*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/-
Speaking at a Press-point where "Eurofora" was Invited via Vido-Conference, just After a Brussels' EU Summit on COVID-19 Epidemic, EU Commission's President, Ursula von der Leyen, practicaly Acknowledged the Fact that "Eurofora"s previous WhistleBlowing against a Hasty DeConfinement vis a vis the Virus in Europe etc. (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/hastydeconfinementrisk.html, + ..., +..., etc), was, indeed, Right, since it has been largely proven, Meanwhile, that a too Early, Abrupt, and DisProportionate Lifting of Measures due to Protect Human Lives and Public Health then, has Failed, (as We have Already Witnessed, Based on Many WHO Data accross the World, as Early as since ...August 2020 : See relevant Publication at : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/hastydecofinementflop.html, etc) :

- Indeed, "We (EU Countries) Relaxed (Anti-Virus' Protective Measures) Too Rapidlly", as we "Learned" after this "Summer" 2020, she Replied to a Relevant Question Today, Speaking side by side, Together with EU Counci's President Charles Michel. In fact, EU Must be much More "Careful" concerning any Eventual "Lifting" of Anti-Virus "Measures", she Found Nowadays.

+"Obviously, the Exit" from the Lock-Down, which had been initialy Imposed on March (After a strange Delay to Start Protecting EU Citizens : See http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/deadlyvirusheadstoeucore.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/virusriskbutnoeuprotection.html, etc), was "Too Fast" and "Too Much !", Von der Leyen clearly Replied Also to Questions at her earlier Press Conference in Brussels Yesterday, about a relevant "Failed Strategy" of a Hasty DeConfiement, given, particularly, the Higher than expected Number of New Infections, while Deaths' subsequent Growth is looming ahead.                

=> One among the Many and Various Precautions to be taken in such circumstances in the foreseable Future, would be, also, to Distinguish Between "Necessary Work", and "Non Necessary", "Reducing" mainly the second one, she suggested, inter alia.

However, Obviously, the relevant Issues are Not Limited Only to Confinement Measures, as such, But Also to adjacent Issues concerning Vaccines, Therapy and Prophylaxy vis a vis the Virus.

Curiously, However, at least Until Now, the EU seems More Focused on Vaccines (something certainly Needed), in certain Points even on Controversial, Potentialy Dangerous for Human Rights and Privacy, Personal Data Harvesting (See, already : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/trackingeupeopleafterexposingthemtovirus.html, etc), and/or on how to "Tackle", with so-called Counter "Dis-Information" Measures, EU Citizens' Public Debates at the World-wide Web about relevant Controversies, (etc), than on Therapies (i.e. Medical Drugs) and/or Prophylaxis; (Inclusing also Vitamins and Other, more "Natural" Ways to Face the Virus, as, f.ex., even USA's 1st Lady, Melania Trump, a Native from EU Member Slovakia, Recently Evoked, speaking about her Personal Experience after Recovering from a strange Infection, Succesfuly), etc...

sarko_looks_up_applauded_after_making_the_t_point

    EU Rapporteur on Enlargment Strategy, maistream German MEP Elmar Brok, speaking to "EuroFora", welcomed the proposal made earlier this week by French President Nicolas Sarkozy for the EU to"start Now Talks with Turkey to create a common Economic and Security area", instead of full Accession, at a period when Ankara looks more and more unfit and/or unwilling to respect EU conditions.

    - "For Europe to have strong Political will, it must stop dilutiing itself in an endless Enlargement. It must have borders...Diversities enrich, on the condition that they don't undermine European Cohesion, and don't weaken EU Unity", Sarkozy stressed.
    
    - "Countries like Turkey share a part of common destiny with Europe, with which they have a vocation to build a Privileged Relation, to be closely associated, but not to become Member of the EU"  : "Noone respects his friends by telling them lies. Noone respects his friends by making them promises that will be never kept", he added.

    That's why "we'd better start, from now, negotiating with Turkey to create a common Economic and Security area", Sarkozy proposed.

Significantly, the French President was repeatedly and largely applauded by EU citizens, 3 times, when he made the Turkey point, (strategically placed between Europe's "Political Will" and its cultural heritage, historically open to mutually enriching dialogue with all the World, but never diluted).

    - "We could propose such a great ambition also to Russia, which must not be percieved as an Adversary of Europe, but as a Partner. Thus, we'd create a wide area, of more than 800 Million inhabitants, sharing the same Security, the same Prosperity", he concluded.

    Sarkozy's move was anounced at the eve of a Franco-German Top meeting with Chancellor Angie Merkel in Berlin on Sunday, to jointly launch the EU Elections campain, after an EU Summit at nearby Prague, to launch a new kind of relations, called "Eastern Partnership", with neighboring countries such as Urkaine, Belarus, Moldova, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaidjan, etc, (to which Russia, reportedly, is not - and does not want to be - included).

    As for Ukraine, which has already expressed her wish to join the EU in future, "Kiev will have a special place, and a very important role to play", replied earlier this week in Strasbourg, to an "EuroFora" question EU Chairman in office , Czech vice-Prime Minister Alexander Vodra.

    - "This direction is more Realistic for Turkey than Accession negotiations", reacted immediately EU Parliament's Rapporteur for Enlargment Strategy, mainstream German MEP Elmar Brok, commenting Sarkozy's idea for "EuroFora"

     Particularly "as far as it concerns the respect of EU Rules by both sides", he added, hinting at Turkey's now obvious inability and/or unwillingness to abide with EU Acquis, EU Commitments (fex. on Cyprus, etc), and European Democracy/Human Rights rules. (Comp. infra).

    Brok added that, in his view, a similar proposal might be made also to Ukraine and other neighbouring Countries, regardless if they have, or not, a "European vocation". This would not necessarily mean that there couldn't be any accession prospects at all." for all the countries that might be included in this area, according to Brok.  But it's preferable, particularly for Turkey, "because it's a more Realistic approach than full Membership".

    On this point, Sarkozy's proposal, (which he'll share with German Chancellor Merkel), seems more crystal-clear.

    - "Turkey does not fullfil EU Criteria, and will never fullfil EU Criteria" on Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law. "Some have been lying to Ankara, but we must tell the Truth, and have honest and close relations with her", said meanwhile to "EuroFora" on the same issue also the President of EU Parliament's largest Group of MEPs (ChristianDemocrats/EPP), Joseph Daul.

"Hot" Debate at EU Parliament reveals CHANGE of mood towards "Suspension" of EU - Tukey talks.
------------------------------
    Earlier this week, many MEPs, and even some of those who were previously in favor of Turkey's controversial EU bid, strongly criticized the persistance and even aggravation of serious Human Rights violations in the country, that ECHR continues to "unanimously" condemn ":

      - "After winning a big victory in the latest Local Elections, the pro-Kurdish party DTP almost doubled its Elected Mayors from 52 to 98", but afterwards "more than 400 politicians were thrown to Prison and prosecuted" by the Turkish Authorities, denounced on behalf of the ChristianDemocrat/EPP Group, Belgian MEP Frieda Brepoels.

     At the same time, "more than 1.500 Children are closed in Turkish Prisons", she added. "What will the EU Commission do" against these facts ?

- "Turkey appears to be at greater Distance away from Copenhagen Criteria after 4 Years of accession Negotiations, than when they started !", denounced on behalf of the Liberal Group, German MEP Alexander Lambsdorf.    

"On the central issue of Press Freedom, Critical Journalists face obstacles for their accreditation, others are prosecuted, condemned, fined and/or jailed, Media blocked or closed", he denounced.   

 - "EU Made 2 grave Mistakes with Turkey : To start accession negotiations, and to continue them", despite everything, criticized Dutch MEP Bastian Belder, on behalf of the Ind/Dem group.
