*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- The Experienced President of the European ChristianDemocrat/EPP Party, (which includes representatives from 41 Countries), former Long-Time Chairman of EU Parliament's EPP Group of MEPs, and Strasbourg's MEP himself, Joseph Daul, launched a Call to "Overhaul the European Asylum Policy", after a meeting of the PanEuropean Organisation's "Political Assembly" in Denmark, where they debated with Danish Justice Minister Soren Pape Poulsen, and Sweden's Speaker of Parliament, Tobias Billstrôm, etc.


Mass Migration Nowadays Tops as No 1 Issue attracting European Citizens' most Concerns, (closely Followed by inter-related Islamist Terrorism, etc), according to several recent Polls including Many EU Countries.


-  "European Citizens are expecting from the European Centre-Right long-term Solutions to ensure their Safety, notably by reinforcing the Protection of the EU's External Borders", stressed Daul, in accordance with EU-27 Summit conclusions initaly at Bratislava, already as early as since 9/2016, (Comp. "Eurofora"s NewsReports from the spot, f.ex.: ...+ ...), but also more recently in Malta, on 2017, etc, as he said on the Same Day that EPP Representatives held "a Minute of Silence" in Memory of the Victims of the recent Islamist Terrorist Attacks in Barcelona (Spain), and Turku (Finland), just after Hamburg and Wuppertal (both Germany), and shortly before Sugrut (Rusia), as well as more such various Violent Incidents in France, etc.


+ Moreover, EU should "Prevent Migrants from Crossing the Mediterranean, and Drowing at Sea", President Daul added, calling to rather "Help People in the Regions of Origin", which "will allow us (i.e. the EU) to fulfill our Humanitarian Obligations", at "the Same Time".


=> I.e. a proposal Similar to the Outcome of the recent EU - African Cuntries' Summit in Paris, which concluded in favor of Creating "Hotspots" at -or near- the Countries of Origin, while also "Stopping" Irregular Migration/Mass Asylum Seekers' influx through the Mediterranean Sea, where many Organized Crime Networks, particularly of Human Traffic Smugglers, are notoriously operating nowadays, (See, f.ex. : ...).


A Strategy that the EPP had already Supported at its earlier Summit in Madrid (Spain), as well as by a PanEuropean CoE's  Parliamentary Assembly Resolution previously in Strasbourg, (See, f.ex./: ...).


 - "We need a Comprehensive approach, ranging from Trade to the Economy to Security, in order to tackle Migration", the EPP's President concluded.


Daul said that in Copenhagen (Denmark), where EPP's Political Assembly,  (including also Other Ministers, f.ex. from Germany, etc., MEPs, and other various Top during 2 Days, at the Invitation of the Danish Government.


That Copenhagen EPP move comes shortly before Denmark takes over from the Czech Republic the rotating Chairmanship of PanEuropean CoE, next November 2017 in Strasbourg, for the Period of November 2017 - May 2018.

    - "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.
