*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/
- Mainstream, Long-Time MEP Paul Ruebig of Austria, from the Governing Party of ChristianDemocrats/EPP, speaking to "Eurofora", confirmed that his Famous role as "EU Parliament's Mr Roaming" man, hasnt' ended yet, since a lot remains still to do, in order to really ensure for EU Citizens a Fair Price on Mobile Phone Calls between EU Countries, especialy when they are Travelling abroad.


- Indeed, despite EU Commission's notorious promisse to Eliminate any supplementary Costs for "Roaming" from June Next Year (6.2017), nevertheless, still a Lot remains to do, for that "Mr. Roaming" MEP, in order to ensure that all Extra Costs would have Disappeared for EU Citizens while Travelling accross the EU.

F.ex., meanwhile, Ruebig has Tabled a Written Question, Together with former EU Commissioner Viviane  Reding, and Many other MEPs from various Countries, about a Risk for Mobile Phone calls made from the Country of origin, towards any Other EU Member Country, to remain almost as Costly as before, even after mid-2017, even if, paradoxicaly, at the same Time, Calls made from any Other EU Country, (f.ex. whenever one Travels abroad), woud stay at a Normal Price.

+ In Addition, even when all Roaming Extra Costs would have, Hopefuly, Disappeared, somewhere around Mid 2017, nevertheless, it will still remain to undo also those which persist to over-Tax Mobile Phones' use vis a vis the Rest of the World...

MEP Paul Ruebig has already expressed his Intention to Take Over also that 2nd Issue, as a Natural Extension of his initial Anti-Roaming Mission : - "After all, Internet is Global !".

Thus, EU's "Mr. Roaming", would, sooner or later, become also a  ..."Global Mr. Roaming" ! After all, at least a great part of UNO's European Headquarers are located in Austria's Capital Wien, aren't they ?

However, according to some well informed sources, it's not yet obvious whethe we shall witness, at last, the Full End of Any Roaming, be it inside the EU area, or even Globaly, before Retiring...

    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)

Polls
