*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).

    EU-educated charming young Chinese presence started to be felt in Council of Europe's corridors in Strasbourg at the aftermath of an Historic Resolution adopted by its Parliamentary Assembly in favor of opening the possibility to give China a special "Status" in the PanEuropean Organization.

    - "My proposal to offer to China an official status as "Observer", in short term, under conditions, was welcomed" by the CoE : "The road to Dialogue between China and the CoE has now been opened", declared after Strasbourg's debates and votes the Head of France's delegation, MEP Jean-Claude Mignon.


    "Neither complacency, nor a mere condamnation of China", but a "wise approach of a political issue of great importance", advised Mignon to all those who'd either overload claims on Democracy, Human Rights or Minorities, or close their eyes to anything, there as elsewhere... A balance which was not exactly followed during debates, contrary to Mignon's personal stance, which appeared rather even-handed.

    China is the only UNO Security Council permanent member which has not yet any status at the CoE, being still obliged to be represented in Strasbourg by a General Consul : USA and Canada, even Japan and .. Mexico, have already got a special Status at the CoE, following Strasbourg's decision, back in 1995, to counter-balance the accession of Russia (1996) by creating special links to traditional "Western-world" allies.


    All former "Socialist" Eastern European countries started to have relations whith the CoE through its former sector on Culture and Education, before becoming full Members of Strasbourg's paneuropean organization. Speculations were unfolding recently about establishing a probable concrete link with China through the topical issue of anti-doping in Sport, on the occasion of the 2008 Olympic games.

    More spectacular, a meeting co-organized a few years ago in Strasbourg, by EuroFora and the International Space University between EU Parliament's long-time Rapporteur for EU's Satellite Navigation system "GALILEO", German MEP Brigitte Langenhagen, and a group of postgraduate students, attracted special interest from Chinese experts, and was followed, in less than a month, by the anouncement of China's intention to support EU's GALILEO project with a participation of 200 million €.

    Compared to that, revendications of .. "Turkish" Minorities, by Turkish MEPs, this week in Strasbourg, spreading through a wide area extended ...from Greece up to China, appeared less worrying, than pittoresque...

    Meanwhile, France's political will to start involving China and other important countries in European and Global affairs was due to be raised also at the forthcoming G-8 Summit in Japan by President Nicolas SARKOZY, (NDLR  : confirmed on July 5)


2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
