*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- As the forthcoming EU Heads of State/Government's Summit of 21-22 October is due to Deal also with "Digital Transformation", including "Global Partnerships", a relevant "Eurofora"s Proposal for the Creation of a "European Green SmartPhone", was Welcomed by a Top EU Official as "a Great Idea", pending a more detailed examination, in Response to Our Question at a Video-Press Briefing with Brussels, under condition of Anonymity and "off the record", because of the delicate character of such a matter, Obviously Linked also with the Ecological/Green orientation of EU's current Big Economic ReVival Plan.

The Full, Detailed Proposal was made Initialy as Early as, Already Since July 2020, in an "Eurofora" Publication aiming to Help Bypass a Deadlock Risk during Harsh Negotiations, then, among EU Leaders at an Exceptionaly Long and "Hot" Summit in Brussels, apparently Divided on the EU's Big Socio-Economic ReVival Plan : By Creating strong Common Interests, through Ambitious and Popular Big Projects Innovating and Strengthening all Europe, such Sterile Divisions Could and should be easily ByPassed, "Eurofora" Believed then, as Also Nowadays..., (See : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/eurevivalsummitneedseuropeanvision.html, in fine).

  - "Angelo ! It's been a while... Don't make it Too Long, if you can."

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

"Eurofora": - "Dear Sir : 2 Questions, if you can :

- One, about the Energy... and ...Foreign Policy..." (See:

+ + And an absolutely Other (Topical)Issue : You spoke yourself about the (EU) Interest there is in order to <<Give a Push>> to the Digital aspect of the Economy, which EU Planned, as you know, Both on Ecology and Green :

=> Why not Find Ideas for Projects that could Link (precisely) the Digital and the Green ?

- I think, f.ex., at the Creation of a European SmartPhone, which Could be a "European Green SmartPhone", with Lower Radiations, and Other aspects, f.ex. Independent or New O.S., (even China Wanted to Cooperate with us on this Global Issue), etc.

- "In order to have something Concrete for the (EU) Citizens, But also very Important for the Economy, and Important for Europe's Sovereignity".

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

    - "OK, You made your Point"...     

-"I can Answer Any Question, But Not Sure that I can give a Satisfactory Answer". ....

 + "dOn Your ("Eurofora"'s) .. Question :

- "There is an Answer : I have My Limitations on the Topic..."

    -'I See the Link one may make between the Digital, Green, and Possible <<Green Smart-Phone>>, which seems to be a Great Idea !".

- "But, to be Frank, I am Not as Good to Answer, (Because) I am Not Aware of the Debates", between EU Member States on such Issues.

=> -"May be, we can Find someone to give you a Clear Answer, and Provide you with the Right FeedBack on this", he wished.

- Indeed, "I think that this 2nd Question could be More Appropriate for someone who is Working for the (EU) Commission", concretely Suggested anOther EU Official.

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

+ In order to Facilitate things, "Eurofora" Re-Publishes, here, anew, the Full Abstracts concerning Our relevant Initial Proposal, as it had been presented Already since that Crucial EU Brussels' 7/2020 Summit :

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

<< ... => Indeed, Europe and its People mostly Need Ambitious and Far-Reaching, Common Big PanEuropean Projects, able to trigger the Enthousiasm of EU Citizens, and Satisfy Vital Needs of Wide Impact, Bringing Together, in Close Cooperation, Efficient Coordination, Unified Planification, and Joint Action, Firmly Uniting as Many as possible among EU Member Countries.


    >>> In other words, Big and Important PanEuropean Projects, Intelligently Designed, so that they Can Include also Poor and/or Devastated Areas and Populations, Hardly Hit by any Hazards, Natural or Man-made Catastrophes, as well as Normally Functioning EU Member Countries, and some Pioneer, Ultra-Performant Champions, Able to Imagine, Organize and Lead, a productive Dynamic Union, capable to Create Operational, Fundamental Common Interests, (See, f.ex.: ... + ..., etc).


    This Obviously is a very Different View, from that of Mere "Help", allegedly given mainly by Some Countries, to certain Other, Poor and/or Devastated, Foreign Countries, Elsewhere, withOut Any other Link between them, and/or Any such kind of "Distributing" Money and/or Assets among Separate Entities, acting Disparately, Each one on Its Own, in Separate, National, or even Regional, Independent and UnRelated Mini-Projects, practically Ignoring Each-Other...


    The First Case, can Create Real "Cohesion"; (seeked also by EU 2020 Chair, German Chancellor Angie Merkel : See .., etc), and even Unity of Interests, Common Aspirations, Joint Purpose. But the Second Case, Inevitaby Risks to Provoke, on the Contrary, Division, Opposition, Different Interests, Separation, even more or less Conflicts !


    => In Consequence, f.ex., Mr. Rutte, from the point of View of his North-Western Netherlands, he speaks about ..."the South" (Comp. Supra), where, he's Afraid, (Rightly or Wrongly), that, soon, They might, Even ..."Not See" Anymore his Country, (f.ex. if Unanimity was Lifted inside EU Council : Comp. Also Supra). And Austrian Prime Minister Kurz, is Concerned about How to "Explain to Our (Austrian) TaxPayers", according to "Which Criteria", and "Where Will Go" the EU Money, (f.ex. in Italy's "Messogiorno" or in Spain, etc., i.e. Far Away, and withOut Any real Connexion)...


    On the Contrary, let's take, f.ex., an Entirely Different Case, (currently still Hypothetic, But Topical, Possible and Useful to Realise Nowadays), like the Invention and Production, in and by Europe, of what could be Named as a ..."Green (Smart) Phone" ! I.e. a Possible PanEuropean Project, Concerning Both "Digitalisation", "Environment" and Human Health, as well as "Europe's Role in the World", (Comp. Supra, and: ..., etc), and, Obviously, Economy and Jobs. Such an Innovative Product, could Fill a Gap among Ordinary Current Smart-Phones, First of all, by Aiming to Create a Modern Phone withOut Too Much Electro-Magnetic Waves on the Human Body and/or Head, (something which, Unfortunately, does No More Exist among Most, if not All, Recent SmartPhones, Currently at the Global Market), f.ex. as Finland's "Nokia" and/or France's former "Alcatel" had reportedly Planned to do, just a Few Years Ago, But were, apparently, Hindered to realize, for UnKnown Reasons. Many People and Medical Doctors, Reearchers, etc., Notoriously Believe that such "EMW" Might be, more or less Dangerous for Human Health, and Official Data, either in the USA, or Even in the WHO, Recently Lack, about the Exact Levels of Anodyne or, on the Contrary, potentialy Dangerous "EMW"s... + In Addition, Europe has the Means, (and even the Need : f.ex. for "Digital Sovereignity" : Comp. Supra), to Add also an Original, Independent "Operation System" Software, ("OS"), for such a New, European SmartPhone, which would Make it a Rare, if not Unique Nowadays, such product, which would Not be Obliged to be Submitted to the Notorious Oligo-Monopolistic OS of Americans "Android" (of "Google" Giant) or "Apple", which currently Dominate the World, with various Abuses. Indeed, already, China has Recently Proposed to Europe to Help it Financially to Create (by the EU) such an Independent, Brand New OS for SmartPhones, (in order to Face Hostile Pressure and Bullying from USA's "Android") ! In this regard, Probably, inter alia, f.ex., a Europe-Oriented French Company, based at Grenoble, which Currently Develops and Operates a "Lin-Phone", Based on "Linux" European Independent OS, (to whom German mainstream Medias as "Die Welt" had Refered, Already since 2013, when the Edouard Snowden's Global Scandal about US Mass Spying at the Web had emerged, Including Even Chancellor Merkel's own 2 Smart-Phones [sic !]), may be Practicaly Useful... In addition, Perhaps, it could be Interesting, (also as a Landmark Commercial PanEuropean"Plus" in Global Competition), if EU Associated, here, something as the Recently Created ... "Immune System", New OS for Smart-Phones, just Designed by Famous Russian "Kaspersky" Company's CEO himself, in order to Protect it from Web "Virus" and/or various Other "Cyber-Attacks", as he Announced in a landmark INTW published by "TASS". And, concerning such a Multi-Innovative "Green Phone", it would Certainly be Useful and Logical to Even Add anOther, Recently Invented, relevant Capability : That of a Smart-Phone with ...2 Screens, (Independently Operating Both or Each), One of which Serves particularly in case of Lack of Sufficient Electricity, (f.ex. at the Country-side, or After Intense Use DownTown, etc), since it Consumes Only a Small, Tiny Quantity of Electricity ! This was Initially Created by a Russian Company, linked to Nearby Frankfurt in Germany, as a PanEuropean tool, Used f.ex. Even throughout ...Siberia (sic !), and was Later, further Developed also by a Chinese Company, with European Links, which First Presented it at a recent ...Berlin's Annual Digital Fare, often Inaugurated by Merkel, (See, f.ex.: ..., etc).

=> All this Could Timely Result into a Landmark, Innovative and Unique, PanEuropean "Green Phone", Able to Join 4 relevant useful Digital Innovations (Comp. Supra), and, Eventually, Associate Interesting Cooperation with Russia and/or China (Comp. Supra), for the Design, Production and Commercialisation of which, the Best would be "NOKIA" of Finland, (i.e. anOther EU Country, Often Associated to the "Frugal 4" Critics of EU's "Recovery Fund" : Comp. Supra), which Notoriously was the Historic European ... Pioneer Birthplace of Smart-Phones, the First in the World ! But the Most Interesting thing, for EU's "Recovery" Plans, is that, Currently, "NOKIA" was reportedly Obliged, After the Virus' Crisis, to just Announce the Imminent Shut-Down of several among its Factories in France, Affecting Many Thousands of Workers, Technicians, etc., (including those Formerly of "Alcatel" and anOther ex-French Company, also Near Strasbourg, in Brittany, etc, that the Finnish had, meanwhile, Bought) ! >>> So that, such a Move, could Obviously result into a very Interesting European Project, of Both Social, Economic, Innovative, Ecological, Digital, and EU "Sovereignity" in the World, Policies, precisely Supported by EU's "ReVival Fund" and the InComing German EU Presidency's priorities, as they were recently presented by Angie Merkel at EU Parliament in Brussels, earlier This Month (See: ..., etc) !


>>> As a Consequence, inter alia, f.ex., Northern Scandinavian EU Member Country Finland, could No More speak about those Factories currently Threatened to Close Down in France, (Comp. Supra), as if they might Concern Only a so-called ..."South", (i.e. Contrary to what the Head of "Frugal" Countries, Dutch Prime Minister Rutte, just did at EU Summit in Brussels : Comp. Supra), since those Smart-Phone Factories are, precisely, ...Its Own Network's Properties, (Controled by Finnish Company "NOKIA") !


+ Then, Even Mr. Rutte himself, Might, perhaps, Start to Find it somehow Difficult to Continue to Separate the "North" from the "South" of Europe, inter alia, Also by the Fact that, by a Coincidence, His Own Phone reportedly is a Finnish ..."NOKIA" (Comp Supra)... >>

    The incoming Swedish EU Presidency (July-December 2009) may still remain in favour of Turkey's controversial EU bid, despite June 2009 EU Elections' results, but it has "very strong demands on Turkey"'s obligation to respect EU Rules, said the Head of Swedish Foreign Ministry's Press Service, Cecilia Julin, to "EuroFora", reacting to critical Press reports.

    - "I know (that) the link is often made also to Sweden's position on Turkey"'s controversial EU bid. Indeed, "we (Swedish EU Presidency) are very much engaged in the future membership of Turkey, but not without fullfiling all the Criteria".

    - "It's very clear that we (Swedish EU Presidecny) have very Strong Demands on Turkey, in a sort of concept for Future membership of the Union, ...which will be a Long Process...", she stressed.

    This means, in particular, "the Copenhagen Criteria (on Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law), and also the adaptation to the Acquis of the European Union".

     - "If you listen to what Mr. Bildt (the Swedish Foreign Minister) says on Turkey at different occasions, it's very clear : We want Turkey to become part of the Union, in the Future. But we want it to fullfil all the Criteria : The Acquis of the European Union. That's very clear", she concluded.

    The Senior Official of the Swedish Foreign Ministry was reacting to critical Press Reports, from Brussels' Journalists invited by EU Commission's secretariat to Stockholm, who claimed that Bildt was abusing of a ..."Whip" (sic !) against Cyprus, by "threatening" the presence of UNO's Peace-keeping force at the "Green line" which separates the island's Government-controlled areas from the territories occupied by Ankara's army, if Nicosia didn't accept any political solution, regardless of Turkey's demands, before the end of 2009.

        Governing AKEL Party's new Secretary General, Andros Kyprianou, reacted by declaring that no-one can threat the People of Cyprus : -"We shall decide for our Future, and nobody else",  he reportedly said, asking to "keep calm". "In order to find a Solution soon, certain basic Principles must be respected", he stressed, calling those who feel an urgency to use their influence on Turkey. Other Political Parties were more critical.

    This was a reference to recently reported statements by Turkish Minister Bagis, Prime Minister Tayip Erdogan and Turkey's National Security Council (a Military-Political body), accused to push towards a partitionist "2 States" solution, contrary to UNO SC Resolutions for Cyprus' reunification.

    December 2009 is a crucial moment for EU's appraisal of Turkey's controversial EU bid, because EU Council has decided to review then Ankara's compliance with the European position on the recognition of Cyprus' Government, which was clearly set out by an EU reply of 21 September 2005 to Turkish Prime Minister Tayip Erdogan's claims, refusing to recognize even the existence of EU Member Cyprus, in controversial statements he made to London (former EU chair) on July 29, 2005.

    EU Parliament's latest Resolution on Turkey, adopted on March 2009 in Strasbourg, warned Ankara that "the non-fulfillment of Turkey's commitments... by December 2009, may further seriously affect the process of Negotiations" with the EU.

    In practice, the issue boils down to Ankara's "embargo" against Ships and Airplanes using Cyprus' seaports or airports at the strategic EU island, which traditionaly hosts one of the World's biggest Shipping flags. EU has already "freezed" 6 relevant Chapters in EU - Turkey Negotiations since December 2006, after Ankara refused to fullfil a commitment it had undertaken when EU had decided to open controversial "accession" negotiations with Turkey, back on December 2005.

    - "As far as EU - Turkey relations are concerned, it's clear that Turkey needs to fullfil its obligation of full, non-discriminatory implementation of the additional Protocol (to "EC-Turkey Association Agreement"),  This is an important issue....and should be addresseed as soon as possible as it clearly affects the pace of the accession negotiations.Issues covered by the Declaration of September 2005 will continue to be followed up, and progress is urgently awaited", warned earlier in Strasbourg the out-going Czech EU Presidency (former vice-Prime Minister Alexander Vodra).

    But the Head of the Swedish Foreign Ministry's Press Service, Cecilia Julin, dismissed "interpretations" by "some" that Foreign Minister Carl Bildt was reportedly "threatening" Cyprus with consequences on the UNFICYP, if it doesn't accept any solution until December 2009, while Turkey is reportedly delaying in an attempt to impose a partitionist "2 States" solution.

    On the contrary, Julin, stressed that "Sweden has strong demands on Turkey'"s respect of "Copenhagen Criteria and EU Acquis".

    Meanwhile, Sweden  is "concerned" about the risk of "Stalemate" in Cyprus' Talks, but is well aware that "the main responsibilities lie with the two leaders and the UNO", Europe playing only a role of "facilitator".

    After carefully verifying, the Head of Swedish Foreign Ministry's Press Service, stressed to "EuroFora" that Bildt's reference to UNFICYP "was not linked to a Threat", and dismissed those who "interpreted" it so.

    On the contrary, the Swedish EU Presidency acknowledged the fact that Peace Talks are mainly for the UN and the leaders of the Cypriot communities, EU's role being limited into that of a "facilitator".

    As for Turkey's reported attempts to impose a "2 States' solution", the Head of the Swedish Foreign Ministry's Press Service sharply replied by stressing that Turkey must respect the "EU Acquis" rules.

    In particular :

    - "Basically he (Bildt) underlined that it's the leaders of the two communities in Cyprus and the UN that have the main responsibilities for solving the problem", started to say the Swedish Senior Official to "EuroFora", referring to the above-mentioned "briefing".

    - "But the EU had a role in sort of pointing out the benefits and facilitating a little bit the outcome for the settlement of the whole Cyprus' issue", she added.

    - "And he did state the Fact, that the rest of the World (i.e. USA, etc) will, of course, look at the differend issues which are at the table, and the future of the UN Peace keeping force is part of what is at the table", she admitted.

    - "I understand that some have interpreted that as a Threat, by the Swedish Minister" "But", in reality, "it's a statement of a Fact, that, when we'll look at the differend issues, one of the issues on which we shall have to take a stand on, is the future of the UN Peace keeping force in Cyprus".

    Indeed, one of the questions usually raised for a Solution of Cyprus' issue is what International and/or European or other Guarantees, by a Peace-keeping force, might be needed afterwards, eventually for a transitory period.

    Questioned anew by "EuroFora" whether (according to critical Press Reports) this could be taken as a veiled warning that, if Cyprus didn't accept any Turkish demand for any solution whatever, it might be left alone to face Ankara's Military Invasion/Occupation, she denied :

    - "He (Bildt) didn't say it in that way"... "It was not linked to a threat, or anything like that", the Head of the Swedish Foreign Ministry's Press Service stressed.

    On the contrary, "he (Bildt) underlined that the main responsibility lies with the parties concerned on the island". "The EU can try to facilitate and show the benefits of reaching a settlement. But also, when the EU and the rest of the World (i.e. USA) will have to look at it, they will look at all the Facts on the table, and the presence of the UN Peace-keeping force is one".

    And "he (Bildt) didn't speak about that at all", she replied to "EuroFora" question on Turkey's reported attemps to impose, in one way of another, a partitionist "2 States solution".

    Asked whether Bildt's aim was to incite both parties to move forward efficiently, she agreed :

    - In fact, "the EU is really very concerned with the Stalemate in the situation. Yes !", the Head of Sweden's Foreign Ministry's Press Service anounced. That's why Bildt "was hoping for the two parties (i.e. for Turkey's also) to engage and break, a little-bit, the present stalemate, come to a solution of the issue" of Cyprus.

    But, replying  to a "EuroFora"s question on the risk, denounced by several politicians in case of strict Time Deadlines, for Turkey to provoke a stalemate and wait for the time to come to impose a partitionist "2 States' solution", she reacted by pointing at Turkey's obligation to respect "EU Acquis" :

    - "Turkey must fullfil the EU Acquis : That's clear !", the Swedish Senior Official stressed.

    More details are expected when Swedish Prime Minister Reinfeldt will debate his Programme with new MEPs at EU Parliament's plenary mid-July in Strasbourg, that he has visited already in 2008.

    Foreign Minister Carl Bildt became familiar with Strasbourg's CoE last year, when Sweden chaired the PanEuropean organization of Human Rights. As EU chairman-in-office, he will also chair the 27-member States strong EU Group inside the 47-member States strong CoE.

    Minister for EU affairs, Cecilia Malmstrom is well known at EU Parliament, where she has been an active MEP of the Liberal Group for many years, following also Press Freedom issues.

    Both have already made various statements at "EuroFora", on differend topical matters.
