*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- Astonishingly, the Only Known recent Measures taken by EU Commission and/or Council Nowadays on Medicine against the Deadly Virus, Both on Cures and on Vaccines, are related to Controversial Issues about Genetic Manipulations that may Affect Human Persons !

 - Indeed, on July 3, 2020, EU Commission surprized by giving its 1st and Unique, until now, conditional Authorisation for a Cure against the Virus to Controversial, Twice Failed and repurposed, Former Anti-Hepatites and/or Anti-Ebola (where it made a "Flop"...) Drug "Remdesivir", a very Expensive, Patented to Multinational Corporation "Gilead", USA product, of totaly UnProven yet Efficiency vis a vis the Still Too High Number of Deaths provoked by the Virus, whose Only alleged Effect would be to sometimes Shorten, a bit, the Time for Recovery, Even if this Claim appears too Shaky, ill-Based on Controversial, UnControlable, UnCertain and UnReliable Data, of just 1 UnFinished Trial, (See Facts at: ..., etc).

"Remdesivir", which Costs about ...3.120 $ per 5 Days, or 6.240 $ per 10 Days of Treatment, is given Only by IntraVenous Infusion, inside a Hospital, under Close Medical Monitoring, and its Production Depending from a Licence by Corporatio "Gilead" (which Holds a Patent), has Many Troublesome "Side-Effects", and is Not Yet of Proven Safety, until now, acts by Penetrating inside Human Cells, Affecting their RNA/DNA, and (hopefuly) Blocking the Gene of a Protein related to the Replication of the Virus, at already Infected People.

It's Not yet clearly Known IF such a Genetic Manipulation on Humans, Clumsily pushed by some Lobbies behind "Gilead" on 3 successive more or less, sooner or later, Failed Attempts on Hepatites, Ebola, or COVID-2019, might be really "Safe", or Not, for Human Health in the Long Term... (F.ex. Cloning of Sheep Dolly was revealed Catastrophic only some Years Later)... 

On the Contrary, 3 Other, Already Known Drugs against the Virus, (mainly French "HCQ+", mainly Russian "Avifavir", and UK's "DexaMethaSone"), can be Easily Taken through simple Pils, Don't Cost almost Nothing, and, Most Importantly, revendicate a notable Efficiency able to Save Human Lives. At the same time, they appear Safe, and do Not Affect the Human Genome, (at least the first 2 of them). But, Curiously, EU Commission has Not yet shown Any Interest for them...

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

+ In Addition, Today : on July 14, EU Council has just announced a Surprizing Decision, concerning Vaccines against the Virus, to Exceptionaly Lift the Main Checks and Controls normaly due on Any "Genetically Modified Organisms" they might use in Tests, Storage, Transport, Distribution, and/or Operation throughout the Environment, and even inside Human Persons...

It means that the Prior "Environmental Risk Assessment", Normaly Due for any "GMO" "Deliberately Released into the Environment", and/or the Prior "Consent" (i.e. Authorisation), by the competent Public National Authority, for any "contained Use" of "GMO"s, (according to relevant 2001 and 2009 EU Directives), are No More Required when it comes to Trials, Storage, Transport, or Distribution, etc., of Any Vaccine related to the Virus !

- Only the "Sites where the Genetic Modification of Wild-type Viruses ... take place", i.e. in case of so-called "Investigational Medicinal Products", they continue to be Controlled as before, because of their Extreme Dangerosity. On All Other such cases, the usual Controls are Lifted.

This goes not only whenever such projects for Vaccines may "Contain GMOs", But Also when "they Consist in GMOs" (sic !) themselves... In Both cases, what is at Stake is eventual "Risks to Human Health, and the Environment".

Moreover, it applies Even in case of "Foreseeable Negative ...Impacts" on the Environment, etc. ! In that case, both the interested Private Companies and the concerned States, should Only try to ..."Minimise" any such "Negative ...Impacts" of those "GMOs", by any simply "Appropriate" "Measure", and, as far as "States" are concerned, Only ..."IF Feasible" (re-sic !!).

Such an Obviously Dangerous Measure, (which would Widely Apply as long as the WHO still qualifies the Situation as a "Pandemic", or, at least, the EU Commission as an "Emergency", for All, Both Pre-Existing and New Vaccine projects), was Added Only ...at the Last Minute in EU Parliament's Agenda, (where it was Absent at the "Final Draft Agenda !), using an "Urgent Procedure" for Vote...

Scandalously, Not even the Slightest public Debate didN't emerge among MEPs on that UnPrecedented and Important Issue for People's Health and the Environment, in the relevant July 2020 Session in Brussels, (where any such Debate was Absent, even in its Final Agenda) !  However, Despite all that, there were 5 Critical Amendments, which managed to Attract nearly ...All the Anti-Establishment MEPs, including 3 Political Groups and almost All "Independents", bringing Exceptionaly Together the "Left" and the "Greens" with the ...Rightists of "ID" and Independents, (as well as some Dissidents from "Liberals/Renew", "EPP", "Socialists"-the least, etc), and Resulting in such a diverse Opposition with almost 1/3 of the Votes in a Crucial Amendment (f.ex. about 220 - 470)...

It all Looks, mutatis-mutandis, almost Similar to that UnPrecedented Socio-Political Phenomenon, that had UnExpectedly Emerged, Recently, f.ex., in Italy, when Salvini's "Rightists" had Notoriously made, initially, an Alliance with the "5 Stars" Leftist Movement created by Bepe Grillo, soon resulting into a ...Majority Government, (before they were anew divided, much Later-on).

=> I.e., Tricky, Not so "Democratic" Methods on such Important (even Bio-Ethical) Issues, (Comp. Facts Supra), may, perhaps, Provoke some ..."Bumpy" Political Upheavals, in Popular Reactions, Afterwards, here or there, in one way or another...

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.

Polls

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 ?
