*Strasbourg/CoE/Angelo Marcopolo/- Opening an important Session of CoE's Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of Europe (CLRAE: 18-20 October 2017), which is due to Debate also a Controversial Move for Catalonia's Quest of Autonomy, the PanEuropean body's President, Gudrun Mosler-Thörnström, from Austria, made things Clear from the Start :


- "Devolution (of powers) is essential", and "Municipal and Regional Self-Govenment, is Indispensable, within the Limits of each State's legally established Territorial Borders", she confirmed, as CLRAE's Top Representative.


+ "But", at the same time, "It's, certainly, Out of Question to see Our Nation-States Implode !", she sharply Warned, as a Top Official of the CoE.


 - In fact, "in a Europe of Values", "there is No room for Selfishness, be it National or Regional", Mosler-Thörnstrom Warned, (while several Mainstream Medias, f.ex. from the USA, etc., have recently Speculated that a main Motivation for Pro-Independence Catalan partis, would be, not so much Culture, History or Education, nor Democratic Liberties as such, but much More an alleged Reluctance to Financially Contribute into National Solidarity Mecanisms Helping Poorer Regions in Spain).

 

 CoE's Local/Regional Autonomy Watchdog's President was, in fact, reacting in Strasbourg, in tune with EU Commission's President,Jean-Claude Juncker's famous relevant Statement, Earlier in Brussels, that EU would Not Interfere inside Spain's Internal Affairs for a so-called "Mediation" to that Different with its Catalonian Region, simply Because, if a Europe with 28 Member States is, already, quite Difficult to Govern, then, a Europe with ...98 States, certainly, would be Too Hard !

 


Meanwhile, CLRAE has scheduled just for a Public Debate, Tomorrow Evening, Thursday, 19 October 2017, on "the Situation in Catalonia, in Spain", at its Chamber of Regions.


But withOut any Draft Resolution, as also EU Parliament did, Last Week in Strasbourg, (Comp., f.ex.: ....).

        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.
