judeu do FMI quis Turquia e Magreb na UE
Jew Dominique Strauss-Kahn:
«DSK - I fully understand all the arguments from those who fear the entry of Turkey in Europe. But I feel it makes no sense to look only at the past or at geography. What you have to keep in mind is the projection that we have of what Europe will be in thirty, forty or fifty years. When you wonder about this, you can very well see that in the world there will be a great American empire in the North with Canada, the United States and perhaps Mexico. There will probably be a great Chinese empire, and considering the pace at which China is developing today, in thirty or forty years it will have reached the standard of living that we have. And there will be a great Indian empire. Will there be a great European empire? We all hope so because we must carry on the European values. What I am certain about is that if there is a great European empire, at that time, it must not stop at the borders that are ours today. Imagine a teacher, in forty years, with pupils in front of him, and a big map in the middle, with a red pen he will say, there, that is the great American empire and he'll make a big circle, then he'll say, that is the great Chinese empire and he'll make a big circle, if he wants to be able… if we want him to be able to say, that is the great European empire, then he will have to make a big circle and there won't be a pen fine enough to pass through the straits of Gibraltar or in the Bosphorus. What I'm trying to say is that in forty or fifty years, if Europe exists, and I think everybody here wants it to… then we will have to have reconstituted the Europe of the Mediterranean. That is the root of our civilization.
Arlette Chabot - So we must not close our doors to Turkey if it changes.
DSK - Turkey still has a way to go to meet the criteria for admission. But the future of Europe, for me, is indeed the Europe of the Mediterranean.
François Bayrou - Hence, the Maghreb too...
DSK - Hence, Morocco no doubt, and other countries…
François Bayrou - Hence, the Maghreb too…
DSK - Absolutely. Absolutely. You will not be able to resist…
François Bayrou - How far do we go?
DSK - I'm going to tell you. I think that from the icebergs in the Arctic to the sands of the Sahara, there is a space which is that of European and Mediterranean responsibility. And you will not resist demographic pressures, you will not resist what we want to construct together, by placing barriers, as Monsieur Le Pen was saying a while ago, or was it Monsieur Villiers, I don't remember, Monsieur Villiers is usually more articulate… it's that we will not resist if we are not capable of assuming our historic responsibility.»
«François Bayrou - Turkey is not our history and you know it.
DSK - Of course it is.
François Bayrou - How can you maintain before the cameras that Turkey is our history? I have much respect for the Turks, but the least one can say is that it is not our history. You have only to ask Constantinople.»
