*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).

 sarko_merkel_press_400

    Before the end of 2009, France and Germany will take strong initiatives to open "new Horizons" needed by Europe and the World, going well beyond the current Crisis' management, anounced French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angie Merkel, reassuring that both a judgement on Lisbon Treaty by nearby Karlsruhe German Federal Court, and the forthcoming National Elections in Germany would confirm their capacity to act.    

They were replying to Press questions in Berlin, after key-regional elections on Sunday, where Merkel's ChristianDemocratic party kept everywhere a strong 1st and won the possibility to forge a New Majority with Liberals at the largest of 3 Landers : Saxony (4 millions inhabitants), while its main competitor, the Socialdemocrat party fell to unprecedented lows : Tackled by the small "Linke" (left) party in Saarland (1 million inhabitants), it became even smaller than it in Saxony and Thuringen (3 million inhabitants), where SPD arrived only third. While its usual partners, the "Greens" also fell down, contrary to CDU's new partners, the FDP Liberals, who go up.

    - "At any case, at the end of the year (2009), if things go as scheduled, we shall take strong initiatives, showing that Europe needs a Franco-German axis, as well as the World, even if it never excludes other" countries to join, replied Sarkozy to a question if France and Germany will revive the "European dream", by "relauncing the EU motor" for the Future, with actions going further than the mere management of the global crisis, (as it was done fex. in the Past with the creation of the "Euro" Monetary zone, etc).

    - "I am convinced that the Franco-German friendship must be constantly nourished by New Projects", he added."There are many areas of cooperation where we intend to take, very soon, some Franco-German initiatives, which will allow to open more Horizons" to the EU, Sarkozy stressed.

    But if "we don't speak about that now, it's only in order to avoid interfering in important elections coming in Germany", he observed. However, "we have already started to consider the Future with the (German) Chancellor, and what we can do in order to honour our predecessors". "We are already speaking about that, and we are preparing things". "I am working very well together with Mrs Merkel, and I wish that it goes on", Sarkozy concluded.

    - "It's important for EU's credibility that France and Germany advance forward together", stressed Merkel from the outset. "Don't worry about Germany's capacity to undertake initiatives" with France, she added. "France and Germany will be perfectly able to make proposals" for the EU.

    -  "After-crisis" plans must be prepared, meanwhile, with measures "advancing progressively", Merkel anounced. And, for the short term, we must deal also with EU Citizens' dismay since they feel that it's a Scandal for some in the Financial Markets to be paid with excessive "Bonuses", etc, she agreed with Sarkozy.

    - "Abuses in financial markets must stop", stressed also Sarkozy. Backing Merkel's announcement that France and Germany call for an EU meeting to forge "a crystal-clear European position" in view of the G-14 Summit at Pittsburg, he warned that "everyone will have to undertake his responsibilities, in front of World's Public Opinion. particularly those who don't want to make the same effort of regulation as France and Germany".

    Moreover, "Global Trade cannot be correctly dealt, without taking into account also Environmental and Social rules", Sarkozy added, referring to recently expressed positions against Unfair Competition via Environmental and/or Social Dumping, (See earlier "EuroFora"'s publications).

    Such moves are obviously linked to the need to ensure at least an elementary respect for Human Rights by Third Countries, (f.ex. exploitation of Children's work, etc) in order to avoid, precisely, any such Social Dumping.

    - "EU has Values, protecting Human Rights and Human Dignity", and "it cannot close its eyes" in front of grave violations, particularly "Torture and/or killings", added, indeed, Sarkozy.

    Thus, "the time comes, where decisions must be taken". But, in case of "Sanctions", "all International opinion should be convinced of the need to take action", he observed.

    Expressed on the occasion of recent developments in Iran, the same principles should logically apply also to other similar cases, including fex. that of Hundreds of ECHR judgements' condemning f;ex. Turkey for grave crimes, (as Torture, brutal Killings, Enforced "Disappearances", Destruction of Family Homes, harassments and oppressive violations of Freedom of Speech, etc).

    Meanwhile, questioned on (EU Commission's chair)  Barroso's bid to succeed himself for a second mandate, they both expressed a "wish" or a "feeling" that "EU Parliament"'s various political Groups might fix a date for decisions "during September". However, is he is endorsed before the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty, it will be legally necessary to re-vote anew for a full term of office afterwards, according to EU Legal Experts, revealed recently in Strasbourg the experienced former President of EU Parliament's Constitutional Committee, German Socialist MEP Jo Leinen. And Germany will not vote for Lisbon Treaty's ratification but only "on September 8 and 18", revealed Merkel, ( i.e. after EU Parliament's plenary session in Strasbourg).

    - Therefore, "for EU Commissioners' appointment, it's too early yet, because we must wait for the ratification of Lisbon Treaty" by all 27 EU Member countries, including naturally Ireland's Referendum on early October, said to "EuroFora" the influential President of EU Parliament's largest group of MEPs, Joseph Daul, expressing, however, the hope that a controversial deal with the head of the Socialist Group of MEPs, Martin Schultz of Germany, might hold for Barroso alone, at a forthcoming vote due to fix the Strasbourg plenary's Agenda.

    But MEPs reportedly just "postponed" for 1 week all their previously scheduled group meetings (See : http://www.euractiv.com/en/future-eu/barroso-unveil-summer-homework-week/article-184825 );

    However, while the choice of a new EU Commission's President by EU Parliament is supposed, according to many MEPs' wish, take place according to EU policy issues, paradoxically, this would mean that Barroso's bid would pass before even the anouncement of France and Germany's "initiatives" for EU's "new Horizons"...

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 ?
