*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- [NDLR: In a text Send to "Eurofora"+ by German Paneuropean Union's Head, Experienced former Long-Time MEP, Bernd Posselt, he mainly Urges EU's Conference on Europe's Future, whose 1st Plenary kick-Starts Tomorrow in Strasbourg, to Avoid "Mock Debates" in order to Focus on the Core Issues concerning the State of Europe. In this regard the Biden - Putin meeting at nearby Geneva, also on European Issues, in the Absence of any EU Representative, speaks by itself...  [See Infra].

We willingly Publish almost All his Original Text, (with Only 1 Word Edited), since "Eurofora" Agrees with Most of it. However, we Also Sincerely Believe that a Real and Full eventual Mobilisation of the Bulk of European People, (for the 1st Time in History, Possible, thanks to Modern TeleCommunications), if Rightfuly Developed, Could Stimulate Europe's Future as required by the World Nowadays. +In Addition, "Eurofora" Believes that National Democratic States are a proper European Characteristic, (f.ex. pratically Non-Existent in Africa, whose Bprders are Different, Neither in Asia, where Turkish, Indian, or Chinese "Empires" Dominate), and must he Preserved, as part of the European Democracy, bringing Closer to the People. Nevertheless, naturally, this does  Not Exclude at all an Eventual Federation of Europe ! On the sole condition that Small/Medium Member States might Defend their Vital National Security and/or Social Values' matters, at least in a (Court-controled) Proportional way, while leaving all Other Aspects to a possible Federal European State].

"Posselt: Becoming a (Federal) State, instead of Mock-Debate

Criticism of the EU Conference on the Future of Europe / Honouring Jean-Claude Juncker

47th Paneuropean Days of the Paneuropean Union Germany

18. 06. 2021

Trier. At the beginning of the 47th Paneuropean Days of the Paneuropean Union Germany (today) in Trier, its president, the CSU European politician Bernd Posselt, criticized the EU Conference on the Future of Europe, which was constituted at the same time in Strasbourg: "It must be about the State of the EU in the 21st century and not about ... Mock debates Past the Core of European problems.

He referred to the meeting between Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin in Geneva: "It was about the fate of Europe, but the Europeans did not sit at the table."The blueprint for the further development of the EU is actually obvious:" We need a Strengthening of the European Parliament, an EU Commission Elected by it, which sees itself as a real European Government, the abolition of the Unanimity principle in Foreign policy, and a European Defence union.“

The Paneuropean Days are the Annual main event of the German branch of the Oldest European unification movement founded in 1922.

At tomorrow's rally, the patron of the Congress, former European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, visited by guests from different European countries, will be awarded the special Paneuropean Merit Medal. According to Posselt, the non-partisan Paneuropean Union will focus on three topics at the festive opening tonight and at the main rally on Saturday morning: the reconstruction of cross - border living and cultural spaces after the damage caused by the corona-related border closures, the establishment of a democratic and sovereign European federation and the role of Europe as a defender and beacon of human rights in the world.


From Trier, the oldest city in Germany, the participants will travel by bus to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, where Cardinal Jean-Claude Hollerich, as President of the EU Bishops 'Conference, will celebrate a mass together with the President of the Bishops' Conference of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Franjo Komarica, in the famous pilgrimage town of Echternach. On Sunday, the Paneuropean Days, which are under the motto "Shaping Europe, not just managing it", end with a Protestant service, which Father Werner Sonn holds, as well as the annual Federal Delegate Assembly of the Paneuropean Union Germany.

Swedish Foreign Minister, Carl Bildt, speaking  to "EuroFora", denied rumors on Turkey's attempts to avoid an EU check of its obligations on Cyprus on December 2009 by blackmailing Nicosia to either accept any deal with intransigeant Turkish claims contrary to EU values on the island's political issue, or face threats against the territorial integriy of the EU island, semi-occupied by Ankara's army.

On the contrary, the incoming EU President-in-office, speaking exclusively to "EuroFora", promissed that he will act for EU Council's decisions on December 2009 assessment of Turkey's commitments on Cyprus to be kept.


    Bildt was asked to react to Cyprus' President Christofias' denunciation, earlier this week, that some want to exert "pressure" on Cyprus in order for Turkey to escape from its obligations.

    Avoiding to mention any precise Deadline, Bildt, however, warned about "Consequences" in case of "failure" to reunite Cyprus, but without saying whose responsibility an eventual deadlock might be.  

 Asked by "EuroFora" if there is a risk for "Turkey's commitments to "be forgotten or downgraded", "despite crystal-clear EU Council decisions and EU Parliament's latest Resolution on the assessment to make at the end of this year on Turkey's obligations", according to rumours that, instead of pressing Turkey, on the contrary, there might be "pressure on Cyprus", even "blackmail", as Media reported and President Christofias denounced this week, Bildt denied :

- "No ! ", he clearly replied.


- On the contrary, invited by "EuroFora", to "reassure that the Swedish EU Presidency (7-12/2009) will keep a fair stance, based on principles",  Bildt promised that "we (Swedish EU Presidency) will be very clear on all of the decisions taken by the (EU) Council".

He added, however, that "we have very numerous decisions that have been taken" by EU Council, as if he warned, also, on something else.

- "'I am not aware of any sort of statements coming out today''", Bildt started to say, on our reference to Cyprus' President Christofias" denunciation of Turkish lobby's manoeuvers this week, replying earlier to 'another"EuroFora"'s question during a Press Conference at EU Parliament in Strasbourg.


 - '"I know the issues that you' are concerned with'", he added, remembering  the statements he gave us when Sweden was chairing the PanEuropean CoE on 2008.

- "But, obviously, .. I think that Cyprus' Peace negotiations are extremenly important".

- And "'I think that we are at a unique moment in History, in the sens that both (Cyprus') President Christofias and Mr. Talat (the Turkish Cypriot leader), are personally convinced of the need to overcome the division".

 - "It's 20 Years since the fall of Berlin Wal, but we still have a Capital in Europe (Nicosia) that's divided". ,

- 'I don't that we should loose any time in overcoming that"..

 - ''We should be aware of the fact that success will bring great benefits, but failure, will also have major consequences. There will not be Status Quo' " It's a question of seeking a solution, or entering another situation, which is somewhat difficult to see exactly how that could evolve", he warned.

- "That being said, this is a negotiation for Cyprus itself", Bildt admitted.

 - ''We (EU) can support, the (EU) Commission primarily, be technically helpful, and then, of course, there is a specific role for the UN, when it comes to the Cyprus' situation".  

- "At least so far. It might not be for ever'. Certainly not for ever, but for this period of time", Bildt added, skiping now any reference to concrete threats on UNO's Peace keeping force in face of more than 40.000 Ankara's soldiers, contrary to some Press claims, (See previous NewsReports).


     Replying to another "EuroFora"'s Question,  if anyone might attempt to "impose a Deadline for the conclusion" of Cyprus' Talks on December 2009, Bildt avoided to speak of any precise Time-frame, and indirectly evoked the fact that  35 Years of Turkish Invasion/Occupation obviously durated too long :

'- "If I was from Cyprus, I would say that the Deadline was Yesterday ! '",
Bildt concluded.

Cyprus' Government Spokesman, Stephanou, reportedly pointed out that "a settlement is possible on December if Turkey changes its stance", accepting a solution for the reunification of the island based on UNO resolutiona and EU principles.

Earlier, EU Chair, Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeld, highlighted an "historic opportunity" to "re-Unite" Cyprus according to EU's "basic Values"' (i.e. Human Rights) and 'Rules'", in a last-minute change of his draft speech to EU Parliament in Strasbourg.

    The initial Draft spoke only about "healing" the island.

    Significantly, Reinfeldt linked Cyprus' reunification with Turkey's obligations to respect EU's "Values" and "follow" EU's "common Rules" :

    - What is "called Membership Negotiations" should lead, "at- the end of the day", into "sharing a set of common Basic Values (i.e. Human Rights, Democracy, etc), and following common Rules", stressed Reinfeld from the outset.
    
    - "This is something that those on the Outside (of the EU), are now  contemplating", up "to Ankara", for "a solution" on "Cyprus", observed the EU Chairman, immediately afterwards..  

    - "Both sides of Cyprus have been granted a historic opportunity to together reach an agreement on a solution to re-Unite the island, that has been divided for far too long", said Reinfeldt, modifying his draft text.


-  "The Swedish Presidency will act ...in accordance with Commitments EU has made, on the basis of Criteria that apply", "as a Honest Broker", he promised.    

- "To those on the inside (of the EU), allowing the membership process to become an opportunity to solve protracted disputes, can be tempting", he added.


    "In such cases, we must find solutions that can benefit both sides, and open up a way forward. Otherwise, it would jeopardize the progress we have made towards EU integration", Reinfeldt said.
