*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- Moves for PanEuropean Cooperation on Human Rights' respect and European Cultural Heritage protection and promotion, starting from the Highest Level, were among the Key Measures anounced Today by the incoming New President-in-office of CoE's Highest Political body, that of its Committee of Ministers, Czech Minister of Culture Daniel Herman, in the presence of CoE's Secretary General, Thornbjorn Jagland.

- It's in Cooperation between EU Commission and the CoE that we shall Prepare the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, stressed Chairman-in-office Herman, before saluting kindly also "Eurofora" and leaving with Czech Ambassador Emil Ruffer to Strasbourg's Airport for a Flight to Prague, as he told us.

+ He also anounced that the Czech Presidency of the CoE, (for the Period of May - November 2017), will organize a High-Level Conference, with the Presidents of ECHR and EU's Court of Justice, as well as of All the Supreme Courts of CoE's 47 Member States, on "the Binding Nature of Judicial Decisions", on June.


That exceptional PanEuropean Top Conference is scheduled for 19-21 June 2017, at Brno, i.e. the "Judicial Capital" of the Czech Republic, where is Historicaly located its Highest Court, (that ECHR's President had visited, together with Prague, when he succesfuly contributed to dissipate the last hesitations for the Ratification of EU's Lisbon Treaty).

    - This is a Key part of the Main Priorities for the Incoming CoE's Czech Presidency, which also Decided to Take Over from the Concluding Cyprus' CoE's rotating Presidency, and Continue further on, their Common Priority for the development of the "Education on Human Rights' culture, as he anounced.

    - In fact, CoE is Important for us, also because it reminds that "We Belong to the European Family of Democracy and Human Rights' culture, Herman had stressed from the outset.

    - In this regard, after refering, Earlier, to a Czech Exhibition on the Historic "Charter 77", which had notoriously contributed to prepare the ReUnification of Europe, CoE's twice elected Secretary General, Thornbjorn Jagland, (an Experienced former Prime Minister and Foreign Minister from Norway, as well as Top Member of Oslo NOBEL Peace prize Committee), clearly underlined, that, for the PanEuropean Organisation of Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law, Nowadays, "the Number 1 Problem is ECHR Judgements' Execution" :


    => - "WithOut that, there is No Rule of Law, in Europe !", sternly Warned Jagland, (who had Earlier met with Herman in private).

 

    Today, however, the actual Chairmanship of CoE's Committee of Ministers' meetings specialy Dedicated to the Supervision of ECHR Judgements' Execution, have been taken over by the Dabnish Vice-Presidency of the CoE, (i.e. the Next CoE Chair, for the Next Period, starting after November 2017), according to a well established practice.

But, since the current Danish Ambassador, Arnold de Fine Skibsted, was among those who reportedly stayed Longer, after a CoE's Ministerial meeting in Cyprus, "Eurofora", at least, attested, that the Forthcoming Danish CoE's rotating Presidency seems to take close Care in Preparing well the foreseable Future, as an original Photo of an involved Danish Diplomate's Family, clearly indicates...

            Meanwhile, the European and Czech Flags flew at Half-Mast, in the usual CoE Ceremony for the New Presidency of the Paneuropean Organization, at Strasbourg's Historic City Hall, (where the CoE was Created, Back on 1949), and participants, (including CoE's Secretary General, Thornbjorn Jagland), kept 1 Minute of Silence, in Solidarity with the numerous Victims, innocent Civilian People Targetted and Killed or Wounded at a popular Musical Concert in Manchester (including Children) after being Brutaly Attacked by Cowards acting as Islamist Terrorists in the UK.  

 

         - "Culturaly, Great Britain is absolutely a European Country !". For this, and several other resaons, including the Future of Scientific Cooperation and Research, it would be a Catastroph if it really went away, cutting its relations with the EU, warned, later this Same Day, Strasbourg University's President, Michel Deneken, who had just participated in a Meeting of the 25 Biggest Universities of Europe at Cambridge, England.

*Paris/ACM/12 October 2008/-

When Europeans really feel a vital need to urgently launch common replies to challenging World Crisis, as the present Financial turmoil of Global Markets, they forge new decision-making tools and new dynamics :

The 1st in History EuroZone Heads of State and Government Summit, organized in Paris at the invitation of French President, and current EU chair, Nicolas Sarkozy, with the participation of 15 national leaders and EU institutions' chairmen, partly enlarged to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, after a highly symbolic duo with German Chancelor Angie Merkel, at General De Gaulle's birth-village, 50 Years after he welcomed there former German chancellor Adenauer (1958-2008), may have not one, but two results :

- The first, and more urgent, was to launch an "ambitious", "coherent", and "efficient" common European movement, able to stimulate "solutions" to the World Economic Crisis, as Sarkozy anounced from the outset : State Garantees (to new Bank debts up to 5 years), fresh Capital input (f.ex. by buying shares), support to distressed banks, (while also restructuring them), incite the European Central Bank to facilitate commerial bills europe-wide, etc.

"Acting swiftly", from tomorrow, national measures will quantify all these targets, with coordinated actions from all EuroZone's Governments : France, Germany, Italy and others, decided to anounce, at the same time, such concrete measures, according to agreements that we have already made all together, revealed Sarkozy at the final Press Conference, flanked by EuroZone's chairmen : EuroGroup's Jean-Claude Juncker, and Central European Bank's Jean-Claude Truchet, as well as EU Commission's Jose Baroso, to solemnly stress the will to find common European solutions.

- "United and Determined, all EuroZone's Countries will act to prove that Citizens can Trust" the Economy, Sarkozy concluded. If we attract also all EU's 27 countries, Wednesday in Brussels, then we can coordinate action with our American Friends at a Global level, he anounced.

- "With this new Toolbox, we do not want to serve Bankers, but to work for Europe and its Citizens' interests", added Juncker.

- "For the moment, we want to act urgently to regulate the Crisis. But the time will come when those responsible for this, will have to account for their actions. Yes to real Capitalism, No to Speculators. Those who abused, will face sanctions, Sarkozy warned.


Need stimulates activities which create new organs, say biologists, and Gordon Brown, compatriot of Spencer, the famous bio-Historian, would certainly not deny that, after his surprise visit to EuroZone's Summit in Paris, which attracted him one hour more than scheduled...

Decisions include also the creation of a Crisis-management European mechanism, which "requires constant Monitoring", as well as strengthening Economic policy cooperation between EuroZone's countries.

Sarkozy will be judged by History not just by the immediate Economic results, expected at the end of this week's decision-making proces at National and EU level, but also by the more far-reaching consequences at the aftermath of this Historic EuroZone 1st Summit : Will it succeed to become a precursor forging a New era in European institution's revitalization ?

Significantly, the French President sat, during discussions, between German Chancelor Merkel, and British Prime Minister Brown, facing the chairmen of EuroGroup, Juncker, ECB : Truchet, and EU Commission, Baroso, with Prime Ministers of Spain, Zapatero (a hot partisan of EuroZone's Summit) at his right side, and Italy's Berlusconi, at his left, surrounded by Austrian, Belgian, Cyprus', Finland's, Greece's, and Ireland's leaders, as well as Slovakia's, Slovenia's, Portugal's, Netherlands', Malta's and Luxembourg's leaders.

Meanwhile, those who tabled for a rift between French and German positions were faced with a smiling Merkel at De Gaulle-Adenauer's meeting place, a sunny Saturday morning, and a particularly active-looking Merkel inside the French Presidential Palace at Elysee's gardens on Sunday, (as happy few photographers discovered)..

- "De Gaulle's hilltop, at Colombey-les-2-Eglises, gave an astonishing overview to a huge landscape, entirely surrounded by splendid Nature, as far as eyes could see", said to EuroFora an obviously charmed German Journalist.

She was describing Saturday's inauguration of a High-Tech Memorial close to the Historic Giant Double Lorraine's Cross, built by famous Novelist Andre Malraux, to perpetuate the Memory of his famous call for "Resistance" to NAZI, and his vision for the creation of New Institutions and Franco-German reconciliation, to foster Europe's role in the World, also for the Future.
