*Strasbourg/CoE/Angelo Marcopolo/- Foreign Military Interventions by Turkey are incompatible with a Solution of Cyprus' Issue based on EU Law, stressed the President of Greece, professor Prokopis Pavlopoulos, who is also a French-educated Specialist on Legal issues concerning Public Law of the State.


He was Replying to a Question raised by Liberal French MEP Comte at PanEuropean CoE's Plenary Assembly's Spring 2017 Session this week in Strasbourg (24-28/4/2017), where he was invited to make a Keynote Address to MEPs Today, just Before a Speech at Strasbourg University's "Political Science Forum", scheduled for Later this Aftenoon, on "European Values", (See relevant "Eurofora"s NewsReport at : ...).

The Cyprus Issue is "an Open Wound" since it still Faces, since 1974, a Foreign Military Occupation, he observed, speaking of Ankara's Invasion/Occupation troops at the Northern Part of the Island.
In Fact, it's an International and particularly European Poblem, and not just a National Problem for Greece and Cyprus, he stressed.


Indeed, a Solution of Cyprus Issue could better be found on the Basis of EU Law. Because Cyprus is a Member of the EU, and even of its core area of €uozone, while, in Addition, it's Only a Solution Based on EU Law which could apply the EU Acquis, professor Pavlopoulos observed.


He referred, specificaly, inter alia also f.ex. to "Article 4§2" of the "Primary EU Law", related to EU Member States' "Sovereignity", which is Incompatible with Military Occupation, Foreign "Guarantees", etc.

A Precedent was f.ex. "Germany's ReUnification", where the full Application of EU Acquis had to Wait, from 1989 up to 1993, until the Last Soldier of former USSR Left the Eastern German area, as also the New President of Germany, Experienced former Foreign Minister Steinmeier, recently evoked in EU Parliament in Strasbourg.


Otherwise, it could even create a different, Dangerous Precedent for EU Member States, Risking to Undermine National Sovereignity of EU Countries, so that Noone would ever commit the Crime to yield to something which would Hinder EU's Unity and ability to Defend is own Family. It's Not Only about Cyprus itself, the President of Greece Warned.


Moreover, even Turkey would Gain from a Solution of Cyprus' Issue, while also Turkish Cypriots are Victims of the current situation, he pointed out.   

 

UN sponsored Cyprus Talks have become practicaly Stalled, under various Pretexts, since Turkey presented, a few Months ago, official Claims to maintain Troops at the Island and for other Unilateral Military Interventions in the Future again.

Brixen-Bressanone/ACM/3.8.08

An appeal to make the "World more Human", by defending basic Human Values, helping those in need, and paying hommage to Nature, figured high in Pope Benedict's long-awaited speech at his "First Angelus" in the symbolic, beautiful historic small town of Brixen/Bressalone at the Alpes.

- "No Dictature, nor any destructive force can rob us of the most important goods wich are God's gift", stressed Pope Benedict, referring to elementary Human Values, in a last-minute improvisation of his draft speech, before launching also a call to "help those in need", in order to "make the World more human".

- "Jesus is the focus .. In him is Justice and Freedom", said earlier Brixen's Bishop Wilhelm Egger, after prayers including calls to "Truth, Justice and Freedom", read at a Mass of thousands in the town of Archangel Michael, known as defender of christians against the devil.

In what looks as a reference to BioEthics' dillemas of crucial impportance, raised at Strasbourg's unique in the World legally binding International Treaty on BioMedicine and Human Rights (1998, with the "hottest" issues added later through additional protocols, some of whom are imminent), he spoke also of the splendid "Nature" at this Alpen's ressort : This fits well Vatican's earlier anouncement that Pope Benedict's "prayer intentions for August" are mainly to "respect God's design for the world", and "become ever more aware of the great gift of God which Creation represents for us".

- "The most important things in our lives cannot be bought, but are only given as holy gifts : The Sun and its Light, the Air that we breath, the Water, the beauty of Earth, Love, Friendship, Life itself", Pope Benedict added, extending also to Natural Environment, another topical issue after recent Climatic upheavals at several parts of the World.

The "preparation of Pope Benedict's visit to France", which currently heads the EU, at mid-September, among exceptionaly important Council of Europe meetings on Human Rights in Paris and Strasbourg, is part of his work, together with his "book on Jesus", during brief Summer Holidays in Brixen, said his Spokesman, Federico Lombardi.

- The Pope's message is mainly religious, theological. But we are living in a concrete world, and ideas may be taken by readers as references to the actuality. However, it's better to wait to se what the Pope will say in Paris and at Lourdes, added to EuroFora Lombardi, who is also Director of Vatican's Press Office.

Brizen/Bressanone is similar to Strasbourg by succeeding to make a fertile synthesis of Germanic and Latin sources of Europe, like the two local rivers who meet at the historical center of the town, among spectacular ressorts at mountains' hights.

Headquarters for an Historic Religious Seminar, it attracted recently also a Free University's Educational studies. Well-known as a long-time preferred rest place for former cardinal Radzinger and his brother Georg, it includes areas named "St Benedeto" and "St George"...

But Pope Benedict's first speech gave also another symbolic rendez-vous :

- "Next Wednesday, August 6, we shall commemorate the 30st anniversary from the death of late Pope Paul VI", who "concluded Vatican II", and "the Transfiguration of Jesus, mystery of the divine light, which exerced a unique fascination to his soul", he said to some 12.000 applauding People, among the happy few who succeeded to have a rare place for an open-air Mass inside the Domplatz a particularly sunny day at the Alpes.
