On Europe Day the EU’s ‘group of wise men’ will submit its report on the challenges facing Europe until 2030.
I had the chance to gather some views from some of these men and women, who have worked in secrecy for a year and a half.
A rumour says that when they were entrusted the effort, one condition was demanded by France: that they should not touch upon Turkey.
But it would be a very strange kind of report about Europe in 2030, if it doesn’t say if Turkey is in or out by then. Or why it should, or should not be.
I think that if Felipe Gonzalez wants to go down in history as a great figure of EU integration, he cannot avoid the subject. A great EU figure doesn’t need to bow to a country’s president.Georgi Gotev
