*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....

    - "Europe must be liberated from this undermining "wooden talk" of a "unique thought" which hampers democratic debates", stressed incoming EU Chairman, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, speaking to Journalists after his official meeting with EU Commission's President, Jose Barroso, at Elysee Palace in Paris

    - "It's precisely because there are not enough Debates, that EU hasn't managed yet to make it clear to European citizens what is really at stake", he added, in an obvious reference to the latest Irish "No" in 2008, after a long series of similar, unprecedented events, from the 1st Majority Abstention to EU Parliament's Elections in 1999, repeated in 2004, to the Dutch and French "No" in 2005, etc.

          In fact, "there is no time to lose for Europe, and that's why we decided to start the French EU Presidency right away, from the first day", he explained, on France's exceptional choice to schedule the usual meeting with EU Commission from the 1st day of the 1st month, instead of the 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th or even 10th or 11th, as it had been done by others in the Past..    


    - "This is not an easy period, but we shall act with determination, while also listening to Citizens' views", he promised.

    Sarkozy's move came shortly before his opening Speech, next week in EU Parliament in Strasbourg, for the first Public Debate on the Priorities of the French EU Presidency (July - December 2008), and that's one of the reasons for which he significantly opened his EU Council's Chairmanship by welcoming at Elysee palace EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert Poettering at first..

    The incoming EU Chairman was replying to Press Questions about rumours that controversial British EU Commissioner on Trade, Mandelson, was alone to drop an invitation to have a working Diner at Elysee palace, together with all other EU Commissioners and the French Government, only because he would have been upset for some critical points made earlier by President Sarkozy in defense of European Agriculture vis-a-vis its Foreign competitors.

    But, as smiling Sarkozy played down Mandelson's reported refusal to debate, saying that he had to visit Marseille for a Ministerial meeting on Trade the next morning, and that "all our British friends are always welcome to taste a nice diner" in France, perhaps at another occasion..

    - "It's urgent to win anew the trust of the People" : Lately, "the European ideal lost its momentum. Since several years, whenever Citizens are questioned on Europe, they react with reserves : They even have .. a tendency to reply "NO".. After this 3rd "No" of a People in some years, there is an Urgency to convince", added French Prime Minister Francois Fillon, after a meeting earlier the same day of all Ministers with EU Commissioners, followed by an interview with Barroso

    "According to recent Polls, only 30% of French people believe that the European construction is a source of hope. It's only a poll, but we all now quite well, that, since 2005, it's dangerous to neglect these alarming signals, as it would be dangerous to treat with contempt the Irish "No", Fillon warned.

    "We all have a common duty to prove to the European Citizens who have doubts, that EU is more useful, more necessary, than ever" : And "that EU can take decisions needed in order to respond to European or Global challenges", the Prime Minister concluded.

    - "We believe, together with President Sarkozy, that EU should open debates on all issues of direct, concrete interest to Citizens", confirmed later to EuroFora the Head of France's governing party (UMP), Patrick Devedjan, after his speech to the European People's party (EPP) Study Days in Paris (2 - 4 July 2008).

    He didn't deny that one of them is Turkey : - "Public Opinion in France is very much unfavorable to Turkey's EU bid, and President Sarkozy has said that several times", he told EuroFora.

    From European Central Bank's controversial policies on Euro's value, to EU Enlargement Strategy, etc., issues of obvious importance to EU Citizens will be plenty, next week in EU Parliament in Strasbourg, before President Sarkozy launches the debates on EU 2008 French chairmanship's priorities on Thursday.

Polls
