*Brussels/EPP Summit/Angelo Marcopolo/- Even After a now possible BREXIT, however, the UK would still be "in Europe", stressed Today the Frontrunner Main Opposition Party' Head in Greece, Kyiakos Mitsotakis, President of the "New Democracy" Party, speaking to the Press, including "Eurofora".


Already, certain other European Countries as Norway and Switzerland, Lictenstein, etc., are Not yet EU Members, but have Special Agreements with the EU, f.ex. in the framework of the "European Economic Area", on  "Shenghen", even on Scientific and Technological Research (f.ex. from Switzerland), and, in the particular case of the UK, (EU Member since 1973), normaly EU Links should be even much Stronger, observers noted, agreeing with Mitsotakis' Press Spokeswoman.


Mitsotakis, whose Party is Recently Accredited with an evolving Strong 1st Place in People's preferences by All Polls, spoke just after the conclusion of an Important ChristianDemocrat/EPP Summit in Brussels, with the participation f.ex., of German Chancelor Angie Merkel, the EU's "BREXIT" Negociator Michel Barnier, EU Commission's President Jean-Claude Juncker, and EU Council's President Donald Tusk, EU Parliament's President Antionio Tajani, and other Political Leaders, invited by experienced EPP's Head Joseph Daul, (a former Long-Time MEP from Strasbourg, and f. Chairman of EPP's Group of MEPs in EU Parliament).

Since the Move took place Ahead of EU's Heads of States/Governments' Summit, later Today, here in Brussels, dedicated mainly to "BREXIT", Kyriakos Mitsotakis also Focused on the Main Conditions of particular Interest of that to Greece :

- I.e., the respect of UK's Financial Obligations to the EU, the Protection of EU Citizens' Rights (more than 70.000 Greeks currently Living in the UK), and the Future state of relevant EU's External Borders, f.ex. at the North of Ireland, etc.


At a Different area, UK notoriously keeps 2 British Military Bases in EU Member Cyprus, which is also Member of the British Commonwealth, as well as the current EU Chair, Malta.

An appeal to make the "World more Human", by defending basic Human Values, helping those in need, and paying hommage to Nature, figured high in Pope Benedict's long-awaited speech at his "First Angelus" in the symbolic, beautiful historic small town of Brixen/Bressalone at the Alpes.


- "No Dictature, nor any destructive force can rob us of the most important goods wich are God's gift", stressed Pope Benedict, referring to elementary Human Values, in a last-minute improvisation of his draft speech, before launching also a call to "help those in need", in order to "make the World more human".

- "Jesus is the focus .. In him is Justice and Freedom", said earlier Brixen's Bishop Wilhelm Egger, after prayers including calls to "Truth, Justice and Freedom", read at a Mass of thousands in the town of Archangel Michael, known as defender of christians against the devil.


In what looks as a reference to BioEthics' dillemas of crucial impportance, raised at Strasbourg's unique in the World legally binding International Treaty on BioMedicine and Human Rights (1998, with the "hottest" issues added later through additional protocols, some of whom are imminent), he spoke also of the splendid "Nature" at this Alpen's ressort : This fits well Vatican's earlier anouncement that Pope Benedict's "prayer intentions for August" are mainly to "respect God's design for the world", and "become ever more aware of the great gift of God which Creation represents for us".

- "The most important things in our lives cannot be bought, but are only given as holy gifts : The Sun and its Light, the Air that we breath, the Water, the beauty of Earth, Love, Friendship, Life itself", Pope Benedict added, extending also to Natural Environment, another topical issue after recent Climatic upheavals at several parts of the World.



The "preparation of Pope Benedict's visit to France", which currently heads the EU, at mid-September, among exceptionaly important Council of Europe meetings on Human Rights in Paris and Strasbourg, is part of his work, together with his "book on Jesus", during brief Summer Holidays in Brixen, said his Spokesman, Federico Lombardi.

- The Pope's message is mainly religious, theological. But we are living in a concrete world, and ideas may be taken by readers as references to the actuality. However, it's better to wait to se what the Pope will say in Paris and at Lourdes, added to EuroFora Lombardi, who is also Director of Vatican's Press Office.


Brizen/Bressanone is similar to Strasbourg by succeeding to make a fertile synthesis of Germanic and Latin sources of Europe, like the two local rivers who meet at the historical center of the town, among spectacular ressorts at mountains' hights.

Headquarters for an Historic Religious Seminar, it attracted recently also a Free University's Educational studies. Well-known as a long-time preferred rest place for former cardinal Radzinger and his brother Georg, it includes areas named "St Benedeto" and "St George"...


But Pope Benedict's first speech gave also another symbolic rendez-vous :

- "Next Wednesday, August 6, we shall commemorate the 30st anniversary from the death of late Pope Paul VI", who "concluded Vatican II", and "the Transfiguration of Jesus, mystery of the divine light, which exerced a unique fascination to his soul", he said to some 12.000 applauding People, among the happy few who succeeded to have a rare place for an open-air Mass inside the Domplatz a particularly sunny day at the Alpes.



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 ?
