*Strasbourg/CoE/Angelo Marcopolo/- As USA started to react, the same CoE Rapporteur who had succesfully launched the 1st Call to Save assieged Kobane City from ISIS' Deadly Islamist Terrorists cowardly Targetting even innocent Civilians, back on 2014 (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/coeforimmediateinternationalhelptosyriankurds.html, etc), Experienced former Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyanni, who has just become, this week in Strasbourg, the PanEuropean CoE Assembly's New Rapporteur on Syria, reportedly urged to Stop Hostilities, after Turkey's, much Criticized, Military Invasion in Syria's Kurdish Region at Afrin, and to Protect Civilian People.

- Declaring to be "Extremely Worried, about the Situation in Afrin", (the Syrian Kurdish Region attacked by Turkey's Military and its Proxy Armed Gangs), COE's Rapporteur on Syria urged for "No Further Escalation of Hostilities" started by Ankara's Military Invasion a few Days ago, and Stressed that "it's Important to ... Protect Civilians", as well as to have an "Humanitarian Access" to that Region, according to an Official Publication made Today (Friday) by PACE's Political Affairs Committee, and Re-Published by CoE's General Communication Service.


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


+ Meanwhile, Germany reportedly moved to Raise the Issue also inside NATO, (where Turkey's position has notoriously become more and more Controversial, particularly after buying Russian Anti-Air Missile System "S400", Blocking Western Politician's Access sometimes to Incirlik AirBase, sometimes to their own Troops manning "PATRIOT" Anti-Missile Systems lended to Turkey, Spying and/or Bullying NATO Member States on alleged Dissidents living in Europe, and now Attacking the International Coalition's Best local Allies against ISIL's Islamist Terrorists, etc).

 

 Earlier this week, French President Macron, "expressed ... his Concern, following the Turkish Military Intervention launched on Saturday in Afrin's area", said an Official Press Comuniqué published by Elysée Palace in Paris. In particular, Macron reminded the Need to ":


 - "Fight, as a matter of Priority, against ISIS, and All the Jihadist Forces present",


- "Ensure, for Civilian Populations the indispensable Humanitarian conditions"


- "Facilitate the on the spot conditions for a Sustainable Political Solution"
.
 

---------------------
- USA has also Denounced the Fact that Turkey's Military Invasion of Syria's Kurdish Region obviously risks to "Distract" attention from the recent Focus on totally Defeating ISIL's Deadly Islamist Terrorists :

- "“The Violence in Afrin Disrupts what was a relatively Stable Area in Syria, and Distracts from the International effort to Defeat ISIS", U.S. Defense Secretary, Jim Mattis, denounced.


- Therefore, Mattis "Urge(d) Turkey to exercice Restraint", Both "in the Miitary Action", "and" on the provocative "Rhetoric", (which, according to an "AP"'s "FactCheck", contains several UnTrue claims, which are Grossly Fake : F.ex. that "ISIS" would exist at Afrin's area, that Syrian Kurds would have "Attacked" Turkey : Both False, and so on)...


=> So that New US President Don Trump has just "expressed Concern about Destructive and False Rhetoric coming from Turkey", as an Official "White House" Press Readout revealed.


- US President Trump also "relayed (to Turkey's Erdogan) Concerns that Escalating Violence in Afrin, Syria, Risks UnderCutting our ... Goals in Syria : "All parties" "Must Focus ... on .. . Achieving the Lasting Defeat of ISIS" instead, the White House pointed out.


>>>That's why, the American President "Urged Turkey to DeEscalate, LImit its Military Actions, and Avoid Civilian Casualties", as well as "Increases to Displaced persons and Refugees".


Significantly, the "White House" listed what U.S. considers as "Terrorism" in that area, citting "ISIS, Al-Quaida, PKK and Iranian-sponsored Terrorism", but clearly Ommitting even to mention here, the Syrian Kurds of YPG, (who have Never Attacked Turkey until now, as an "AP FactCheck" reminded in parallel).


+ Moreover, Don Trump also "Urged Turkey to exercice Caution, and to Avoid any actions that might Risk Conflict between Turkish and American Forces" (sic !) in Syria's Kurdish region, (particularly after Erdogan threatened to Extend Turkey's Military Invasion even to adjacent areas, where U.S.A. Defense Officers are present)...


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


+ Mainstream North American NewsAgency "Bloomberg" has just published a Strong Criticism of the current Risk to "Betray" USA's recently proven "Best Allies" in that Strategic area, i.e. the Syrian Kurds, with Consequence for the USA to Never Find any Other new Ally, ready to fight efficiently, anywhere else in the World, at the foreseable Future...


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


++ The Syrian Kurds have also, reportedly, launched a call for the Country's National Government in Damas, to Join Forces in order to Defend Syria's Territorial Integrity from the Turkish Military Invasion which pushes also some "Proxy" Armed Gangs opposed to Damas.


+++ Earlier this week in Strasbourg, PanEuropean COE's Parliamentary Assembly (PACE)'s Bureau, backed by at least the 4 Biggest Political Groups of MEPs, (the ChristianDemocrats/EPP, the Socialists, the Liberals, and the EuroLeft, etc), openly Supported a series of proposals asking Turkey to "immediately Stop" its Military Intervention, calling for a relevant UN SC Resolution, Measures to Save Civilian Peoples' Lives and care for new Refugees provoked by Ankara's troops invasion, as well as to Seek Peaceful Political Solutions, (See : ....).


=> The Next Meeting of CoE Assembly's Bureau will take place on March 2018 in Paris, immediately Followed by an Important PACE's "Standing Committee" subsequent Session, (which has, in principle, Equal Powers to PACE's Plenary sessions, as that which is scheduled for April 2018 in Strasbourg).


Both Moves will be Preceded by an Earlier Meeting of PACE's Political Affairs Committee, also in Paris, due to be Chaired by its Newly Elected President, the Experienced Dutch MEP Ria Oomen-Ruijten, from the Same ChristianDemocrat/EPP Political Group as PACE's New Rapporteur on Syria, mainstream MEP Dora Bakoyanis, (who, as Rapporteur, can Follow relevant developments and make Urgent Statements on her Mandate, whenever Necessary).

 

 +Meanwhile, the mainly Turkey-controlled "Opposition" in Syria, has just Refused to go to Sochi (Russia) for an Important Meeting on the Peace process in Syria.

Until now, that Meeting had been Interpreted as a Concession by Turkey to Russia, speculating that, in exchange, Moscow might have accepted to Close its Eyes on Ankara's eventual Military Intervention against Syrian Kurds.

But, Today, after that blunt Refusal, Russia has no more reasons for closing its eyee on Turkey's selfish wrongdoings, no more...

After the cowardly Killing of 2 Russian Pilots, stubbed behind the back while Fighting against ISIL's Islamist Terrorism at the Turkish-Syrian Borders near Afrin, (followed even by the Brutal Murder of the Russian Ambassador to Ankara, by a Turkish "Guard"), now it's also the Syrian Kurds, who had Dared Fight a Hard but Succesful  Struggle against ISIL's Deadly Islamist Terrorism, who are Stubbed behind the back by the Turkish Military and its Proxies... 

I.e. the Same who had notoriously profited from several Years of various illegal Trafficks to and from ISIL Terrorists, (f.ex. Jihadists, Arms, Oil/Gas, stolen Cultural Goods, etc), always in Total Impunity !          

  - Could, all this, be just a pure "Coincidence" ?...

(Opinion).

 In Democracy, the forthcoming choices for EU's Top Jobs, as the New EU Parliament's President, new EU Commission's President (+ probably EU Council's President, EU Foreign Minister, etc) should be made according to EU Citizens' Votes in June 7, 2009 European Elections, and main EU Governments' strategic policies.

At the heart of the biggest EU Countries, in France and Germany, EU Citizens clearly voted for a renovated, non-technocratic but Political Europe based on Values, declared explicitly incompatible with Turkey's controversial EU bid.

This main choice was also supported in several other small or medium EU Countries, such as Austria (cf. promise of a Referendum), Spain (cf. EPP program's reservations vis a vis Enlargment), etc., while EPP Parties won also in Poland, Hungary, Cyprus, etc.

In other Countries, whenever Governing coalitions didn't make these choices or eluded them, continuing to let a Turkish lobby push for its entry into the EU, they paid a high price, and risked to damage Europe, by obliging EU Citizens to massively vote for euro-Sceptics whenever they were the only ones to offer a possibility to promise  real change and oppose Turkey's demand to enter into the EU :

It's for this obvious reason that British UKIP (IndDem) succeeded now (after many statements against Turkey's EU bid) to become Great Britain's 2nd Party, unexpectedly growing bigger even than the Governing Labour Party, as well as the Liberal party  ! Facts prove that it's not an isolated phenomenon : A similar development occured in the Netherlands, where Geert Wilders "Party for Freedom" (PVV) became also the 2nd biggest in the country, (after EPP), boosting the chances of a politician who had withdrawn in 2004 from an older party "because he didn't agree with their position on Turkey". And in several other EU Member Countries, even previously small parties which now focused on a struggle against Turkey's controversial demand to enter in the EU, won much more or even doubled the number of their MEPs (fex. Bulgaria, Hungary, Greece, etc).

On the contrary, whenever Socialist and oher parties were explicitly or implicitly for Turkey's controversial EU bid, they obviously lost Citizens' votes and fell down to an unprecedented low.

In consequence, EU Citizens clearly revealed their main political choices, in one way or another : They voted to change for less Bureaucracy, but more Politics and Values in a Europe really open to EU Citizens, but without Turkey's controversial EU bid.

Recent political developments are obviously different from the old political landscape which existed in the Past of 1999-2004, when Socialists based on Turkish 1% vote governed undisputed not only in Germany, but also in the UK, Greece and elsewhere, France followed old policies decided when it had been divided by "cohabitation", before the 3 "NO" to EU  Referenda since May 2005, before Merkel, before Sarkozy, etc.... before the surprises of 7 June 2009 new EU Elections.

If the current candidates to the Top EU jobs promise and guarantee to respect People's democratic choices, OK.

Otherwise, Europe must find new candidates, really motivated and able to implement these democratic choices of the People.

The beginning of crucial, final Decisions are scheduled for the 1st EU Parliament's plenary session in Strasbourg, in the middle of July, and they could be completed towards the October session, when Lisbon Treaty's fate will have been fixed.
