East-Med", (Already Supported by EU Commission and even USA, etc).  

Various Other such Projects, might, eventually, also be, f.ex. Romania's Gas Pipeline and/or River Transport Draft Plans from the Black Sea, Directly into Europe's Heartland, through Danube and Rhine,                 and/or the "Europe-Asia InterConnector", for Electricity Transport, through an UnderSee Cable, from Israel and Cyprus to Greece and Italy, (that Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, had Initially proposed, and which was Recently Boosted also by the current Cyprus' President, Nicos Anastassiades, etc).

+ "By reasoning in that way, some may even Find ...Nuclear Energy preferable", Hoyer went on to Add...

Indeed, French President Emanuel Macron, in his Press Conference at the Latest EU summit in Brussels, on December 2019, (See "Eurofora" NewsReport from the spot, at : .., etc), confirmed that Poland, Chechia, and others, had just Evoked a Possibility to use Nuclear Energy in the EU Transition towards "Climate Neutrality". But all Acknowledged, however, that, obviously, there are also some Security Concerns to Settle, in that case, (Naturally Absent in the case of Gas).

++ At any case, in the foreseable Future, an important Factor is also to Ensure the "Trust" of Banks and other Private Investors, to any such New Projects, advised, speaking in abstracto, as a matter of General Principle, the Experienced EIB's President, in his Replies also to MEP's various other Questions, Earlier.

    - "Europe must be liberated from this undermining "wooden talk" of a "unique thought" which hampers democratic debates", stressed incoming EU Chairman, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, speaking to Journalists after his official meeting with EU Commission's President, Jose Barroso, at Elysee Palace in Paris

    - "It's precisely because there are not enough Debates, that EU hasn't managed yet to make it clear to European citizens what is really at stake", he added, in an obvious reference to the latest Irish "No" in 2008, after a long series of similar, unprecedented events, from the 1st Majority Abstention to EU Parliament's Elections in 1999, repeated in 2004, to the Dutch and French "No" in 2005, etc.

          In fact, "there is no time to lose for Europe, and that's why we decided to start the French EU Presidency right away, from the first day", he explained, on France's exceptional choice to schedule the usual meeting with EU Commission from the 1st day of the 1st month, instead of the 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th or even 10th or 11th, as it had been done by others in the Past..    


    - "This is not an easy period, but we shall act with determination, while also listening to Citizens' views", he promised.

    Sarkozy's move came shortly before his opening Speech, next week in EU Parliament in Strasbourg, for the first Public Debate on the Priorities of the French EU Presidency (July - December 2008), and that's one of the reasons for which he significantly opened his EU Council's Chairmanship by welcoming at Elysee palace EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert Poettering at first..

    The incoming EU Chairman was replying to Press Questions about rumours that controversial British EU Commissioner on Trade, Mandelson, was alone to drop an invitation to have a working Diner at Elysee palace, together with all other EU Commissioners and the French Government, only because he would have been upset for some critical points made earlier by President Sarkozy in defense of European Agriculture vis-a-vis its Foreign competitors.

    But, as smiling Sarkozy played down Mandelson's reported refusal to debate, saying that he had to visit Marseille for a Ministerial meeting on Trade the next morning, and that "all our British friends are always welcome to taste a nice diner" in France, perhaps at another occasion..

    - "It's urgent to win anew the trust of the People" : Lately, "the European ideal lost its momentum. Since several years, whenever Citizens are questioned on Europe, they react with reserves : They even have .. a tendency to reply "NO".. After this 3rd "No" of a People in some years, there is an Urgency to convince", added French Prime Minister Francois Fillon, after a meeting earlier the same day of all Ministers with EU Commissioners, followed by an interview with Barroso

    "According to recent Polls, only 30% of French people believe that the European construction is a source of hope. It's only a poll, but we all now quite well, that, since 2005, it's dangerous to neglect these alarming signals, as it would be dangerous to treat with contempt the Irish "No", Fillon warned.

    "We all have a common duty to prove to the European Citizens who have doubts, that EU is more useful, more necessary, than ever" : And "that EU can take decisions needed in order to respond to European or Global challenges", the Prime Minister concluded.

    - "We believe, together with President Sarkozy, that EU should open debates on all issues of direct, concrete interest to Citizens", confirmed later to EuroFora the Head of France's governing party (UMP), Patrick Devedjan, after his speech to the European People's party (EPP) Study Days in Paris (2 - 4 July 2008).

    He didn't deny that one of them is Turkey : - "Public Opinion in France is very much unfavorable to Turkey's EU bid, and President Sarkozy has said that several times", he told EuroFora.

    From European Central Bank's controversial policies on Euro's value, to EU Enlargement Strategy, etc., issues of obvious importance to EU Citizens will be plenty, next week in EU Parliament in Strasbourg, before President Sarkozy launches the debates on EU 2008 French chairmanship's priorities on Thursday.

Polls
