Visit of Tony Blair, Official Envoy of the Quartet on the Middle East, to José Manuel Barroso: extracts from the press conference

99 views

In the margins of his intervention in the EU Foreign Ministers meeting on 22 July 2008 in Brussels, Tony Blair, Official Envoy of the Quartet on the Middle East, met with José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, for bilateral talks on the Middle East peace process but also on the environment and the EU's fight against climate change. Both underlined the importance of reaching an agreement at the end of 2009 in Copenhagen and for the European Union to go on with its commitment and its leadership on this issue. José Manuel Barroso said it would be very bad for its credibility if the EU, that took the lead in this very important file for the future of the planet, was giving some signal of stepping back now that others are changing and announcing more ambitious commitments. Tony Blair added that if they did not take the steps now that would allow them to reach agreement in 2009 then they were in for an uncertain and possibly dangerous and unstable time for the environment in the future.
