*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- The Chief of the Biggest EU Parliament's Group of MEPs : that of ChristianDemocrats/EPP, Manfred Weber from Germany, Replying to an "Eurofora" Question at his Press Conference Today, on Erdogan's threat to Return ISIS' islamist Terrorists Back to Europe, launched a Call to Stop the controversial and unpopular EU Accession Talks with Turkey !



- "Eurofora" pointed at notorious Recent Threats by the Turkish Government to Return Back to Europe arrested ISIS Islamist Terrorists asap, and stressed that this Raises not only an obvious Security Problem, but Also a Question of eventual Impunity.

Because, if there is No Trial on the Spot, there where ISIS' notorious Crimes Targetting Civilian People were Committed, where Witnesses and Victims' Families are living, and Traces remain, (i.e. somewhere between Syria and Iraq, near Turkey's Borders), but, on the Contrary, they might be send back to Europe, Separated among Various EU Member States, and Far Away from the events, then, in Addition to obvious Security Issues, it might even Become More Dificult to Do Justice, as Many Voices have Asked, including Yazidi Women Victims awarded EU and CoE Prizes, CoE's competent Rapporteur on ISIS' Crimes, Dutch MEP Peter Omzigt, etc.

Moreover, if a kind of International Court was Set up to Judge ISIS' Crimes there where they have been Committed, as some have Already Highlighted Recently, (included, f.ex., among the Global Coalition against ISIS, etc), similarly o, f.ex., the Courts for Ex-Yugoslavia, for Rwanda, etc., then, this could Also have a useful Pedagogical Effect, for the Public to Better Know and keep a Collective Memory of what has happened, "Eurofora" observed in Addition.


 - "Security Issues are National Responsibility", skiped Weber, in his Reply to "Eurofora"s Question, the above-mentioned, on the spot International Court possibility.



>>> - "But You are Referring also to the Bigger Question : how to Deal with Turkey", the Frontrunner "SpitzenKandidate" in the latest and popular 2019 EU Parliament's Elections, observed.

- "And there, you know, having the Last EU's Council Meeting in mind, when we Discussed also how to deal with Northen Macedonia, Albania, etc.,  

=> "for me, it's simply Not Undestandable that we (EU) Continue our Enlargment Talks wih Turkey, while we (EU) opt to Not Open Negotiaton Talks with North Macedonia and Albania :"  Because "it is Not possible to Explain that to any among our (EU) Citizens accross the whole EU !", he Denounced...

>>> - "So that, if there is a will to have a Broader Discussion, then, the pre-Condition is to Stop Enlargement Talks with Turkey, and sit Together fo find a Common Understanding on What to do" next, President Weber Urged.

 - On the Contrary, "the Provocative aproach of (Turkish) President Erdogan in the Last Weeks, is Not an approach where we can find, finally ,a Solution", he regretted.

- "And the EU must be Clear about this :  If there is a Readiness for Compromise, then, Both have to react to the other", the Head of EU Parliament's Biggest Group of MEPs pointed out.

    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.                


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 ?
