 pe_t_resolution_missing_400

*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- Just After the German Elections (but still Before the Austrian a.o.), suddenly, an Expected, officially Announced, and even initialy Registered, EU Parliament's draft Resolution on the "Hot" Issue of Turkey, litteraly ..."Disappeared", out of sight, withOut Any clear Explanation, and Sine Die...


A very Critical MEPs' Debate on the Massive Oppressions inside Turkey and its provocative relations to Europe had been organized during the Last EU Parliament's full Plenary Session in Strasbourg, back on September 2017, i.e. shortly Before the crucial German Elections, (where Criticism on Ankara had Topped even the 2 Leading Candidates' TV Public Discussion around the ways to End Turkey's controversial and UnPopular EU bid), See : ... .


As it had been Decided, and officially Anounced then, in Conclusion of this Debate, a Resolution on EU - Turkey future relations would be Voted and Adopted during the Next EU Parliament's full Plenary Session in Strasbourg, i.e. on "October I".


This was even Registered at least in a Draft Agenda for the present Session, which, indeed, mentioned the Vote of a Resolution on the "Relations between the EU and Turkey", initially Scheduled for Wednesday, 4 October 2017, (according to EU Parliament's relevant Official Documents updated on 27 September 2017).

But, suddenly, at the latest since a Subsequent Draft Agenda, Dated from Wednesday 29 September 2017, ... Any Mention (even the slightest) of that matter, ... Disappears from EU Parliament's new Documents !


I.e., obviously, Something happened Before EU Parliament's Plenary session's Opening Day in Strasbourg, on Monday October 2, and, therefore, Before and WithOut any Transparent, Public Debate about that Issue, (which was Not Mentioned at all during the previous regular Press Briefing of Monday early Afternoon, here).


+ Moreover, astonishingly, even several among EU Parliament's most Experienced MEPs, (questioned now by "Eurofora"), apparently Ignored what really happened with that, and why...


++ Surprisingly, even some Top MEPs, among the Leaders of mainstream Political Groups, said to "Eurofora" that it was Not at all certain that such a Resolution might, at least, pass for Vote at the Next, "October II" Plenary Session in Strasbourg, after two Weeks Time. Not even for a Much Later Date, f.ex. on November !

=> When such a Big Flagship "PackBoat" Issue suddenly Vanishes withOut any explanation, inside EU Parliament, and Contrary to previous Official Decisions, repeated more than bis (Comp. Supra), then, inevitably, Legitimate Questions are raised.

Notoriously, finally Anodynous, purely Verbal Criticism of Turkey, withOut any concrete Consequence on Ankara's controversial and unpopular EU bid, has been already Used, f.ex. Before the Recent Dutch Elections, with obvious aims :

Very Mediatic Declarations with a so-called "Criticism" of Turkey's policies, (and with  had a blatant Complicity by Ankara's Government, which multiplied Verbal Provocations, etc), had suddenly Surfaced, then, in the Netherlands, until its Governing "Liberal" Party and others Limited the Loss of Votes in the Elections, after which, ...Nobody spoke again about such matters...

Something Similar Surfaced also during the German Elections of September 24, when even the Socialist Candidate, former Long-Time MEP and f. EU Parliament's President Martin Schultz, in his TV Debate with Chancellor Angie Merkel, from the ChristianDemocrats/EPP, suddenly made a Spectacular "U - Turn", asking to "Stop" the EU - Turkey controversial and unpopular "Acession" Negotiations as such : I.e., a stance that Schulz had Never adopted before, despite many occasions, during his long EU career (i.e. practicaly since 1994)... Such a Move, perhaps, Limited the Loss of Voters towards the Right by the Socialists, who Otherwise, obviously Risked to Fall even Lower than 20%, at the "1O and something" category, (i.e. Similar to AfD's 13%), while the ChristianDemocrats/EPP, (Traditionally Sceptical against Turkey's EU bid) remained at least Steady on 33%+.

Nowadays, it might obviously be the on-going Coalition-searching Negotiations, including, in Addition to the CDU and Liberals, also the "Greens", who, this time, pushed at the forefrTurkish-origin and Turkey-Born Zem Ozdemir (an Initially "Socialist" fan, until a series of Financial, Sex, a.o. Scandals, which eliminated his initial Mentor, Rudolf Sharping on 2002, after, however, having pushed on EU's shoulders the Weight of Expensive and Clumsy, Problematic "A400M" Military Transport Airplane, backed mainly by Turkey and the UK).

In this and Many Other Cases, it's obvious tha the Medias of the Establishment are recently seeking to Boost the Impression of a lot of so-called "Good Turks", in Contrast with "Bad" Erdogan, as if some of them were pre-destinated to take over, in one way or another, after an eventual departure of Erdogan, in a possibe attempt to Limit the Turkish GeoPolitical and Cultural issue into a Merely Personal one, Open to any Opportunist Manipulation, at one or another moment....

But, then, at least, ...Austria (scheduled to Vote in National Elections on October 15) does not matter so much ?....

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.
