*Brussels/EU Summit/Angelo Marcopolo/- The Incoming EU President for the Period of July-December 2016, Prime Minister of Slovakia, Robert Fico, (an Atypical Socialist, known for his Strong and Popular Views), Replying to an "Eurofora" Question, during a Press Conference in Brussels at the Conclusion of the June 2016 EU Heads of States/Governments' Summit, Didn't Exclude, in Fact, that either BREXIT itself, and/or Other Similarly Negative Reactions also by Various Other EU Member States, Could be Prevented IF the EU Changed its current Migration Policy, in order to Adopt a New and More Adequate one, Closer to EU Citizens' wishes. Otherwise, there might even be More Reactions, also by "Many" Other EU Member States, he Warned.


------------------------------------


    - "Eurofora" asked Prime Minister Fico Whether he Believed that If the Policies that he had Advised, as well as several Other Heads of State/Government, on the Migration Crisis, Christian Roots of Europe and Social Cohesion, etc., Perhaps, this Might have Contributed to Help Prevent the BREXIT Outcome on the Recent British Referendum, given that such Issues were, precisely Included among the matters notoriously Discuessed by the British People, and/or, Moreover, Help Prevent any eventually Similar Reaction, mutatis- mutandis,s by any other among EU's remaining 27 Member States in the foreseable Future.


    - "I don"t want to Speculate", at least as far as the British Referendum is concerned, started to Reply Fico to "Eurofora"'s Question, as a matter of General Principles, as far as the Past is concerned.


    - "But", one thing is Sure : "Really, My Position is that We (EU) Have to Change our Migration Policy !", the Incoming EU President stressed.


    - Because, "If Not",(i.e. if it doesN't Change, then), "I thing that it's Many (EU) Countries and Governments that are Going to Have Problems", he Warned.


    - "That's why my Understanding is that we (EU) can't continue the Current Migration Policy", Prime Minister Fico concluded.


    => "So, From this Situation,, You can deduce an Answer to your Question", he observeds, as far as "Eurofora"s above mentioned Query is concerned, (Comp. Supra).


---------------------------


+ Meanwhile, EU Heads of State/Government Summitsl, had placed Migration Policy at the Forefront of its this Summit's initial Agenda, particularly as far as the Controversial and UnPopular EU - Turkey Migration Deal is concerned.


But UK's BREXIT Developments Pushed that to the BackGround : More than Half of this Summit was Consecrated to BREXIT (the 2nd Day and the Working Diner of the 1st), leaving Only 3 or so Hours during the 1st Day, which were Largely Consumed by at least 3 Different Reports from NATO SG, EU's High Representative on External Relations, Federica Mogerini, (who presented her Draft "Strategy for EU Foreign and Security Policy"), and CEBanks' President Mario Dragi.


In consequence, 28 Democraticaly Elected by the Peuple's Direct Vote, Heads of State/Government hadn't been left but .... Less than Half an Hour, in order to Discuss Recent Developments on EU Migration Policy, All Together,  i.e. Present Facts, Exchange Views, and Discuss Possible Solutions in such a Delicate and Complicated Issue,; in Less than 1 Minute Each  !


That's why EU Council President Donald Tusk had already been Obliged to "Propose", in his "Invitation Letter" to the 28 EU Members, to Simply .... "Adopt" the Draft "Conclusions", i.e. omething "which Should be Possible, given the good Preparatory Work concluded" by Technocrats, even Before Heads of State/Government Asrrive in Brussels, in other words : Obviously, Without any High Political Level real Debate...

Thus, a relevant but clear Hasty Question by "Eurofora", Earlier Today, to the Experienced, New EU Commission's President, Jean-Claude Juncker, former Long-Time Prime Minister of Luxelmbourg and €uroGroup's Chairman, while he passed by, Together with EU Council's President, Donald Tusk, with a Large Smile, and Saluting us, Exceptionaly, remained without any Explicit Response, Contrary to the Usual Habit and Capacity of Juncker to Gives as various Sharp, Short, Fast and Smart Replies to various Other "Thorny" Questions, (Comp, among others, f.ex. : .....)


----------------------


However, already, a Recent Development inside Top EU Institutions was that those "Conclusions" have, for the 1st Time, Started to Acknowledge the Fact (First Denounced by "Eurofora"s relevant Critical Publication of: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/unpopulareuvisafreefor80millionsturksuseless.html), that Turkey's Controversial and UnPopular "Deal" with the EU had Not even Started to Operate when the Curb of Mass Arrivals through Turkey and via Greece, had Already been Pushed to Fall Down in Dramatic Proportions, leaving only a Comparatively Minor Part, Because of Previous European ReActions and various Measures on the  Balkan Routes :

Mainly the "Full Application of the Schengen Borders' Code", and "the Closure" of Balkan Route's Borders,  Already as Early as Since Mid-February and Early March 2016, as an Eloquent, June  2016s EU Graphic clearly shows, (Comp. Photo)..

    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...

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 ?
