« Le monde ne va pas s’arrêter de tourner » : une déclaration d’Européens influents



Le vote du Brexit pose de profondes questions sur l’avenir du projet européen. Toutefois, le monde ne s’arrêtera pas de tourner pendant que l’Europe travaille sur son avenir. Des peuples continueront à vouloir entrer, nos ennemis continueront de comploter, les guerres civiles feront toujours autant de victimes.

Alors même que nous façonnons une réponse à la crise interne de l’Europe, nous devons préserver les capacités de l’Europe à concevoir et mettre en œuvre une politique étrangère efficace et à protéger ses citoyens. En prévision du Conseil européen du 28 juin, nous appelons les dirigeants européens à adopter quelques principes de base pour aller de l’avant :

L’unité est la principale force de l’Europe. En ce moment de forte émotion, il est essentiel d’éviter toute action qui sèmerait la discorde entre les Etats membres. Il y a de multiples options institutionnelles pour forger des réponses européennes communes. Mais il ne peut pas y avoir d’adhésion à deux vitesses, où un groupe déciderait pour les autres. Ce serait le meilleur moyen pour œuvrer au délitement de l’Union européenne.
Forger un partenariat efficace avec la Grande-Bretagne sur la politique étrangère et de sécurité fera toujours partie des intérêts prioritaires des autres Etats européens.
La politique étrangère européenne ne peut pas être séparée des besoins et souhaits des populations européennes. Toute initiative pour forger une coopération entre Etats européens doit prendre en compte leurs préoccupations de manière sérieuse.
