Soldi alla Clinton dal Ministero dell’ambiente

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 12 novembre 2016

ministero-ambienteMalan aveva già presentato una interrogazione al ministro dell’Ambiente e della tutela del territorio e del mare Gian Luca Galletti, facendo notare che «The Italian Ministry For The Environment, Land, & Sea» compare tra i “donors” sul sito della Fondazione con accanto l’indicazione che si tratta di un contributo governativo, destinato alle attività della Clinton Global Initiative. La cifra donata è tra i 101 mila e il 250 mila dollari.Così il senatore di Forza Italia, Lucio Malan, si è rivolto al presidente del Senato Pietro Grasso in chiusura dei lavori di Palazzo Madama, prima della pausa estiva, il 4 agosto. Ad oggi, tuttavia, ancora nessuna risposta. Tale assenza di risposte lascia ancora più sconcertati dal fatto che questi soldi appartengono al popolo italiano, e nessuno sapeva di ciò. Il Codacons chiede chiarimenti al Ministero dell’Ambiente e, più specificatamente, al Ministro On. Galletti, affinché chiarisca la situazione.

Hillary Clinton: Thank you

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 10 novembre 2016

hillary clintonLast night, I congratulated Donald Trump and offered to work with him on behalf of our country. I hope that he will be a successful president for all Americans.This is not the outcome we wanted or we worked so hard for, and I’m sorry we did not win this election for the values we share and the vision we hold for our country. But I feel pride and gratitude for this wonderful campaign that we built together — this vast, diverse, creative, unruly, energized campaign. You represent the best of America, and being your candidate has been one of the greatest honors of my life.I know how disappointed you feel, because I feel it too. And so do tens of millions of Americans who invested their hopes and dreams in this effort. This is painful, and it will be for a long time. But I want you to remember this: Our campaign was never about one person or even one election. It was about the country we love — and about building an America that’s hopeful, inclusive, and big-hearted.We have seen that our nation is more deeply divided than we thought. But I still believe in America — and I always will. And if you do, too, then we must accept this result — and then look to the future. Donald Trump is going to be our president. We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead. Our constitutional democracy enshrines the peaceful transfer of power, and we don’t just respect that, we cherish it. It also enshrines other things — the rule of law, the principle that we’re all equal in rights and dignity, and the freedom of worship and expression. We respect and cherish these things too — and we must defend them.
And let me add: Our constitutional democracy demands our participation, not just every four years, but all the time. So let’s do all we can to keep advancing the causes and values we all hold dear: making our economy work for everyone, not just those at the top; protecting our country and protecting our planet; and breaking down all the barriers that hold anyone back from achieving their dreams.
We’ve spent a year and a half bringing together millions of people from every corner of our country to say with one voice that we believe that the American Dream is big enough for everyone — for people of all races and religions, for men and women, for immigrants, for LGBT people, and people with disabilities. Our responsibility as citizens is to keep doing our part to build that better, stronger, fairer America we seek. And I know you will.
I count my blessings every day that I am an American. And I still believe, as deeply as I ever have, that if we stand together and work together, with respect for our differences, strength in our convictions, and love for this nation — our best days are still ahead of us.
You know I believe we are stronger together and will go forward together. And you should never be sorry that you fought for that. Scripture tells us: “Let us not grow weary in doing good, for in due season, we shall reap, if we do not lose heart.”My friends, let us have faith in each other. Let us not grow weary. Let us not lose heart. For there are more seasons to come and there is more work to do.
I am incredibly honored and grateful to have had this chance to represent all of you in this consequential election. May God bless you and God bless the United States of America. (Hillary – abstract)

Elezioni USA: clamorosa vittoria dei Repubblicani e di Trump

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 9 novembre 2016

hillary-clintonDopo Brexit, ecco Donald Trump. Ma non solo, i repubblicani trionfano al Congresso e anche in caso di pareggio tra i grandi elettori, la strada verso la Casa Bianca è ormai spianata per il miliardario newyorchese. Sgomento tra i media liberal e i mercati finanziari di tutto il mondo.La corsa per la Casa Bianca è in dirittura d’arrivo e a vedere il traguardo, contro le previsioni della vigilia, è Donald Trump. Il tycoon ha mantenuto la posizione nelle roccaforti repubblicane, ha vinto il confronto con Hillary Clinton negli swing state – in particolare in Ohio e Florida – ed è persino riuscito a fare propri alcuni Stati che i pronostici assegnavano senza troppi dubbi ai democratici. I seggi si sono appena chiusi (alle 7, ora italiana) in Alaska. Ma nel resto degli Stati lo spoglio è ormai avviato a conclusione. E il quadro che emerge dai risultati è impietoso per Hillary Clinton e il suo staff: dopo otto anni di presidenza Obama, il nuovo inquilino di 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue tornerà ad essere un membro del Great Old Party, seppure decisamente fuori dagli schemi e arrivato al successo nonostante l’ostracismo di una parte del suo stesso partito, si legge su “il Corriere della Sera“. Anche il voto popolare, ovvero il consenso complessivo raccolto su scala nazionale al di là dell’assegnazione dei grandi elettori su base maggioritaria e territoriale, conferma lo stato di grazia di «The Donald»: l’alfiere dei conservatori ha messo insieme il 48,3% delle preferenze, contro il 47,2% della sua contendente.

Hillary vs Trump: il colpo finale al sogno americano

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 9 novembre 2016

hillary-trumpBy Beppe Grillo. La crisi del mondo occidentale nella peggiore delle rappresentazioni possibili. Crisi non significa più opportunità, ma soltanto paura, così stiamo diventando anche noi? Potrebbe essere di no se riusciremo a mantenere la democrazia in Italia. Fra tutti i modi possibili di interpretare la crisi del mondo occidentale questo è il più angosciante e sconcertante.Gli italiani, da tempo immemore, sono persuasi del fatto che gli USA siano sempre avanti, avanti in tutto. Con Hillary e Trump si conferma questo dogma: sempre avanti, oltre, così avanti che siamo ancora nell’ombra della statua della libertà. Oggi però, se alzo gli occhi è diventata nera, cupa e triste. La bandiera stelle e strisce, negli ultimi anni, si è trasformata lentamente nell’immaginario di molti di noi, oggi rappresenta solo irragionevolezza e crude espressioni di paura nella “home of the brave”.Come da noi?
No, in Italia l’alternativa all’asservimento ed al ridicolo cinismo ha la forma del M5S il cui tessuto è la partecipazione reale ed il sogno: cambiare per noi non significa lasciar cadere nel vuoto gli esseri umani. Per noi cambiare vuol dire rinforzare la democrazia ed il welfare: nessuno dev’essere lasciato indietro.Una versione horror del Titanic: i rappresentanti del privilegio, dei ricchi e dei potenti, sono aggrappate fra loro istericamente, mentre si lasciano andare ad espressioni di odio, paura e insensatezza. Non è una scelta ma soltanto un museo delle cere che si sono trasformate in walking dead. Questo triste spettacolo e’ la conferma del declino del mondo occidentale.Hillary e Trump sono entrambi poco credibili, entrambi molto temibili per ciò che rappresentano e non per il potere che hanno. Il potere di un presidente negli USA e di fare danni all’estero. Sul versante interno basta guardare Obama: non ha cambiato nulla. La terra delle opportunità si è trasformata gradualmente in un paese con oltre 2 milioni e mezzo di carcerati, milioni di poveri e illusioni sempre più scollate dalla realtà: spero che questa rissa elettorale non sia l’atto finale.Se uccidi la classe media in America non resta nulla, soltanto caos.L’inesistenza del concetto di opposizione in America può portare a brutti sogni e realtà ancora peggiori. In Italia, se non fosse per noi, sarebbe lo stesso. È vero che gli americani sono avanti a noi: Berlusconi doppiato in un colpo solo.

U.S.A.: What happened at tonight’s debate

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 10 ottobre 2016

tammyBefore tonight’s presidential debate, I spent the afternoon at a campaign event with President Obama. He’s supporting me for the seat he once held in the U.S. Senate because, as he said, “Tammy Duckworth knows that the best way to strengthen the middle class is by building an economy that works not just for a few — but for all of us.” We have a critical choice in this election between protecting and expanding on the progress we’ve made over the past 8 years — or advancing an agenda that leaves millions of Americans on their own.
On Friday, we learned horrifying news about Donald Trump’s treatment of women. But we’ve known long before this week that Trump and his fellow Republicans are the wrong choice to move our nation forward.
Tonight’s debate is a reminder that it’s more important than ever for Democrats to take back control of the U.S. Senate, both to build a firewall to stop Donald Trump and to make sure we have a majority that will look out for working families. The New York Times says Illinois is our best chance in the country to flip a Republican seat.

Hillary Clinton writes

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 3 ottobre 2016

hillary-clintonWhen we launched this campaign 17 months ago, I knew how difficult the road would be. But no matter how tough things have gotten, you’ve stood by my side.We’ve dealt with a lot of hatred and divisiveness. But like my friend Michelle Obama says, when they go low, we go high. In the face of bigotry and anger, you’ve stayed committed to our promise to fill this world with more love and kindness.America is great because Americans are good. Think of the proud moments we’ve shared in the past 17 months: couples embracing outside the Supreme Court after winning the right to get married, new citizens raising their hands at their swearing-in ceremonies, little girls on their fathers’ shoulders waving to me at rallies, telling me that when they grow up, they’re going to run for president.We’re still working toward that more perfect union our founders imagined, that civil rights heroes bled and died for, that our brave veterans protected, and that you have said you want to fight for by being a part of this campaign.In some states, we’re already taking that fight to the ballot box. Two days ago, I was lucky enough to visit an early voting location in Iowa to watch a very special supporter cast her vote: her name is Ruline, and she is 103 years old. When I met her last February, she told me that though she was born well before women won the right to vote, she was really looking forward to electing our first woman president. I promised I’d do my best not to let her down. In the final five weeks of this campaign, I’m going to fight my heart out for the values that define our country and humanity, for our families and our future. (photo: hillary clinton)

Hillary malata: quella verità nascosta dalla stampa

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 14 settembre 2016

hillary(Fonte il blog delle stelle) di Marcello Foa.Hillary è malata! Uno scoop, ma non per tutti. Negli Stati Uniti i blog e i siti di informazione alternativi hanno proposto un’informazione migliore rispetto alla stampa mainstream. Questa mattina il Washington Post ha scritto che la “salute di Hillary Clinton diventa un tema della campagna”. Peccato che in realtà lo sia da almeno un mese per chi non si accontenta dei grandi media ma legge Drudge Report, che ne parla da tempo, Infowars, Breitbart News, Zero Hedge, the Daily Caller, siti scomodi, siti ignorati dalla grande stampa che ha difatti imposto la sordina a qualunque indiscrezione. La Cnn è andata oltre, riuscendo persino a cancellare uno show di un medico il Dr. Drew, reo di aver sollevato dubbi scientifici sullo stato di salute della candidata democratica.Parliamo di fine agosto, non di un anno fa. Solo ora, di fronte all’evidenza di immagini drammatiche, i grandi network sono costretti ad ammettere che il problema è reale. E’ solo polmonite? Può darsi ma c’è da dubitarne.
Hillary viene seguita passo dopo passo da un omone nero che impugna una siringa automatica di Diazepam, un farmaco contro spasmi muscolari e attacchi d’ansia. Il suo stato di salute sarebbe tale da non permetterle di reggere lo stress e per questa ragione fino ad oggi non ha indetto nemmeno una conferenza stampa. Fa solo comizi; il che è molto strano per un candidato. Otto mesi senza confrontarsi con i giornalisti!Soffre da tempo di attacchi di tosse insistenti e incontrollabili che durano fino a 4 minuti e che riesce a placare solo dopo aver ingerito una misteriosa “caramella”. Non si tratta di normali abbassamenti di voce, ma di attacchi compulsivi di natura inspiegata. E passati sotto silenzio dalla grande stampa.Eppure il problema è serio, come potete verificare voi stessi: qui trovate l’elenco delle crisi di tosse con i relativi filmati. Comunque guardate qui l’ultimo, il 5 settembre:
La stessa grande stampa che ha sorvolato sull’inchiesta di una fonte insospettabile come AP, che ha dimostrato una strana coincidenza tra gli incontri al Dipartimento di Stato e le donazioni alla Fondazione Clinton. Più della metà dei visitatori privati che hanno incontrato Hillary quando era ministro degli Esteri ha donato fondi alla onominima associazione familiare; per la precisione 85 persone su 154. E non si trattava di cifre simboliche: quegli 85 benefattori hanno versato alla Clinton Foundation la bellezza di 156 milioni di dollari.Ora il tappo è saltato e Hillary sarà costretta – o perlomeno si spera – a rivelare il suo stato di salute: è vero che risente ancora dei postumi dell’ictus subito nel 2013? Che soffre di gravi malattie neurologiche? Di debolezza cronica?Insomma, è abbastanza in salute per reggere le tensioni di una presidenza? I dubbi sono numerosi e ora legittimi.Ma in realtà lo erano anche prima dello svenimento alle celebrazioni dell’11 settembre. Il silenzio unanime delle grandi testate – dalla Abc al New York Times – non basta più per celare notizie sgradite, perché una parte consistente del pubblico americano si informa seguendo canali informali, non si limita più alla voce della stampa mainstream di cui diffida sempre di più.Preferisce la stampa alternativa, preferisce i siti animati da un manipolo di giornalisti che hanno il coraggio delle idee e che hanno imparato ad usare Internet per documentare i propri scoop, dimostrando di essere più efficienti, più sul pezzo di redazioni faraoniche pluripremiate. Perché sono davvero liberi, davvero coraggiosi, talvolta faziosi ma non condizionabili. E sempre più seguiti.Questa sì è una rivoluzione.

What Hillary Clinton Should Say about Islam and the “War on Terror”

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 21 agosto 2016

hillary clintonToday, I want to talk about one of the most important and divisive issues of our time—the link between the religion of Islam and terrorism. I want you to know how I view it and how I will think about it as President. I also want you to understand the difference between how I approach this topic and how my opponent in this presidential race does. The underlying issue—and really the most important issue of this or any time—is human cooperation. What prevents it, and what makes it possible? In November, you will be electing a president, not an emperor of the world. The job of the president of the United States, even with all the power at her or his disposal, is to get people, both at home and abroad, to cooperate to solve a wide range of complex problems. Your job is to pick the person who seems most capable of doing that.In the past, I’ve said that groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda have nothing to do with Islam. And President Obama has said the same. This way of speaking has been guided by the belief that if we said anything that could be spun as confirming the narrative of groups like ISIS—suggesting that the West is hostile to the religion of Islam, if only to its most radical strands—we would drive more Muslims into the arms of the jihadists and the theocrats, preventing the very cooperation we need to win a war of ideas against radical Islam. I now see this situation differently. I now believe that we have been selling most Muslims short. And I think we are all paying an unacceptable price for not speaking clearly about the link between specific religious ideas and the sectarian hatred that is dividing the Muslim world. All of us, Muslim and non-Muslim alike, must oppose the specific ideas within the Islamic tradition that inspire groups like ISIS and the so-called “lone-wolf” attacks we’ve now seen in dozens of countries, as well as the social attitudes that are at odds with our fundamental values—values like human rights, and women’s rights, and gay rights, and freedom of speech. These values are non-negotiable. But I want to be very clear about something: Bigotry against Muslims, or any other group of people, is unacceptable. It is contrary to the values that have made our society a beacon of freedom and tolerance for the rest of the world. It is also totally counterproductive from a security point of view. However, talking about the consequences of ideas is not bigotry. Muslims are people—and most of the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims simply want to live in peace like the rest of us. Islam, however, is a set of ideas. And all ideas are fit to be discussed and criticized in the 21st century.Every religious community must interpret its scripture and adjust its traditions to conform to the modern world. Western Christians used to murder people they believed were witches. They did this for centuries. It’s hard to exaggerate the depths of moral and intellectual confusion this history represents. But it is also true that we have largely outgrown such confusion in the West. The texts themselves haven’t changed. The Bible still suggests that witchcraft is real. It isn’t. And we now know that a belief in witches was the product of ancient ignorance and fear. Criticizing a belief in witchcraft, and noticing its connection to specific atrocities—atrocities that are still committed hillaryby certain groups of Christians in Africa—isn’t a form of bigotry against Christians. It’s the only basis for moral and political progress. One thing is undeniable: Islam today is in desperate need of reform. We live in a world where little girls are shot in the head or have acid thrown in their faces for the crime of learning to read. We live in a world where a mere rumor that a book has been defaced can start riots in a dozen countries. We live in a world in which people reliably get murdered over cartoons, and blog posts, and beauty pageants—even the mere naming of a teddy bear. I’m now convinced that we have to talk about this with less hesitancy and more candor than we’ve shown in the past. Muslims everywhere who love freedom must honestly grapple with the challenges that a politicized strand of their religion poses to free societies. And we must support them in doing so. Otherwise, our silence will only further empower bigots and xenophobes. That is dangerous. We are already seeing the rise of the far right in Europe. And we are witnessing the coalescence of everything that’s still wrong with America in the candidacy of Donald Trump. Now, it is true that this politicized strain of Islam is a source of much of the world’s chaos and intolerance at this moment. But it is also true that no one suffers more from this chaos and intolerance than Muslims themselves. Most victims of terrorism are Muslim; the women who are forced to wear burkhas or are murdered in so-called “honor killings” are Muslim; the men who are thrown from rooftops for being born gay are Muslim. Most of the people the world over who can’t even dream of speaking or writing freely are Muslim. And modern, reform-minded Muslims, most of all, want to uproot the causes of this needless misery and conflict.
In response to terrorist atrocities of the sort that we witnessed in Paris, Nice, and Orlando, we need to honestly acknowledge that we are fighting not generic terrorism but a global jihadist insurgency. The first line of defense against this evil is and always will be members of the Muslim community who refuse to put up with it. We need to empower them in every way we can. Only cooperation between Muslims and non-Muslims can solve these problems. If you are concerned about terrorism, if you are concerned about homeland security, if you are concerned about not fighting unnecessary wars and winning necessary ones, if you are concerned about human rights globally, in November you must elect a president who can get people in a hundred countries to cooperate to solve an extraordinarily difficult and polarizing problem—the spread of Islamic extremism. This is not a job that a president can do on Twitter. I want to say a few words on the topics of immigration and the resettlement of refugees: The idea of keeping all Muslims out of the United States, which my opponent has been proposing for months, is both impractical and unwise. It’s one of those simple ideas—like building a wall and deporting 11 million undocumented workers—that doesn’t survive even a moment’s scrutiny. More important, if you think about this purely from the point of view of American security, you realize that we want Muslims in our society who are committed to our values. Muslims like Captain Humayun Khan, who died protecting his fellow American soldiers from a suicide bomber in Iraq. Or his father, Khizr Khan, who spoke so eloquently in defense of American values at the Democratic National Convention. Muslims who share our values are, and always will be, the best defense against Islamists and jihadists who do not. That’s one reason why the United States is faring so much better than Europe is. We have done a much better job of integrating our Muslim community and honoring its religious life. Muslims in America are disproportionately productive and prosperous members of our society. They love this country—with good reason. Very few of them have any sympathy for the ideology of our enemies. We want secular, enlightened, liberal Muslims in America. They are as much a part of the fabric of this society as anyone else. And given the challenges we now face, they are an indispensable part. Despite the counsel of fear you hear from my opponent, security isn’t our only concern. We also have an obligation to maintain our way of life and our core values, even in the face of threats. One of our values is to help people in need. And few people on earth are in greater need at this moment than those who are fleeing the cauldron of violence in Iraq and Syria—where, through no fault of their own, they have had to watch their societies be destroyed by sectarian hatred. Women and girls by the tens of thousands have been raped, in a systematic campaign of sexual violence and slavery. Parents have seen their children crucified. The suffering of these people is unimaginable, and we should help them—whether they are Yazidi, or Christian, or Muslim. But here is my pledge to you: No one will be brought into this country without proper screening. No one will be brought in who seems unlikely to embrace the values of freedom and tolerance that we hold dear. Is any screening process perfect? Of course not. But I can tell you that the only way to actually win the war on terror will be to empower the people who most need our help in the Muslim world. The irony is that my opponent in this race, who imagines that he is talking tough about terrorism and ISIS and Islam, has done nothing but voice inflammatory and incoherent ideas that, if uttered by a U.S. president, would immediately make the world a more dangerous place. Being “politically incorrect” isn’t the same as being right, or informed, or even sane. It isn’t a substitute for actually caring about other people or about the consequences of one’s actions in the world. It isn’t a policy. And it isn’t a strategy for winning the war against jihadism, or a war of ideas against radical Islam…

When people ask me why I’m supporting Hillary Clinton for president, I tell them the answer is one simple word: Trust

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 2 agosto 2016

hillary clintonDonald TrumpI’ve known Hillary for 22 years. I trust she can do the job of President of the United States. And after serving in the Senate with Tim Kaine, I trust he can do the job of Vice President, too.You need a president who you can trust to get the job done. It’s one of the toughest jobs in the world. You have to elect someone who is willing to put in the work every day, and has the knowledge and experience to do the job.That’s Hillary, no doubt in my mind. I’m with her, 100 percent. And today I’m asking you to help me help Hillary.Hillary needs our support, and so do all the Democrats who are running to have her back. Can you chip in today to help them out? Let’s compare resumes, shall we?
Hillary Clinton:
9 years, First Lady of Arkansas
8 years, First Lady of the United States
8 years, U.S. Senator
4 years, U.S. Secretary of State
Donald Trump:
At least 15 failed businesses
Owns casinos that have filed for bankruptcy no less than 4 times
0 years in public service
Now, if you were looking at those numbers, who would you hire? Who would you trust? Donald Trump is a confidence man. That’s what he’s doing right now — trying to sell his bullying personality to the American people. But underneath, there is no evidence that he can do the job of president. The choice has to be Hillary, hands-down. But just because she’s right for the job doesn’t mean she’s going to get it. She needs all of us to do our part.

Hillary has chosen Senator Tim Kaine to join her on the Democratic ticket

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 25 luglio 2016

hillaryNothing can really prepare you for this job. You come to learn that it’s about having a firm grasp of the issues, sound judgment, and the tenacity never to stop fighting to make people’s lives better. The thing about Hillary is, she already understands all that. She does her homework, she masters the issues, and she never gives up. She gets the job done. And more than almost anyone I’ve worked with in Washington, Hillary’s the kind of person who sees a problem and says, “How can I fix this? What can I do to help?”
But this job is also about surrounding yourself with the best possible people. And there’s no more important decision you’ll make as a presidential candidate than choosing a vice president. There are basically two paths you can take. You can pick someone for purely political reasons — or you can pick someone who will be your partner in government. Someone who shares your values. Someone who will make you a better president.That’s why I picked Joe Biden — and it’s a testament to Hillary’s character and integrity that she chose a man like Tim Kaine.Like Hillary, Tim is an optimist. But like Hillary, he is also a progressive fighter. He’s the son of a teacher and an iron worker who’s always got working families on his mind. He spent nearly two decades and specialized in representing people who had been denied fair access to housing just because of what they looked like, or because they had a disability. And when a gunman killed 32 people on the campus of Virginia Tech, Tim knew he had a responsibility as governor to offer more than thoughts and prayers to the community he mourned with — and as a gun owner, he stood up to the gun lobby on their behalf.There aren’t a lot of elected officials in Washington whom people like even more when the cameras are off than when the cameras are on. But Tim is that kind of guy. He’s a man who’s risen to the highest levels of government but still lives in the same neighborhood he did as a city councilmember in Richmond. You just can’t find anyone with a bad thing to say about him, from the staff who’ve worked for him to the Republicans who’ve served alongside him.Simply put: Tim is a good man. He’s a true progressive. And he will make a great vice president. (Barack Obama)

Hillary incontra Jerzy Buzek

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 15 ottobre 2010

Bruxelles. Il segretario di stato degli USA, Hillary Clinton, ha avuto uno scambio di opinioni col Presidente del Parlamento europeo, Jerzy Buzek, e i leader dei gruppi politici al Parlamento europeo a Bruxelles. Dopo la riunione, il Presidente Buzek ha dichiarato: “Sono stato lieto di accogliere il segretario Clinton al PE oggi, per la discutere su una vasta gamma di questioni internazionali. Dall’entrata in vigore del Trattato di Lisbona – che ha reso il PE partner di co-parità col Consiglio dei ministri nei processi legislativi e di bilancio – l’amministrazione statunitense ha subito capito l’importanza di coinvolgere attivamente il Parlamento. Accogliamo positivamente il loro approccio positivo e visite come questa ne sono l’esempio. Il Segretario di Stato Signora Clinton si è detta molto entusiasta del nostro lavoro comune per costruire legami più stretti tra il PE e l’Amministrazione e il Congresso a Washington. Abbiamo tutti espresso il nostro impegno nel rendere il nuovo sistema di diplomazia europea un successo. Abbiamo discusso sul ruolo e sulle potenzialità di un nuovo Servizio europeo per l’azione esterna. Proprio come è nell’interesse dell’Europa poter parlare con una voce sola sulla scena internazionale, così come in quello dell’America avere un forte partner transatlantico coerente e solidale. Concordiamo, inoltre, sulla necessità di affrontare insieme le sfide chiave come l’ambiente e il cambiamento climatico; la sicurezza energetica, il terrorismo, la criminalità organizzata e la ricerca di una soluzione pacifica per il Medio Oriente. Il Segretario di Stato USA ha espresso forte apprezzamento per il ruolo di guida attiva dell’UE in diversi settori. Abbiamo parlato in modo approfondito dei Balcani e del partenariato orientale e la Russia. Abbiamo una visione comune del ruolo vitale che l’UE può svolgere per contribuire a stabilizzare la situazione dei balcanici occidentali – dove il Segretario Clinton ha appena concluso un’importante visita – dando loro una prospettiva europea realistica. Bisogna coinvolgere pienamente la Russia nei problemi comuni, pur insistendo sul rispetto della libertà, dei diritti e della democrazia. Ci auguriamo di poter continuare ad approfondire il dialogo con i nostri partner americani, mentre cerchiamo soluzioni insieme alle tante sfide – e anzi opportunità – che affrontiamo nell’incerta situazione attuale.”
