*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 :

 

top_austrian_mep_paul_rubig__agg_eurofora_400


- 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...

Speaking exclusively to "EuroFora", the New EU Parliament's President, former Polish Prime Minister, ChristianDemocrat/EPP MEP Jerzy Busek, welcomed proposals by EuroFora about innovative ways for EU Citizens to attend EU debates before important final decisions which affect people's lives.

- "We (EU Parliament) must be transparent", Buzek stressed from the outset.  "We must have clear answers also for delicate questions. If we don't touch a problem, you must know why, and when shall we decide in the nearest future".. "Because "we (EU) must think about Europeans, first of all : They don't understand well what is going on in the EU. So, it's our duty to inform them, to make discussions here more interesting".

"EuroFora" congratulated President Buzek for the anouncement he made, from the 1st day of his election in Strasbourg (on Tuesday, 14 July 2009), on his intention to make  transparent debates, exchanges of views, etc. before the final adoption of decisions in EU Parliament's Plenary, when issues are evolving inside Committees, (See earlier publication).

And we reminded, in this regard, that "EuroFora" has been advocating a project for EU Citizens' active involvement in pluralist EU debates before important EU decisions, since more than a Decade : 1997-2007+

- "Thank you. We (EU Parliament), indeed, have exciting debates", Buzek replied. But, in practice, "without a possibility for our Citizens to see them, not even by the Press, the Radio or TV, etc., because it is in Committees", he regreted.

- "But, they (i.e. Media, Citizens, etc) might interact with you, with MEPs, etc, May be we can imagine something", "EuroFora" proposed.

- "Yes, (but) it needs, a quite new idea", Buzed observed.

- "Why not through some innovations ?", "EuroFora" suggested.

- "Innovation ? That's it. Fantastic  New Information Technologies !", Buzek realized.

- "Precisely, "EuroFora" has such a project, since more than a Decade (1997-2009), to use new technologies for public debates before major EU decisions are taken", we reminded.

- "If you have such proposals, please come to us, come to us. We must" do something, agreed the new EU Parliamen's President.

    This fits with Buzek's main stance, expressed at EU Parliament's plenary earlier this week in Strasbourg, that the European Union must succeed to overcome a "Crisis of Trust" vis a vis EU Citizens. (See previous EuroFora publication).

    For that purpose, obviously information and debates are valuable, but purely instrumental, procedural means which can help focus on, and highlight a substantial content, attractive to EU Citizens, which needs to be determined by other, political, and not mediatic factors.  

    Buzek spoke about the urgent need to overcome the Global Economic Crisis,  the struggle for Human and Civic Rights, Democracy, etc., the Eastern Partnership, links with Russia, strategic partnership with USA and emerging countries, etc.

    But he also used (while speaking both to "EuroFora" and other Media) the expression : "The Europeans", for EU Citizens. This points right towards what several important EU leaders (including French President Sarkozy, German Chancellor Merkel, etc) have started to highlight particularly during the recent years : That there is a vital need, and an historic opportunity, for the development of a European Conscience, to stimulate e renaissance of a European Identity able to attract Popular support, for the EU to become a strong player in a Multopolar World : In other words, the revitalisation of a project for a "Political Europe".

    By a coincidence, this was indirectly but surely reminded, earlier in Strasbourg, by another ... Busek (this time with a "s") :

    Speaking to more than 650 participants from CoE's member countries, at the conclusion of the 2009 Summer University of its Political Schools, Erhard Busek, (with an "s"), former vice-Chancellor of Austria and EU Coordinator for South-Eastern Europe, pointed at the current need to revitalize Europe's "Identity", forged by Greek philosophy and Roman Law, Christian values and Enlightment's ideas, etc. through the ages.     

- "We have almost the same name with Jerzy Buzek (EU Parliament's new President, who is a former Polish Prime Minister), because both our Families come ...from  the same village, located at the Heart of Europe, which was often shared between Poland, Germany and the Czech Republic. But my family emmigrated a long time ago to Austria, while Jerzy Buzek's family remained in Poland", explained f. vice-Chancellor Erhard Busek to "EuroFora".   

 An astonishingly concrete and simple example of European Integration from the grassroots : Starting by EU Citizens, i.e. those "Europeans", that EU Parliament's new President, Jerzy Buzek (this time with a "z"), wants to bring alongside MEP's decision-making proces, (according to "EuroFora"'s main idea : Comp. supra)...
