- "On Cyprus, a 2 States solution is Not an Option, for us !", clearly stressed that EU Council's Top Official Today, (speaking on condition of Anonymity, as it's usual in this kind of "Off the Record Press Briefings").

His Statement came just a few Hours Before UNO's Secretary General, Antonio Guterrez, Flies to Brussels, where he is Scheduled to Meet and Discuss with the EU Leaders at that Summit, Tomorrow, after 1p.m., "during 2 Hours", Both about "Global Challenges", and on "GeoPolitical Issues".

This Two Days-Long (24-25 June 2021) Top Meeting is due to Deal, from its 1st Evening's Working Diner, Also with 5 "Foreign Policy Issues" : "Turkey, Russia, Bielorussia, Ethiopia and Libya", added anOther Experienced EU Council's Senior Official, indicating that the obviously interrelated Cyprus' Issue would be included at the Top of the List.

That matter has a Particular Importance for the EU, Inter alia, also since it has Succesfully Avoided any Violent Conflict between its Member States, who live in Peace during some 71 Years, also Because their Borders Remained Stable all this Time, while, on the Contrary, Turkey pushes now openly for a ...Secessionist move in EU Member Cyprus, which would inevitably create Trouble inside Europe, even for various other European Countries too !

    UK Prime Minister, Gordon Brownn's promise to French President Sarkozy that Great Britain will proceed to Lisbon Treaty's ratification was certainly fuelled further by MEPs' warning, meanwhile in Strasbourg, that all Enlargement stops until EU can have efficient Institutions for more than 27 member Countries.    

    EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert Poettering, formally announced this position, after consulting all Political Groups' Chairmen, Monday in Strasbourg, and most MEPs made the point crystal clear during Plenary Debates on Wednesday.   

     Thus, from Thursday, UK's House of Commons, at Westminster, gave its "Green Light" to Lisbon Treaty's ratification, which was completed later-on, after ovecoming some last minute attempts to block the process.

    But, "all that noise is a misinterpretations by some Western Media : Poland will ratify the EU Treaty, and even earlier than some other Member Countries", declared to "EuroFora", in a surprisingly optimistic tone, the Polish Chairman of EU Parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee, Jacek Saryuswolski...
