*Brussels/EU Summit/Angelo Marcopolo/-  EU Commission's President, Jean-Claude Juncker, Criticized the Obstacles which still Prevent him from Negotiating an adequate way Out of a reciprocally damaging Sanctions Deadlock with Russia, which has notoriously Divided the European continent since Barack Hussein Obama's re-election, from 2013-2014.


- Speaking to Journalists, including "Eurofora", during a Press Conference at EU Summit in Brussels, Juncker acknowledged that the EU Commission has Not yet been given a Mandate by the EU Council, in order to Negotiate with Russia.

- The Cause of that resides in an Absence of required Unanimity, between EU Member States, on this point, he criticized.


 - But I think that EU Commission should have such a Mandate, Juncker denounced, in substance, openly.


- If those obstacles were lifted, an EU - Russia Move (including Visits to/from Moscow, etc) would be made somewhere between this Autumn 2017 and the First Months of 2018, he Highlighted.


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


- Earlier Today in Brussels, a ChristianDemocrat/EPP Leaders' Summit, had "Not really Discussed the issue of Russia now", said to "Eurofora" previously the Frontrunner and Biggest Winner in the recent Austrian Election, Sebastien Kurz, who has already expessed, in the Past, some Interesting Ideas in this regard, including for the creation of a Big Free Trade Area, between Portugal and Vladivostoc, to Boost the PanEuropean Economy, etc. (For Other Kurz's statements to "Eurofora", see: ...).

+ EU Commission's President Juncker, speaking to "Eurofora" at EU Parliament in Strasbourg in the Recent Past, had Strongly Supported the Franco-German Leaders' initial attempt to broker Peace in Ukraine, already since the Eve of the partially Successfull "Minsk" Agreements. Also, Later on, when he had presented his pro-Investments' Plan, Juncker had told us, Characteristically, that : - "Peace is the Best Investment of all !", (See: ...+...).


++ In Addition, experienced OECD Secretary General, Angel Guria, speaking Earlier to "Eurofora", has Admitted the Fact that the Barack Hussein Obama-led "Sanctions" against Russia, and their Recercussions, have already Affected Negatively EU's Economic Growth, which could and should have been much Better, withOut such artificial problems.


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


+++ Meanwhile, in Parallel, on a Similar, but Not Identical, Issue, it's also the Strasbourg's PanEuropean Organisation of the 47 Member States' strong CoE, which is currently Starting to rapidly Seek an Agreement with Russia on settling Past Disputes, (including, mainly, a Controversial 2014-2015 move which had Pushed Russian MEPs to Withdraw from CoE's Parliamentary Assembly:


Already, CoE's Secretary General, Thornbjord Jagland, (a former socialist Prime Minister of Norway, twice elected in a position similar to that of Juncker, mutatis-mutandis), officially anounced that he will Visit soon Moscow. And a similar move might be asap. undertaken also by the New President of CoE's PanEuropean Parliamentary Assembly, Christiandemocrat/EPP MEP Stella Kyriakides from Cyprus, (Comp., among many relevant NewsReports, also:     ...+... , etc).

    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.
