*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- [NDLR: In a text Send to "Eurofora"+ by German Paneuropean Union's Head, Experienced former Long-Time MEP, Bernd Posselt, he mainly Urges EU's Conference on Europe's Future, whose 1st Plenary kick-Starts Tomorrow in Strasbourg, to Avoid "Mock Debates" in order to Focus on the Core Issues concerning the State of Europe. In this regard the Biden - Putin meeting at nearby Geneva, also on European Issues, in the Absence of any EU Representative, speaks by itself...  [See Infra].

We willingly Publish almost All his Original Text, (with Only 1 Word Edited), since "Eurofora" Agrees with Most of it. However, we Also Sincerely Believe that a Real and Full eventual Mobilisation of the Bulk of European People, (for the 1st Time in History, Possible, thanks to Modern TeleCommunications), if Rightfuly Developed, Could Stimulate Europe's Future as required by the World Nowadays. +In Addition, "Eurofora" Believes that National Democratic States are a proper European Characteristic, (f.ex. pratically Non-Existent in Africa, whose Bprders are Different, Neither in Asia, where Turkish, Indian, or Chinese "Empires" Dominate), and must he Preserved, as part of the European Democracy, bringing Closer to the People. Nevertheless, naturally, this does  Not Exclude at all an Eventual Federation of Europe ! On the sole condition that Small/Medium Member States might Defend their Vital National Security and/or Social Values' matters, at least in a (Court-controled) Proportional way, while leaving all Other Aspects to a possible Federal European State].

"Posselt: Becoming a (Federal) State, instead of Mock-Debate

Criticism of the EU Conference on the Future of Europe / Honouring Jean-Claude Juncker

47th Paneuropean Days of the Paneuropean Union Germany

18. 06. 2021

Trier. At the beginning of the 47th Paneuropean Days of the Paneuropean Union Germany (today) in Trier, its president, the CSU European politician Bernd Posselt, criticized the EU Conference on the Future of Europe, which was constituted at the same time in Strasbourg: "It must be about the State of the EU in the 21st century and not about ... Mock debates Past the Core of European problems.

He referred to the meeting between Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin in Geneva: "It was about the fate of Europe, but the Europeans did not sit at the table."The blueprint for the further development of the EU is actually obvious:" We need a Strengthening of the European Parliament, an EU Commission Elected by it, which sees itself as a real European Government, the abolition of the Unanimity principle in Foreign policy, and a European Defence union.“

The Paneuropean Days are the Annual main event of the German branch of the Oldest European unification movement founded in 1922.

At tomorrow's rally, the patron of the Congress, former European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, visited by guests from different European countries, will be awarded the special Paneuropean Merit Medal. According to Posselt, the non-partisan Paneuropean Union will focus on three topics at the festive opening tonight and at the main rally on Saturday morning: the reconstruction of cross - border living and cultural spaces after the damage caused by the corona-related border closures, the establishment of a democratic and sovereign European federation and the role of Europe as a defender and beacon of human rights in the world.


From Trier, the oldest city in Germany, the participants will travel by bus to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, where Cardinal Jean-Claude Hollerich, as President of the EU Bishops 'Conference, will celebrate a mass together with the President of the Bishops' Conference of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Franjo Komarica, in the famous pilgrimage town of Echternach. On Sunday, the Paneuropean Days, which are under the motto "Shaping Europe, not just managing it", end with a Protestant service, which Father Werner Sonn holds, as well as the annual Federal Delegate Assembly of the Paneuropean Union Germany.

    - "Europe must be liberated from this undermining "wooden talk" of a "unique thought" which hampers democratic debates", stressed incoming EU Chairman, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, speaking to Journalists after his official meeting with EU Commission's President, Jose Barroso, at Elysee Palace in Paris

    - "It's precisely because there are not enough Debates, that EU hasn't managed yet to make it clear to European citizens what is really at stake", he added, in an obvious reference to the latest Irish "No" in 2008, after a long series of similar, unprecedented events, from the 1st Majority Abstention to EU Parliament's Elections in 1999, repeated in 2004, to the Dutch and French "No" in 2005, etc.

          In fact, "there is no time to lose for Europe, and that's why we decided to start the French EU Presidency right away, from the first day", he explained, on France's exceptional choice to schedule the usual meeting with EU Commission from the 1st day of the 1st month, instead of the 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th or even 10th or 11th, as it had been done by others in the Past..    


    - "This is not an easy period, but we shall act with determination, while also listening to Citizens' views", he promised.

    Sarkozy's move came shortly before his opening Speech, next week in EU Parliament in Strasbourg, for the first Public Debate on the Priorities of the French EU Presidency (July - December 2008), and that's one of the reasons for which he significantly opened his EU Council's Chairmanship by welcoming at Elysee palace EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert Poettering at first..

    The incoming EU Chairman was replying to Press Questions about rumours that controversial British EU Commissioner on Trade, Mandelson, was alone to drop an invitation to have a working Diner at Elysee palace, together with all other EU Commissioners and the French Government, only because he would have been upset for some critical points made earlier by President Sarkozy in defense of European Agriculture vis-a-vis its Foreign competitors.

    But, as smiling Sarkozy played down Mandelson's reported refusal to debate, saying that he had to visit Marseille for a Ministerial meeting on Trade the next morning, and that "all our British friends are always welcome to taste a nice diner" in France, perhaps at another occasion..

    - "It's urgent to win anew the trust of the People" : Lately, "the European ideal lost its momentum. Since several years, whenever Citizens are questioned on Europe, they react with reserves : They even have .. a tendency to reply "NO".. After this 3rd "No" of a People in some years, there is an Urgency to convince", added French Prime Minister Francois Fillon, after a meeting earlier the same day of all Ministers with EU Commissioners, followed by an interview with Barroso

    "According to recent Polls, only 30% of French people believe that the European construction is a source of hope. It's only a poll, but we all now quite well, that, since 2005, it's dangerous to neglect these alarming signals, as it would be dangerous to treat with contempt the Irish "No", Fillon warned.

    "We all have a common duty to prove to the European Citizens who have doubts, that EU is more useful, more necessary, than ever" : And "that EU can take decisions needed in order to respond to European or Global challenges", the Prime Minister concluded.

    - "We believe, together with President Sarkozy, that EU should open debates on all issues of direct, concrete interest to Citizens", confirmed later to EuroFora the Head of France's governing party (UMP), Patrick Devedjan, after his speech to the European People's party (EPP) Study Days in Paris (2 - 4 July 2008).

    He didn't deny that one of them is Turkey : - "Public Opinion in France is very much unfavorable to Turkey's EU bid, and President Sarkozy has said that several times", he told EuroFora.

    From European Central Bank's controversial policies on Euro's value, to EU Enlargement Strategy, etc., issues of obvious importance to EU Citizens will be plenty, next week in EU Parliament in Strasbourg, before President Sarkozy launches the debates on EU 2008 French chairmanship's priorities on Thursday.
