Курц е казал повече и по-различни неща от тези, тъй спестено и преакцентирано представени ни от независимите газети:
The motto of our Presidency is 'A Europe that protects', and we want to focus on the various challenges which are mots topical. We want to secure prosperity in Europe, not only within our borders but also beyond. What this means in concrete terms is that we are planning to have three priorities centre stage.
First of all, security and the fight against illegal migration, because protecting the European people has to be our top priority. That is why we need a paradigm shift in our migration policy. We need to focus more on the safeguarding of our external borders as the prerequisite for a common border free Europe.
Secondly, we wish to focus on securing our prosperity. Digitalisation and automation are changing our world, we want to blaze a trail, we want to be pioneers, we want to use the opportunities that presents itself to us, we want Europe to be world leaders.
Only if we are able to secure stability, security and peace in our neighbouring countries will we be able to guarantee security sustainably for the future. And we want to make contribution to that end. We want to secure our Eastern Partnership. We have seen russian aggression we have seen sanctions and we have seen violation of international law and it important therefore to beef up our channels of dialogue and communication.
