Believe it or not, I am also #French. Proud of #EU2022FR. Too many debats about the presence of 🇪🇺 at #ArcDeTriomphe. Something valid in "noblesse oblige" To annoy Ms #LePen, I illustrate my thread below with a #photo taken during my visit of the largest heros cemetery in #EU 1/1 Image
Nobless oblige! #EU2022FR Almost 400 events relating to #France’s presidency will take place across the next six months...political meetings, cultural programmes and citizens’ events. Thematic summits will also be organised in various #French cities. 1/2
#EU presidency will be an opportunity for #France to “boost its influence in #Europe”. #EU2022FR 1/3

We all ♥️ #Paris where were it took place 1st presentation of incoming French Presidency to @EESC_PRESS! #PFUE2022 @CBeaune underlined this rare & precious opportunity, highlighting France's ambition to mark progress on #EU legislation, #climate #digitalisation #socialpolicy 1/1
The red thread of #PFUE2022 would be "Recovery, Power, Belonging" (“Relance, puissance, appartenance”). France would not impose an agenda, but would serve as an accelerator for the way forward on ideas and dossiers. #EU #Europe 1/2
#Recovery”- in economic terms, after the Covid pandemic; "#Power" - in terms of #security, external relations, #defence, #migratory policy, climate; and "#Belonging" - feeling of being part of the common #European political project. 1/3

PM #Draghi is also to meet trade unions as they mobilize for possible strikes amid claims the budget proposal doesn't go far enough to combat inequalities 1/2
The Democratic Party has proposed formal talks between party leaders to ensure cross-party agreement over the main points of the budget and avoid interference with the upcoming presidential election 1/3

Excellent question @AlemannouEU! EU/#EEAS has a limited body of intelligence to support a political decision. @eu_eeas Remember @vonderleyen clarified the issue after her visit to @POTUS stating: it is not a migration issue, it is a hybrid attack. 1/1 Image
That leads to me the conclusion: @eu_eeas has limited capacity of assessing the situation, incorporating different types of information/assessment. That could change the information/options presented to decision makers. Quid implication of @Europarl_EN? @SanninoEU @JosepBorrellF
Only by asking the right questions we can make progress! @eu_eeas needs to get stronger, to get stronger, it needs to get #intelligence from #EU Member States; @Europarl_EN should be carefully involved; trust is a matter of experience, respect, and coordination! @SanninoEU End

Fantastic news! Starting from the presumption I do not know nothing as tweeted by @RickRubin!
1. Good if @EU_Commission will provide enlightening and interactive information session. It will alleviate the asymmetry of information & knowhow knowledge btw EU States/people 1/1
2. According to #EU Structural Funds Programs, it will be good if national administrations will explain these policies rather than to sit in their office, providing local guidance. These practices were promoted by France and Nordics with the aim of absorbing funds. Same here. 1/2
3. It will be good if national administrations will be able to set up basis for bilateral #twinning between #EU Member States. These can be supervised from Brussels under a shared responsibility and according to Financial Regulations. It worked before. 1/3

An interesting article indeed. I was once political director at a Ministry of Foreign Affairs (I resigned since my 3 y old child was in Brussels, and could not commute btw 2 capitals). Here is my view, maybe a different approach: 1. #Diplomacy is about relations among states!1/1
2. I do not think that government is the diplomat’s principal occupation. A diplomat shall go beyond states and governments and for this, he/she needs extensive expertise. 1/2
3. It takes decades to acquire, and after that...it is a battlefield… because of inertia or democratic variations. Crafting diplomatic relationship is a very difficult task challenging task, it is about civilizational and strategic convergence. 1/3 End
