Russians denounce anew Oil Smuggling from Syria to Turkey, used to buy Arms for Islamist Terrorists

* Russia's Chief of Staff, General Valery Gerassimov, reportedly denounced anew regular Trucks' convoys smuggling Oil from Eastern Syria to Turkey, that would be used to buy Weapons for Islamist Terrorists, as ISIS etc, according to Press Agencies, including Sputnik, Xinhua, etc.


Turkish Military Airplanes have notoriously shot down more than one Russian Plane helping the Syrian Government against various Armed Islamist Extremists, killing at least 2 Russian Pilots, by hitting them behind the back, while they thought that Ankara was Neutral. And this was followed even by a Cold-Blood Murder of the Russian Ambassador to Turkey, later-on, by an armed Policeman there.


But Erdogan strived to convince Putin, later on, that this was due to political opponents who afterwards staged a failed Coup (allegedly "for Peace") on June 2016, managing to make Moscow even help the Turkish Army to penetrate around the Syrian Region of Idlib, where most Islamist Extremists had gathered recently, after a series of advances by Damascus' Government throughout the Country.


However, Turkey reportedly failed, nowadays, to honor its part of a Deal with Russia on Idlib's future, which implied a progressive Withdrawal and/or Disarmament of Violent Islamist Extremists from at least a first Part of that Region, and the establishment of a Demilitarized Zone, guarded partly by Turkey and partly by Russia.


Instead, a part of them were, reportedly, transported elsewhere, inside Turkey, while such Armed Islamist Extremists re-started to Attack the Syrian Army.


A mainstream Chief Press Editor, Dundar, and his investigative Journalist, had been persecuted, briefly jailed, and afterwards anew "wanted" by the Turkish Authorities, for having reported, previously, on Weapons' deliveries by Turkey to Violent Islamist Groups in Syria, publishing Photos of Truck-smuggled Rockets, etc.


Dundar was given Asylum in Germany, and was awarded several Prizes in France, in Strasbourg and elsewhere, met with Officials in Paris, EU Parliament, etc, until recently.


Turkish President Erdogan, when he was recently questioned by a French Journalist on such Arms' Deliveries to Violent Islamist Groups inside Syria, avoided to reply on that point, and prefered, instead, to denounce US New President Don Trump's reported deliveries of Arms to the Kurdish Minority in Syria, in order to Struggle against ISIS and other such Islamist Terrorists.

Speaking exclusively to "EuroFora", the New EU Parliament's President, former Polish Prime Minister, ChristianDemocrat/EPP MEP Jerzy Busek, welcomed proposals by EuroFora about innovative ways for EU Citizens to attend EU debates before important final decisions which affect people's lives.

- "We (EU Parliament) must be transparent", Buzek stressed from the outset.  "We must have clear answers also for delicate questions. If we don't touch a problem, you must know why, and when shall we decide in the nearest future".. "Because "we (EU) must think about Europeans, first of all : They don't understand well what is going on in the EU. So, it's our duty to inform them, to make discussions here more interesting".

"EuroFora" congratulated President Buzek for the anouncement he made, from the 1st day of his election in Strasbourg (on Tuesday, 14 July 2009), on his intention to make  transparent debates, exchanges of views, etc. before the final adoption of decisions in EU Parliament's Plenary, when issues are evolving inside Committees, (See earlier publication).

And we reminded, in this regard, that "EuroFora" has been advocating a project for EU Citizens' active involvement in pluralist EU debates before important EU decisions, since more than a Decade : 1997-2007+

- "Thank you. We (EU Parliament), indeed, have exciting debates", Buzek replied. But, in practice, "without a possibility for our Citizens to see them, not even by the Press, the Radio or TV, etc., because it is in Committees", he regreted.

- "But, they (i.e. Media, Citizens, etc) might interact with you, with MEPs, etc, May be we can imagine something", "EuroFora" proposed.

- "Yes, (but) it needs, a quite new idea", Buzed observed.

- "Why not through some innovations ?", "EuroFora" suggested.

- "Innovation ? That's it. Fantastic  New Information Technologies !", Buzek realized.

- "Precisely, "EuroFora" has such a project, since more than a Decade (1997-2009), to use new technologies for public debates before major EU decisions are taken", we reminded.

- "If you have such proposals, please come to us, come to us. We must" do something, agreed the new EU Parliamen's President.

    This fits with Buzek's main stance, expressed at EU Parliament's plenary earlier this week in Strasbourg, that the European Union must succeed to overcome a "Crisis of Trust" vis a vis EU Citizens. (See previous EuroFora publication).

    For that purpose, obviously information and debates are valuable, but purely instrumental, procedural means which can help focus on, and highlight a substantial content, attractive to EU Citizens, which needs to be determined by other, political, and not mediatic factors.  

    Buzek spoke about the urgent need to overcome the Global Economic Crisis,  the struggle for Human and Civic Rights, Democracy, etc., the Eastern Partnership, links with Russia, strategic partnership with USA and emerging countries, etc.

    But he also used (while speaking both to "EuroFora" and other Media) the expression : "The Europeans", for EU Citizens. This points right towards what several important EU leaders (including French President Sarkozy, German Chancellor Merkel, etc) have started to highlight particularly during the recent years : That there is a vital need, and an historic opportunity, for the development of a European Conscience, to stimulate e renaissance of a European Identity able to attract Popular support, for the EU to become a strong player in a Multopolar World : In other words, the revitalisation of a project for a "Political Europe".

    By a coincidence, this was indirectly but surely reminded, earlier in Strasbourg, by another ... Busek (this time with a "s") :

    Speaking to more than 650 participants from CoE's member countries, at the conclusion of the 2009 Summer University of its Political Schools, Erhard Busek, (with an "s"), former vice-Chancellor of Austria and EU Coordinator for South-Eastern Europe, pointed at the current need to revitalize Europe's "Identity", forged by Greek philosophy and Roman Law, Christian values and Enlightment's ideas, etc. through the ages.     

- "We have almost the same name with Jerzy Buzek (EU Parliament's new President, who is a former Polish Prime Minister), because both our Families come ...from  the same village, located at the Heart of Europe, which was often shared between Poland, Germany and the Czech Republic. But my family emmigrated a long time ago to Austria, while Jerzy Buzek's family remained in Poland", explained f. vice-Chancellor Erhard Busek to "EuroFora".   

 An astonishingly concrete and simple example of European Integration from the grassroots : Starting by EU Citizens, i.e. those "Europeans", that EU Parliament's new President, Jerzy Buzek (this time with a "z"), wants to bring alongside MEP's decision-making proces, (according to "EuroFora"'s main idea : Comp. supra)...
