*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.

    An "Eugenic" loophole Amendment, which might expose to Dangers reminiscent of "3rd Reich's" notorious Genetic Abuses, hidden at the last minute inside an otherwise Good, larger Health policy Package scheduled to be voted on Thursday, was strongly denounced by a coalition of MEPs from various Political Groups and Countries, in a Press Conference held this afternoon at EU Parliament in Strasbourg.

    Mainly calling to "Select Human Embryos", via "Genetic Counselling" and "pre-implantation" Techniques including "Genetic Tests", in order to "Eradicate Hereditary rare Diseases", it might open ways to Dangerous Practices in Future, they denounced in substance.

    But they also made it clear that a much larger Report inside which this Controversial Amendment "No 15" was added in dubious circumstances, officialy destinated to struggle against "Rare Diseases", and drafted by Professor Antonios Trakatellis, was otherwise "an Excellent Report", aiming at a "completely Uncontroversial target" of Health policy on which "all MEPs and Experts are united, believing that Europe should act" to protect People's Health (See "EuroFora"'s earlier News).

    The controversy came at a particularly delicate moment for the EU in relation to Citizens, at the eve of June 2009 EU Elections, and shortly before Ireland re-votes for "Lisbon Treaty"..    

- Denouncing risks of "an Eugenic demand, very similar to what we had during the 3rd Reich in Germany, but now coming from some Scientisists themselves", German ChristianDemocrat/EPP MEP Dr. Peter Liese stressed that critical MEPs were against "Eugenic" engineering with "Selection of Human Embryos", and anything which might ultimately lead up to to a "Selection of Human Race". It doesn't help to "eradicate" Human Lives, he added.


    Several Experts and NGOs expressed "Deep Concern", as f;ex. DR M.C. Cornel of the "European Society of Human Genetics", which stressed, on this occasion, that "the importance of Non-Directiveness in Reproductive issues is a Central characteristic of Human Genetics, after the Atrocities committed in the name of Genetics in the first half or the 20th Century".

     - "This is completely Unacceptable", stressed Italian Liberal MEP Vittorio Prodi, on the Controversial Amendment, also because pushes to "eliminate early Human Life", as he noted.

     - "This opens a Dangerous Road, rather a Motorway", denounced Danish MEP Mrs Margrette Auken, from the "Greens", observing that various similar attempts were made in the Past "not only in Germany, but also in several other Countries, "even at the 1970ies", "f.ex. on forced Sterilisation of Roma" People, and other criticisable situations f.ex. in the UK, in Sweden, etc. as she said.

    + Other NGOs, as f.ex. "LebenHilfe" from Berlin, added that, among various other Risks, could also be that, by exploiting the pre-implantation Genetic Diagnostics and the Selection of "healthy" Embryos, some may "propagate" several "Eugenic" aims, starting f.ex. by pushing to eradicate Human Livies which might "Cost too much" to preserve, ultimately exposing to dangers reminiscent of the "3rd Reich"'s atrocious abuses.

    In consequence, ChristianDemocrats/EPP and "Green" MEPs "decided by Majority to vote against" this Controversial Amendment, anounced to Journalists the 5 MEPs who participated in the Press Conference, representing a wide spectrum, from Liberals to "Greens" and ChristianDemocrats, and from Hungary, Italy, Germany and Danemark up to Ireland (Gay Mitchell), etc.
----------------------------------
    Hungarian ChristianDemocrat MEP Laszlo Surjan said "that it was "Suddenly, at the End of the Procedure" in Committee, that "appeared this (Controversial) Amendment, which has nothing to do" with the main purpose of the Report, on which all agreed.

    He denounced an "Unhonest" move, and called to "avoid this kind of unacceptable situations". Nobody should "Select People", Surjan stressed.

    - "We (MEPs) had No Chance to Discuss" this last-minute Amendment earlier added at a Committee's level, said German MEP Peter Liese

    Speaking to "EuroFora", Dr. Liese, the Spokesman of the ChristianDemocrat/EPP Group in EU Parliament, said that MEPs didn't oppose other references of the Report f.ex. on "Genetic Tests", because they were "no proposals" to impose them, while, on the contrary, there was "a Problem" if anyone attempted to "impose" f.ex. this or that Genetic Technique and "Genetic Counselling", etc. to the People on human reproduction.
-------------
The precise Text :
-----------------
    Controversial parts of Amendment No 15 ask mainly "to lead finally to the Eradication" of "Hereditary" "rare diseases", "through Genetic Counselling .., and ..pre-Implantation Selection of healthy Embryos".

    But  EU Rapporteur Professor Trakatellis, said to "EuroFora" that fears should be alleviated by Guarantees that all this should be done only "where appropriate", when it's "not contrary to existing National Law", and "always on a Voluntary basis", according to other Parts of the Amendment.

    He stressed that the main aim was to allow "a free and informed choice of persons involved", without imposing them anything :  - "It's not an obligatory, but advisary" text, he said.

    To make that point clear, he was ready, in agreement with many MEPs, to eventually drop at least that part of the controversial Amendment which initially called for "efforts to ..lead finally to the Eradication of those rare diseases" "which are Hereditary".

    But, until late Wednesday evening, reportedly together with many other MEPs, he stood by all the rest of the controversial Amendment, (fex. on the "Genetic Counselling" and the "pre-implantation Selection of healthy Embryos"), so that critical MEPs, going from ChristianDemocrats as Dr. Liese, to "Greens" or "Ind/Dem", observed to "EuroFora" that "this was not enough" to close the dangerous loophole.

    Particularly since, as Professor Trakatellis noted himself, "this is already allowed to the U.K.", and "other National Legislations would probably follow, sooner or later" in a similar direction. As for a general call to "Eradicate Hereditary rare Diseases", this "should happen, at any case, in practice, de facto", to protect public Health.

    On the contrary, "our goal should be to help patients suffering from rare diseases, not to eradicate the patients. In case of genetic disease risk, the decision should not be guided by scenarios" made by politicians. "Perents who may decide to accept a child, even if handicapped or with genetic disease, must be respected and supported with solidarity", critical MEPs stated.

    - "Any Pressure" to "a patient or couple (who "should be able to make an informed choice consistent with their own values"),"from health Professionals, Public Health Policies or Governemental Institutions, or Society at large, should be avoided", stresses the "European Society for Human Genetics".

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

Each MEP's vote will be registered !

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

The Socialist Group requested a "Split vote" on the Amendment 15, first without, and afterwards with the words "lead finally to the Eradication" etc.


    But the first "split vote" leaves intact all the other parts of the Controversial Amendment, (i.e. "Genetic Counselling", "Selection of healthy Embryos", etc).

    That's why, 3 Groups of MEPs : ChristianDemocrats/EPP, "Greens/EFA", and "Ind/Dem", have asked for "Roll Call Votes", on everything regarding the Controversial Amendment No 15, and on the final outcome of the resulting Report as amended, which will register all the individual positions to be taken by each MEP.   

Something which will obviously make each MEP think twice before voting for one or another choice, to be sure that he/she will make the right choice in front of EU Citizens, particularly at these pre-Election times...


    Crucial Votes were scheduled between 12 Noon and 1 p.m. local Strasbourg time, in the middle of a long series of various other Reports, and after a long Public Debate on the larger Health policy package, from 9 to 11.50 am.

    The specific Report inside which was hidden the controversial Amendment is due to be debated between 11 and 12 am.

    So that more last-minute Surprises may not be excluded a priori...

    Particularly at the present Historic moment, when even the Institutional Future of the EU depends on the result of a second Referendum on "Lisbon Treaty", later this year, in ...Ireland, a mainly Catholic country, where People are particularly sensitive in such kind of socio-cultural and values issues...
