*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- During the incoming German Presidency of EUROCORPS for 2 Years (9/2017 - 8/2019), the use of Drones, announced Earlier this week by the New French Defense Minister Florence Parly, is Not yet Scheduled, but Neither Excluded, replied, in substance, to an "Eurofora" Question that European Army's Press Spokesman, Lieutenant-Colonel Kirchenbauer.


He spoke shortly after a Change of Command, from the out-going Spanish Lieutenant-General Alfredo Ramirez to the in-coming German Lieutenant-General Jürgen Weigt, Earlier this Morning, but before the forthcoming German Election of September 24.

Meanwhile, Parly, concluding French Army's Summer 2017 meetings, had Announced that France intends to Start using Drones Both for Surveillance and for Armed Operations, but always under Human and not Robotic control for the respect of Rules of Engagement.


The move is due to Start, at Short Term, by using USA-Bought "REAPERS" Military Drones, (particularly for Wide Areas such as around Sahara, etc), but is due to unfold, Later-on, with the Creation of European Drones, as she said a few Months after a Franco-German Inter-Governemental Summit in Paris, chaired by President Macron and Chancellor Merkel, who Highighted various Decisions and prospects also on Joint Projects for New Defence Equipments.

The New EUROCORPS' Commander, General Weigt, took over his duties at a ceremony symbolically held in EU Parliament's Headquarters in Strasbourg, as a Senior Officer had Warned "Eurofora" during a Press Conference by Top MEP Arnauld Danjean, EU's Rapporteur on Security /Defence Policy, and Experienced former President of EU Parliament's relevant Committee, now Heading its Delegation for NATO, (who had, then, Replied to other Topical Questions raised by "Eurofora" : Comp. http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/topmepdanjeanonsecuritydefenseandbrexit.html).

EU Parlament has repeatedly and Strongly supported EUROCORPS' prospects at the Core of EU's Defence Policy, which is notoriously due to be Boosted Nowadays soon, particularly after the recent developments about UK's "BREXIT" and in accordance with the Strategic Decisions just taken by the Latest EU Heads of State/Government Summit on June 2017 in Brussels, (Comp. "Eurofora"s NewsReport from the spot).


EUROCORPS, Headquartered in Strasbourg, has as "Framework" Nations France, Germany, Spain, Belgium and Luxembourg, but also Poland as a New, evolving Member, while Many Other EU Countries have posted "Liaison Officers" here, and more are expected to join, sooner or later, in one way or another. It has also been used for Cooperation with NATO, and Headed Operations in Kosovo and Afghanistan (International Missions), Mali and Central Africa (EU Missions), etc. More Recently, it has started to Lead also EU's Battle Group, as on 2016.

As a Multi-National but also Multi-Modal Force, destinated to Lead the Staff of Thousands of Soldiers from several Countries, EUROCORPS has been recently trained to Monitor Both Land, Sea and Air Military Operations in an organized whole. Therefore, it appears Logical to expect that, sooner of later, it would also Include the New Technologies of Drones inside its overall Activities' Know-how.


- However, at least as things stand, "Nothing is Scheduled" yet for Drones, Replied EUROCORPS' Press Spokesman, L-C. Kirchenbauer to a relavant Question by "Eurofora".


- But this goes only "For the Moment", he specified, i.e. withOut Excluding a priori eventual developments, in this direction, Later-on during the Incoming 24-Months-Long Period of the German rotating Presidency.


- Simply, "we canNot Speculate" about that Today, EUROCORPS' Press Spokesman carefully explained.


  - "Eurofora"s Co-Founder has often covered "EUROCORPS"' main developments, already from its Creation, back on 1993, until now, on 2017, Publishing initially at "TCWeekly" and afterwards on "Eurofora", (Comp. various relevant Articles/Interviews searchable in this Newsite, etc).

Europe brings Development dynamics at Global Crisis' Summit debates

eudevdays_400



    Thanks also to EU Parliament Plenary's Strasbourg gathering, EU, during the French EU Presidency, managed to integrate the Development issues at Top Debates on the World Summit against the Economic Crisis  :

    For the 1st time, it's at the same moment with the Wahington G-20 Summit that EU Commissioner Louis Michel co-organizes here with the French EU Presidency parallel mega-events for the "European Development Days", starting from this Week-End and concluding at the eve of a landmark debate in EU Parliament, next Tuesday, on the outcome and follow-up of the Wash.DC Summit.

    EU and its Member Countries are the biggest donor for UNO's Millenium Development goals, with 56%, but the 27 are currently struggling to develop a collective leadership in Economic and social matters, that the 15 of EuroGroup (together with the UK and other countries interested to be usefully associated) are starting to spearhead, after the initial success of the 1st EuroZone Heads of State and Government Summit, of October 12 in Paris, according to a New Repport by MEPs Pervench Beres and Werner Langen on the 10 Years of EuroZone (1999-2009) debated Monday and voted on Tuesday.

    EU, CoE and World personalities will interact here with Heads of State or Government from Tanzania (African Union chair), Burkina Faso (CEDEAO + UEMOA chair), Zimbabwe (MDC chair), Madagascar, Haiti, Mali, Benin, etc, and some 3000 participants from the Economy, Civil Society, Media, Experts, etc, while the City of Strasbourg adds various related Citizen-events.

    Opened by French Secretary of State Alain Joyandet on November 15, and followed by a video-contact with EU Commission President Jose Baroso on the Washington Summit Sunday, the EDD are concluded by Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner on Monday, while their main concerns cannot be ignored in the Debate that EU Parliament will hold on Tuesday, (followed by a Resolution on Wednesday), jointly on the G-20 Washington Summit and on EU Commission's work program for 2009.

    A practical opportunity for EU to reflect where it's better to spend EU Citizens' money...

    The move is prolonged in several Paris' meetings of EU chair, French President Nicolas Sarkozy with African Heads of State leading regional Organizations, as from Tanzania (A.U. Chair), Burkina Faso (chair of Economic African organizations), Togo, etc, (in parallel with a Ministerial EU - African Union conference in Ethiopia, followed by a visit to Tchad), logically concluded by a meeting with Robert Zoellic President of the World Bank.

    Many have already warned that an eventual aggravation of Development's Gap accross the World might become much more dangerous to Global Economy, Security, Values and Quality of Life, than Global Warming and/or other, even more serious challenges...

    Will they find an innovative and voluntarist way to really deal with the Development Gap, which might also contribute to help face the Economic Crisis ?

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 ?
