*Strasbourg/EU-Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- One among the most Experienced and Long-Time EU Parliament's vice-Presidents, from the Governing Party in the Biggest EU Member Country : that of ChristianDemocrats/EPP in Germany (CDU), MEP Rained Wieland, speaking to "Eurofora", Welcomed the forthcoming, Crucial USA - North Korea Summit on Nuclear Peace+.

New USA President Don Trump and Northern Korea's President Kim Jong-un have notoriously scheduled to Hold an UnPrecedented Summit in Singapore, on Early Morning of Tuesday, 12 of June 2018, for the preparation of which they have already arrived at an Archipelago's island.


Curiously, the EU Parliament's Plenary Session, which just Starts this Week in Strasbourg, has not yet scheduled any forseeable Debate on that Crucial Summit for Nuclear Peace+, (even if the G7 Summit in Canada is due to be Debated as Part of MEPs' Discussions and Votes on the forthcoming, EU Brussels' Summit, at the End of June in Brussels).

However, Wieland, who holds a Record for being Constantly re-Elected by EU Parliament as vice-President, 4 Times in a Row, during almost a Decade now, (since 2009), was Brief and Concise, but Clearly Positive, in Hailing that Exceptional Event :

 - "I think that it's certainly a Good thing that they Meet !", already stressed the EU Parliament's vice-President, in Reply to a relevant "Eurofora"s Question on the Trump - Kim forthcoming crucial encounter at Singapore, later this Same Week. - Modestly, However, vice-President Wieland, (who has been also Dealing with "Development" and "ACP" Issues during Recent Years), told "Eurofora" that he "has no special proficiency on Foreign Policy issues", in general, speaking on that Singapore Summit just because of the Nuclear Peace prospects' interest also for European Citizens.


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


+ Meanwhile, concerning specifically the Korean Issue, one of his German-Speaking Collegues and Friends, ChristianDemocrat/EPP Collegues from Neighbouring Austria, Paul Rübig, has Recently been much More Explicit in Strasbourg about the still Evolving Diplomatic Peace Efforts :

- Rübig, another Experienced, Long-Time, mainstream MEP, who is also vice-President of EU's Delegation to the Korean Peninsula in general, and had Organized, as Early as, Already since the Autumn of 2017 an Intyeresting and Pioneer PanEuropean Debate in Strasbourg with South Korea's Ambassador/Permanent Representative to the EU, (See "Eurofora"s Interview of the South Korean Ambassador in EU Parliament, on this occasion, at : ...), even if that Meeting had occured at a particularly Harsh and Tense Moment, full of Adverse Tension and Wide Concerns for an eventual Dangerous Clash, Nevertheless, he was apparently the First Top European/International Politician to Dare Express a Voluntaristic Hope, Foreseeing the Possibility of a largely Positive Outcome at the Horizon :


- "Don't be Surprized if you might, eventually, See, sooner or later, even some Spectacular Moves for Peace and even towards ReUnification in the Korean Peninsula" :


 - "We, also, in Europe, could Not even Dream to See what happened, Back from 1989, about the Peaceful ReUnification of Germany, and with the rest of Central-Eastern European Countries, Rübig had Astonishingly Prognosticated at a numerous but Surprized Audience, which was Facing, then, on the Contrary, various Rumours about alleged Threats for one or another Destructive and Dangerous Miiltary and/or even Nuclear Clash, there...


+ And, Later-on, when News about South and North Korean Countries' Deal to Desescalate Tensions at least during the International Olympic Games scheduled for Februrary 2018, MEP Rübig, who is also Regularly Organizing the Symbolic venue of Christmas' Light from Bethleem to EU Parliament in Strasbourg each December (this time with the Participation of New EU Parliament's President Antonio Tajani from Italy), speaking to "Eurofora" as early as, already since that December 2017, had clearly Expressed his Hope and Belief that this was Not going to remain just a Short-Lived Move, but was due, according to him, to become rather the Beginning of a whole Series of various such Moves towards Peace during 2018.


Experienced Top MEP Rübig's point, Later Proved to be quite Premonitory, despite several Problems, at least during this 1st Part of the Year 2018, whose 2nd Part will see the rotating Chairmanship of the EU taken over, from July to December 2018, by his Country, Austria, whose new Prime Minister Sebastian Kurz, is notoriously considered to be close to US Presdident Don Trump, (Comp. various Kurz's Statements to "Eurofora", during EU Summits in Brussels, as, f.ex., at ... + ..., etc).


Meanwhile, in addition to South Korea's new President Moon Jae-in, and various Others, it's, UnExpectedly, even the "Socialist" former US President Jimmy Carter who is on record for reportedly proposing to Nominate Trump, in case of a Succesful Singapore US - N.Korea Summit, to be Awarded the NOBEL Peace Prize...

It's important to create a synergy between "mutually stimulating" EU Countries' moves in order to overcome an "Unjust" Crisis "imported from USA", stressed new French Minister for Economic Revival, Patrick Devedjian, in Strasbourg, warning also that, while hoping for a vigorous Obama US Plan, nevertheless, "Time" is of essence for Europe...

In fact, it's EU's own interest to act Fast, before June 2009 EU Election, since, with Lisbon Treaty not ratified yet, it cannot face again the risk of a Majority Abstention, as back in 1999 and 2004, nor another "anti-EU" mood among Citizens, as in the 2005 French and Dutch "No", followed by the 2008 Irish "No", without endangering rare Historic opportunities, currently open for the EU, whose future is at stake.

From Social issues up to High-Tech Scientific Research, concrete action for Economic revival started from Strasbourg and its European dimension, for the new super-Minister Patrick Devedjian, who visited a Popular Social Housing and Infrastructure project at nearby Hagenau village, before meeting new leaders of Strasbourg's unified mega-University in a Scientific Labo at the Campus, close to EU Parliament and CoE headquarters.

Devedjian, who met also with all the spectrum of Local Political  deciders of Alsace region, close to FrancoGerman borders, wants for deeds to meet the words, in real practice, whenever politicians speak about Strasbourg and Europe's development.

-------------------------------
Devedjan to "EuroFora" : "European coordination can act as a multiplicator by mutual stimulations"
--------------------------------
Devedjian was questioned by "Euro-Fora" on his expectations for reciprocal effects of coordinated European plans :

- "We are living in a (European and Global) system where borders are transparent : When we take measures in France, they produce effects also in Germany, in Belgium, Italy, Spain, or other EU countries, and vice-versa. "So, we can have mutually stimulating effects between national revival Plans, if they are somehow coordinated", ..."They can augment each other's effects, acting as multiplicators and levers". "As a State stimulates Local authorities and Private business, similarly, each EU country's economic revival plan may multiply the effects of other EU countries' actions", he told us.

- "F.ex., when I visited Strasbourg University's Scientific labos, they told me that part of the renovation, funded by France, is realized by German companies located only a few Kms away from the border. Thus, the French revival plan benefits also the German economy. And vice-versa : when Germany takes certain measures, they can have beneficial effects also for French companies"

In an era of Globalisation, "nobody can close and isolate himself inside a Fish-Bowl !", he concluded.

Economy's revival starts from Strasbourg and Europe, for new French Minister Devedjian

This could be one of the reasons for which the new French Minister for Economic Stimulus chose to make his 1st visit to Strasbourg, the headquarters of European and Paneuropean Institutions, in the Franco-German river borders at the heart of Europe.

- "It was President Sarkozy's idea", he revealed, adding also fresh "support to Strasbourg's European vocation, not only with words, but also with deeds" :F.ex., the completion of a High-Speed Train network, due to stimulate fast links with Germany, Austria, Italy, Hungary and other central EU Countries.

- "This Crisis is Unjust for Europe, because it wasn't its fault". The greatest part of the "Crisis was imported from the USA, where problems are deeper than here'', in the EU. The Crisis "wasn't due to a bad managment by Europe", who was affected by problems which emerged elsewhere. That's why Europe must be united and active enough to face this challenge. said Devedjian, who has just won +5% in popularity...

- "I hope that there will be an "Obama-effect" also on Economy, and that the Plan of the New American President will be substantial enough to face this crisis, which is worse in the USA than in our area", Europe, he added.

"Economic Revival overcomes political divisions : F.ex. Strasbourg's Socialist Mayor "Ries agreed that State actions funded by Public Debt are justified during such exceptional circumstances", noted the Center-Right republican Minister.

"Zeitnot" for 2009 EU Elections ?

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

"My problem is Time", stressed Devedjian from the outset, at Strasbourg's University. "I have to engage 75% of funds in 2009, out of a total of 29 Billion euros", he explained later. "Monitoring will be of essence", because we must "avoid bureaucracy or delays. No project should get lost or neglected in complex meanders of adminstrative offices' moving sands", he warned.

- "I must create activities in the middle of the Crisis", he added. Questioned by EuroFora whether he aims to start creating some "hopes before the June 2009 EU Elections", Devedjian, a former leader of the Governing Political Party in France: UMP, did not immediately reply, but revealed, later, that he "hoped to start at least some Projects on May 2009, even if the bulk of Revival Plan's effects are "expected from Autumn 2009".

However, with only 30% of EU Citizens currently aiming to cast a vote at the forthcoming EU Elections on June, (See other NewStory), the  coordinated moves' results are expected to be crucial for Citizens' participation and votes at the forthcoming June 2009 EU Elections throughout all 27 EU Member Countries...Thus, it's vital for all Europe's own Future that coordinated national Economic revival plans start to have concrete results and create hopes for new dynamics before the June 2009 EU Election...

A real challenge, since careful choices are needed : Our aim is to fund projects which "create activities", even "in the middle of the crisis", and have a "lever effect, attracting other investments", Devedjian said. Because the "Stimulus' Plan has 2 aims : A Tactical one : to create New Activities. And a Strategic one : Choose what can become efficient and useful also in the Long-term". 

- "Are you ready ?", he asked Strasbourg University's new President, professor Alain Beretz, with some 700 million euros in his pockets for Education-Research in France. - "We are !", he replied.

- "The Minister's initiative can accelerate funds, and Time is important for us. This concerns the entire renovation of all our buildings", said to "EuroFora" President, Beretz. "I showed some Scientific Research Labos to Mr. Devedjian. But, If we had more time, I could show him also some Education Amphis, whose condition needs to meet Strasbourg's new Mega-University's ambition" to reach the 10 best in the World, as Prime Minister Fillon earlier anounced here.

Regional Prefectures should gather and select projects to be presented for decision before the end of January 2009.

A well-known close friend of President Sarkozy, who succeeded as EU Chairman to launch, in agreement with German chancelor Merkel and even British prime minister Brown, vigorous EU actions against the Financial/Economic Crisis, (starting from the 1st Historic Summit of EuroZone's Heads of State/Government, October 12 at Elysee Palace, followed by Washington G20 Global Summit), Devedjan will have a key role in the realisation of National and EU plans recently agreed in Brussels.

President Sarkozy is expected to arrive himself in Strasbourg, on the occasion of the official inauguration of its brand New Mega-Hospital, on the 9th of January 2009, at the eve of EU Parliament's session here, Elysee confirmed shortly after Devedjian's visit.

EU is due to review its economic revival plans at March 2009 EU Council in Prague, before the April 2 London Global Summit.
