*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- As EU renews its Monitoring of Libya Arms Embargo in the Mediterranean Sea, (Mission "Sophia"=Wisdom), after LNA hit a Turkish Arms Smuggling area at Tripoli SeaPort, GNA suspended Peace Talks, droped UN Geneva meetings, claimed cease-fire violation, asked "Sanctions" against the Opposition, (etc)...

But its Cronies were unable to do more than merely Deny that a Turkish Ship was still there "When" that Strike took place ; Claim that a ship would be "not technically Turkish" if this was covered under a "Flag of Seychelles registered Company"; and/or if another ship used an "Albanian Flag", but "Sailed from Mersin, Turkey on Feb.9 & arrived Tripoli in Feb.15" ; while, at any case, they didN't even dare Deny the notorious Fact that, Earlier, it was Not 1 but ...5 Turkish Military Frigates which had escorted at Tripoli SeaPort Cargos with Heavy Weapons, including Armoured Vehicles and "Hawk" Anti-AirCraft systems, (as Denounced even by UNO's Libya Envoy Salamé), added to UnPopular and Dangerous armed Gangs of Islamist Terrorists deployed by Turkey from Syria's Idlib "by Thousands", (See: ..., etc).             

=> Such "UnScrupulous Actors" (according to UNO's  Ghassan Salamé, recently), as those UnElected guys from the so-called "Government of National Accord" ("GNA"), that some inside UNO curiously persist to "recognize", Despite the Fact that they doN't even gather Any "Accord" at all in Libya, where they doN't control, no more, not even 1/3 of the Country, while, on the Contrary, the "National Libyan Army" is Supported by Libya's only Internationaly Recognized and Elected Parliament : that of Tobruk, where it was obliged to find Refuge, since the 2015 Violent Clashes with Islamist Militia in Tripoli, Backs General Haftar, who already controls the Biggest Part of the Country, and Nowadays just met with USA, EU and Russia Top Officials.

Curiously, Turkey criticized EU's decision on Air/Sea Monitoring of Arms Embargo on Libya, but, on the Contrary, ...praised Tripoli's GNA's decision to Suspend UN Geneva Peace Talks !

+ Meanwhile, the GNA's decision to Suspend UN-sponsored Peace Talks at Geneva, surprizingly Coincided wth the official Presentation of the "Conditions" raised by Libyan Tribal Leaders, (Allies of NLA's General Haftar), in order to UnBlock the Oil Pipelines heading Westwards, towards Tripoli's GNA, that they had, recently, Stoped flowing, in order to Oblige it to Hear their Demands : A move which had provoked a row, with the GNA claiming that it Threatened seriously Libya's Economy, while Refusing, however, to Negotiate with the East...

Now, those Conditions were Received at Geneva by UNO's Libya Envoy Salamé, who reportedly said that the were of "quite General" nature, and would be treated in the Context of the Economic aspects of the Libyan Issue. According to "Reuters", they are related with "overcoming Economic Divisions". Previously, a National Parliament's Spokesperson, had pointed towards "a Fair Distribution of Wealth".     

But Nothing concrete was revealed Today, while Tripoli's GNA did Not Comment on the substance of that Socio-Economic Differend.

However, Libya's Tribes' Leaders, gathered at a 2 Day's long meeting in Tarhouna (near Tripoli), reportedly Warned that this Problem would "Escalate", if there is still "No Reply" to their reiterated requests.

+Meanwhile, Tripoli's Matiga Airport had earlier suspended Flights again, after clashes, and Oil Tankers were nowadays reportedly withdrawn from Tripoli's SeaPort, after the latest incident (Comp. supra).

    EU-educated charming young Chinese presence started to be felt in Council of Europe's corridors in Strasbourg at the aftermath of an Historic Resolution adopted by its Parliamentary Assembly in favor of opening the possibility to give China a special "Status" in the PanEuropean Organization.

    - "My proposal to offer to China an official status as "Observer", in short term, under conditions, was welcomed" by the CoE : "The road to Dialogue between China and the CoE has now been opened", declared after Strasbourg's debates and votes the Head of France's delegation, MEP Jean-Claude Mignon.

    "Neither complacency, nor a mere condamnation of China", but a "wise approach of a political issue of great importance", advised Mignon to all those who'd either overload claims on Democracy, Human Rights or Minorities, or close their eyes to anything, there as elsewhere... A balance which was not exactly followed during debates, contrary to Mignon's personal stance, which appeared rather even-handed.

    China is the only UNO Security Council permanent member which has not yet any status at the CoE, being still obliged to be represented in Strasbourg by a General Consul : USA and Canada, even Japan and .. Mexico, have already got a special Status at the CoE, following Strasbourg's decision, back in 1995, to counter-balance the accession of Russia (1996) by creating special links to traditional "Western-world" allies.

    All former "Socialist" Eastern European countries started to have relations whith the CoE through its former sector on Culture and Education, before becoming full Members of Strasbourg's paneuropean organization. Speculations were unfolding recently about establishing a probable concrete link with China through the topical issue of anti-doping in Sport, on the occasion of the 2008 Olympic games.

    More spectacular, a meeting co-organized a few years ago in Strasbourg, by EuroFora and the International Space University between EU Parliament's long-time Rapporteur for EU's Satellite Navigation system "GALILEO", German MEP Brigitte Langenhagen, and a group of postgraduate students, attracted special interest from Chinese experts, and was followed, in less than a month, by the anouncement of China's intention to support EU's GALILEO project with a participation of 200 million €.

    Compared to that, revendications of .. "Turkish" Minorities, by Turkish MEPs, this week in Strasbourg, spreading through a wide area extended ...from Greece up to China, appeared less worrying, than pittoresque...

    Meanwhile, France's political will to start involving China and other important countries in European and Global affairs was due to be raised also at the forthcoming G-8 Summit in Japan by President Nicolas SARKOZY, (NDLR  : confirmed on July 5)
