Gipfel-Gastgeber Frankreich: Macron hat seine Wette gewonnen

Sogar die größte Gefahr für das Gelingen dieses Gipfels – US-Präsident Donald Trump und seine ständig scharf geladene Twitter-Kanone – hatte Macron in einem ausgedehnten gemeinsamen Mittagessen nahezu entschärft. Den Handelskrieg mit China will Trump zwar beinhart weiterführen. Aber wer vor dem Gipfel behauptet hätte, dass es in Biarritz große Fortschritte im Atomstreit mit dem Iran geben würde, wie es die Kanzlerin nun am Ende des Gipfels feststellte, der wäre vermutlich für unzurechnungsfähig erklärt worden.

Macron shook up the G7 with his fancy diplomatic footwork

Shortly before Zarif’s arrival Trump denied he’d backed Macron to negotiate with Iran on behalf of the G7, with Trump’s aides saying Zarif’s visit was a „curveball.“

Rule 1 at the G7 Meeting? Don’t Get You-Know-Who Mad

No one can say how the remainder of the meetings will go, or what will happen after he leaves. But everyone seemed determined to avoid the sort of blowup that marred last year’s Group of 7 meeting in Canada, when a stormy Mr. Trump refused to sign the final communiqué and lashed out at the host, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

“Thus far, this has been really a great G-7,” Mr. Trump gushed on Sunday, “and I want to congratulate France and your president because they have really done a great job.”

Die „Option Ruanda“

Auf die Frage, was Präsident Kagame motiviere, Flüchtlinge aus Libyen nach Ruanda zu holen, ist regelmäßig zu hören, er erwarte von der EU finanzielle wie auch politische Gegenleistungen.[14] Tatsächlich wird Ruanda, eine frühere deutsche Kolonie, seit je von Berlin unterstützt – vor allem über das Entwicklungsministerium. Erst in der vergangenen Woche ist Entwicklungsminister Gerd Müller in Kigali gewesen und hat dort bekanntgegeben, Berlin werde Kigali noch mehr als bisher fördern – unter anderem mit einer Ausbildungsinitiative sowie mit Investitionen in Energie und die digitale Infrastruktur.

Die-hard Remainer Philip Hammond’s camp is blamed for leaking Project Fear 2.0 dossier as its predictions of No Deal Brexit chaos on October 31 are dismissed as ’not believable‘ and ’scaremongering‘

Former Tory former cabinet ministers Iain Duncan Smith and Owen Paterson claimed the leak of documents on ‚Operation Yellowhammer‘ was an example of the ‚establishment‘ plot to ’sow fear in people’s minds‘.

In a joint statement, they said: ‚This Operation Yellowhammer leak is the version of what the contingency executive put together. We remember attending a briefing on privy council terms which they said was not worst case but reasonable worst case. Theresa May had asked for this to be done. It was obviously Project Fear dressed up.

Die Weltstellung der EU

Noch ein wenig deutlicher als die Kanzlerin hat den deutsch-europäischen Machtanspruch bereits im vergangenen Jahr der damalige Außenminister Sigmar Gabriel formuliert. Gabriel erklärte einige Wochen nach dem Amtsantritt von US-Präsident Donald Trump, die Vereinigten Staaten könnten „nicht die Führungmacht bleiben“; die EU wiederum dürfe deshalb „eine Partnerschaft auf Augenhöhe“ beanspruchen.[8] Gabriel hat diese Forderung in leicht abgewandelten Formulierungen mehrmals wiederholt.
