*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...

    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.
