*Salzburg/EU Summit/Angelo Marcopolo/- In a Surprize-move, New EU President-in-office, Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, in Addition to More Measures destinated to Strengthen EU's External Borders' Monitoring, as well as Financial Support to 3rd African and other Neighbouring 3rd Countries' Economies, (etc), pointed, in particular, to a kind of Model Role reportedly played by Egypt into acting in order for Ships full of Irregular Mass Migrants, do Not Reach Europe, Neither get Lost somewhere in the Mediterranean Sea, but Return Safely Back to Africa.

 

Significantly, Kurz anounced that during his Joint Press Conference, on the Conclusions of the EU Heads of State/Government's Summit in Salzburg, Together with EU Council's President Donald Tusk and EU Commission's President Jean-Claude Juncker, (them too Former Prime Ministers of Poland and Luxembourg, respectively), due to develop further the next moves at EU Leaders' Agenda on Mass Migration, BREXIT, etc.

 -----------------------

Even if Egypt is Not Willing to Host Collective "Centers" for such People on its national Territory, on the Contrary, it would be Ready to Offer that Alternative Solution to the recent and manifold Challenge of Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants, since that 2015/2016 Big, sudden "Tsunami" of more than +1,5 Millions People massively Intruding in Europe through Turkey, whose manifold repercussions notoriously were at the Core of the present Salzburg's EU Summit, (Comp., f.ex. : .., etc).


Currently, Egypt is the Only Mediterranean Country from which Not even 1 such Ship, usually Exploited by Traffickers and Smugglers, did Not Reach Europe recently, and it has even Brought Back Home such Smugglers' Ships, while also Preventing eventual Tragedies, Kurz told in substance here Journalists, including Eurofora.

In order to Support and Develop such Activities, a special EU - Egypt Summit is currently Scheduled for November 2018, Sebastian Kurz announced.

(UPDATE: Immediately after Salzburg's Press Conference with Kurz's statements, the Austrian Press followed that EU - Egypt cooperation lead against Mass Irregular Migration)

______________________


But, in Parallel, EU Intends to Boost Similar a.o. Actions also by Many Other South-Mediterranean Countries, inter alia, also in the Framework of various, already existing, as well as new EU - Africa Cooperation Programs. (Comp., among others, also the EU+CoE Programme "SUD" etc., which can include a Fight against Human Trafficking, as well as adequate Migration Policies, etc., f.ex. at: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/eucoesouthmediterraneanprogram.html, etc).



Egypt has recently developed also frequent Top Level, Key Strategic Regional Summits, Together with EU Member States Cyprus and Greece, concerning both the Fight against Terrorism, and the Use and Transports of New Natural Energy findings at the South-Eastern Mediterranean, (parallel, and in Addition also with those recently Evolving, Israel-Cyprus-Greece, EU-sponsored Plans for Direct Energy Transports to EU's core Industrial Regions.


The Latest such Egypt-Greece-Cyprus Regional Summit has just taken place a few Days ago,
(See also : ...), just before this Salzburg EU Summit on Mass Migration and related BREXIT issues, whose long-term repercussions may prove to be much more important than expected...

Egypt-model related Developments about Mass/Irregular Migration, (Comp. Supra), were practically Shadowed by parallel, last-minute developments on BREXIT : This, inter alia, f.ex. provoked 2 Changes in the Press Briefings' Timetable : At First by pulling their scheduled Start 1 Hour Earlier, while Afterwards, it went back to its initially foreseen Time, 1 Hour Later. But also by Focusing the bilateral Discussions among Journalists, Diplomats and/or Politicians rather on BREXIT, at the Sidelines of Salzburg's Summit, (including, f.ex., "Eurofora" co-Founder's encounter with a British Diplomat, and even an INTW that we were asked to give to an ...Arab TV Channel, astonishingly more interested on BREXIT than on Mass Migration, etc).

But Both these Events were notoriously Influenced by the Same 2015/2016 initiated exceptional Mass Incidents, triggered through Turkey's Borders to EU Members Greece and Bulgaria, (etc).

  Ten Years of ECHR : 1998 - 2008 show need of Revival in 2009-2010 coinciding with 2009 EU Election
   

A threefold, coordinated move by new Top French Political actors in the 2009 EU Parliament Elections, expressed in Strasbourg a will to boost Europe's Political dimension close to Citizens' concerns, going from protection of Economy to defence of Human Rights.    

The move met an exceptional ECHR's call for a "revival" of Human Rights' protection mechanism', in a Mega-Conference, early 2010.   

Obviously focusing on June 2009 Elections to EU Parliament, it involved from the outset the recently nominated "dual" Head of French Governing Party (UMP)  Michel BARNIER and Rachida DATI :

imag0282_400

     - "As President Sarkozy has clearly said, we (France) are in favor of a Strong, Sovereign and Independent, Political Europe, which protects its Citizens, and not for a large Super-Market, nor for a Europe under influence",

    "This goes for everything, including Energy", added to "EuroFora" the experienced former EU Commissioner, Minister of Foreign affairs, currently of Agriculture and Sarkozy's new pick as Leader of the Governing party UMP to EU 2009 Election, Michel BARNIER                                              .                             

  - Human Rights are important because they are at the Heart of the Political Europe that we aspire for : I.e. a Europe able to act and protect its Citizens, stressed also the New French Minister for European affairs, Bruno LE MAIRE, while meeting Strasbourg's Journalists at his first visit to the CoE.   

imag0313_400_01 

This is one of the main interests for CoE, which is also a natural place for cooperation between EU countries and Russia or Turkey, which was recently helpful at the Middle East crisis, he added.

The move gained momentum with French Minister of Justice, Rachida Dati's main observations at ECHR's 5Oth Anniversary :   

- "While we are seeking Europe's Borders and Identity, you (ECHR) remind us also of its Values", Human Rights, Dati noted.   

Citizens seek more and more often ECHR's help, and the tempo accelerates, Europa awaits a symbol, while national legal orders are not freezed   

And she expressed "support" to ECHR President Jean-Paul Costa's call to satisfy the vital need to revigorate the PanEuropean Court by deciding big changes at a High-Level Conference open to a large audience, a kind of "Etats Generaux" of Human Rights, at the beginning of 2010.

It's not so much the recently growing number of applications for Russia or Ukraine etc, which seems to be Costa's main concern : In fact, the cases declared "admissible" are much fewer...    

But rather the persistent violations of Human Rights, sometimes very grave (ie. murders, torture, abritrary deprivation of liberty, oppression of freedom of speech, destructions of homes/properties, etc), despite numerous, repeated condemnations by ECHR. So that CoE's Ministers, due to "supervise execution" of ECHR's judgements, are overloaded.   

F.ex. most Media noted that Turkey still remains, even in 2008, the 1st among 47 CoE member States in the number of condemnations by ECHR :  257, compared to 233 for Russia, with a population more than the double..    

The problem is that it's not the 1st time at all : During all the last Decade 1998-2008, Turkey was condemned by ECHR much more than any other State, and for particularly grave violations :   

- 1.652 condemnations, compared to 605 for Russia, 548 for Poland, 494 for France, 476 for Ukraine, etc.   

Italy's second place with 1.394 condemnations is a misleading false appearance : In fact, most of them (999) concern mere "procedural delays" in national courts. Same for France.   

On the contrary, Turkey was condemned 180 times for Killings, 192 times for Torture or Inhuman/Degrading treatments, 340 times for arbitrary deprivation of Liberty, 528 times for "Unfair trial", and 169 times for oppression of Freedom of speech, (etc). And the latest, 2008 numbers, indicate no change in this trend, (See supra).   

The current Spanish CoE Presidency (November 2008 - May 2009) has made of the implementation of ECHR's judgements its 1st Priority.   

ECHR's President, Jean-Paul Costa, stressed in its 2009 Annual Press Conference, CoE Member States' obligation to implement the judgements, according to Article 46 of the European Convention on Human Rights.   

Moreover, if CoE's Committee of Ministers delays to ensure implementation, then, the repetition of violations in similar cases provokes a multiplication of complaints tabled to the Court, which overload the mecanism for the protection of Human Rights, denounced Costa.          

A series of Debates on "the situation of Human Rights in Europe", focusing on the "need to fight against Impunity" of perpetrators of grave crimes, is  currently prepared by CoE's Parliamentary Assembly for the session of June 2009.  

The final Timing comes shortly AFTER the EU Elections, but the main Reports should have been adopted before.

Meanwhile, French President Sarkozy and German Chancelor Merkel's recent call "for a Political Europe" in 2009 EU Elections (See earlier "correspondence from Paris, Elysee Palace), seems more and more endorsed also by other EU Countries' Top MEPs :

Thus, f.ex., EU Parliament's 1st vice-President, Greek MEP Mrs Rodi KRATSA, speaking to "EuroFora", agreed that 2009 EU Election would be a "naturally good" opportunity to debate what really interests EU Citizens : "The Future of a Political Europe, able to face the Economic Crisis, with a Culture and identity which attracts the People"
