*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- New US President Don Trump's International Policy, apparently, looks much more keen than his predecessor, Barack Hussein Obama, to Fight against growing risks of Dual BioTechnology Abuse Worldwide, where UNO's outlets at nearby Geneva, (but even CoE's "Pharmacopeia" in Strasbourg), could play a potentialy key role :


F.ex., New State Secretary Rex Tillerson's Press Spokesperson, Heather Nauert, has just pointed at a "Non-Proliferation Millestones" note for 2017, which places at least at the Same Level of Crucial Importance as Nuclear Weapons' non-proliferation attempts around Korea, also the "Global Health Security Agenda", and a "New WorkPlan for the (UN) Biological Weapons' Convention (1972BWC), rather optimistically calling them equally "Success Stories" :


 - In fact, even if an elementary "Health Security Agenda" had started from 2014, i.e. during Obama's term, nevertheless, still Today, "Yet there is much work to be done to prevent, detect, and respond to Infectious Disease outbreaks, whether Naturally occurring, Accidental, or Deliberate", warns an official USA Sate Department's Note of December 2017.


- It also points "Against the Use of Disease as a Weapon", according to UNO's "Biological Weapons Convention (BWC)", with "a New, More Ambitious Workplan for the Next 4 Years,  leading to the next Review Conference not later than 2021", in order to overcome the Failure of Obama's 2016 attempt, and advance well beyond that, (in close Cooperation, mainly between Russia, the US, UK, India, etc).


 - "As the Life Sciences rapidly evolve, it is Vital that the International Community cooperate to Prevent the acquisition or use of Biological Weapons by Anyone", USA State Department's note stresses.


 + A UNO Experts' Preparatory Workshop at nearby Geneva, has just "underlined", in this regard, "a Shared Concern about the Dual Potential of Biology", and "the Non-State Actor terrorist Risk".


----------


++ Meanwhile, in USA's 2018 Budget, even if several other Health-related Funds are reportedly Reduced or remain Stable, nevertheless, Pandemics, Public Health Emergency and/or Defense Measures against Bio-Threats are Augmented + 3%.


+++ Topically, that move comes as International Criminal Court Convention (ICCC) Parties have recently Added use of Biological Weapons among War Crimes.


++++ And President Trump's "National Security Strategy", just published recently, includes, reportedly, a "Bio-Threats" section concerning not only Natural Outbreaks of Epidemics, but also Bio-Terrorism, and even Advancements in Life Sciences that have a Potential to be Mis-Used.


The New US Administration, indeed, reportedly Focuses on Defense against Both Global and Domestic Bio-Threats, extending to a ProActive Policy preventing also the MisUse/Abuse of Advancing BioTechnolgy.


----------------------------

 

Last, but not least : By the way, New US President Don Trump's 1st Year in office (2017) has Not yet faced Any so Serious Massive and Life-Threatening Infectious Disease Outbreak at the International level, as those Horrible strange neo/mutated "Virus" Mass Epidemics which had Astonishingly Started to Threaten Hundreds of Millions of People's Health and even Lives, already from Obama's 1st Year on office, i.e. from Early 2009, (initially from somewhere accross San Fransisco's borders to Mexico, etc), up to 2014-2015's "Ebola" crisis, etc...


Just Before that, from his 1st notable Measure, on Mars 2009, Obama had Smashed his predecessor, G.W.Bush's August 2001 Decision to Stop Federal Funds' Expenditure for controversial and dangerous Genetic Manipulations of Human Embryos, provoking loud satisfaction from some Big Bio-Tech. Companies, particularly in California.


But withOut any known Result on vainly promised Medical Breakthroughs agains Cancer, Diabetes, Cardio-Vascualar Diseases, and other such Large and Dangerous Diseases, which, on the contrareeey, persist and/or reportedly even spead, scandalously, Worldwide, despite many Hundreds of Millions $ notoriously paid by "Big. Pharma" Corporations to Obama's Electoral Campains from 2008, and much More Spend by US Federal (and Other State Actors, Worlwide) Funds for Gene-Tech. and other related Bio-Technologies, (including also Immune System and Virus research, etc), where, curiously, Human Health-Protecting Science and Technology seems, on the Contrary, to have Stagnated as Never Before, since Pasteur's Times...

sarko_looks_up_applauded_after_making_the_t_point

    EU Rapporteur on Enlargment Strategy, maistream German MEP Elmar Brok, speaking to "EuroFora", welcomed the proposal made earlier this week by French President Nicolas Sarkozy for the EU to"start Now Talks with Turkey to create a common Economic and Security area", instead of full Accession, at a period when Ankara looks more and more unfit and/or unwilling to respect EU conditions.

    - "For Europe to have strong Political will, it must stop dilutiing itself in an endless Enlargement. It must have borders...Diversities enrich, on the condition that they don't undermine European Cohesion, and don't weaken EU Unity", Sarkozy stressed.
    
    - "Countries like Turkey share a part of common destiny with Europe, with which they have a vocation to build a Privileged Relation, to be closely associated, but not to become Member of the EU"  : "Noone respects his friends by telling them lies. Noone respects his friends by making them promises that will be never kept", he added.

    That's why "we'd better start, from now, negotiating with Turkey to create a common Economic and Security area", Sarkozy proposed.

Significantly, the French President was repeatedly and largely applauded by EU citizens, 3 times, when he made the Turkey point, (strategically placed between Europe's "Political Will" and its cultural heritage, historically open to mutually enriching dialogue with all the World, but never diluted).

    - "We could propose such a great ambition also to Russia, which must not be percieved as an Adversary of Europe, but as a Partner. Thus, we'd create a wide area, of more than 800 Million inhabitants, sharing the same Security, the same Prosperity", he concluded.

    Sarkozy's move was anounced at the eve of a Franco-German Top meeting with Chancellor Angie Merkel in Berlin on Sunday, to jointly launch the EU Elections campain, after an EU Summit at nearby Prague, to launch a new kind of relations, called "Eastern Partnership", with neighboring countries such as Urkaine, Belarus, Moldova, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaidjan, etc, (to which Russia, reportedly, is not - and does not want to be - included).

    As for Ukraine, which has already expressed her wish to join the EU in future, "Kiev will have a special place, and a very important role to play", replied earlier this week in Strasbourg, to an "EuroFora" question EU Chairman in office , Czech vice-Prime Minister Alexander Vodra.

    - "This direction is more Realistic for Turkey than Accession negotiations", reacted immediately EU Parliament's Rapporteur for Enlargment Strategy, mainstream German MEP Elmar Brok, commenting Sarkozy's idea for "EuroFora"

     Particularly "as far as it concerns the respect of EU Rules by both sides", he added, hinting at Turkey's now obvious inability and/or unwillingness to abide with EU Acquis, EU Commitments (fex. on Cyprus, etc), and European Democracy/Human Rights rules. (Comp. infra).

    Brok added that, in his view, a similar proposal might be made also to Ukraine and other neighbouring Countries, regardless if they have, or not, a "European vocation". This would not necessarily mean that there couldn't be any accession prospects at all." for all the countries that might be included in this area, according to Brok.  But it's preferable, particularly for Turkey, "because it's a more Realistic approach than full Membership".

    On this point, Sarkozy's proposal, (which he'll share with German Chancellor Merkel), seems more crystal-clear.

    - "Turkey does not fullfil EU Criteria, and will never fullfil EU Criteria" on Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law. "Some have been lying to Ankara, but we must tell the Truth, and have honest and close relations with her", said meanwhile to "EuroFora" on the same issue also the President of EU Parliament's largest Group of MEPs (ChristianDemocrats/EPP), Joseph Daul.

"Hot" Debate at EU Parliament reveals CHANGE of mood towards "Suspension" of EU - Tukey talks.
------------------------------
    Earlier this week, many MEPs, and even some of those who were previously in favor of Turkey's controversial EU bid, strongly criticized the persistance and even aggravation of serious Human Rights violations in the country, that ECHR continues to "unanimously" condemn ":

      - "After winning a big victory in the latest Local Elections, the pro-Kurdish party DTP almost doubled its Elected Mayors from 52 to 98", but afterwards "more than 400 politicians were thrown to Prison and prosecuted" by the Turkish Authorities, denounced on behalf of the ChristianDemocrat/EPP Group, Belgian MEP Frieda Brepoels.

     At the same time, "more than 1.500 Children are closed in Turkish Prisons", she added. "What will the EU Commission do" against these facts ?

- "Turkey appears to be at greater Distance away from Copenhagen Criteria after 4 Years of accession Negotiations, than when they started !", denounced on behalf of the Liberal Group, German MEP Alexander Lambsdorf.    

"On the central issue of Press Freedom, Critical Journalists face obstacles for their accreditation, others are prosecuted, condemned, fined and/or jailed, Media blocked or closed", he denounced.   

 - "EU Made 2 grave Mistakes with Turkey : To start accession negotiations, and to continue them", despite everything, criticized Dutch MEP Bastian Belder, on behalf of the Ind/Dem group.
