*Brussels/EU-Summit/Angelo Marcopolo/- The New Chancellor of Austria, and Next EU Chairman-in-office for the period of July-December 2018, Sebastian Kurz, Leader of the ChristianDemocrat/EPP Party ÖVP, speaking to "Eurofora" at the conclusion of EU Heads of State/Government's Summit of March 2018 in Brussels, and shortly after Turkey droped, with contempt, crystal-clear Calls recently by EU Parliament and even now by the European Council, about Stopping Military Attacks in Syria's Kurdish canton of Afrin, Armed Provocations against Greece in the Aegean Sea, and, particularly, Bullying by Turkish GunBoats Hindering European Ships to Explore EU Member Cyprus' Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) for Natural Energy Resources, as Gas etc, (notoriously needed by EU Industry, Electricity and/or Transports Nowadays, particularly since Older Findings at the Northern Sea are Declining), sharply Observed that, rebus sic standibus, in fact, the Main Question Today is Not so much IF EU should React, but, rather, with "Which Measures", it should do so....


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

 - "Eurofora" observed the Fact that Turkey just Droped Both EU Parliament's latest Resolution in Strasbourg, and EU Heads of State/Governments latest Conclusions in Brussels, which had slamed, particularly, Ankara's GunBoats Bullying against Peaceful Research and/or Exploitation of EU Member Cyprus' Natural Energy Resources inside it's Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), but also Dangerous Army Provocations at the Aegean Sea, as well as the Bloody Military Invasion/Occupation of Syria's Kurdish Canton Afrin, (etc).              

=> Don't you think that some Concrete Measures should be Taken, in order to Convince Ankara to respect EU's Decisions ?", we asked.


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

- "My Position on Turkey is very Clear and Strong", (indeed, may be the strongest in the EU), spontaneously reacted the News Austrian Chancellor to "Eurofora"s above-mentioned Question.


-  In consequence, - "You don't need to Convince me !", Sebastien Kurz stressed from the outset, particularly as far as Turkey's controversial and unpopular EU bid is concerned.


=> So that, the real Question, Nowadays, is, not so much "IF", but, instead : - "Which Concrete Measures ?...", the Next EU Chairman-in-office (from July 2018) pointed out, sharply Returning the main Question back to "Eurofora"...


- Genuinely Surprized, initially we simply reacted by observing that "there are Many Kind of possible Measures, such as Symbolic ones, and/or Financial, Political, or even Others", in such a case, and modestly adding that such Decisions are not for journalists but for Political Leaders to take :- Points on which he agreed, thoughtfull... 


+ Subsequently, Kurz did Not Deny a General European Interest to ensure Security of Energy Supplies, by Protecting EU Countries' Freedom to Explore and have Direct Access to probable Oil/Gas Energy Natural Resources eventually located at EU Member Cyprus' EEZ, instead of abandoning all that to the mercy of Turkey's Violent Bullying against European Ships (starting from Italian ENI's), as "Eurofora" had suggested.

Indeed, inter alia, it's also a Fact that, f.ex., the First ever joint EU Defence Policy operation, has been organized - and Still Works, already since 2008 - for the Protection of Ship Navigation from Piracy Attacks around the Sea-Coasts of Somalia, leading to the Suez Channel, notoriously Strategic mainly for Oil/Gas Energy Transports, (which cross EU Member Country Cyprus' EEZ a their subsequent route towards Europe's core, Afterwards in the Mediterranean)...

>>> + Meanwhile, New Ambassador/Permanent Representative of Austria to the CoE, former Long-Time CFSP Senior Official in Austria's Foreign Policy at Vienna, Dr. Gerhard Jandl, Replying to a Similar "Eurofora"s Question, earlier at EU Parliament in Strasbourg, highlighted the Next Austrian EU Presidency's Will to Boost also "Defence Policy aspects for the Security of EU's Energy Supplies", as he characteristically said regarding Turkey's GunBoats Bullying (Comp. Supra).


By a Timely Coincidence, it's during the Period of the forthcoming Austrian EU Presidency (July - December 2018) that the Next Oil/Gas Exploration at EU Member Cyprus' EEZ has been Scheduled at the Block Number 10, by American Giant Company EXXON-MOBIL, (while a Return of Italian ENI's Drilling Ship at the Block Number 3 has not been excluded at all by the Company, which has already Declared its intention to Continue its Succesful Oil/Gas Explorations there, particularly after the Strong Official Conclusions of this EU Heads of State/Government Summit in Brussels).

Last, but not least, New Austrian Ambassador/Permanent Representative to the CoE, Dr. Gerhard Jandl's ahove-mentioned Speech on EU's Security-Defence Policy at the eve of the forthcoming Austrian EU Presidency (July-December 2018), made at the Invitation of New MEP Lukas Mandl, Chairman of "PanEuropa" Working Group in EU Parliament, came shortly after an Exceptional PESCO Event on the sidelines of December 2017 EU Summit, which even included several Maritime Surveillance and Other Sea-related Security/Defence Projects, including UnderSeas, etc. (See "Eurofora" NewsReport from the spot, at : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/euhistoricdefenceevent.html ).

     The High-Tech, brand new Crisis' management Center (CMC) inaugurated Wednesday by French Minister Bernard Kouchner, fits well EU's Humanitarian and Security-Defence aims, revealed a gathering of the largest Group of MEPs (EPP) organised in Paris these days, to prepare the debate on French EU Presidency's priorities (July - December 2008), that President Nicolas Sarkozy will present next week in EU Parliament in Strasbourg.

        Due to face a large spectrum of Crises : from Humanitarian (f.ex. Natural Catastrophes, evacuation of Civilians or rapatriation of expats, populations exposed to Hunger and/or risky Sanitary conditions, etc), to various consequencies of Terrorist threats, Armed conflicts, or of Peace-keeping operations, etc, and joining Geopolitics with Diplomacy, CMC is able to deal with urgencies in real time anywhere in the world, by concentrating qualified Experts and impressive High-Tech equipment (i.e. Giant Computer Screens working in parallel, Visio-conferences, Satellite connections, etc).

        Kouchner stressed that "Humanitarian and Political considerations can co-exist in real practice, if each one respects its independence", and, speaking to EuroFora, underlined his intention to have special representatives in "Strategic" locations, creating a "Network", open particularly to European cooperation.

        - "We must fill the gap in Europe's Civilian and Military capacities", declared earlier at Matignon, French Prime Minister Francois Fillon, while EU Commissioners met with their counterparts among French Ministers.

        This point was at the focus of European People Party's "'Study Days" in Paris, from 2 to 4 July 2008, entitled  : "For a Safer Europe", with a central Debate on EU's Security and Defence policies, where EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert Poettering, French Minister of Defence Herve Morin, and the Chairman of EU's Defence Committee, MEP Karl von Vogaw, spoke before meeting with Sarkozy, Wednesday afternoon.

    - "We need specifically European systems, including, f.ex. Satellite networks, etc", stressed the experienced Chairman Karl von Vogaw, speaking after the meeting with President Sarkozy to European Journalists from EuroNews, EuroPolitique and EuroFora.
    - And there where "European forces are already gathered, (f.ex. in Cyprus, Balkans, Lebanon, etc), if new operations started, I'd prefer to see them under European command in Future", he added, in reply to questions on how to overcome problems raised by a 3rd Countries as Turkey.

    Vogaw presented earlier, at EPP's plenary, a comprehensive Report on EU's Security and Defence policy, with a strong High-Tech component (including Satellites, UAV, protected Telecoms, Strategic Air and Sea Transports, Space assets, etc), sharp references to Political will and Historic necessities, while also stressing that EU must overcome the divide between Civilian and Military research and activities, making "a close cooperation between Civilian and Military means" a "specific" mark of Europe.

    The experienced Top MEP, after helping to build the "EuroZone", as a long-time Chairman of EU Parliament's Economic Committee, has recently started to chair a brand new "Security and Defence Committee", aiming to build European Defence, as the 2nd task of his life, as he told earlier to EuroFora.

     The Committee, chaired by Vogaw, will hear, next week in Strasbourg an Experts' view about on the French EU Chairmanship's priorities in ESDP on Wednesday, before President Sarkozy's plenary debate, exceptionally on Thursday.
