*Strasbourg/Critical News-ViewPoint/-  New Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte's "flip-flop" on Russia's return back to a fully-fledged "G-8", instead of the current, curtailed and diminished "G-7", (provoked since 2014 by Former POTUS Barack Hussein Obama's "Miss Nuland"-monitored aufull Mess in Ukraine, previously a Peaceful and promising, European Culture Country), is not clear :


- Didn't the Italian People's large Majority vote to put, at last, an End to "Sanctions" against Russia, which Divided the European Continent and still Limit its Economic/Scientific and Technological Development, (as even the New Rome Government's explicitly Agreed Program reads) ?


- Why Turkey, which is notoriously accustomed to do very much Worse things than Russia, (from Genocides, to "Ethnic Cleansings", Military Invasions/Occupations, Massive and brutal Violations of Human Rights, local/regional and national Democracy trampled underfoot, Armed Bullying and War Threats, etc), is getting, these same years, instead of "Sanctions", on the Contrary, ...+3,5 Billions € in full Grants each Year, from EU Taxpayers' Money, (in addition to its "usual" 1 Billion €, i.e. a bulk of more than +4,5 Billions € in yearly Grants), while also being still Invited to "G-20" Summits ?...


- Most Italian Newspapers were proudly publishing Frontpage Headline News on Conte's endorsement of US President Trump's call for Russia to get back Home inside a "G-8", when, suddenly, it was announced that, in fact, at the last minute, Conte would have yielded under pressure...


But Don Trump's earlier relevant statement also, significantly, stressed that, in fact, - "We have a World to run !"


And he, notoriously, said that, by a Double Coincidence :


-  Both the Same Day that Deadly Islamist Terrorists of ISIL's Cowards who Target even innocent Civilian People, after a Recent Resurgence of a New Series of Bloody Attacks throughout Europe, in Afghanistan, etc., (since the Diversion provoked by Turkey's Military Invasion and Occupation of Syria's Kurdish Canton of Afrin on 2018), re-started anew to Invade and Occupy a City, near Syria's Borderline with Iraq;


- and at the Eve of the forthcoming, Crucial Singapore Summit with Northern Korea's Leader Kim Jong-un, scheduled for the 12th of June, from which depends if the World will manage to make an Historic breakthrough for Peace and stability, or fall back to an even more Dangerous Cold War era with the addition of unstable Nuclear Weapons' Tensions.


In such a Context, wouldn't a "traditional" fully-fledged "G-8", bringing Back Russia Together with the EU, USA, Canada and Japan, (if not, sooner or later, even a New ..."G-9", bringing In also China - as, inter alia, also f.ex. France had suggested as a Possible development, already as early as since the May 2011 "G-8" Summit in Deauville, during a Press Conference), be obviously Helpful in order to turn this mechanism into a Really "Global" one, and, eventually, give a Hand for a Succesful Preparation of that Crucial USA - N.Korea Summit, from which depends Global Peace and prevention of Nuclear Weapons' course threatening desastrous clashes ?


The Reply is naturaly "Yes", since this is, in practice, a Last Chance for Global Diplomacy among the Biggest Countries on Earth, (with the EU playing also a Useful Role in World Affairs), to try, all Together, to Help Save our Planet from UnPrecedented Risks of Nuclear Tensions and Threats.


Where is, these same Days, Russian President Vladimir Putin ? Visiting ...China, to meet with President Xi Jiping, inaugurate a High-Speed Train Link, etc. But, wouldn't it be Better, if these Leaders (notoriously Influent also vis a vis Northern Korea, etc), were, Now, Meeting and Exchanging Together with the EU, USA, Japan and Canada, etc., inter alia, also on How to Help, all Together, to Prepare a Succesful Negotiation and Deal with N.Korea's President Kim, on the occasion of the forthcoming, Crucial Singapore Meeting with USA's new President Don Trump, able to Safeguard World Peace ?


German Chancelor Angie Merkel, certainly, cannot forget that her initial Mentor, and Long-Time close Ally, the Historic former Chancelor Helmut Kohl, who playe a Key Role Both for the ReUnification of Europe after 1989, and EU Integration in the 1990ies, had notoriously Regretted and Criticized the Exclusion of Russia from the former "G-8" Summit format, (as f.ex. that of Heiligendam, back on 2007, that Merkel Chaired hershelf : Comp. "Eurofora" co-Founder's NewsReports from the spot, then Published mainly by "TCWeekly", etc).


Neither could, the French President Emmanuel Macron ignore his Historic predecessor, General De Gaulle's famous Plaidoyerie for "a Great Europe, extending from tha Atlantic Ocean, up to the Ural Mountains", and well beyond...


And the current "G-7" Host Country, Canada, also certainly canNot Neglect the Fact that, (in addition to Japan, etc), it's also, f.ex., ...Toronto City which is much Closer to Northern Korea's eventual Nuclear Rockets, than USA's Washington D.C. ...


So that, in fact, almost Everybody involved in those "Global" Summits, has, in one way or another, a Real Interest and Duty to become Helpful for World Peace, by contributing whatever is possible, appropriate and necessary for that Noble Aim, in real practice, hic and nunc.

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)...
