The President of the European Commission Ursula von Der Leyen, after her speech at the Western Balkans Summit, held in Slovenia, spoke about the energy crisis. She said the crisis will affect many countries in the world and everyone should be prepared for that. He added that the EU is preparing the conditions to face this crisis.
“There may have been deadlines for certain countries before, but the first steps towards enlargement as a key priority would be to set a deadline. We took such a step a few years ago. We mentioned the European perspective of these countries, we have always mentioned it. Everyone will feel the consequences of the energy crisis. This is a broad debate that we will follow and discuss about this until future summits. In 2008-2009 such a crisis began to be felt, which affects other sectors of the economy. This brought recession to many countries and it is a warning sign. Measures are being prepared in this regard and will be adopted at another time. It is important to remember that rising energy prices are a global phenomenon. Due to the pandemic even last year were lower compared to other years. “Definitely already have its effects,” said Von der Leyen
Von der Leyen has also uncovered a phone call with President Biden. She said that vaccination, trade, protection were discussed. She expressed the need for the EU to be able to respond to new threats.
“We discussed climate change. We have exported over 800 million vaccines to over 100 countries. Above all we have donated vaccines. Sometimes it is good to remember what we are doing. Regarding the US, I had a phone call with President Joe Biden where we reaffirmed our determination to vaccinate worldwide. We are also setting up factories in several countries to produce vaccines. We also discussed trade. I also discussed defense with President Biden. We stressed the confirmation that NATO is the strongest defense alliance. It is important for the EU to be able to act, to strengthen our capacities, our industrial bases from new threats.
