*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.

    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.

    - In only 3 other Member Countries we feel some "hesitations" : Poland, Czech Republic and Cyprus", said, meanwhile, EU Chairman-in-office, Slovenian Foreign Minister, Dr. Dimitri Ruppel, speaking to EU Parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee in Strasbourg, However, "I didn't hear any explicit refusal", he carefully added.

    Rupel's fears were later bellied in Cyprus' case, where a wide majority of political parties confirmed their support to the EU Treaty, but fears were confirmed in Poland's case, while Czechs said they waited for their Constitutional Court to pronounce itself.

    A paradox is that the Polish President Lech Kaczynski, who reportedly expressed concerns about Lisbon Treaty, had personally signed himself its blueprint, while, on the contrary, Cyprus' new President, Christofias, despite its own party's opposal, declared that he'll respect the signature of his precedessor, former President Tassos Papadopoulos, in favor of EU Treaty.

    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...


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 ?
