*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- Experienced former EU Commissioner and currently EU Parliament's vice-President, Italian ChristianDemocrat/EPP long-time MEP, Antonio Tajani, speaking Today to "Eurofora", stressed that the potential role of core Humanistic Values in the Fight against ISIL-like Deadly and Destructive Terrorism, including through Inter-Religious Dialogue between Christians, Muslims, Jews, Budhists, a.o. confessions, is Crucial :


 - "I really Believe that. It's very Important !", vice President Tajani clearly underlined, inter alia, Replying to a relevant "Eurofora" Question this Evening in Strasbourg, on the sidelines of EU Parliament's October II Plenary Session here.

Tajani is Officialy in charge, since 2014, also of Inter-Religious Dialogue, as far as EU Parliament's policies are concerned, including for the Fight against Radicalisation provoked by propaganda and/or criminal acts recently inspired particularly by ISIL's Deadly Terrorists, atrocious BeHeaders even of Innocent Civilian People.
    
- In this Regard, he pointed at the Fact that, Nowadays, particularfly after the recent Terrorist Attacks  in several European Countries and even inside the US, there is "an Urgent Need for Fraternity", but "a Major Question is Which Pathway to follow for that ?" So that, instead of Dividing, we should Unite People in the "absolute Imperative" for an Efficient Fight against provoked Radicalisation.


 => Therefore, Tajani personaly confirmed and pointed today at a "Message" to try to Advance Further than the usual forms of Dialogue between Religions, which, for the EU, should be "part of the Solution", since, in principle, they all Defend the "Sacred Value of Human Life", as well as "Human Dignity", particularly by aiming to "Deepen" this towards the "Possible" Emergence of "a New Humanism".

EU Parliament's competent vice-President was reacting personaly Today to a reference made by "Eurofora" at a Letter with such mentions, earlier transmitted by his Office to a recent Collective Meeting on "Inter-Religious Dialogue and Fight against Radicalisation", organized  by Strasbourg's relevant Think-Tank Association "DECERE", (presented by an Experienced former Long-Time EU Parliament's Protocol Director , Francois Bernagel), in cooperation with Strasbourg area's "Council of Churches", headed by the Christian Catholic ArchBishop Mgr. Grallet, Together with other Religious Leaders, etc., Earlier this Month, at the prestigious "ENA" Higher School of France's Public Administration's Senior Officials, where "Eurofora" had been invited.

Obviously, such an Idea, could also Alleviate Fears of some about alleged attempts to Impose a so-called rampant "Islamisation", since the main Aim would be, Not to let an Ideology Spread itself under Brutal Threats, to the Expense of Others, but, the Contrary, to strive to Build something in Common to all Religions and/or Free Thinkers, that would participate to such a joint endeavour.


Moreover, nowadays, both the concrete, astonishing example of even ...Libanese Hezbolah and Iranian Shiites Volunteers, joining Syrian President Bashar Assad, (a Muslim Politician in the Middle-Eastern Country which still Hosts, comparatively, the Greatest Percentage of Christians), in a Fight against Al Quaida offsprings such as ISIL or Al Nusra and other such Islamist Extremist, Deadly Armed Gangs, as well as Iraqi Government's mainly largely Shiite Armed Forces, Both aided, (as well as American and/or Russian Forces), in that purpose, also by Kurdish Fighters in Syria and in Iraq, added to Various Muslim People fallen Victims of indiscriminate ISIL Terrorist Attacks from Yemen, Iraq and Syria or Turkey, until even inside Europe itself, recently, Killed side to side with a Majority of Christian, Jewish and/or other People independently of their various Beliefs, clearly indicates that the Real Issue is, in Fact, quite Different and much Wider, than those who Hide themselves Behind such atrociously InHuman, Barbaric Islamic Terrorists cowardly aggressing even innocent and defenseless Civilians (Women, Children and Elders included), would pretend...

Swedish Foreign Minister, Carl Bildt, speaking  to "EuroFora", denied rumors on Turkey's attempts to avoid an EU check of its obligations on Cyprus on December 2009 by blackmailing Nicosia to either accept any deal with intransigeant Turkish claims contrary to EU values on the island's political issue, or face threats against the territorial integriy of the EU island, semi-occupied by Ankara's army.

On the contrary, the incoming EU President-in-office, speaking exclusively to "EuroFora", promissed that he will act for EU Council's decisions on December 2009 assessment of Turkey's commitments on Cyprus to be kept.


    Bildt was asked to react to Cyprus' President Christofias' denunciation, earlier this week, that some want to exert "pressure" on Cyprus in order for Turkey to escape from its obligations.

    Avoiding to mention any precise Deadline, Bildt, however, warned about "Consequences" in case of "failure" to reunite Cyprus, but without saying whose responsibility an eventual deadlock might be.  

 Asked by "EuroFora" if there is a risk for "Turkey's commitments to "be forgotten or downgraded", "despite crystal-clear EU Council decisions and EU Parliament's latest Resolution on the assessment to make at the end of this year on Turkey's obligations", according to rumours that, instead of pressing Turkey, on the contrary, there might be "pressure on Cyprus", even "blackmail", as Media reported and President Christofias denounced this week, Bildt denied :

- "No ! ", he clearly replied.


- On the contrary, invited by "EuroFora", to "reassure that the Swedish EU Presidency (7-12/2009) will keep a fair stance, based on principles",  Bildt promised that "we (Swedish EU Presidency) will be very clear on all of the decisions taken by the (EU) Council".

He added, however, that "we have very numerous decisions that have been taken" by EU Council, as if he warned, also, on something else.

- "'I am not aware of any sort of statements coming out today''", Bildt started to say, on our reference to Cyprus' President Christofias" denunciation of Turkish lobby's manoeuvers this week, replying earlier to 'another"EuroFora"'s question during a Press Conference at EU Parliament in Strasbourg.


 - '"I know the issues that you' are concerned with'", he added, remembering  the statements he gave us when Sweden was chairing the PanEuropean CoE on 2008.

- "But, obviously, .. I think that Cyprus' Peace negotiations are extremenly important".

- And "'I think that we are at a unique moment in History, in the sens that both (Cyprus') President Christofias and Mr. Talat (the Turkish Cypriot leader), are personally convinced of the need to overcome the division".

 - "It's 20 Years since the fall of Berlin Wal, but we still have a Capital in Europe (Nicosia) that's divided". ,

- 'I don't that we should loose any time in overcoming that"..

 - ''We should be aware of the fact that success will bring great benefits, but failure, will also have major consequences. There will not be Status Quo' " It's a question of seeking a solution, or entering another situation, which is somewhat difficult to see exactly how that could evolve", he warned.

- "That being said, this is a negotiation for Cyprus itself", Bildt admitted.

 - ''We (EU) can support, the (EU) Commission primarily, be technically helpful, and then, of course, there is a specific role for the UN, when it comes to the Cyprus' situation".  

- "At least so far. It might not be for ever'. Certainly not for ever, but for this period of time", Bildt added, skiping now any reference to concrete threats on UNO's Peace keeping force in face of more than 40.000 Ankara's soldiers, contrary to some Press claims, (See previous NewsReports).


     Replying to another "EuroFora"'s Question,  if anyone might attempt to "impose a Deadline for the conclusion" of Cyprus' Talks on December 2009, Bildt avoided to speak of any precise Time-frame, and indirectly evoked the fact that  35 Years of Turkish Invasion/Occupation obviously durated too long :

'- "If I was from Cyprus, I would say that the Deadline was Yesterday ! '",
Bildt concluded.

Cyprus' Government Spokesman, Stephanou, reportedly pointed out that "a settlement is possible on December if Turkey changes its stance", accepting a solution for the reunification of the island based on UNO resolutiona and EU principles.

Earlier, EU Chair, Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeld, highlighted an "historic opportunity" to "re-Unite" Cyprus according to EU's "basic Values"' (i.e. Human Rights) and 'Rules'", in a last-minute change of his draft speech to EU Parliament in Strasbourg.

    The initial Draft spoke only about "healing" the island.

    Significantly, Reinfeldt linked Cyprus' reunification with Turkey's obligations to respect EU's "Values" and "follow" EU's "common Rules" :

    - What is "called Membership Negotiations" should lead, "at- the end of the day", into "sharing a set of common Basic Values (i.e. Human Rights, Democracy, etc), and following common Rules", stressed Reinfeld from the outset.
    
    - "This is something that those on the Outside (of the EU), are now  contemplating", up "to Ankara", for "a solution" on "Cyprus", observed the EU Chairman, immediately afterwards..  

    - "Both sides of Cyprus have been granted a historic opportunity to together reach an agreement on a solution to re-Unite the island, that has been divided for far too long", said Reinfeldt, modifying his draft text.


-  "The Swedish Presidency will act ...in accordance with Commitments EU has made, on the basis of Criteria that apply", "as a Honest Broker", he promised.    

- "To those on the inside (of the EU), allowing the membership process to become an opportunity to solve protracted disputes, can be tempting", he added.


    "In such cases, we must find solutions that can benefit both sides, and open up a way forward. Otherwise, it would jeopardize the progress we have made towards EU integration", Reinfeldt said.
