*Brussels/EPP Summit/Angelo Marscopolo/- From the Winner to the Latest Election in Spain, Rajoy's "Partido Popular", the Experienced Secretary General of the European People's Party (ChristianDemocrats), and mainstream MEP, Antonio Lopez-Isturez, speaking to "Eurofora" on the Results of a Crucial EPP Summit of Heads of State/Government, earlier Today in Brussels, Focused on the Topical Issue of EU Countries' prepared Response to the recent UK Referendum on "BREXIT" :


    - "We must Act (vis a viss BREXIT) in a European Way" ("à l' Européen"), he stressed from the outset, in Reply to relevant "Eurofora"s Question, with a profound Smile...


    - That means, f.ex. with Calm, by  Thinking well, and with Certainties, in an Atmosphere of great Concentration", EPP's Secretary General, and meinstream MEP added, (almost in line with Fresh Winner, Spanish Prime Minister Rajoy's earlier statements).


    - Because "Some seek to Provoke Uncertainties", he enigmatically, but Firmly, Denounced in fine.

    Significant of the Exceptional Importance of the Crucial, forthcoming EU Heads of State/Government Summit, Later Today in Brussels, is also that the Head of France's Main Opposition Party, Experienced former President of the Republic, Nicolas Sarkozy of the "Republicans", was Now Present in this EPP Summit, Together with his Old Friend the German Chancelor Angie Merkel, in Brussels.

    Unusualy, Merkel arrived Earlier than in the Past, marking a Natural Wish to Exchange Views with all Participants to this EPP Summit, while Sarkozy left quite Late, apparently having a Lot to Say, including with his Compatriot, the ChristianDemocrat/EPP Party's President, Experienced former Long-time MEP, Joseph Daul from Strasbourg, particularly in view also of the Forthcoming, Crucial Elections in France, in Less than a Year (April 2017)i


    Sarkozy appeared very Thoughtful, Stopping, Looking Around and Approaching "Eurofora", when we Reminded him his Historic Appeal for the Need of a "ReNaissance of Europe", that he had Launched, in a Landmark Speech in Strasbourg, back on 2 of July, 2007, after his Brillant Election at the Presidncy of the Country and a Succesful then EU Brussels Summit, (Comp. also "Eurofora" Co-Founder's NewsReport  from Berlin, (Published in "TCWeekly" then)s, when we had been Invited to Follow Sarkozy's Airplane to his 1st Official Meeting with the German Chancelor, with whom they were already Familiar in the Past, precisely thanks to such previous EPP Summits).


    But, Finaly, after apparently Giving a Thougt,  he didn't yet give a specific Reply on that, too "Hot" point, at least for the Time being, and prefered to leave, without even Saying anything Today, not even to a mainstream French Journalist from one of the Biggest Media of the Establishment in Paris : that of TV "LCI", who vainly Waited to Film him at the entrance...

    But New President of the main Opposition Party in Greece, former Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, speaking to Journalists in Brussels, including "Eurofora", was Adamant :


    + "We are absolutely Determined to  Safeguard the Unity of EU's 27 Member States", and "we shall do it by realizing that the great European Dream has not more the same Appeal it used to have before : Middle Classes are Feeling Marginalized, they feel Exposed ? to the Winds of Globalisation, to Big Challenges", he told us from the outset.  


    - "So that the EU,s with the EPP at the Forefront, has, precisely, to Respond to these Topical Issues. We have to Combine the Necessary Calm (Flegm), with the Analysis of the Situation, and  the required Resolve, able to Lead us to concrete, applicable Policies which meet EU Citizens' concerns. The First moves should be for Employement, as well as for the Security of Citizens".


=> - And, "precisely,the Creation of a European CoastGuard is a First Step in this Direction, that we Salute and Supporty, which must be Adopted (by the forthcoming EU Heads of State/Government Summit, later Tonight in Brussels, as well as EU Parliament), the Soonest possible", he concluded.

+ In this regard, Moreover, "we've alreadu said", some "week s ago, in Mytilini" (Lesbos Island), that the Unprecedented Mass Asylum Seeker/     Irregular Migrants' Influx through Turkey "could have been largely Prevented, if the Greek Authorities, (with EU's Help), had kept a Similar Policy in Protecting what is both National and EU's External Borders as we (i.e. a Previous EPP-led Coalition Governments) had already done during the previous years, Kyriakos Mitsotakis agreed with "Eurofora" in substance, as far as it concerns a Key Denonciation that he has Recently done at a Meeting with All concerned Mayors at the Aegean Sea Frontline.

    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.
