*Brussels/EU Summit/Angelo Marcopolo/- Replying to an "Eurofora" Question at a Press Briefing during the EU Summit in Brussels of December 2019, the New Greek Government's Spokesman and Minister of Communication Stelios Petsas, (a well trusted former Director of Office for the New Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis), confirmed that there is also an EU General Interest to slam the illegal and provocative Turkish M.U. with Shaky Libyan Government Officials, (who don't control not even 20% of that Divided Country), that the Libyan Assembly did Not endorse, about infringing on EU Member and Other States' EEZ in the Mediterranean Sea, as recently Growing Indications for Important off-shore Energy Oil/Gas Resources are Extending from Cyprus and Israel with Egypt, towards Greece, etc.

- "Eurofora" had asked Petsas whether he felt that there was a Crystal-clear Awareness and Conscience of EU's General Interest to Protect the Integrity and Safety of its Energy Sources and/or Direct Energy Supply Routes from New Findings at the South-Eastern Mediterranean Sea, including Creta Island' surroundings, particularly as the Northern Sea's Previous Findings have notoriously been Exhausted, and while Turkey's various Added Interference and/or Blackmail Attempts Obviously show that Europeans would Better Focus on their own and Friendly, Turstworthy Countries' Resources and Direct Transport Routes.

- Government Spokesman Petsas replied Positively, noting, in Substance, that New Greek Prime Minister Mitsotakis' 3 main Keypoints of Criticism versus that Controversial Turkish provocative move, due to be Discussed by the EU Summit Later this Evening, i.e. the Fact that it's an Aggresive act against even EU Member Countries' Sovereignity, Contrary to International Law and withOut any Legal effect, which must be clearly Denounced and strongly Faced by the EU, already, indirectly but surely, helped certainly Advance towards the above-mentioned Direction among EU Member Countries, (Comp. Supra).

=> - At any case, moreover, "in each Contact, Multilateral or Bilateral, that we have in this regard, we Highlight these Points, (evoked by "Eurofora" : Comp. Supra), and we hope that they will emerge, in one way or another, also from the Conclusions of this Summit" (of the European Council), key Greek Minister Petsas confirmed in his Reply to our Question.
 

=> Indeed, Later this Evening, the relevant Conclusions of this December 2019 EU Summit in Brussels, "Recalled" and "reConfirmed" "its Previous Conclusions on Turkey, of ...March and ...June", as well as "...October" 2019, "concerning Turkish lllegal Drilling activities in Cyprus' Exclusive Economic Zone", which strongly Slamed such moves and prepared concrete Sanctions, (See, f.ex.: ..., ..., etc).

-  "The Turkey-Libya Memorandum of Understanding on the delimitation of Maritime Jurisdictions in the Mediterranean Sea infringes upon the Sovereign Rights of 3rd States, does Not Comply with the Law of the Sea, and canNot produce Any Legal Consequences for 3rd States", unanimously stressed EU's 28 Member States.

- Therefore, "the European Council unequivocally reAffirms its Solidarity with Greece and Cyprus, regarding these actions by Turkey", this BRX EU Summit underlined Firmly.


A shaky makeshift Government in besieged Tripoli claims to rule on huge Libya, whose territory is, however, held for around 80% by General Haftar's "National Libyan Army", as well as the Majority in the Country's Senate (Assembly of Nationalities).


Various  Smugglers, Human Traffiquers (including Ransomers of Migrants, etc), and/or relevant shady NGOs are reportedly Headquarted around Tripoli, added to several Islamist Gangs, (an ISIS' Compound included), while such problems are reportedly absent at the Other parts of the Country. Desperate after another recent call of General Haftar to seize the Capital, Tripoli's Minority Rulers were offered a Military Intervention by Turkey, which has already been found in breach of Arms Embargo by the UN, according to the "Guardian".

    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.
