*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- For the 1st Time so Bluntly, Turkey attempted to Block from the Start UNO's New Effort for an Agreement on Cyprus' ReUnification, these Days at Nearby Geneva, (where UNO, Greece and Turkey, were joined by Representatives from the 5 UN SC Permanent Members), by immediately Launching a series of Provocative and Pressing Demands, obviously pushing towards Secession of Cyprus' Northern Territories, still Invaded and Occupied by Ankara's Military since 1974, and risking to make the situation even More Shaky in Europe and elsehere, nowadays, just after new US "Socialist" President Biden's recent Denonciations against Russian President Putin, and while Ukraine's leadership reportedly asked to Drop the 2015 Minsk Peace Deal for its pro-Autonomy Eastern Regions, (etc).

Instead of UNO's Official Long-Standing position for Peaceful ReUnification of Cyprus, in a bizonal Federation implementing Human Rights, now the Turkish side Revendicated "Sovereignity" for the Occupied Territories, and Only mere "Cooperation" between "2" different "States", of "equal International Status", (sic) , etc., even Before any UN Talks. might start, i.e., in a kind of unilateraly issued "Ultimatum".


The UNSG Guterres naturally Rejected that Turkish claim as Incompatible with his official UN Mandate on peaceful reUnification of Cyprus, and declared these Geneva Talks prematuraly closed. But he Kept a Chance for the UN Process to Resume asap. if the parties agree accordingly during the Next few Months.

In Parallel, many eyed towards UNO's Security Council's possible Reactions to that highly Controversial Turkish unilateral move, given Also the Fact that, Nowadays, its rotating Monthly Presidency is held by Related Important Countries, now Vietnam and Afterwards China, followed by Esthonia and France on July 2021, etc, (i.e., inter alia, also considered to be Against Secessionism in general, as well as in Favor of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, which notoriously affects the Natural Resources' apects).

+ Cyprus' President Anastasiades accepted to continue Supporting UNSG's persisting Efforts on Cyprus' (peaceful reunification), But Warned Turkey that, in case of More Provocations, (f.ex. at the South-Eastern Mediterranean Energy issue), he would Stop such a cooperation with Ankara.

Cyprus' side notoriously Hoped that, after the Latest Deadlock of UN Talks, back on 2017 at Crans Montana, where Human Rights' aspects were reportedly examined further than usual, But Turkey Refused to definitively Drop its controversial Claim for Unilateral Military Intervention, in the Future of the Island, Ankara might have become more Cooperative in Negotiating a less Bumpy ReUnification of this strategicaly located EU Member Country, according to UN SC pertinent Resolutions.

Meanwhile, a Bi-Communal and Bi-Zonal Federation had been Accepted by Cyprus' side Previously, practicaly counter-Balanced by a parallel Acceptance of Refugees/Displaced persons' (mainly Greek Cypriots, Maronites, etc) Human Rights, so that a Partition (traditionaly pushed by Turkish Extremists) would be Avoided.

+Meanwhile, in Addition, as Cyprus' President Nicos Anastasiades, reminded Today in the UN informal Talks at neighbouring Switzerland, Both Special Rules on Votes' Rights for the Turkish-Cypriot Community, as well as the Opening of some SeaPorts and/or Airports in the Occupied Territories under UN or EU Control, together with Measures to preserve the Turkish Cypriot community's part at any eventual Exploitation of Cyprus' Natural Resources, (mainly in Gas), had been prepared.

    Recently, EU Member States Cyprus and Greece, together with Neighbouring Egypt, Israel, and other Countries, have notoriously Organized Various Joint Projects for Exploration, Exploitation and Direct Transport to the rest of the EU, of all or part of the Immense Oil/Gas Resources existing at the South-Eastern Mediterranean Sea. Illegal and often Brutal Disputes by Turkey's WarShips were Repeatedly Condemned by the EU, Russia, USA, and others, while the EU recently prepared a Carrot-Stick Alternatif package for June 2021 to decide by EU Heads of State, vis a vis Turkey, according to its Behavior. France spearheads such Plans, followed by Italy, Spain, Portugal, etc., but Germany, Austria and Others have also clear European Interests there.

    Many Expect, Now, sooner or later, some kind of Sanction, also by the UN, given these Days' Negative stance of the Turkish side, which Rejected all UN SC Resolutions' Basis elaborated for the Solution of Cyprus' Issue and Blocked Geneva UN Talks (Comp. Supra). UN SG Guterres indicated now that an Important role, in this regard, would be played, in real practice, particularly by those UN SC Permanent Members who will Chair the NY-Headquartered body Nowadays, (in Addition to the UK's Traditional interest, whose MFA was Present in Geneva this time).

Among them, 1st arrives China, from May, followed mainly by France on July, India and Ireland on August and September 2021. Beijing, naturaly has No Interest at all to Any kind of Secession Threats, (given f.ex. the  Exploitation often made in the Past around Ughurs and/or Thibet, etc), while, on the Contrary, it's Basicaly Favorable to the Valorisation of Islands' role at UNO's Convention for the Internantional Law of the Sea, (as indicated also Spectacularly, nowadays, the superb and succesful Launch of the 1st BuildingBlock for a New International Space Station, from an area of China's Sea, where anOther Space Station has been Build Recently even on a much Smaller Island)...

 

France has already proposed Cooperation on Space Projects to China, particularly during a Recent Meeting between Presidents Xi and Macron, (symbolicaly at the Mediterranean Sea and in a superb Villa inspired by Ancient Greek Culture : See ..., etc), while Both Paros and Beizing had been, at Various Times in the Past, Criticized by some competitors for having tried to Develop InHabited Islands arounds the Sea of China. More Recently, "Eurofora" was Informed in Paris, (where we were Invited, as also Other EU/CoE Journalists, Universitarians, Scientists, etc, by the French Ministry of Defense), about France's current wish to Contribute to the Security of such Asia - Europe Sea Links, in possible Cooperation also with EU Partner Germany, etc.

 

On the Contrary, Noone in Europe seems to wish to stir Any Kind of Secessionist trends, as those that Turkey just pushed against Cyprus, Neither in Russia, nor Corsica, Britany, Alsace or Loraine, etc in France, Catalonia or Basque country in Spain, Western Thrace or Macedonia in Greece, many Muslim Villages in Northern Macedonia, Belgium's complicated situation, even UK's Scotland, Wells and/or Northern Ireland, etc., Obviously prefering a Peaceful and Democratic, National Stability....

*Paris/ACM/12 October 2008/-

When Europeans really feel a vital need to urgently launch common replies to challenging World Crisis, as the present Financial turmoil of Global Markets, they forge new decision-making tools and new dynamics :

The 1st in History EuroZone Heads of State and Government Summit, organized in Paris at the invitation of French President, and current EU chair, Nicolas Sarkozy, with the participation of 15 national leaders and EU institutions' chairmen, partly enlarged to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, after a highly symbolic duo with German Chancelor Angie Merkel, at General De Gaulle's birth-village, 50 Years after he welcomed there former German chancellor Adenauer (1958-2008), may have not one, but two results :

- The first, and more urgent, was to launch an "ambitious", "coherent", and "efficient" common European movement, able to stimulate "solutions" to the World Economic Crisis, as Sarkozy anounced from the outset : State Garantees (to new Bank debts up to 5 years), fresh Capital input (f.ex. by buying shares), support to distressed banks, (while also restructuring them), incite the European Central Bank to facilitate commerial bills europe-wide, etc.

"Acting swiftly", from tomorrow, national measures will quantify all these targets, with coordinated actions from all EuroZone's Governments : France, Germany, Italy and others, decided to anounce, at the same time, such concrete measures, according to agreements that we have already made all together, revealed Sarkozy at the final Press Conference, flanked by EuroZone's chairmen : EuroGroup's Jean-Claude Juncker, and Central European Bank's Jean-Claude Truchet, as well as EU Commission's Jose Baroso, to solemnly stress the will to find common European solutions.

- "United and Determined, all EuroZone's Countries will act to prove that Citizens can Trust" the Economy, Sarkozy concluded. If we attract also all EU's 27 countries, Wednesday in Brussels, then we can coordinate action with our American Friends at a Global level, he anounced.

- "With this new Toolbox, we do not want to serve Bankers, but to work for Europe and its Citizens' interests", added Juncker.

- "For the moment, we want to act urgently to regulate the Crisis. But the time will come when those responsible for this, will have to account for their actions. Yes to real Capitalism, No to Speculators. Those who abused, will face sanctions, Sarkozy warned.


Need stimulates activities which create new organs, say biologists, and Gordon Brown, compatriot of Spencer, the famous bio-Historian, would certainly not deny that, after his surprise visit to EuroZone's Summit in Paris, which attracted him one hour more than scheduled...

Decisions include also the creation of a Crisis-management European mechanism, which "requires constant Monitoring", as well as strengthening Economic policy cooperation between EuroZone's countries.

Sarkozy will be judged by History not just by the immediate Economic results, expected at the end of this week's decision-making proces at National and EU level, but also by the more far-reaching consequences at the aftermath of this Historic EuroZone 1st Summit : Will it succeed to become a precursor forging a New era in European institution's revitalization ?

Significantly, the French President sat, during discussions, between German Chancelor Merkel, and British Prime Minister Brown, facing the chairmen of EuroGroup, Juncker, ECB : Truchet, and EU Commission, Baroso, with Prime Ministers of Spain, Zapatero (a hot partisan of EuroZone's Summit) at his right side, and Italy's Berlusconi, at his left, surrounded by Austrian, Belgian, Cyprus', Finland's, Greece's, and Ireland's leaders, as well as Slovakia's, Slovenia's, Portugal's, Netherlands', Malta's and Luxembourg's leaders.

Meanwhile, those who tabled for a rift between French and German positions were faced with a smiling Merkel at De Gaulle-Adenauer's meeting place, a sunny Saturday morning, and a particularly active-looking Merkel inside the French Presidential Palace at Elysee's gardens on Sunday, (as happy few photographers discovered)..

- "De Gaulle's hilltop, at Colombey-les-2-Eglises, gave an astonishing overview to a huge landscape, entirely surrounded by splendid Nature, as far as eyes could see", said to EuroFora an obviously charmed German Journalist.

She was describing Saturday's inauguration of a High-Tech Memorial close to the Historic Giant Double Lorraine's Cross, built by famous Novelist Andre Malraux, to perpetuate the Memory of his famous call for "Resistance" to NAZI, and his vision for the creation of New Institutions and Franco-German reconciliation, to foster Europe's role in the World, also for the Future.
