Brussels to tackle Europe's gas crisis.

Note from the spanish newspaper "El Pais".
Free translation by GermanToro Ghio of the article published today, October 6, by the Spanish newspaper "El País" on the natural gas crisis at the European Union (EU) meeting held in Madrid (Spain).
Despite the symbolism of the meeting, the energy crisis has also deeply marked the agenda of the summit on the eve of a winter that is expected to be complicated and in which many leaders fear that it will ignite the flame of discontent that will end up fragmenting not only the unity shown so far, and which has crystallized in Thursday's meeting, but also their position within domestic politics. Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki criticized Germany's injection into its economy to combat rising energy prices, which may be jeopardizing the single market. It rains on wet ground, moreover, according to several annoyed capitals because there is growing evidence that Berlin dictates part of the community energy policy.
And in this duality of the new European constellation, between a union of values and another of interests, Macron, who has already made a mantra of criticism of the Midcat trans-Pyrenean gas pipeline - this time, like others, with biased data, later refuted from Spain by the Minister of Ecological Transition, Teresa Ribera - spoke of the priority of building more electricity connections in Europe and reducing gas prices. "We share the same space, the same history. We are destined to write our future together," she said. "I hope we can get common projects," he launched. Projects such as the "joint toolbox" signed Thursday by Norway and Brussels to tackle Europe's gas crisis.
