*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...

Sarkozy and Merkel : June 2009 solution to May 2005 "NO" ?

 - Will French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angie Merkel live up from June 2009 to their obvious Historic European mission to revitalize, and re-launch the "European Dream", after the series of 3 "NO" since May 2005 in France, the Netherlands and Ireland, by renewing, and changing the EU with fresh stimulus, big horizons, and values attractive for EU Citizens ?

Whatever views anyone might have, it's a Fact that, recently, EU's political spectrum didn't produce other more charismatic and popular EU leaders than Merkel and Sarkozy, starting from September 2005 and May 2007, respectively.

This trend was confirmed, in one way or another, both during the German EU presidency in 2007 (shared by Merkel with the SPD), and mainly during the French EU Presidency in 2008, (with Sarkozy "free" to move).


The positive 2009 EU Polls are a natural consequence :

- Both with 72% Sarkozy and Merkel are considered by EU Citizens to be "the most Influential" leaders in Europe, by far.

- They are the only EU political leaders to attract a Majority of "Positive" views by EU Citizens, (Merkel over 60%, Sarkozy over 50%, particularly in the continent).

- 60% of EU Citizens find the 2008 French EU Presidency "Good", (and the satisfaction grows up to 67,5% in continental Europe).

The Poll was made by "OpinionWay" in big EU countries as Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK, (with the only exception of France), from 26 to 28 May 2009.

But the most important is that both Franco-German leaders seem willing to, at last, really start serious business on EU's indispensable renovation and Renaissance from 2009 : Year of crucial EU and German Elections.

Therefore, this time, the joint European move by Sarkozy and Merkel, which just published a common Franco-German Manifesto, aims to stimulate aspirations and action not only in their respective countries, but also in many other EU "partners", as they say.

Both on EU economy, social values and scientifico-technologic research, as well as on Turkey's controversial EU bid, obviously incompatible with a popular Political Europe, whose Citizens can find a collective Identity and popular Values, they have already started to magnetize various growing voices accross the European landscape :

"Today, more than ever, it' time for action", they stress from the outset.

Facing "an unprecedented Global financial and economic Crisis", "Europeans must get resolutely involved if they want for the World which is being built to meet their Values of Liberty, Solidarity and Justice".

"That's what we want" and "propose to our Partners" :

* "A strong Europe, able to protect us" :

- "We refuse a Bureaucratic EU, which mecanically applies burdensome rules and is afraid of change. We want a European Union which listens what Citizens have to say, which innovates, stimulates".

- "We want a strong and united EU in the World, while also respecting its Member States' Diversity", which "brings Courageous Replies to the Questions of our Times, ensuring our Prosperity :  

This implies to "favor Research and Innovation", "Economic Coordination", to "develop real Policies on Immigrationn, Energy, Defence, and modernise  common policies, particularly Agriculture".

*  "EU must bring immediate replies to the Global Crisis".

- "Lawless liberalism failed". "The Model we want is that of a Responsible Market Economy, which favors Enterpreneurs and Workers, above Speculators ;  Long-term Investment, over immediate profiits".

- "We appeal upon the EU to take, from June, the first decisions to ensure a real European Regulation of Financial Markets, based on coordination and cooperation". "On speculative funds, on fiscal heavens, CEO's and financial operators' earnings, EU must give the example".

- "We call to change the rules of accounts, which are important for our Economy's revival : The competent normative authorities must take action". "The issue of a sufficient Credit offer is of central importance for our Economy". "We don't accept that, during this Financial Crisis, the European Banks' capacity to lend money might be unjustly reduced by Capital's requirements and accountant's rules

* "During the German and French Presidencies, EU has resoçlutely prepared itself for the fight against Global Warming... EU is the 1st and only area in the World to have adopted a package of ambitious and legally binding rules to comply with International Aims"

- "We have now to convince our Friends and Partners, to get involved, in order to atteint, next December at Copenhagen, a Global Agreement worthy of whay is at stake. Our closer ally, the US, but also other big industrial countries, must commit themselves with the same force as the Europeans".

"Green Growth is a Chance ... and an opportunity to create jobs turned towards the Future. Europe must be a leader".

- But, at the same time, we must ensure that our companies remain competitive in the World. The ambitious European involvements on Climat must not lead into a position where EU industry might become a Victim of Unfair Competition. Climat protection and Competitvity must go together. If our International partners refuse to associate themselves to our efforts, we are determined to take measures to protect European Industry"

* "Europe must be more ambitious for its Industry" : "It must favor the emergence of strong European enterprises at a Global level".

- "As long as an International mechanism" to "monitor Public Aids at WTO level, and hinder 3rd Countries to give abusive subsidies to their enterprises, provoking unfair competition", is "not yet set up, we must consider Transitory European Solutions".

* "The current Public Debt is too heavy... We must head anew towards sound public finance, as soon as we'd have passed the crucial stage in this crisis".
-------------------------------------------------

* Last, but not least :  "Europe must play a top-level role in the World"

- "For that purpose,  it needs efficient Institutions. That's why we need Lisbon Treaty". "The 27 Member States decided, last December (2008) that the Treaty should enter into force before the end of this year (2009)". To obtain that, June EU Council must agree "on the Guarantees for Ireland".

- But, "to be able to act, EU needs Borders. An Enlargment without Limits is not possible", Sarkozy and Merkel stressed in an obvious reference to Turkey, etc.

- "In order to be strong, Europe must assume its Values and its Identity". "Human Rights .. are at the basis of our commitment for a Peaceful Development accross the World".

- "For that purpose, we shall strengthen our common Defence and Security policy".
----------------------

* "We are ready to contribute to activate the EU towards the realisation of these aims, with our EU Partners".

"In order to succeed", Europe  "needs the active involvment of all, starting by Citizens themselves. That's why the June 7 rendez-vous is important", and "we are calling all Europeans to vote".

"We are convinced that, if Europe wants, Europe can", they conclude.
-----------------------

Precisely : - What can better forge "Europe's Will" than a "European Consciousness" emerging from political, democratic struggles to face Global Challenges, and open big New Horizons, including by crystal-clear Public Debates, with active EU Citizens' involvement, before the most important EU Decisions affecting People's lives ?

Precisely what "EuroFora"s project warns since 1997-2007, and unprecedented Majority Abstentions, since 1999-2004, added to 3 "NO" to EU Referenda in 2005 and 2007, proved meanwhile..

Let's hope that the Time wasted by some scandalous anti-European and anti-Democratic obstacles of the Past, will stimulate faster, simplified but substantial and persistent, efficient action.-

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 ?
