*Brussels/EU-Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- Replying to an "Eurofora" Question on the sidelines of a Press Conference in Brussels' PressRoom, the New President of EU Parliament, experienced former twice EU Commissioner and Long-Time MEP, Antonio Tajani, a ChristianDemocrat from Italy, (Comp. also Various Other Tajani Statements in Reply to "Eurofora" Questions also Earlier, on Different Issues, f.ex. from Space High-Tech, up to Economy and SMEs, etc), made it even more Clear that, in fact, the Organisation which is due to be the Most Democratic body of the EU, currently has a kind of Threefold approach on the "Hot" Topical Issue :


While being Adamant on Real Political Refugees' need for elementary Protection, and even Discussing some Economic Migrants' socio-economico-cultural Integration (partly in Europe, added to Wider Development Aid EU Policies at their Countries of Origin, mainly Africa etc, with some Interesting Ideas: See, f.ex., Infra), Nobody was Dupe, naturaly, also of the Risk that some, slyly push also various Traffick and other Criminal attempts, as Islamist Radicalization and even Deadly Islamist Terrorism, as a Growing Series of 2012 - 2017, unprecedented, Barbaric Incidents are proving.

Tajani spoke Today with Journalists, including "Eurofora", in Brussels' Pressroom, well in direct Extension of his Joint Press Conference, held Earlier here, Together with EU Commission's President, Jean-Claude Juncker, and EU's High Representative for External and Security Action, former Foreign Minister of Italy, Federica Mogherini, (See relevant "Eurofora" Photo, right in the Middle of a High-Level Conference, precisely, on "Migration Management", at the Eve of a 2 Days-long EU Heads of State/Government Summit, here in Brussels, which is due to Discuss, and eventualy Decide, also on Migration Issues, in addition on the current Need to Boost EU's common Security/Defense, as well as certain Topical Foreign Policy issues.


-------------------------------    

 

- "Eurofora" reminded to Tajani, in this Context, also Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos recent relevant Statements, in reply to MEPs' Questions, at CoE's PanEuropean Assembly in Strasbourg, (See: ....), in substance, that Real Refugees could be socio-culturaly Integrated, while Europe might also become Able to Cope even with several Economic Migrants, But, on the Contrary, Greek and Other CoastGuards at EU's External Borders, had Not yet the Necessary Capabilities that would enable them to really Check a growing part of various "Criminals", who are send by Smugglers, particularly through Turkey, (whose Authorities he Criticized for Allowing such things to happen from Territories that they Control. That's why, Pavlopoulos (who is the Unique Top Greek Official supported Both by the Rigt and the Left sides of the Political Spectrum) asked for a European level Response to Fix that Problem.

    - "What exactly was that 3rd Issue ?", querried, carefuly but Interested to Know, the New President of EU Parliament.


     => Indeed, that's Part of several Cases that we (EU) are Discussing nowadays here, Antonio Tajani, soberly but Sharply and Positively, Replied immediately to the above-mentioned "Eurofora"'s Question, (Comp. Supra).


    + He also hinted that, at least partly, Greek President Pavlopoulos' concern, recently expressed at the PanEuropean CoE in Strasbourg, is, (in addition to Internal EU JHA Policy), related even with EU's Foreign Policy, (f.ex. on Turkish Authorities' alleged trend to Let mainly Turkish Smugglers select mostly some quite Thorny Groups of Mass irregular Migrants, while reportedly Discouraging Educated/Qualified or Christian Asylum Seekers, even if Facing Brutal Oppression by ISIL and Other Islamist Terrorists, as Brussels' EU Reports, leaked mainly to German mainsteam Medias, such "Die Welt", etc, have recently Revealed and Denounced).


         - Indeed, more Widely speaking, currently, the Fight against various TransNational Criminal Organisations attempting to Exploit Mass Irregular Migration, (f.ex., for Smuggling, even Traffick of Childrens' Organs abused in Transplantation "Markets", Sexual Abuses on Women, Children, etc), in addition to notorious claims about Islamist Terrorists' infiltration, etc), are an "Absolutely Important", Top "Priority" of Europe, EU's High Representative on Foreign and Security Policy, Federica Mogherini, stressed in reply to relevant Questions, earlierToday.


 + Significantly, such Moves come just after New USA President, Don Trump's 1st official Visits in Europe and to the Middle East, just after which, for the 1st  Time in History, even Arab Countries as Egypt, Jordany, Saudi Arabia, UAE, etc., Started to Jointly Denounce and punish with Sanctions, Qatar's role, particularly during the Last 5 or more Years, to Fund Both "Islamist Radicalism  Ideologies of Hate" and Violent Islamist Terrorism", as Trump clearly pointed out.


=> By the way, Tajani did not shy away from the recent Facts, when he acknowledged, later Today, (speaking to Journalists, including "Eurofora", in Brussels' EU Parliament's PressRoom, that, indeed, particularly after also the Recent various ISIS' Deadly Attacks throughout Europe and elsewhere in the World, Yes, "We are Facing a kind of War, especialy since ISIS is Losing around Raqua (Occupied Syria), starting to launch various Attacks in Different parts of the World: f.ex. from Europe to subSaharian Africa, Afghanista, or even Philippines, etc., as he observed.


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

    Pointing out the Fact that he also spoked "after a Series of Attacks" these Last few Weeks, the competent EU Commissioner for Security Union, J. King, stressed that, Although Migration and Security should not be Mixed up as one single issue, nevertheless, "effective Integration, based on Values, are Key in Combatting Violent Extremism, Countering Radicalisation, and ensuring Security", as he characteristically stressed from the outset, into the EU High Level Conference here, Afterwards this Evening , (referring mainly to many People's expressed concerns, EarlierToday.


        + In this Context, 'EUROPOL"'s Director added, concerning also the above-mentioned Observation by Greek President Pavlopoulos, reminded to Tajani by "Eurofora", (Comp. Supra), that, in real Practice, "EuroPol's Officers" have just Started to Work Together with "FRONTEX's" Agents and EU CoastGuards, into Monitoring  EU's External Borders.

 

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


    ++ Tajani, naturally, did not ommit at all, to Also Launch certain Vibrant Appeals for Well Deserved and Mutually Beneficial, Humanitarian Support to real Refugees, as well as Development Aid and various Economic Measures, Both inside and Outside of Europe, particularly at the Countries of Origin and/or Transit, in order to Help Succeed Mass Migrants' Lives there :


    - Not as a kind of "Slaves", but, on the contrary, while Respecting their Human Dignity, as they might get a Job, have a Home, a Family, etc., he evoked, especialy on the 1st point.


    - As for the 2nd -and quite Larger- point, Tajani stressed, that, at any case, Something Important must be done to Boost Development, particularly in Africa, etc., given also the Huge Mass of People who might be incited, Otherwise, to Move Towards Europe, in the Next Few Years, from Economic and Climate factors:  In this regard, he suggested even the Interesting Idea to use also Modern, High-Tech. Means for Space Monitoring, (such as "GALILEO", Earth Observation, etc), of the real Situation's developments on the Ground, (f.ex. about Mass Population Movements, devastated or revitalized Agricultural Lands,  etc). But also European "SMEs' Direct Cooperation" with African and/or Other affected Countries' own SMEs, (etc).

    - In fact, our mainTask here is to Discuss with EU Citizens on Hot Topical Issues as recent Mass Migration, and bring the outcome into the EU Heads of State/Government's Brussels Summit, the next two Days, he pointed out, Later this Evening, in Conclusion of a well Attended, multifacet and multilevel, High-Level Conference on Migration Management Today, which gathered about 800 Participants from all over Europe.


    Tajani is, indeed, very Aware, also of the Fact that one among the Main Issues in the forthcoming European Elections of 2019, will also be that unprecedented Mass Migration. as he observed Earlier Today, (also as part of his Presidency's Duty to Start preparing well that Crucial 2019 Democratic Rendez-Vous, already "from the Beginning of 2017", as EU Parliament's Secretary General, Klaus Welle, had Warned "Eurofora", already as Early as since Autumn 2016, (See : ....), and its Strasbourg's Franco-German area's Press and information  Director Martinez, later Confirmed to "Eufofora", on March 2017.

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.

sarkozy_merkel_polls_400

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 ?
