*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- Ankara's new acts These Days "again Fired up" an already "Hotspot" at unique EU Energy Resources in South-Eastern Mediterranean, Violating the Latest EU Summit's and even UNO's Resolutions, Denounced CoE's Pesident-in-office, Greek Minister for European Affairs, Militiadis Varvitsiotis, who was the invited Key-note Speaker at the Opening of CoE Parliametay Assembly's (PACE) Permanent Committee"s session (of Equal Status with its Full Plenaries), Today in Strasbourg.

+ This was the 1st move in a Long Series of various also Other CoE's Rejections of Akara's Latest Negative Activities, anew in Cyprus, even at Caucasus' Nagorno-Katabach, Against Opposition inside Turkey itself, etc., where CoE Assembl'y's MEPs quasi-Unanimously Rejected Turkish MP's failed Attempts to Block Public Debates, and/or Resolutions, Reports, etc., by Strasbourg's PanEuropean, 47 Member Countries-strong Organisation, (See Infra).

 - "Everybody has Felt, during the Past Few Months, the Tension that has occured in the South-Eastern Mediterranean", he reminded. And also, "Felt Relief after the Meeting of Greek and Turkish Foreign Ministers Dendias and Cavusogloy) Last Week in Bratislava, when they (had) Decided that the Preliminary Talks wlll Immediately Start", he added. speaking on "Recent Developments".

    + But, Meanwhile, "Unfortunately, a New (Turkey's) illegal "NAFTEX" was Issued Last Night (Sunday, 11.10.2020), that Announced illegal Survey, South of Castelorizo, on Greece's Continental Shelf, just 6,5 Nautical Miles from the Greek Shores, is an Action that, actualy  Fires up, again, the Situation in the Region", he Denounced.

    + Earlier, Ankara had Also Issued anOther NAFTEX for its "Barbaros" (sic !) Drilling Ship, illegaly inside EU Member Cyprus' EEZ, escorted by Turkish WarShips, from 15/9 up to 12/10 included...

 

    + "Together with the Opening of the Varoshe Seafront in Cyprus, these are 2 Signs, which occured during the Last Few Days, that (Turkey is) are actualy Violating International Law and all UN Security Council Resolutions", Varvitsioties pointed out.  

    +"Also, these Actions are Contravening the Latest Resolutions of the European Council (on October 1st), which reaffirm its Commitment to a Comprehensive Settlement of the Cyprus' Problem, within the UN Framework,  in accordance with the relevant UN Security Council Resolutions 550 (precisely on Famagusta) and 7089", (See : ...., etc)

    => - In Consequence,"Also this Time, We (CoE) have to Call on Turkey to Immediately Cease All illegal Actions, through which it is Systematicaly Undermining the Peace and Security in the Region", Cocluded CoE's President-in-office, speaking at PACE's Opening.

 - "EU has a Strategic General Interest for Stability in the Eastern Mediterranean", (where are Currently located the Biggest Potential Energy Resources of Europe, after the Decline of Northern Sea's deposits), have clearly Stressed from the outset EU's 27 Heads of State/Government, on October 1st Summit in Brussels.

    + From these and other Recent Events clearly results that "We (CoE) have Faced, during the Past Few Weeks, since our (CoE's) Last Meeting, several Incidents that actually show that there is a <<Heat>> in the Region, Not Only at the Periphery of Europe, But also Among Member States of the CoE", Varvitsiotis noted.

        - If on Belarus, "the situation has Not Dramaticaly Changed", until this October 12, nevertheless, on Nagorno-Karabah, "We (CoE) Welcomed a Cease-Fire", (after Many Soldiers and Civilian People Killed recently), with "Our full Commitment to a Peaceful Solution of the Problem", and "the Implication of the Minsk Group", (France, Russia, USA), he noted, inter alia.  

    + Later Today, 47 Member States (including Russia)-strong CoE's PanEuropean Parliamentary Assembly, Voted, with a Large Majoriy, in favour of Holding a Public Debate on the "Armed Conflict" in that area, clearly Rejecting a Turkish Attempt to Block any such Discussion in Strasbourg.

    => During the Long CoE's Debate which Followed, Many MEPs from Various Countries and Political Horizons, strongly Denounced, inter alia, particularly Turkey's Notorious move to Export at the Caucasus a lot of Foreign Armed Gangs of Islamist "Jihadist" Terrorists from Non-European Countries, such as Syria and/or Libya, etc.

    These Same Days, indeed, at least a Number of them (reportedly coming from Syria) already Started to Attack Russia's Chechnya Region, Killing several Poicemen, before they were subdued. And several COE's MEPs clearly Warned that Similar Risks may, sooner or later, Threaten even Directly the EU itself, in one way or another, (f.ex. at EU's External Borders in Greece, Italy or France, etc, Facing Turkey and/or Libya, etc).

    ++ Replying to a MEP's Question about what Europe should do in order to Stop the "Negative" role of "Turkey in too Many Conflicts" in the area : Syria, Iraq, Libya, Cyprus, Greece, Nagorno-Karabach, etc., Varvitsiotis, naturaly, did not deny those Facts, but reminded that, as CoE's Chair, he was obliged to keep a quasi-Unanimous stance.


Therefore, on this point, as Minister in charge of European Affairs, he referred to a relevant Today's Statement, at EU's Foreign Ministers' meeting in Brussels, of his collegue, Greece's Foreign Minister, Mr. Dendias, that, Indeed, "in All Problematic Situations throughout the Area, (Cyprus, Syria, Iraq, Libya, Greece, Irregular Migrants/Mass Asylum Seekers, Eastern Mediterranean energy, Nagorno-Karabach, etc), we Find Always Turkey ! And, that's the Problem..."


------------------------------------------------------

 

    +++ Turkey was clearly Isolated Also in 2 Other CoE Assembly's Votes, where a Big Majority of MEPs also Rejected Ankara MPs' Attempts to Hinder even anOther Debate, (this time with Resolution) on a "New Crack Down" against "Opposition"'s Human and elementary Democraic Rights inside Turkey :

 - "Not Only Aggressing several Neighbouring Countries, Turkey Also Oppresses those People who dare Contest such acts, Inside its own Population", Critical CoE's MEPs denounced.

+ AnOther Failed Ankara's attempt vainly searched to Block a CoE Assemly's projected Move on the Recent illegal Opening of Occupied Famagusta "Ghost Town"'s Seafront, in a Provocative Violation of UN SC's Resolutin 550, which clearly Reserves that Protected Area for the Return of its Lawful Owners among the Original, Over-Millenary Population of Greek Cypriot Refugees, obliged to leave since the 1974 Ankara's Military Invasion and still persisting Armed Occupation of the Northern Territories of Cyprus. PACE's MEPs, indeed, Also Voted, quasi-Unanimously to Examinate that Topical Issue of Both Political and Human Rights' value.

Europe brings Development dynamics at Global Crisis' Summit debates

eudevdays_400



    Thanks also to EU Parliament Plenary's Strasbourg gathering, EU, during the French EU Presidency, managed to integrate the Development issues at Top Debates on the World Summit against the Economic Crisis  :

    For the 1st time, it's at the same moment with the Wahington G-20 Summit that EU Commissioner Louis Michel co-organizes here with the French EU Presidency parallel mega-events for the "European Development Days", starting from this Week-End and concluding at the eve of a landmark debate in EU Parliament, next Tuesday, on the outcome and follow-up of the Wash.DC Summit.

    EU and its Member Countries are the biggest donor for UNO's Millenium Development goals, with 56%, but the 27 are currently struggling to develop a collective leadership in Economic and social matters, that the 15 of EuroGroup (together with the UK and other countries interested to be usefully associated) are starting to spearhead, after the initial success of the 1st EuroZone Heads of State and Government Summit, of October 12 in Paris, according to a New Repport by MEPs Pervench Beres and Werner Langen on the 10 Years of EuroZone (1999-2009) debated Monday and voted on Tuesday.

    EU, CoE and World personalities will interact here with Heads of State or Government from Tanzania (African Union chair), Burkina Faso (CEDEAO + UEMOA chair), Zimbabwe (MDC chair), Madagascar, Haiti, Mali, Benin, etc, and some 3000 participants from the Economy, Civil Society, Media, Experts, etc, while the City of Strasbourg adds various related Citizen-events.

    Opened by French Secretary of State Alain Joyandet on November 15, and followed by a video-contact with EU Commission President Jose Baroso on the Washington Summit Sunday, the EDD are concluded by Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner on Monday, while their main concerns cannot be ignored in the Debate that EU Parliament will hold on Tuesday, (followed by a Resolution on Wednesday), jointly on the G-20 Washington Summit and on EU Commission's work program for 2009.

    A practical opportunity for EU to reflect where it's better to spend EU Citizens' money...

    The move is prolonged in several Paris' meetings of EU chair, French President Nicolas Sarkozy with African Heads of State leading regional Organizations, as from Tanzania (A.U. Chair), Burkina Faso (chair of Economic African organizations), Togo, etc, (in parallel with a Ministerial EU - African Union conference in Ethiopia, followed by a visit to Tchad), logically concluded by a meeting with Robert Zoellic President of the World Bank.

    Many have already warned that an eventual aggravation of Development's Gap accross the World might become much more dangerous to Global Economy, Security, Values and Quality of Life, than Global Warming and/or other, even more serious challenges...

    Will they find an innovative and voluntarist way to really deal with the Development Gap, which might also contribute to help face the Economic Crisis ?

Polls

2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
