*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- The EU Council seems Favorable to the Authorisation of More and Different Vaccines, if they meet the required Conditions, in order to Boost EU Citizens' Vaccinations against the Virus, according to what Replied to a relevant "Eurofora"'s Question a Top EU Official, in a Video-Press Briefing with Brussels, at the Eve of an important EU Summit of Heads of State/Government there, on 24-25 June 2021.

The EU Summit is due to Discuss and Decide on Europe's Anti-Virus' Policy and Recovery Issues, as the 1st specialized Topic of that High-Levell meeting, Tomorrow Afternoon, around 4 p.m. Before that, at about 1 p.m., the Heads of State/Government are due to Meet and Discuss with UNO's Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, on "Global Challenges", (which eventualy, might Include also the Pandemic.

 - "Eurofora" had explained that the Reason for which we Raised that Question, was mainly in order to Help the Vaccination Succeed, and, inter alia, also to Aleviate some Fears or reserves Notoriously expressed by Various People in Europe and/or elsewhere in the World. In this regard, Already, f.ex., even the German Minister of Health, Jens Spahn, (CDU), has Recently been reported as Advising to Authorize, at least, 2 or 3 More Vaccines, f.ex. of a more Classical Technology, in order to Bypass the Reserves of some.

Meanwhile, it's well Known that, in Some Countries and/or Sectors of the Society, Currently, there are, still, More People who Continue to Hesitate, for Various Reasons, than Elsewhere, (as, f.ex., in France, sometimes, even the Members of a Medical Staff, etc).

It's also true that, Until Now, one of the Problems seems to be also the Fact that, among the Few (4) Vaccines already Authorized by the EU, one has been Notoriously almost Discreditated ("Astrazeneka"), another seems Less Efficient for all, ("Johnson"), and the 2 Others (the Turkish "BNT/Pfizer" and the Armenian's "Moderna"), adopted a Novel, Not Yet well Known, m.RNA Technology, wbile there is Not even 1 "Classical" Vaccine... On the Contrary, f.ex., China has Recently Published Official Health Authorities' Article claiming that they would, Already, have, at least Three (3) "Classic" Vaccines Authorized and used against this Virus !

Last, but not least, Most People doN't even Know, clearly and timely enough, How Many and Which Vaccines might, eventualy, be available, throughout the whole World. F.ex. Russians recently Claimed to have "3" Vaccines Ready, But, in fact,Only One (1) is really Known by Most People... The "WHO", at nearby Geneva, made some Efforts, Recently, to Better Inform on the Existing Vaccines, among the Various Countries, Authorized or Not Yet, But such Data are Not Always Complete, Neither so Easy to Access, in real Practice, yet, even if they have the merit to exist...

=> In such Circumstances, the Position taken by the above-mentioned Senior Official of the EU Council, in Reply to that "Eurofora"s Question, (speaking Under Condition of Anonymity), appeared, a priori, Adamant :

     - "On the Different Vaccines, that are, Possibly, to be Validated :

- "That is for EMA to Decide !", (i.e., up to EU's Independent Experts' relevant body).

- "As Soon as We (EU's Political Authorities) have a Positive Decision by the EMA, the Vaccine Will bave Access at the Market", he Vowed.

=> "I Understand that, When there is a Discussion into the Rolling Review, that they Need outstanding Conditions, that are Not Validated, that means that the (required) Conditions are Not Met !".

>>> - Simply Because "there canNot be Any Other Answer"..., he Firmly Stressed.

I.e., in Other Words, to put it in a Nutshell, the Top Official of EU Council Honestly Believes that, as a matter of Principle, Any efficient Vaccine which really Meets the relevant Conditions, Should, Indeed, be Soon Authorized by the competent EU Technical Services, and Made Available to EU Citizens.

"Eurofora" can't but Congratulate the EU Council for such a Crystal-Clear Position, as far as Principles are concerned.

Therefore, we can't but Hope that this will, Indeed, be Done, Also in Real Practice, (i.e. as far as those "Independent Experts", linked mainly to EU Commission, are concrned : Comp. Supra), asap !

Particularly when there are several Human Lives at Stake...

    EU-educated charming young Chinese presence started to be felt in Council of Europe's corridors in Strasbourg at the aftermath of an Historic Resolution adopted by its Parliamentary Assembly in favor of opening the possibility to give China a special "Status" in the PanEuropean Organization.

    - "My proposal to offer to China an official status as "Observer", in short term, under conditions, was welcomed" by the CoE : "The road to Dialogue between China and the CoE has now been opened", declared after Strasbourg's debates and votes the Head of France's delegation, MEP Jean-Claude Mignon.

    "Neither complacency, nor a mere condamnation of China", but a "wise approach of a political issue of great importance", advised Mignon to all those who'd either overload claims on Democracy, Human Rights or Minorities, or close their eyes to anything, there as elsewhere... A balance which was not exactly followed during debates, contrary to Mignon's personal stance, which appeared rather even-handed.

    China is the only UNO Security Council permanent member which has not yet any status at the CoE, being still obliged to be represented in Strasbourg by a General Consul : USA and Canada, even Japan and .. Mexico, have already got a special Status at the CoE, following Strasbourg's decision, back in 1995, to counter-balance the accession of Russia (1996) by creating special links to traditional "Western-world" allies.

    All former "Socialist" Eastern European countries started to have relations whith the CoE through its former sector on Culture and Education, before becoming full Members of Strasbourg's paneuropean organization. Speculations were unfolding recently about establishing a probable concrete link with China through the topical issue of anti-doping in Sport, on the occasion of the 2008 Olympic games.

    More spectacular, a meeting co-organized a few years ago in Strasbourg, by EuroFora and the International Space University between EU Parliament's long-time Rapporteur for EU's Satellite Navigation system "GALILEO", German MEP Brigitte Langenhagen, and a group of postgraduate students, attracted special interest from Chinese experts, and was followed, in less than a month, by the anouncement of China's intention to support EU's GALILEO project with a participation of 200 million €.

    Compared to that, revendications of .. "Turkish" Minorities, by Turkish MEPs, this week in Strasbourg, spreading through a wide area extended ...from Greece up to China, appeared less worrying, than pittoresque...

    Meanwhile, France's political will to start involving China and other important countries in European and Global affairs was due to be raised also at the forthcoming G-8 Summit in Japan by President Nicolas SARKOZY, (NDLR  : confirmed on July 5)

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 ?
