*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- An embattled but apparently reVigorated French President Emmanuel Macron, just After Facing even Personaly a Virus' Infection, that he Succeeded to Overcome, Becoming Naturaly Immune, Urged Today to "Look to the Future", foreseeing a "New French Morning", and a "European ReNaissance", Starting by somewhere through 2021, towards a "2030" Horizon "to Build".

- "That's where We are Heading", he Stressed, Launching a Call to "the "People" to be "United, with Solidarity, Proud of our History, its Values and its Culture, Trusting in Future and Progress, Sure of its Talent, Energy and Ambition, Whatever it happens, Let's Be Proud. Proud to be "Us", the Young Franco-European Leader Ambitiously Concluded.

- "We must Not Add to the Cost of the (Pandemic Virus) Crisis, Even a Lack of Action", he Warned. On the Contrary, "we Must Continue to Act, Transform, Advance ahead, ... by Fighting against the Virus, by Fighting against its Economic and Social Consequences", in order to "Build" the Future, Macron Highlighted.

- "Hope is Alive in the Freedom that we shall Find Anew, in the Strength of Our Culture, ...even in the Lessons that we'll get From this Crisis, for More Simplicity, Efficiency, and, sometimes, Just Common Sense", he Soberly pointed out.

- Indeed, "Hope is Here, Growing Every Day, in this (Socio-Economic) ReLaunch, which is Already Sparking", "and Will Allow, from the Spring (2021), to Invent a Stronger Economy, Both Creating Jobs, and More Innovative, more Respectful of Climate, BioDiversity, as well as of Solidarity", he promised.

- Meanwhile, speaking of "Vaccines", he Vowed to be, "Fully Determined", "to Not Let Anyone Play with the Safety and Good Conditions, in which Vaccinations must take place, With Our Scientists and Medical Doctors", as he Ensured the People, (Despite Hasty Moves by some USA and EU Agencies, who recently Rushed to Grasp some Controversial First-Commers, among Many and Various Kinds of Vaccines currently in Preparation, withOut having Even Discussed, Previously, some Probable New Questions of Crucial Importane for People's Health and for the Society at large, as "Eurofora" Warned Twice, with Concrete Facts and Arguments : See ... + ..., etc).

+ But "I will Not Let, an UnJustified Delay to be imposed for Bad Reasons, No More", he Added, Promissing that "Everyone who Wishes to become Vaccinated, must be Able to do so", "with Certainty, and in a Good Order, Starting by those Who Face More Risks", (i.e. Medical Staff, Elders and Other Fragile People, etc).

- "Already", we "crossed this Year (2020) with Unity and Resilience, to which Nothing Resists". Despite "these Hard Times", We "were Able to Innnovate, Invent", and "be Generous", so that "Everything becomes Possible", he Optimisticaly encouraged. So that, "in 2021, whatever happens, We Shall Know how to Face the (various) Crisis : Sanitary, Socio-Economic, Terrorist, Climate's", etc., "which are Not going to Disappear just after the January 1st..." he Warned. On the Contrary, "the First Months of this Yeart Will be Didfficult, and the Epidemic will Still Hamper a Lot against our Social Life", Macron soberly Warned.

-è But, "in 2021, whatever happens, We shall Also Know how to Face the Challenges to come, Because we have been Prepared for that" : F.ex.,

(1) "the Ecological Transition and Protection of the BioDiversity, by applying Proposals of the <<Citizens' Convention>>", (an Original Participatory Attempt, Recently set up in France), "and Other Reforms";

(2) "The Fight for the Republic and Our Values, the Secular society, Brotherhood, More Security";

(3) "Advance in our Commitment for Merit, Work, Equality of Chances, Fight Against All InEqualities and Dicriminations".

- "The Trials that we Faced, Might have Reduced our Enthousiasm, Limit Hope. But this is Not the case !" On the Contrary, "Hope is here", he Voluntaristicaly stressed.

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

    But, Unfortunately, Some Technocrats seem to have Lied, at least on 1 Important Point, to the Young President of France, by Hiding him the Truth...

    Because he was led to go on Believing that - "Hope is in this Vaccine, that the Human Genius made in Only 1 Year", while "this was UnThinkable, some Months Ago !".

    However, the Truth is that "Pfizer"'s Turkish Fake-"Vaccine", is Not Really a "Vaccine", (But anOther Kind of Novel Medical Tool), Since,

- Even if it Might, Perhaps, Leave the Individuals who Receive it, withOut Symptoms of the Virus, (at least for a 3 Months-Long Period, since, as things stand Nowadays, it canNot Yet Guarantee a Longer Protection Time, for the moment),

- >>> Nevertheless, there is Not Yet Any Guarantee at all, concerning the Open Still Question : Whether it Might, or Not, Stop the Spreading of the Virus vis a vis All the Other People in the Society !

    Because, in Fact, due to the Novel, Particular Technology used here, (via m-ARN Manipulation, inside the Human Genome, Artificialy Triggering the Production of a Key Protein), Nothing is Yet Known about What Might Happen regarding all the Other People, who could be Contacted, Afterwards, by the Recipient...

=> In Consequence, this Might, Even, ...Aggravate the Spread of Virus' Infections in a Society, Because the Recipents may Refuse any "Quarantine", since they are Asymptomatic, and, in Addition, all the Other People may be "Blind" or UnWare of this Threat Against their own Health and Life, as long as Nobody Knows Yet about the Danger that those Recipients might Still Present to the Society in a kind of "Stealth" or "Covert" way !

    "Eurofora" has Clearly Warned, (Oraly at 2 EU Press Encounters, and by Web-Published Articles Twice : See http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/pfijfyjhjh.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/fdaandcontroversialvirusvaccines.html, etc), what Some Others had Just Vaguely and Briefly Evoked, (including "Los Angeles Times", "the Guardian", "AP", "Naftemporiki.gr", "FDA"s Documents in the "Pfizer"/Turkish case, etc). And this kind of "New Problem", UnPrecedented in Real Vaccine's History, (to the point to be UnConceivable by Un-Warned People !), has just Started to be aNew Observed, (particularly Disguised under a Confusing Vocabulary around "Asymptomatic" Individuals, etc., But sometimes even Directly), somehow Better in "FDA"'s more Recent Documents on "Moderna"s Armenian Similar Pseudo-"Vaccine", (But Still InSufficiently visible), as well as more or less Mentioned, Briefly, in Various Other Short Publications, (f.ex. on Israel : See "Breitbart", or by "Statista" Web-News, etc).

    => In Consequence, a Great Precaution is due in Dealing with so UnCertain, still, Novel Issues, of UnKnown Yet Dimension, Instead of Misleading a Leader with Grossly Inacurate or False Impressions, as Someone seems to have Scandalously done here, apparently Abusing of the Trust of the Young French President, (despite of his intelligence)...

    These Facts do Not Exclude at all the, Otherwise, great Importance of Macron's General Statements, (Comp. Supra and Infra), But "Eurofora", by Journalistic Deontology and simple Human and Social Obligation, including by Respect to the French President himself, had the Duty to simply Say the Truth, in a so Serious matter for People's Health and Lives.

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

    + More Convincing, Macron Innovated, in his Speech, by Describing 10 Original Stories of Simple People, who followed various "Exemplary Pathways", serving as "Compass for Future Times", "Revealed by the Epidemic" of Deadly Virus :

- Calling Each one by their Names, from a Young Nurse, eager to Serve face the Urgencies, to a Cleaning Lory Driver working round the ckock at far away Guyane, or an SME Businessman rapidly ReConverting his Factory in order to meet a Fast Growing Demand for Protective Masks, a Kid Giving his Tablet in order to Help Isolated Elder People Communicate with their Family and Friends, (making Many Followers), a Book-Keeper "Innovating" with Internet Networks in order to Succesfully reach her Clients, added to a Policeman atruggling, at a Rural area, to Urgently Save the Lives of 70 Elder People from the an Inundated Facility, added to his Collegues who Stopped a Terrorist Attack against a Church, and to 3 Other Policemen Killed while Trying to Help a Woman Victim of Aggressive Violence, as well as another 3 Soldiers Killed during an Operation at Africa's Mali : all Named "National Heroes", But Also a Foreign Origin Professor seeking advice from his French Collegues on how to Speak to his Pupils about "Secular" Society's Values, just After the Horrible Murder of Samuel Patty by a Coward Islamist Terrorist, (in the "Mohamed Cartoons" and "Free Speach" row), in order to Help Raise Young Republicans, added to a Woman Football Player, Leading her Team to Win a Champions' 1st Prize, in the middle of Obstacles for Training and Empty Stadiums, Concluding by that 78 Years Old Woman, Isolated at a Care Facility, who Dared become the 1st French to take a (Controversial : Comp. Supra) "Vaccine" against the Virus, giving "a Message of Hope" this year, (etc),

    => Emmanuel Macron Found a Rock-Solid Ground among those Brave, simple French People, those "Thousands of Anonymous" actors, Looking "like Your Sister, Your Neighbour, Your Friends", and Many Others who, "Committed, and with Solidarity, Supported Our Country during this Harsh Trial", as he stressed. "Everything is Possible for a People Able, during those Difficult Times, of such Innovation, Inventivity, Generosity"...

    Such a Voluntaristicaly Optimist Tone by the Young French President, in his New Year's Eve Speech, Significantly, comes After China has Notoriously Won the Fight against the Virus Earlier, throughout that Huge, 1,3 Billions People - Strong Country, Even WithOut Any "Miraculous" Pseudo-"Vaccine", Neither Any Novel "Drug" Yet , Nor a "Dr. Fauci", etc., But just a Strong, Conscious and Motivated Socio-Political Will                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       to Fight all Together for Humanity's Survival facing an imminent Deadly Threat... Not that a Good and Efficient High-Tech might not be needed, (in fact it Does, a Lot), But rather Because it Must be Always Guided by Human Consience, Forged in a consequent, Collective Fight, and  Free Public Topical Debates, Stimulating the Best Collective Intelligence, that France and all Europe are Able to offer..., (as "Eurofora" had Already a Chance to Evoke with President Macron, at Various Occasions, including with the Nearby Vosges Mountains' Oxygen, when, just After a Landmark Speech at EU Parliament, he had Officialy Launched the so-called "European Citizens' Public Consultations"' 1st Attempt, Comp., f.ex., at : ..., etc).                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

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

    - However, at any case, "This (Last) Year 2020 canNot be Resumed Only in that Epidemic, Even if it Changed our Lives", Macron observed. Because, Despite such Big Challenges, "We managed to conduct the Necessary Transformations, and Strengthen our Credibility", as well as "convince Germany, and Afterwards the Other EU Member Countries, to conceive a(n EU) Relaunch Plan, Unique and Masssive, and Decide a Joint Debt with Solidarity, in order to Better Prepare Our (EU's) Future, by a Commitment to Ecologic and Digital Transitions, as well as by Creating the Greatest Possible Number of Jobs for Our Youth", he Reminded, (Obviously speaking of the July 2020 EU Brussel's -Longest Ever- Summit : See at: .... + ... +...., etc).

    - "That's what We have Built in 2020", he stressed. Because, "Our Destiny is, First of all, in Europe !". Naturaly, "Our Sovereignity is National, and I'll do everything in order to Find anew the Control over our Destiny and Lives", he Vowed. "But, Our (France's) Sovereignity goes, Also, Through a Stronger Europe, More Autonomous, More United", Macron clearly stressed.

    + Regardless of that, meanwhile, "ToNight, for the 1st Time, a Country : the UK, will Leave the EU", he noted. Indeed, "We (the EU) have Agreed, some Days Ago, a Deal, in order to Organize our Future Relations with it (the UK), by Defending Our Interests, Our Industries, Our Fishermen, and Our European Unity", as he said.

    => However, "the UK Remains Our Neighbour, But Also Our Friend, and Our Ally !", the French President clearly underlined. In Fact, "that Choice, to Leave Europe, that "BREXIT", was Born out of a European Ill-Feeling, with Many Lies, and False Promisses", he Criticized. (On this Occasion : See Anew "Eurofora"s Original Overview and NewsReport Published at the Moment of that 2016 British Referendum on Brexit, where, We Point at Surprizing Facts Showing that, most Probably, the Real Aspirations of a Majority of British People were Not Against Europe, But, rather, in Favour of a -Not Achieved Yet- Real Europe ! Comp. at : ...).

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

    - "Concerning the Last Year, "2020", "Yes", it's True that "this Year Was Hard : It Reminded Our Vulnerabilities", he Acnowledged, meanwhile, Macron, (while All Europe, UK and even Russia Included, have Notoriously Become the ...Epicenter of that Pandemic Crisis, since March 2020)...                                                                                                                                 

    - However, things "were Even More UnJust for the Most Fragile People", he Regreted. Indeed, "I Think at All those Fellow Citizens, who live in Precarious Situations, Sometimes in Poverty, for whom the Crisis that we are crossing makes EveryDay Lives Even More Difficult", Macron acknowledged.

    >>> - "But, Together, We Manage Better United, and have Learned a lot". Indeed; "We are Grateful to those who have been Mobilized in order to Take Care, Feed, Educate, Protect, All those who, by their Work, their Commitment, Allowed us to Stand at Our Feet, and Together, during those Difficult Months, and who do the Same thing Even ToNight" : i.e. "Our Fellow Citizens Working in the Sectors of Culture, Sport, Restoration, Hôtels, Events, or suffering Students, Affected even More than others : I Want to Tell them that We'll Be There, Naturaly in order to Help them Get Out of this Situation, the Soonest", "and in order to Allow them to Hold on, during that Period, so Hard and UnJust for them, where we ask them to Work Differently, and Sometimes, Even to Renounce to their Activities", he Regretted....

    >>> However, "this Historic Test has Also Revealed Our Solidity : " Indeed, "Despite that Pandemic, We have Never Renounced to pursue Our Ambition of Progress for Everyone", inter alia, also, f.ex., "by Lowering Taxes, by Opening New Rights, (like the Leave for those who Help Others, the Prolongation of Paternity Leave), by Supporting them with Subsidies, by ReConverting our Cars parc, by Opening "French Services Houses" throughout the Territories, by Investing in Our Sovereignity and Our Research in an Historic way, by striving to Produce More inside France and (all) Europe", etc. While "Our Care-Takers (Medical Staff) have Not Only Coped, Butwe have Also Engaged a Transformation in Depth, with Historic Investments, For our Health, whose Pertinence Will be Revealed During the Next few Years". In fact, "We are among those who have Most Intervened in order to Protect and accompagny the Young People, the Workers, the Businessmen", etc. And "I assume that "WhatEver it Might Cost", Because it has Allowed to Save Lives, and Protect Jobs", Macron ensured.

    + Nowadays, "We have to Build Together those Replies which Will Allow to Avoid any Heavy Burden for the Future Generations", he Warned, however.

    - But, "Today, it's Not a December 31st As All Others... There, where, in Our Cities and Villages, this Hour is Usually for Large Gatherings", on the Contrary, "this Year, they are Prohibited by the Epidemic : Our Communal Squares are withOut Lights, our Housholds Less Cheerfull than usual", and "the Year 2020 Ends, therefore, as it had Started : By Efforts and Restrictions. And I'm fully Aware of the Sacrifices that I Asked You to do, by the Decisions that I Had to take..." Also, in the Name of All the People, "let's Think, ToNight, at those 64.000 Victims of the Virus" (in France alone), "their Families and Friends : Parents, Friends, integral Parts of the French Imaginary (f.ex. Artists, Writers, Top Politicians, Athlets, etc), have Left away, these Last Months", he regretted.

     - Nevertheless, President Macron "Thanked" the People "for Your Civic Sens" and "that Spirit of Collective Responsibility, thanks to which We have Saved a Lot of (other) Lives, and which Allows us, Nowadays, to Hold Better than many others, in Front of the Epidemic" as he said.

    - So that, Now, "Together, United, Let's Look Ahead of us, Look towards the Future", in order "to Prepare, Today, that Spring of 2021", (Comp. Supra), so that "2021 Becomes a Happy and Useful Year", Macron Invited in Conclusion.

Recent developments proved that Europe can suceed to overcome challenges by aiming at great objectives, and this is needed also in 2009, said EU chairman, French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

    - "It's in the name of Great Ideas, Projects, Ambition and Ideals, that EU can overcome" challenges, stressed Sarkozy at EU Parliament in Strasbourg, in conclusion of a dense 7 months EU Chairmanship. "It's even easier for Europe to have Great projects, able to overcome national egoism, instead of limiting itself only to small projects" (unable to do alike), he observed.     

- "Europe must remain Ambitious and understand that the World needs her to take Decisions". "The World needs a Strong Europe", which "thinks on its own, has convictions, its own responses, its imagination" : "A Europe which does not limit itself into following" others, (as it did in the Past, when it followed USA, f.ex. on Bosnia). On the contrary, "Europe should undertake its own responsibilities", he said, after a series of succes in stopping the War between Russia and Georgia, and organizing the 1st EuroZone's Summit in Paris, which incited the Washington DC G-20 Summit to extend similar decisions World-wide.  


    - "When you sweep it all under the carpet, prepare yourself for hard tomorrows", he warned. "What hinders decisions is the lack of Courage and Will, the fading away of Ideals", he stressed before EU Parliament's 2008 debate on Human Rights and Sakharov prize on Freedom of thought attributed by MEPs to Chinese cyber-dissident Hu Jia, followed by an EU - Turkey meeting on Friday.

    - "I don't abandon my convictions" and "I will take initiatives" on EU level also in 2009, Sarkozy announced later. "France will not stop having convictions and taking initiatives" on Europe. + "It's an Error to wish to pass over the Heads of those who are elected in their Countries" : "It's an integrism I always fought against"', he warned.
---------------------
French EU Presidency faced 4 unexpected Crisis :

- An institutional crisis, with the Irish "No" to EU Lisbon Treaty, just before it started. A geopolitical crisis, wth the threat of War between Russia and Georgia risking to throw Europe back to Cold-war divisions, on August. A World-wide Financial and Economic crisis, arriving at a bad moment before crucial 2009 EU elections. And even a Strasbourg's mini-crisis, with EU Parliament's roof curiously falling down, from unknown reasons, in a brand new building on August, provoking an unprecedented transfert of the 2 September Plenary Sessions...

But it wasn't enough to stop Sarkozy ! On the contrary, it stimulated him...
---------------------------------------

- "The better way to deal with the recent problems of EU institutions (as the "3 NO" by France, the Netherlands and Ireland) is to take them as a "Test" in order to find solutions closer to Citizens' concerns", said later in Strasbourg Sarkozy's new choice as Ministe for EU affairs, Bruno Le Maire.

- On the Institutional front, Sarkozy gave Time to the Irish to think about it, and stroke on December a deal including a New Referendum after the June 2009 EU Elections, in exchange of a promise to keep the rule of "one EU Commissioner for each EU Member Country", and some opt-outs on Defence and Fiscal EU policies, Abortion, etc. If the Irish get a "Yes" Majority, then the institutional package could be completed in 2010 or 2011 on the occasion of Croatia's probable EU accession.

He was accused in Strasbourg to upgrade EU Council and downgrade EU Commision, but he replied that "strong Political initiatives by EU Council reinforce also the more technical role of EU Commission, under the political-technical leadership of its President", all 3 "working together with EU Parliament".


- But, meanwhile, Sarkozy energetically spearheaded an Historic 1st Summit of EuroZone's 15 Heads of State and Government at EU's core, exceptionally enlarged to a partial participation of British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, on October 12 in Paris' Elysee palace, which started to tackle succesfully the growing world Financial crisis.

    It also paved the way for its endorsement by a subsequent Brussels' 27 EU Member States' gathering, before it all come to Washington's G-20 Summit. And "Europe was united, it asked for the 1st G-20 Summit, and it will also organise the next G-20 Summit on April in London", he observed.   

 But a Conference with EU, Russia, African and other Developing Countries, hosted in Strasbourg shortly after Washington G-20 Summit by the French EU Presidency, took a Resolution asking to enlarge participation to Global Economic Governance. Many found, indeed, illogic and unacceptable that f.ex. states as Turkey were given a seat at G-20 level, while all African Countries, and even the African Union itself, representing the greatest Continent on Earth, were excluded...


    Meanwhile, even USA''s "Paulson No 3" Plan, was, in fact, inspired by Europe's No 1 Plan", Sarkozy observed, largelly applauded by MEPs.

    And "Europe showed Solidarity" by mobilizing some 22 Billion credit for Hungary, 1,7 billion for Ukraine, as we do nowadays for Baltic States, etc., he added.

    The move on Economy was extended on December by an EU stimulus' plan totalling some 200 billion Euros, including 5 Billions released by EU Commission for big Projects, as well as various parallel National plans for Economic revival, (fex. 26 billions in France alone). They might appear limited, compared to USA President-elect Obama's reported plan to boost the American economy with 800 billion $, but at least succeded to overcome Europe's divisions for the first time on Economic governance, opening new horizons.

- The French President stressed even harder the unique role of an active EU Council's chairmanship, when he moved swiftly and efficiently, at the beginning of August, to succesfully stop War between Russia and Georgia, at the last minute, which threatened to bring Europe back to Cold War division.

"We (EU) also wanted to avoid a situation like in Bosnia, in the Past, when EU was absent, so that our American friends took their responsibilitues, and EU only followed", despite the fact that the conflict took place in Europe. Now, it was the EU who took its responsibilities".

A roadmap towards a new PanEuropean Security policy, before which all unilateral moves to place new Missiles (from USA or Russia) would be freezed, was proposed by Sarkozy after a meeting with Russian president Medvedev, at the eve of Washington DC's G-20 Summit.

Ukraine's "European" character was stressed at a Sarkozy - Jushenko Summit, September in Paris, while EU adopted on December an "Eastern policy", in which, "I'm convinced that our (EU's) future is to find with our Neighbours the conditions for Economic Development. Peace and Security, by explaining them that.. they must respect (Human Rights') Values, and adopt behaviors different from the Past", explained Sarkozy in Strasbourg.

Meanwhile, the "Union for the Mediterranean" was created, since July's Summit if 45 Heads of State and Government in Paris, as "an organisation for a permanent Dialogue, that we need", mainly in order to tackle the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, by bringing together, for the 1st time, Israelis and Arabs, where "Europe must be present, in order to avoid a frontal clash".

- "If Europe doesn't take its part for Peace in the Middle-East, nobody else will do that in our place", Sarkozy stressed.
-----------------------
    Meanwhile, other EU Agreements were brokered during the French EU Presidency on Immigration, (fex. common Asylum rules, etc), and Climat- Energy :

    - On Climat-Energy, the 2007 German EU Presidency had fixed a triple 20% aim for 2020 (20% renewable Energies, 20% reduction of CO2 emmission, 20% energy efficience/economies), and the 2008 French EU Presidecny realized that, making the necessary compromises in order to modernize EU's industry, but without throwing some former Central-Eastern European Countries into abrupt Economic break down risking "social explosion".

    - Defence-Security EU policy was mainly postponed for April 2009, since both German chancellor Merkel and French president Sarkozy want to strike a deal with the new American president Obama in Strasbourg's NATO Summit.

    However, with all these 4 unexpected Crisis diverting attention to other urgencies, People wil wonder now, what happened to the famous deal proposed by freshly-elected French President Sarkozy on Turkey's controversial EU bid, back on August 2007, to continue EU - Turkey negotiations, but on the double condition that core chapters, intrinsequally linked with EU Membership, will be excluded, and that a collective Reflexion and Debate on Europe's future would start before the end of 2008.

    It was meant to reply to the crucial question : What kind of Europe do we want in 10 or 20 Years from now : A large Market, or a Political Europe, with a popular identity ? In Sarkozy's thinking, presented in his 2 landmark speeches on Europe in Strasbourg, shortly before and after the 2007 Elections, (on February and July 2007), Turkey's controversial EU bid would be incompatible with the second choice.

    It's true that EU Commision's Chairman, Jose Barroso, (who had notoriously declared, as former Portuguese Prime Minister, that he found "nonsense" the idea that Europe might become equal to the US), had repeatedly tried to avoid that Sarkozy's criticism on Turkey might start winning a larger audience in Europe, preferring a discrete "wismens' committee" work. And that most of the personalities later chosen in order to participate in a Committee on Europe's Future, are too much linked with Socialist parties and/or American policies, to be really critical of USA's notorious wish to impose Turkey to the EU, as Sarkozy had noted himself since March 2007..

     - "It's on EU Council's presidency to take political initiatives. EU Commission has other competences", stressed Sarkozy. The "European Ideal" is to "build Europe with the States, not against them". "Ask Europeans to chose between their countries and Europe won't work. You don't choose between your two parents : We must add them together".

    "France and Germany have an Historic Duty to work together, precisely because of what happened to the Past. We have to work hand by hand. We cannot be separated.It goes beyond me and Mrs Merkel today, Mr Schroeder and Mr. Chirac yesterday. It's not a choice, it's a duty to Europe and to the World".  "We need Germany, as Germany needs Europe". Compromise is inevitable, here as everywhere, and each one made some steps towards eachother's positions.

    But "it's true that Mrs Merkel didn't chose her Socialist partners, while I chose mine", Sarkozy said, in an indirect hint that the Socialist Minister of Finance in Germany might be a cause of minor past disagreements in Economy, which were overcome in recent negotiations.

    "We (France and Germany) have particular duties in Europe", but "in a Europe of 27 Member States, it's not enough for France and Germany to agree between them.

    "I always thought that Great Britain has a special role to play in Europe. ... Now, everybody "saw what it cost payed the UK for having been too exclusively open towards the US (and) Financial services. Europe needs the UK, but also the UK needs Europe" :- "We were able to face the hardest moment of the Financial crisis because the UK clearly chose Europe", stressed Sarkozy, reminding Gordon Brown's exceptional participation to the Historic 1st Heads of State/Government Summit of EuroZone, October 12 in Paris (See EuroFora's Reportage from Elysee Palace then).

     - "Some look at Europe with old glasses aged 30 years ago. While we must look at her in relation to what it will be in 30 years" in the Future, Sarkozy concluded.

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 ?
