*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- New EU Commissioner on JHA, Didier Reynders, experienced former vice-Prime Minister in charge of Foreign Affairs, speaking to "Eurofora" after an important meeting of EU Parliament's LIBE Committee this Evening in Strasbourg, which discussed the 1st Visit to Turkey by the vice-President of EU Commission, Margarites Schinas, as well as the Monitoring of the situation in Hungary and Poland, before to address the "Hot" issue of Web-Journalist Daphne's Murder in Malta, did Not Exclude at all for a Similar Procedure (as vis a vis Hungary and Poland, currently Article 7) to be, eventually, used Also in the case of Malta, particularly if relevant developments become too Nasty, at the present crucial juncture (Comp, f.ex.: ..., etc).

-"We'll see !", Reynders (a Center-Right Politician) Carefully Reserved his Judgement on whether such a Procedure should be Extended also for Malta, if things don't ameliorate concerning the notorious Problems faced, until now, by the Investigation on Web-Journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia's Brutal Murder, where the Instigators still remain UnKnown, while controversial Prime Minister Muscat (a Socialist) still Insists to Stick to his Job, at least until Mid-January 2020, even if his Chief of Staff and a Minister, around him, were Recently Obliged to Resign, and Revelations about links between a Middleman and his own Surroundings have Multiplied, in Addition to Growing Denonciations about astonishing Conflicts of Interest affecting Many among those currently Responsible for the Enquiry.

- In particular, - "We shall see Tomorrow", the Competent EU Commissioner Added, pointing at a landmark EU Parliament's Plenary Debate on Daphne's case, Tuesday Morning, due to be Followed by a MEPs' Vote for a Resolution on Wednesday Noon.

+ Earlier, he had Surprized, by Unexpectedly expressing his Interest to Continue Attending the "LIBE" Committee's Work ToNight, Even After it had Finished the Examination of the cases of Hungary and Poland, for which Reynders had officialy come, Leaving Only Malta to be Discussed Last...

- But, Suddenly, the competent Rapporteur, Dutch Liberal MEP Sophie In't Veld, theatrically cuts the discussion short, Announcing a Demand for her Report on Malta to be ... "Postponed" !

=> - "Marvelous Initiative !", proclames, spontaneously, the Socialist MEP Claude Moraes, Chairman of the LIBE Committee, (attributing his Joy not to Politics, but to the fact that "some have not yet got the Time to Eat" something for Diner, as he pointed out)...

- When "Eurofora" asks Sophie In't Veld Why she apparently ..."Frustrated" even EU Commissioner Reynders, by that, apparently UnExpected Announcement that her Malta Report was due to be "Postponed" for much Later-on, she Replies that he would have "Spoken" with several People about it, so that, Nowadays, it's Only "a Resolution" which will be Debated and Voted during this December 2019 Plenary Session, while, on the Contrary, her "Report on the Mission" of EU Parliament's Delegation to Malta, that it Visited on December 2 to 3, 2019, its Findings and Propositions for Action in the foreseable Future, etc., would, indeed, be "Postponed for Next Year"...

According to EU Parliament's Agenda, the Next "LIBE" Committee's Meeting is no sooner than on January 9, 2020, i.e. practically at the Eve of the Next Plenary Session which Starts on January 13, 2020.

>>> I.e., by a "Coincidence", all This Fits perfectly well the Date of "January 12", 2020, that controversial Maltese Socialist Prime Minister Muscat has notoriously Chosen for his own Resignation, under Pretext to Supervise the Investigation on Daphne's Murder.

While, on the Contrary, the Victim's Family and Friends, as well as the Opposition, (mainly Center-Right, but not only), have Urged for Muscat's Resignation already Since End November 2019, Arguying that, Otherwise, he Risks to Deviate the Investigation from its normal Direction, by Influencing its course through the Numerous Cronies that he has Placed around each Step to make, during the Crucial Next 40 Days (Comp., f.ex:.., etc).

Sarkozy and Merkel want deals with Obama on European Security at Strasbourg's NATO 2009 Summit

oscenato
------------------
In parallel but concording moves, EU Chair, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angie Merkel both invited this week US-President elect, Barack Obama, to discuss important deals breaking new ground on European Security during the NATO's 60 Years Anniversary Summit of Heads of State in Strasbourg, where Obama is expected to make his 1st visit to Europe as a President on April 2009.

Merkel focused mainly on smoother NATO - EU Defence and Security policy cooperation, while Sarkozy spoke about PanEuropean Security, associating both Russia and the USA, proposing to freeze missile and shields' deployement until an agreement is reached.

But both tackled some hard nuts to crack : Turkey's VETO against the participation of EU Member Cyprus to EU-NATO cooperation, and Russia's anouncement on deployment of missiles up to Kaliningrad, at EU's belly, in reply to USA's wish to set up missile shields in EU States such as Poland or Czech Republic, etc.


---------------------
- "Certainly...one of the points that we'll dicuss with the New US President", Barak OBAMA, "who will come f'or the 1st time in Europe as president, at the NATO Summit", co-hosted by France and Germany in Strasbourg, ""concerns, above all, the European Security and Defence Policy" (ESDP), and "the relations between NATO and its partners", with whom it should "work together", anounced earlier this week Merkel.

We must find "a reasonable and adequate concept to articulate NATO and European Security and Defense policy", because of a "series of practical issues, sometimes difficult to understand", but that "we must discuss".

- "An example" of that is "the issue of Cyprus and Turkey", said Merkel, where Ankara raises problems "from Kosovo up to Afghanistan", as also CoE's chair, Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt recently observed in Strasbourg replying to EuroFora's questions.

- "We must do something to smoothen this problem for good, and not only on a case-by-case basis, laboriously negotiated each time". Here, we must find "a reasonable and adequate concept to articulate NATO and European Security and Defense policy", Merkel stressed.

- "With good will from all sides, it could and should be posible. Germany wants also to help on that". Otherwise, "the coming generations will not understand why it took Decades to do so". But, if we "don't even achieve that for Decades, this would be an Historic Failure !", the German Chancellor warned

- "I think that our American partners are increasingly realizing that", Merkel said, pleading for "a stronger European Security and Defence policy, with which, I believe, the Atlantic Security Partnership can also strengthen and solidify".

Meanwhile, USA is also due to take in 2009 a special status inside EU-led EUROCORPS, the European Army HeadQuarters, based in Strasbourg.

Merkel said that after meeting in Berlin with NATO's Secretary General, Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, earlier this week, precisely in order to "prepare NATO's Summit", scheduled for the beginning of April 2009 in Strasbourg.

Scheffe, knows well Strasbourg, since he chaired the CoE, as Holland's Foreign Minister, when he brokered a controversial deal precisely on Turkey and Cyprus about the implementation of ECHR judgements on Greek Cypriot displaced persons' houses and properties in 2003. He returned later at least once, for a WEO meeting at the CoE, where he precisely had highlighted such EU - NATO issues.

EU Commission's 2008 Report on Turkey has just observed that, on European Defense - Security policy, "Turkey continues to object to EU-NATO Cooperation which would involve all EU Member States". "This created Problems for EU-NATO co-operation in the context of Civilian ESDP missions, in particular in Kosovo and Afghanistan".

 French EU Chair, President Sarkozy and Merkel are visiting Washington on Friday and Saturday for a Global G-20 Summit with current US President George Bush, on the sidelines of which are expected preparatory contacts with US President-elect Obama's entourage, even if himself might stay in Chicago until he takes over on January 21.

Before going to Washington, Sarkozy concluded today an UE - Russia Summit with Dmitry Medvedev, where they "spoke in length on PanEuropean Security" :

- As EU President, I proposed that we meet on mid-2009 in a framework such as OSCE's in order to set the foundations of a Future Pan-European Security, which would associate Russia and USA, and that, meanwhile, nobody speaks about deploying missiles or shields, which complicate the situation".

- NATO's Summit in Strasbourg-Kehl, on April 2009 is a perfect occasion to discuss with our American friends and to prepare a possible OSCE Summit for these issues f.ex. for June or July", Sarkozy concluded.

- We must all abstain from Unilateral measures" dangerous for Europe's security. "Russia only reacted to decisions taken by some other countries. But if they are ready to cooperate, we are ready to discuss. EU could be an intermediary", added Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, before going himself too at the Washington G-20 Economic Summit.
