*Brussels/EU Summit/Angelo Marcopolo/- Replying to an "Eurofora" Question at a Press Briefing during the EU Summit in Brussels of December 2019, the New Greek Government's Spokesman and Minister of Communication Stelios Petsas, (a well trusted former Director of Office for the New Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis), confirmed that there is also an EU General Interest to slam the illegal and provocative Turkish M.U. with Shaky Libyan Government Officials, (who don't control not even 20% of that Divided Country), that the Libyan Assembly did Not endorse, about infringing on EU Member and Other States' EEZ in the Mediterranean Sea, as recently Growing Indications for Important off-shore Energy Oil/Gas Resources are Extending from Cyprus and Israel with Egypt, towards Greece, etc.

- "Eurofora" had asked Petsas whether he felt that there was a Crystal-clear Awareness and Conscience of EU's General Interest to Protect the Integrity and Safety of its Energy Sources and/or Direct Energy Supply Routes from New Findings at the South-Eastern Mediterranean Sea, including Creta Island' surroundings, particularly as the Northern Sea's Previous Findings have notoriously been Exhausted, and while Turkey's various Added Interference and/or Blackmail Attempts Obviously show that Europeans would Better Focus on their own and Friendly, Turstworthy Countries' Resources and Direct Transport Routes.

- Government Spokesman Petsas replied Positively, noting, in Substance, that New Greek Prime Minister Mitsotakis' 3 main Keypoints of Criticism versus that Controversial Turkish provocative move, due to be Discussed by the EU Summit Later this Evening, i.e. the Fact that it's an Aggresive act against even EU Member Countries' Sovereignity, Contrary to International Law and withOut any Legal effect, which must be clearly Denounced and strongly Faced by the EU, already, indirectly but surely, helped certainly Advance towards the above-mentioned Direction among EU Member Countries, (Comp. Supra).

=> - At any case, moreover, "in each Contact, Multilateral or Bilateral, that we have in this regard, we Highlight these Points, (evoked by "Eurofora" : Comp. Supra), and we hope that they will emerge, in one way or another, also from the Conclusions of this Summit" (of the European Council), key Greek Minister Petsas confirmed in his Reply to our Question.
 

=> Indeed, Later this Evening, the relevant Conclusions of this December 2019 EU Summit in Brussels, "Recalled" and "reConfirmed" "its Previous Conclusions on Turkey, of ...March and ...June", as well as "...October" 2019, "concerning Turkish lllegal Drilling activities in Cyprus' Exclusive Economic Zone", which strongly Slamed such moves and prepared concrete Sanctions, (See, f.ex.: ..., ..., etc).

-  "The Turkey-Libya Memorandum of Understanding on the delimitation of Maritime Jurisdictions in the Mediterranean Sea infringes upon the Sovereign Rights of 3rd States, does Not Comply with the Law of the Sea, and canNot produce Any Legal Consequences for 3rd States", unanimously stressed EU's 28 Member States.

- Therefore, "the European Council unequivocally reAffirms its Solidarity with Greece and Cyprus, regarding these actions by Turkey", this BRX EU Summit underlined Firmly.


A shaky makeshift Government in besieged Tripoli claims to rule on huge Libya, whose territory is, however, held for around 80% by General Haftar's "National Libyan Army", as well as the Majority in the Country's Senate (Assembly of Nationalities).


Various  Smugglers, Human Traffiquers (including Ransomers of Migrants, etc), and/or relevant shady NGOs are reportedly Headquarted around Tripoli, added to several Islamist Gangs, (an ISIS' Compound included), while such problems are reportedly absent at the Other parts of the Country. Desperate after another recent call of General Haftar to seize the Capital, Tripoli's Minority Rulers were offered a Military Intervention by Turkey, which has already been found in breach of Arms Embargo by the UN, according to the "Guardian".

*Paris/ACM/12 October 2008/-

When Europeans really feel a vital need to urgently launch common replies to challenging World Crisis, as the present Financial turmoil of Global Markets, they forge new decision-making tools and new dynamics :

The 1st in History EuroZone Heads of State and Government Summit, organized in Paris at the invitation of French President, and current EU chair, Nicolas Sarkozy, with the participation of 15 national leaders and EU institutions' chairmen, partly enlarged to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, after a highly symbolic duo with German Chancelor Angie Merkel, at General De Gaulle's birth-village, 50 Years after he welcomed there former German chancellor Adenauer (1958-2008), may have not one, but two results :

- The first, and more urgent, was to launch an "ambitious", "coherent", and "efficient" common European movement, able to stimulate "solutions" to the World Economic Crisis, as Sarkozy anounced from the outset : State Garantees (to new Bank debts up to 5 years), fresh Capital input (f.ex. by buying shares), support to distressed banks, (while also restructuring them), incite the European Central Bank to facilitate commerial bills europe-wide, etc.

"Acting swiftly", from tomorrow, national measures will quantify all these targets, with coordinated actions from all EuroZone's Governments : France, Germany, Italy and others, decided to anounce, at the same time, such concrete measures, according to agreements that we have already made all together, revealed Sarkozy at the final Press Conference, flanked by EuroZone's chairmen : EuroGroup's Jean-Claude Juncker, and Central European Bank's Jean-Claude Truchet, as well as EU Commission's Jose Baroso, to solemnly stress the will to find common European solutions.

- "United and Determined, all EuroZone's Countries will act to prove that Citizens can Trust" the Economy, Sarkozy concluded. If we attract also all EU's 27 countries, Wednesday in Brussels, then we can coordinate action with our American Friends at a Global level, he anounced.

- "With this new Toolbox, we do not want to serve Bankers, but to work for Europe and its Citizens' interests", added Juncker.

- "For the moment, we want to act urgently to regulate the Crisis. But the time will come when those responsible for this, will have to account for their actions. Yes to real Capitalism, No to Speculators. Those who abused, will face sanctions, Sarkozy warned.


Need stimulates activities which create new organs, say biologists, and Gordon Brown, compatriot of Spencer, the famous bio-Historian, would certainly not deny that, after his surprise visit to EuroZone's Summit in Paris, which attracted him one hour more than scheduled...

Decisions include also the creation of a Crisis-management European mechanism, which "requires constant Monitoring", as well as strengthening Economic policy cooperation between EuroZone's countries.

Sarkozy will be judged by History not just by the immediate Economic results, expected at the end of this week's decision-making proces at National and EU level, but also by the more far-reaching consequences at the aftermath of this Historic EuroZone 1st Summit : Will it succeed to become a precursor forging a New era in European institution's revitalization ?

Significantly, the French President sat, during discussions, between German Chancelor Merkel, and British Prime Minister Brown, facing the chairmen of EuroGroup, Juncker, ECB : Truchet, and EU Commission, Baroso, with Prime Ministers of Spain, Zapatero (a hot partisan of EuroZone's Summit) at his right side, and Italy's Berlusconi, at his left, surrounded by Austrian, Belgian, Cyprus', Finland's, Greece's, and Ireland's leaders, as well as Slovakia's, Slovenia's, Portugal's, Netherlands', Malta's and Luxembourg's leaders.

Meanwhile, those who tabled for a rift between French and German positions were faced with a smiling Merkel at De Gaulle-Adenauer's meeting place, a sunny Saturday morning, and a particularly active-looking Merkel inside the French Presidential Palace at Elysee's gardens on Sunday, (as happy few photographers discovered)..

- "De Gaulle's hilltop, at Colombey-les-2-Eglises, gave an astonishing overview to a huge landscape, entirely surrounded by splendid Nature, as far as eyes could see", said to EuroFora an obviously charmed German Journalist.

She was describing Saturday's inauguration of a High-Tech Memorial close to the Historic Giant Double Lorraine's Cross, built by famous Novelist Andre Malraux, to perpetuate the Memory of his famous call for "Resistance" to NAZI, and his vision for the creation of New Institutions and Franco-German reconciliation, to foster Europe's role in the World, also for the Future.
