*Strasbourg/CoE/Angelo Marcopolo/- Well Conscious of the current Need to protect Europe's Unity, but also of the Importance of Human Rights, appeared the current President-in-office of the CoE, during the Period of 11/2017 - 5/2018, twice Prime Minister of Denmark, Lars Lokke Rasmussen, in a Balanced Reply that he gave to an "Eurofora"'s Question, during an improptu Press-point at the CoE, just after his Speech and Public Debate with MEPs, at Strasbourg's PanEuropean Parliamentary Assembly's plenary session for the Winter 2018 :

- "Eurofora", who reminded the Fact that we had also covered the Previous Danish Chairmanship of the CoE, a Long Time ago, (Comp. then, Statements that gave us the Danish Foreign Minister, punlished at "TCWeekly"), had asked Rasmussen if he believed that he would manage to Safeguard Europe's Unity, during his Presidency, particularly as far as it concerns the well known current Controversies  around Poland and Hungary, but also Russia, etc.

  - "Yes, I think we should do our Outmost to Ensure the Unity of Europe" nowadays, the PanEuropean CoE's President-in-office, Positively Answered a relevant "Eurofora"s Question.  

- "Hopefully", this should concern not only "Visegrad" Countries, such as, f.ex., Poland, Hungary, etc., but also "Russia", observed Prime Minister Rasmussen, who will Chair the CoE also during an Important, forthcoming Top Level Meeting of CoE Assembly's "Ad Hoc" Committee, with the participation of 2 Russian Representatives, next March 2018, in Paris, (See : ..., etc).

+ "But, in doing so, as you know, we (CoE) Need also to Emphasize that Decisions taken at European level should be fulfilled at National Level, and that all (CoE's) Member States should Live up to the Standards of the European Convention on Human Rights", he added, as a matter of Principle.

+ In this regard, during his Speech at CoE's Plenary, Earlier Today in Strasbourg, Prime Minister Rasmussen had critically observed that, recently, "there is a Significant Challenge of Inadequate National Implementation" of ECHR's Judgements, "in particular in relation to Serious, Systematic and Structural Human Rights Problems in some States". (i.e. a Record notoriously kept, usually, by Turkey, while also concerning, at Various Levels, mutatis-mutandis, more or less, several Other among the PanEuropean CoE's 47 Member Countries).

Yesterday, the Danish Foreign Minister Anders Samuelsen, had, smiling, Warned the CoE, that, on May 2018, the Danish Presidency was preparing to Host a PanEuropean CoE Committee of Ministers' session at the very "Castle of Hamlet", where Shakespeare had reportedly attributed his World-Famous "Existential" Question : - "To Be, or Not to be"....


I.e. something that the Recent CoE's (and/or EU's) upheavals have notoriously brought recently at a High Level of Intensity, (Coimp., f.ex., also : ..., etc).

Brixen-Bressanone/ACM/3.8.08

An appeal to make the "World more Human", by defending basic Human Values, helping those in need, and paying hommage to Nature, figured high in Pope Benedict's long-awaited speech at his "First Angelus" in the symbolic, beautiful historic small town of Brixen/Bressalone at the Alpes.

- "No Dictature, nor any destructive force can rob us of the most important goods wich are God's gift", stressed Pope Benedict, referring to elementary Human Values, in a last-minute improvisation of his draft speech, before launching also a call to "help those in need", in order to "make the World more human".

- "Jesus is the focus .. In him is Justice and Freedom", said earlier Brixen's Bishop Wilhelm Egger, after prayers including calls to "Truth, Justice and Freedom", read at a Mass of thousands in the town of Archangel Michael, known as defender of christians against the devil.

In what looks as a reference to BioEthics' dillemas of crucial impportance, raised at Strasbourg's unique in the World legally binding International Treaty on BioMedicine and Human Rights (1998, with the "hottest" issues added later through additional protocols, some of whom are imminent), he spoke also of the splendid "Nature" at this Alpen's ressort : This fits well Vatican's earlier anouncement that Pope Benedict's "prayer intentions for August" are mainly to "respect God's design for the world", and "become ever more aware of the great gift of God which Creation represents for us".

- "The most important things in our lives cannot be bought, but are only given as holy gifts : The Sun and its Light, the Air that we breath, the Water, the beauty of Earth, Love, Friendship, Life itself", Pope Benedict added, extending also to Natural Environment, another topical issue after recent Climatic upheavals at several parts of the World.

The "preparation of Pope Benedict's visit to France", which currently heads the EU, at mid-September, among exceptionaly important Council of Europe meetings on Human Rights in Paris and Strasbourg, is part of his work, together with his "book on Jesus", during brief Summer Holidays in Brixen, said his Spokesman, Federico Lombardi.

- The Pope's message is mainly religious, theological. But we are living in a concrete world, and ideas may be taken by readers as references to the actuality. However, it's better to wait to se what the Pope will say in Paris and at Lourdes, added to EuroFora Lombardi, who is also Director of Vatican's Press Office.

Brizen/Bressanone is similar to Strasbourg by succeeding to make a fertile synthesis of Germanic and Latin sources of Europe, like the two local rivers who meet at the historical center of the town, among spectacular ressorts at mountains' hights.

Headquarters for an Historic Religious Seminar, it attracted recently also a Free University's Educational studies. Well-known as a long-time preferred rest place for former cardinal Radzinger and his brother Georg, it includes areas named "St Benedeto" and "St George"...

But Pope Benedict's first speech gave also another symbolic rendez-vous :

- "Next Wednesday, August 6, we shall commemorate the 30st anniversary from the death of late Pope Paul VI", who "concluded Vatican II", and "the Transfiguration of Jesus, mystery of the divine light, which exerced a unique fascination to his soul", he said to some 12.000 applauding People, among the happy few who succeeded to have a rare place for an open-air Mass inside the Domplatz a particularly sunny day at the Alpes.
