*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- Experienced, Long-Time Mainstream MEP, from the Governing ChristianDemocrat Party (CDU) in Germany, Elmar Brok, speaking to "Eurofora" in EU Parliament in Strasbourg, slamed a reported Claim by Turkey over Unilateral Military Intervention in Cyprus in the Future, which risks to Block the UN sponsored Talks for a Peaceful ReUnification of the Island, currently unfolding at Crans-Montana (Switzerland).

Brok has Chaired EU Parliament's Foreign Affairs Comittee for more than 12 Years, between 1999-2007 and 2012-2017, and Drafted Many Reports, particularly on EU Governance, EU Enlargement, and Common Foreign/Security Policy, etc.


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


 - Ankara reportedly wants to Hold an Unilateral Right for Military Intervention even in the Future, after a Solution to the Cyprus' Issue. Do you think that this would be Normal for an EU Member State (as Cyprus) ?, "Eurofora" Questioned Brok Today.

 - "No ! This is Not Acceptable !", cearly stressed, in reaction to "Eurofora"s above mentioned Question Brok.

- In fact, at First, "it has to be a Transitory Period", for Ankara's current Invasion/Occupation Troops to withdraw, he added.

- "And Afterwards", such problems should cease to exist, pleaded Brok in substance.


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

Cyprus' President, Nicos Anastassiades, has reportedly proposed that, in a ReUnified Cyprus, Security could be guaranteed also by mainly European/International mecanisms :


- I.e. the whole Island's full EU Membership, as well as by UNO's Security Council, (acting under Chapter 7 of UN Charter).

But Turkey's Foreign Minister Mesut Cavusoglou has reportedly stressed, even during recent Days at the sidelines of the Crans-Montana UN-sponsoted Multilateral Talks on Cyprus, that Ankara wants to keep Military Troops on the Island, in addition to a persistent Claim for a Right to Unilateral Military Intervention, provoking a series of  Growing Reactions.


Therefore, it seems, according to the Latest News, relased this Evening, that Ankara's would now push a variant of the above :


- After merely Diminishing the Number of the current Turkish Invasion/Occupation Troops if the Greek Cypriots  Accept Ankara's other desiderata on a Deal for Cyprus, Turkey would agree, After a ... Fifteen (15)  Years period of Time, simply for "a Review" of its Claim for Unilateral Military Intervention. But it would Never Accept to Totaly Withdraw all its Foreign Army from the Island.... Moreover, this would be reportedly subordinated to the Condition that Cyprus accepts a "Rotating" Presidency, between the Representatives of normaly 80% Greek Cyriots and 18% Turkish Cypriots, (as they were Before the Turkish Army Invasion), and/or to Give an extensive Right of "Veto" to the latter, etc.


But, inter alia, Mainstream German Newspaper "Die Welt" had Strongly Denounced (with a FrontPage Article already Published as Early as since January 2017) the Risk for ..."Erdogan to get a VETO on EU Decisions" (according to "Welt"'s Headines), through such manouvers via Turkish Cypriots' role in an eventual Deal on EU Member Cyprus according to Ankara's desiderata...


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


+ Meanwhile, at Crans-Montana (Switzerland),  Turkish Foreign Minister Mesut Cavusoglou has reportedly Threatened several times the Greek Cypriots that if they do Not Accept Ankara's demands on Cyprus' Issue, then, these UNO-sponsored Peace Talks would be ..."The Last" !


I.e. that UN + CoE + EU Member State Cyprus would be practicaly Abandoned to a persisting Foreign Military Invasion and Occupation of its Norhern Territories, added to some 200.000 Greek Cypriot Refugees' Family Homes and/or other Private Properties' Usurpation, mainly by illegal Foreign Turkish Settlers Massively Imported by Ankara in the Occupied Territories, if Nicosia dares not yield to Turkey's desiderata...       


Such a Cynic and, reportedly, these Days,  Repeated Threat by Mr. Cavusoglou, instead of Upseting, Terrorizing, and/or Blocking these important UN-sponsored Talks for a Peaceful ReUnification of Cyprus, would better be dealt with a bit of ..."Black Humour" :


- Indeed, the Turkish Foreign Minister's Threats for this to be "The Last" UN-sponsored efforts to Solve he Cyprus issue, irresistibly Remind ...the controversial American Actor Ms Meryl Streep's Maverick play-song ... "Last MidNight"  :

"Last MidNight"'s Lyrics are quite Locacious...


(Streep plays the role of an apparently Powerful but Bad Witch, which attempts to Terrorise a Poor and Weak Family, who Dared Refuse to Abandon their Child to her Abusive Demands... But, at the End, that Bad Witch falls in her own trap).


A relevant selection :



<< Witch
Shhhhhhhhhhhhh!

It's the Last midnight.
It's the Last wish.
It's the Last midnight,

Soon it will be Boom-
Squish!

.../...

Had to get your Prince,
Has to get your cow,
Have to get your wish,
Doesn't matter how-
Anyway, it doesn't matter now.

It's the last midnight,
It's the boom-
Splat!
Nothing but a vast midnight.
Everybody smashed flat!

-----------------
(The Persecuted Family) :

Nothing we can do.
Not exactly true:
We can always give her the boy...
No?
-------------------------------

No, of course what really matters
Is the blame,
Somebody to blame.
Fine, if that's the thing you enjoy,
Placing the blame,
If that's the aim,
Give me the blame-

=> Just Give me the Boy !


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


The others (the Persecuted Family) : No !  No !


Witch :  No ?


-----------------------
../..
I'm not good,
I'm not nice,
I'm just right.
I'm the Witch.
You're the world.

I'm the hitch.
I'm what no one believes,
I'm the Witch.
You're all liars and theives,
../..
Oh, why bother?
You'll just do what you do.

It's the last midnight,
So, goodbye all.
Coming at you fast, midight-

Soon you'll see the sky fall.

../..

Listen to the roar...
Giants by the score-!
Oh well, you can blame another witch.

It's the last midnight.
It's the last verse.
Now, before it's past midnight,

I'm leaving you my Last Curse:

I'm leaving you alone.
You can tend the garden, it's yours.
Separate and alone,
Everybody down on all fours.

../..
Lost the beans again!
../..
Give me claws and a hunch,
Just away from this bunch

And the gloom
And the Doom
And the Boom
Cruuunch !!!    >>

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

 

 Often, Cyprus' issue has been approached either in a Rush, with Hasty moves Risking to lead into a Shaky, Unsustainable situation ready to Crash and serve as Pretext for even Worse Division - or Carefully, with a Serious, Just and Balanched analysis, Trying to find the Best possible and more Solid solution for a real ReUnification.

The official presentation of a "Program" respecting People's choices voted in the June 7, 2009 EU Elections, to be debated in EU Council and EU Parliament during its 1st Session on July in Strasbourg, is the No 1 Priority, according to Democratic principles, for the Franco-German axis, said the main winners at the ballot box, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angie Merkel.

They stressed  that the New EU Commission's President must have a "Program" in favor of an EU which "protects" its Citizens, regulates financial markets and aims at a "Political" Europe" : a wording they have used as incompatible with Turkey's controversial EU bid.

They also declared ready for a "political" endorsment of "Mr. Barroso's candidacy" in June's EU Council, considering that an official decision would have to be made after EU Parliament's debates and votes, possibly from next month (July), with the legally necessary final acceptance shortly after Lisbon Treaty's entry into force, hoped for September or October.


- "A Program, and Mr. Barroso" : This resumes, in substance, the anouncements made by Sarkozy and Merkel, on the question of current EU Commission's President, Barroso's declared wish to succeed to himself for a second mandate, to be extended during the following 5 years.

 In their 1st meeting after EU Elections, they observed that "the Franco-German axis counted in European Elections' campaign... But, we both keep a realistic view : We saw the number of those who abstained, and we must absolutely give them an answer. We also see the disilusionment of an important number of Europeans vis a vis Europe, and we are aware of the responsibilities we have".

 - The "Duty" of the new EU Commission's President, after June 7, 2009 EU Elections' result, "is to act for a Europe which protects the Europeans, to commit himself into working for a better Regulation of Financial transactions, ... and to have a Political will for Europe", underlined Sarkozy.

Therefore, "we have asked M. Barroso... to clarify, to officialy present the intentions he has", he anounced.

- "We want to speak also about the Programme", explained Merkel.

- "It's important that for the next EU Parliament's mandate (2009-2014) we take the right Decisions for Europe.  Obviously on Persons, but mainly Decisions on Issues", she stressed.

- "It's not simply a question of a Person, it's also a question of a Programme". We are "really asking Mr. Barroso to commit himself on a Program, and on Principles, on Values", Sarkozy added.

EU President-in-office, Czech Prime Minister Jan Fischer, accepted the Franco-German stance :

- "Barroso must present his Programme. The Czech Presidency agrees with that", Fischer reportedly said later, after meeting Sarkozy.

But Press reports from Brussels claimed that Barroso had preferred to be officially appointed by EU Council since June, (i.e. next week), "because this was implied by the current Treaty of Nice, according to him", and considered any delay until the possible ratification of the new, Lisbon Treaty on September/October, as "undemocratic".

- "At any case, independently of what Germany and France ask, it's also EU Parliament's wish". "We shall propose Mr Barroso's candidacy... But even in the framework of Nice Treaty, EU Parliament has to be associated in this Decision", the French President observed.

If this is correctly done, then "we support Mr. Barroso's candidature", and "if the (EU) Parliament agrees, we might ratify this decision since July", (i.e. next month), they both said.

- "France and Germany support Baroso's candidacy, But we want to speak also on the Program. We believe that this Program should be established in close cooperation with EU Parliament, and that's why we have followed an appropriate way", said Merkel.  - If EU Parliament wants, this election can take place on July,  but this must be done in full agreement.

- "We shall support Mr. Barroso's candidacy, without doubt", said Sarkozy. "But we have asked from Mr. Barroso, as I told him yesterday, to put into detail.. his intentions, at the eve of his 2nd mandate, if the situation avails itself.


    France and Germany "don't want to take an Official Legal Decision by writting" during "the next (EU) Council" (on June 18-19), declared Sarkozy.  Because they prefer, at this stage, only "a Political decision" on June, "so that we (EU Council) can work together with EU Parliament", which starts to meet only Next Month, since July in Srasbourg, "leaving a Legal decision by writting for later".

    - "If the Conditions are fuillfiled in EU Parliament, we (EU Council) are ready to give the agreement and make it offficial", said Merkel

    - "But, now we are working in the base of Nice Treaty. If tommorow we want to work in the spirit of Lisbon Treaty, we have to find a proper way", she added.

    - "Of course it's Legally complicated, because we are going to make a Political proposal to the forthcoming Council, for an EU Commission's President, on the basis of Nice Treaty : So, we (EU Council) will not appoint the Commissioners. Only the President.  If EU Parliament agrees, it could endorse this position on July", explained Sarkozy.

    But, on Autumn, "if Ireland ratifies Lisbon Treaty, there will be, at any case, a 2nd Decision, to appoint the Commission's President, this time on the basis of Lisbon treaty, and then, we, the EU Member States, would have to appoint (also) the EU Commissioners", he added.

    As for the precise Timing :  - "Everything is suspended until the Irish vote... Now, we must all make everything possible to help Ireland to say "Yes"" to Lisbon Treaty... The Irish Referendum, ..will take place either on September or on October. It's a Question which depends on the Irish. And,  then, we shall have the Choice of the Candidates for the permanent Institutions of Europe".

    However, "if Ireland says No, we, French and Germans, have to assume our responsibilities, and we'll do so", he concluded.

    But British and Swedish governments were reportedly eager to have a final EU Council decision on Barroso since this month, on June's European Council. While the other EU Member Countries are divided, several of them preferring to wait until EU Parliament pronounces itself, on July, and/or until Lisbon Treaty might be ratified by Ireland at the beginning of the Autumn. Barroso's current mandate ends on November.

    There are also various, contradictory and/or unpredictable reactions inside EU Parliament vis a vis Barroso's wish to continue a 2nd mandate, because many MEPs are openly or secretly opposed, reluctant, or hesitating.

    In the biggest EU Countries, as France and Germany, EU Citizens voted on June 2009 EU Elections for a renovated, non-technocratic but Political Europe which cares for its Citizens, with an Identity, Values and Borders, declared incompatible with Turkey's controversial EU bid, by mainstream, pro-European Governing Parties. Similar choices were also supported in several other small or medium EU Countries.

    On the contrary, whenever, in other Countries, Governing and other mainstream Parties didn't make these choices or eluded them, EU Citizens massively voted for euro-Sceptics whenever they were the only ones to to promise anti-bureacratic change and oppose Turkey's demand to enter into the EU, (f.ex. in the UK, Netherlands, etc).

    It's seems to be an Open Question whether Sarkozy and Merkel's conditions will be really accepted by Barroso, who was appointed on 2004 in a different political context, (with Socialist Prime Ministers in Germany, France, etc), had rejected in the Past the idea of EU becoming "equal to the USA" as "ridiculous", and pushed for Turkey's contoversial EU bid, trying to "soften" or contain the changes desired by the People who voted for Merkel and Sarkozy with another policy vis a vis Turkey on 2005 in Germany and on 2007 in France, as they did all over Europe on 2009.

    In addition to many EPP Governments, it's 3 remaining Socialist Prime Ministers : Gordon Brown in the UK, Zapatero in Spain, and Socrates in Prortugal, who support Barroso, as well as Liberal Swedish Prime Minister Reinfeldt. But their Parties lost the June 2009 EU Elections.

    Questioned whether there was still "Time" for "other" possible "Candidates", Sarkozy and Merkel did not deny, nor made any comment on that, but simply said that "it's not for us to make publicity for any candidates. We anounced our choice ("A Program, and Mr. Barroso"). But we respect any other candidate".

    Among various other names cited are former Belgian Prime Minister Verhofstadt, former UNO's Human Rights Commissioner Mary Robinson of Ireland, Italian former EU Commission's vice-President Monti, etc. Meanwhile, Luxembourg's PM Juncker, (who had been unanimously accepted by EU Council for EU Commission's Presidency on 2004, but refused), announced his intention to resign from "EuroGroup"'s Chair. Thus, he might be available for another Top EU job.

    As "EuroFora"'s "opinion" said (See publication dated 9/6/09) : - "If the current candidates (i.e. Barroso, etc) to the Top EU jobs promise and guarantee to respect People's democratic choices, then, it's OK".

"Otherwise, Europe must find new candidates, really motivated and able to implement these democratic choices of the People."

    Because, "in Democracy, the forthcoming choices for EU's Top Jobs,...should be made according to EU Citizens' Votes in June 7, 2009 European Elections, and main EU Governments' strategic policies".
