*Reichstett/Angelo Marcopolo/
- Amidst the ReVitalizing Oxygen of Green Landscapes at the beautiful Alsacian Village of Reichstett near Strasbourg, looking at the Direction of EU Parliament and CoE straight Ahead at a Bird's Fly, and praised by mainstream Strasbourg Politicians, (including the New Head of French Regions, former Minister, Philippe Richert), for his "Experience, Energy, Capacity and Faithfulness" as they said, the Chief of the main Opposition Party in France, and former President of the Country, Nicolas Sarkozy, an original ChristianDemocrat/EPP, Strongly Bounced Back to his favorite Popular context and Big, "Hot" issues, Focusing Now on Freedom to Debate, People's decisive role, Identity and Assimilation of Migrants, Security and Fight against Terrorism, Boosting Economy and reDynamizing Politics, Concluding by the Urgent Need for New Foundations to Europe, and a Human touch.


 - "I Refuse for Debates to be Muzzled, Silenced or Prohibited !", he Strongly stressed from the outset, (on one of the Rare Key-Points where he didn't Change Oraly his Draft Speech), launching a Call for the People "Not to let anyone Steal your Debates !", and pleading for a Right to Speak for "People's Sovereignity".


This goes, at an immediate term, naturaly for the Current "Primary" Votes inside each Big Political Party before the forthcoming, Crucial 2017 French Presidential Elections (April/May Next Year), but also for eventual National or Eurepean "Referendum on Major Issues of concern to the People", as he said, by a Timely Coincidence, speaking just 1 Day After a World-Famous Hungarian Referendum, by popular Prime Minister Victor Orban (another ChristianDemocrat/EPP) on Sunday, (where he Succeeded to get the support of a much More Greater percentage of Registered Voters, than even EU and/or USA Leaders : See the Facts at ......), while, on the Contrary, in France, the current, outgoing Socialist Government has just Prohibited even a Mayor to make a Popular Referendum in order to Give a Chance to the Local Population to Express its Opinion on an Attempt to relocate, near their Family Homes, Childrens' Schools, etc., a Disproportionate Number of Irregular Migrants from far away Africa and/or Asia, relocated from the notorious "Calais' Jungle", at the Franco-Brittish Borders.


But, possibly also on "Family, a fundamental Institution of our Society, to which many People are strongly attached", he added, (after various, notoriously Popular Struggles to Defend Natural Family and/or Natural Birth and Raising up of Children, against some Controversial and more or less UnPopular attempts to Impose "Same Sex Marriages" and/or Subordination of Children to the Power of Homosexuals on Pretext of "Adoption", often added to the Atrocious "Surrogate Mothers'" Exploitation of Women, and/or to Artificialy "assisted" Births, controlled by Technocrats, with obvious Dangers for all Humankind, as several, still unfolding, recent Events attest, both in Europe and at the USA, etc., (including even a Recent Clash between Pope Francis and a French Minister about denounced attempts to Impose a so-called "Gender Theory" upon School-Children, etc).

- In Wider Terms, "the current (Political) Left, has Betrayed the Workers !", the French Political Leader denounced, (touching upon an obviously "Hot" Point, on which even the American GOP Party Candidate for the Crucial, forthcoming US Presidential Elections, Donald Trump, notoriously Evoked at his landmark Inauguration Speech, Earlier this Summer, at the Republican Party's National Convention, Back on July 2016, at Cleveland, Ohio, tackling Hillary Clinton from her "Left" side, after Sanders' dismissal by the Dems Party Establishment in Controversial Conditions as "Wikileaks" revealed : See "Eurofora"s NewsReport at ....).


Unpredictably Bouncing at the Right Spot, while Entering a Meeting Room (Symbolicaly located at the Local "Sports Center"..., and placed under the Banner "Reichstett Loves Sport !", by its Athletic Mayor, Georges Schuler, New Secretary General of Strasbourg's "Republicans"), Sarkozy suddenly made a Surprize Move, Turning Right in Front of an astonished "Eurofora", among collegues Journalists and many People, Saluted those present, and rushed Back to the Officials' lounge, before getting on the podium.


He was very much Applauded when he praised the People for being "Proud" of their "Identity and (Historic) Roots" at their Land, as he said, before Speaking in favor of a Cultural "Integration" and "Assimilation" of Migrants who wish to Stay in their Host Country in Europe, fustigating f.ex. some excessive "Provocations by a Political Islam", (as, f.ex. a recent Multiplication of "Burquas" ostensibly placed in Public Spaces, Women Obliged to bear "Burkinis" even while Bathing at the Sea (to the point that even Young Children aged only 14, Boys and Girls, were Violently Aggressed by Adults with Clubs and Knives just for Taking a Photo of such an unprecedented spectacle, recently Imported and Imposed at their Home City at Corsica Island, etc), instead of "an Islam of France" or European. If somebody went to the USA like this, he/she would have been Immediately Send Back, he pointed out, Pleading also for "Women's Rights".


Sarkozy also Vowed to Strongly "Fight against those Barbarians of the Islamic State's" (ISIS') Butal Deadly Terrorism, speaking after an Unprecedented Series of Mass Killings, even of Innocent Civilian People, Women, Elders and even Children included, during this Summer 2016, in several European (and even USA) States, including France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, the UK, etc. - "In this War that they have Declared, it will be Us, or Them !", he Firmly reiterated anew, Calling to Stripe from "Double Nationality" and take Security Measures against those for whom there are Serious Grounds to be Suspected as "Jihadists", systematicaly use "Jihadist Propaganda Websites", and have even Prepared to Go Become themselves Jihadists, (f.ex. towards ISIL's HQ at Syria/Iraq, etc. via Turkey a.o., as  had done, f.ex., those Violent Terrorists who cowardly Murdered even an Old Christian Priest recently, inside the Historic, 13th Century Church of Saint-Etienne du Rouvray, as well as Many Other ISIS' inspired Killers of other Innocent Civilian People this Last Summer).


On Europe, inter alia, Sarkozy Criticized those who "still raise the Question of Turkey's (controversial and unpopular) EU bid, even after the UK went Out" after the Recent BREXIT Vote, and Clearly Confirmed his Famous position that "Turkey belongs to Asia Minor, and has No Vocation to Enter inside the EU !", strongly Applauded by the People.


He also Promissed, Today, that, if re-Elected, he will "Go Immediately, on May 6 (2017) to Berlin", in order to Propose, together with German Chancellor Angie Merkel, to Sign a Franco-German Initiative for a New EU Treaty. (In this way, he notoriously expects, also, too eventualy Invite new British Prime Minister Theresa May, to consider eventualy for the UK to re-Join, later-on, a Brand "New Europe").

EU's main Competences should be Focused only on certain Key Areas, such as, f;ex., Agriculture, Scientific/Technological Research, Industry, Energy, Trade, etc., giving "the rest to the (EU Member) States", while, on the Contrary, €urozone Countries (where, as it's well known, any Willing EU Country is Able to Join, whenever it becomes Ready) should get a Strong Governance f.ex. by a Presidency, where core EU Countries such as France and Germany, etc., are naturaly due to assume their Responsibilities and become more Active, in the foreseable Future. (A Plan whose main points Sarkozy had HighLighted initialy, after an Hour-Long previous Exchange with Chancelor Merkel, at a landmark Speech in the Adenauer Foundation at Berlin, as Early as since February 2014 already, at the Invitation of Experienced, former EU Parliament's President, Hans Gert Poettering.


Despite of a Basic reminder of EU's Franco-German ReConciliation and close Cooperation's positive input, mainly by Ensuring Peace for Many Decades in Europe, and another Call for "a New Shengen", since "the Old Shenghen has Collapsed", as he said, nevertheless, probably for Time Restraints, given an Exceptionaly OverLoaded EU and CoE Agenda in Strasbourg these 2 Weeks, Sarkozy didn't, Now, Advance Further on his Views and Intentions about purely European issues, (even if Strasbourg's "Great East" Region's President, Philippe Richert, had earlier Topicaly Reminded the former President of France -and, then, even of the EU-  World Famous Move, already Back on 2008, during the Georgia - Russia Crisis, to immediatelt Fly to Moscow and Tbilisi, meeting and negotiating with the Presidents of Both embattled then Countries, and Succeeding at least to Bring Peace, "Contrary to what Happened, later on 2014, with Ukraine", as he observed, while mutualy Negative, controversial EU/USA "Sanctions" vis a vis Russia, Destructions, Economic Problems, Divisions and even People Killed (including, still, Civilians, even if Less than Back on 2014-2015, perdure at Ukraine's pro-Autonomy Regions of Donetsk-Luhansk), to the point that a New Quadripartite, France - Germany - Russia - Ukraine Summit is currently prepared for an eventual meeting asap.

    The recent paradox of freezing EU Talks with front-runner Croatia, while continuing controversial EU - Turkey talks, despite Zagreb's acceptance of Refugees' Human Rights to return, that Ankara refuses fex. in Cyprus, while both have "Good Neighborhood" problems vis a vis Slovenia, or Greece, Cyprus and Armenia respectively, can it be justified by the non-fullfilment of EU criteria, as Slovenia says, or, is it "Double Standards" ?    

The question became unavoidable after statements by Presidents of Slovenia and Croatia, Tuerk and Mesic, respectively, to "EuroFora", exclusively or among Strasbourg's journalists this week at the CoE, on the sidelines of its 2009 Summer University for Political Schools, which topically brought them together as successive key-note speakers.


    Comming only a few Months before EU checks Turkey's compliance to its commitments on Cyprus, etc., scheduled for December 2009, this obviously has a special importance for the coherence of EU Enlargement's principles.

     Suspension of EU Negotiations is a normal consequence in case of a Candidate Country's failure to fullfil EU Conditions, such as "Good Neighborhood relations", stressed at first Slovenian President Danilo Tuerk, current CoE's chair.

    But, regarding EU's Criteria,  there shouldn't be any "Double Standards",  reacted Croatian President Stjepan Mesic, commenting the fact that Turkey's controversial EU negotiations continue, while they were recently "freezed" in the case of Croatia, an "unquestionably European Country", which oficially accepts to respect Refugees Human Rights, contrary to Ankara's notorious refusals or reluctance.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           - "EU itself has set as a Criterium (for EU Enlargement) the "Good Neighborhood relations",  and their absence justifies the "Suspension" EU Negotiations, (f.ex. with Croatia), because of a Border dispute affecting the territorial integrity of an EU Member Country, stressed Slovenian President, Danilo Tuerk, CoE's Chairman in office (May - November 2009), speaking to Journalists in Strasbourg including "EuroFora".    

Questioned earlier what "consequences on EU's Enlargement policy" can have the "Ban on EU Membership Negotiations", imposed to Croatia, Tuerk replied that "this question comes down to the fulfillement of (EU) Criteria for membership. One has to look at each Candidate Country ., from the point of view whether it fullfils the Criteria that EU has set. One of them are Good Neighborhood Relations, I'd like to remind. And also, there are other factors, such as Justice, Home affairs, Rule of Law, and others".


    - "Now, ..Candidate Countries are at Different Levels of fulfillement of Criteria", he observed.

    - " Croatia is obviously the closest to that. I'm rather optimistic : I think that in the coming Months we'll have an opportunity to look at all these issues constructively and hopefully we'll be able to make progress". "My main concern, at this point, is the situation in Bosnia : We haven't seen enough progres domesticaly. We haven't seen enough during ..political parties within their country.We need a New Energy, a new energetic move towards the Candidature for EU membership. "Other (Western Balkan) Countries (Serbia, Montenegro, FYROM, Albania) have been making soaring Progress, and I think that they should be ready, in a few Years, for the Candidate status".

    - "As far as the Western Balkans are concerned, .. nobody should be left outside" the EU, Slovenian's President concluded, ommitting to mention Turkey's controversial EU bid.

    - "This process may be seen as Slow, but..  Slovenia has also has also been exposed to various "Booms of Slowness" in our accession period. But now we can say that the process was relatively quick, because changes which occur after becoming EU member, are quite large, and they require proper Preparations before the (EU) membership becomes a new factor, an impacting line for a new (EU) member country".
----------------------------

EU "Solidarity" ?
------------------------------   

Slovenian statements made some participants from certain 3rd Countries as FYROM, etc. claim that "the Principle of EU Solidarity" would "produce a.. rising European Union Nationalism (sic !), against Non-EU Countries", as they said, asking unhappy foreign countries to form a "bloc" to exert pressure on the EU...    

But Croatian President Stjepan Mesic dismissed that, supporting "EU Integration", "after the Economy also in Political" issues, as "the achievement" of our times. In EU there is "diversity, but it's United", he stressed, "EU has to be United so that it can become a central factor of Peace" also at the surrounding areas, he replied.

Speaking later exclusively to "EuroFora", the experienced twice President of Croatia, former President of the International "Non-Aligned" movement, denounced "Double Standards" in the way EU treats recently Croatia compared to Turkey :   

 - "I think that there shouldn't be Double Standards", stressed the Croatian President, in reply to a Question comparing the freeze of EU - Croatia talks, with the continuation of EU - Turkey talks, despite the fact that Croatia is an "unquestionably European country", while Turkey's EU bid is notoriously controversial.


    Mesic was reacting to the observation that, even if he confirmed his "respect of Refugees' Human Rights to return, etc. (See infra), nevertheless, EU talks are suspended with Croatia.. While for oher, controversial candidates, who refuse to respect Refugees' Rights to return, etc., as fex. Turkey does in occupied Cyprus and elsewhere, EU negotiations continue".

    - "I believe that Croatia's accession will confirm that all European Countries who fulfill all of the Conditions and achieve European Standards, have to join the EU. There shouldn't be any Double Standards", went on to add in reply President Mesic.

    In this relation, Croatia's President found "of paramount importance", CoE's "mechanisms enforcing ECHR's judgements"
    
    - "On Refugees and Displaced persons, the process will be completed only after the last person demanding to return will be allowed to do so !", President Mesic Croatia stressed earlier, setting a general standard of obvious importance also for otherr candidates, as f.ex. Turkey, often accused to exclude or heavily restrict Greek Cypriot Displaced persons' return to their Family Homes and ancestral land, provoke difficulties to Turkish-Kurd IDPs return to their home regions at the South-East, etc.

    Some "2.000 People are still reported Missing" in former Yugoslavia, for some Years, (as in Cyprus, modern Europe's oldest case, for 3 Decades. Nagorno-Karabach, Tcecnya in Russia, etc, more recently), and Investigations "will only be completed after establishing the fate of the last one of them", he added.
    
    Speaking earlier on "War Crimes", President Mesic stressed that "Leaders are responsible for (the) Wars (of the Past), not the People", and called against Impunity :  "Individuals have to be held Responsible for Crimes. International Penal Tribunals have to persecute those individuals", perpetrators of War Crimes, he underlined.

    Such statements naturally made Mesic rather popular at ECHR, whose President, French EuroJudge, Professor Jean-Paul Costa, looked particularly smiling when he welcomed him later on Wednesday afternoon, after Slovenian President Daniko Tuerk earlier this week.
