*Baden-Baden /G20 Finance Ministerial/Angelo Marcopolo/- As it was also reported ater the latest Brussels' EU Summit, "Family Photos" of Top Politicians in European/International Summits might become a New Issue, Journalists initialy thought at the G20 Finance Ministers' meeting at Baden-Baden in Germany, when the scheduled Timeline for their Collective Photo at the Spectacular "KurHaus" Natural and Architectural Landscape, was, suddenly Postponed for an undetermined Moment, Later-on...


But in Brussels, it might have been, perhaps, a reported intra-Polish row, between Warsaw's new Conservative Prime Minister and EU Council's President, who was her predecessor, and/or vis a vis the out-going French Socialist President Hollande, that could be hidden behind unprecedented rumours to Stop Taking "Family Photos" in EU Summits, any more, at least for the Time being...


While, on the Contrary, here at Badan-Baden's G20 International Meeting, hosted by Germany's Experienced super-Minister Wilfgang Schauble, (a traditional Neighboor of Strasbourg), it seems well that this was Due much more to the Fact that, by a "Coincidence", almost at the Same Time, German Chancelor Anfie Merkel was holding, at Washington DC, an important Press Conference with the New US President Don Trump !

 

Merkel had initialy planned to visit Trump Earlier this week, but finzly decided to meet later-on, Today, allegedly due to some Extreme Weather phenomena, but, may be also in order to FineTune, precisely, this important G20 Finance Ministers gathering hosted by Schauble here, which is expected to Prepare the Final Conclusions of the fothcoming, June 2017 "G20" Heads of State/Government Summit in Hamburg, on some "Hot" Key Issues.


Indeed, the Waiting "Intermezzo" soon Ended, and all G20 Top Political Participants emerged, Smiling and involved in Warm Exchanges between them, in Front of Journalists authorized to memorize the Event (included "Eufofora"), so that many rushed to take some much-sought Original Photos, with a smiling Schauble in the Middle.


Naturaly, one of the main March 2017 G20 Press Attractions, was the 1st Official Visit by the New USA Secretary of the Treasury, Steven Mnuchin, whose Family is said to stem from Russia, settling to the US since the very Beginning of the 20th Century, with his Grand-Father reportedly having lived also in Belgium, long before Brussels becomes the nowadays Headquarters of EU Commission and Council, as well as NATO.
However, even the simple Fact that Russian Minister of Finance, Anton Siluanov, is also called "Germanovich", according to his Full Official Name, and even Speaks "fluently German", naturaly, could Not be Ignored, here in Germany, particularly at this period of time...


But it's naturaly their China counterpart, Beijing', >Finance Minister, Xiao Jie, who was a much sought Bilater Meetings' partner at the Sidelines of Baden-Baden G20 gatherings. Perhaps also because, when "China has Both Money and Intelligent People" to Deal with, it's Interesting, as NOBEL Winner Professor Lehn, characteristicaly said, Earlier this Week at Strasbourg's University, to "Eurofora".


As for growing Rumours and Speculations that, Perhaps, some "Global Warming" alleged concerns, might, eventualy, Push this G20 Finance Ministers important meeting, towards a kind of ... "Global Cooling", (given New US President Don Trumps' electoral arguments for some Differend (but Not necessarily Incompatible) Views, in fact, that supposed Risk didn't really look so serious as some would fear :


Indeed, both the Superb "Kurhaus" Arhitecture, with its Beautiful "BenazetSaal", (the Same that had Welcomed, Back on 2009, an Exceptional Summit of NATO, for its 60th Anniversary, when France re-integrated its Military part : Comp. "Eurofora"s NewsReports from that events, f.ex. at ....), and Baden-Baden's internationaly and Historicaly Famous   "Hot" Water Baths, looked well Able to efficiently Face any such alleged "Global Cooling" risks.


The latter didn't appear, however, absolutely groundless, since, at least, Today's Warm and Bright Sun-Light here, was due to Turn towards Cloudy Rain Tonight... But that's considered to be also a Good Time for Serious Work, isn't it ?


In the Meantime, almost all German, and many US Medias, were Predominantly Focused on the above-mentioned, Parallel Angie Merkel - Don Trump Talks at Washington DC, (Comp. Supra), with some Astonishing Exceptions, however :


- On the Contrary, France's most Traditional "Foreign Policy-oriented Newspaper, the once Famous for its earlier Quality "Le Monde", (i.e. "The World"), Unlike its German counterpart "Die Welt", didn't decicate its FrontPage Headlines, neither to this G20 Top Event, nor even to that Merkel-Trump topical meeting, (Comp. Supra).


Instead, Center-Left leaning, Establishment's Media "Le Monde" almost entirely Dedicated its "la Une" FrontPage Top News page, in ... a Gift of 2 cosy Coats (sic !), in the Past, to the Frontrunner Candidate of the Center-Right "Republican" Party, former Prime Minister Francois Fillon !


So that, Tonight, he would envy, his former Minister of Finance, nowadays IMF's Chief, Christine Lagarde's remarked Presence here, at the First Row of "G20" Top Finance Officials Gathering, placed Right in Front of "Eurofora" at Baden-Baden's beautiful Evening...

* EuroCorps, EU defence's etat major, which has just celebrated 15 years of age (1993 - 2008), is young enough to feel enthousiasm for missions to guarantee Human Rights, Peace and reconcilation : Strasbourg's Historic Symbols, but also maturing fast, (particularly under the current French EU Presidency), in order to prepare potentialy important developments in 2009 :

- "EUROCORPS" is a "unique tool" for "a Modern Europe", jointly managed by participating Nations without anyone deciding for others", to "support their efforts to promote Reconciliation, Peace and Human Rights' Values, which identify today's European ideal, with its Symbol-City : Strasbourg", stressed its Chief, Spanish General Pedro PITARCH, in a popular ceremony for the 15th Anniversary of the European Army Corps, at its Headquarters.

- "Today, we are ready and able to fullfil any Peace-keeping Mission may be decided by the Political leadership, since we can deploy up to 60.000 soldiers and/or other agents, mainly in land, but in coordination with Sea and Air operarions", (even to build vital Infrastructures, demining, keep public order, facilitate Elections, etc), said to EuroFora EUROCORPS' Spokesman and Press Director, Colonel Raul SUEVOS.

EU Parliament asked, Summer 2008 in Strasbourg, " to place Eurocorps as a standing force under EU command", and "invited all (EU) Member States to contribute to it".

France, Germany, Belgium, Spain, and Luxembourg (participating with Funds, Telecoms and Officers), are EUROCORPS"' main "Framework Nations", due to be joined by Italy in 2009. Greece and Austria participate as "Contributing Nations", while Poland decided to upgrade its role. Turkey has liaison Officers for NATO relations, and even USA decided to send Officers to Strasbourg on 2009.

Observers await with impatience also the outcome of NATO's April 2009 Summit in Strasbourg in order to have a better view of EuroCorps' future.
