*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- The UN are Aware, Interested and carefully Following the Latest Developments on Turkey's GunBoat Bullying against EU Countries' efforts to Develop recent Oil/Gas Findings in EU Member State Cyprus' EEZone, (including EU-supported Plans for Direct Energy Transports to Europe's Center, probably in Cooperation with Israel's and/or Egypt's adjacent Off Shore Findings), and will Discuss, Starting already from this Evening, what should be done Now after the Decision made Today by Turkey to provocatively Extend even Further its Military Blockade, (with 5 WarShips against a Peaceful Drilling Ship), which risks to have Snowball effects in a Delicate Region at a Crucial Moment, instead of Working for International Law and Peace, the enDangering of which, as a matter of General Principle, could Not let the International Organisation indifferent and/or completely "Out" of the game.

That's what Results, in Substance, from a Brief but Topical and Interesting Phone Conversation with the Experienced, Long-Time UNO's Secretary General's Press Spokesman, Stephan Dujarric, and "Eurofora", on that "Hot" Issue, made while various Intense Political, Diplomatic and other Exceptional Top Contacts were going on in and around Cyprus, at the Eve of EU Heads of State/Government's Summit, later this week in Brussels, where that Topical Issue, of obvious General European Interest, (even Global, given the Estimated Total Volume of Gas Resources in that Area), will be raised.


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


UNOSG's Press Spokesman immediately indicated to "Eurofora" that he was, indeed, Aware of the Recent, and still on-going Incident of 5 Turkish Military Boats Blocking an Italian ENI Company Oil/Gas off shore Exploration Ship (also for the French TOTAL Company) from reaching, as scheduled, its destination inside Cyprus' EEZ.

"Eurofora" reminded the Fact that the directly involved EU Countries reportedly Waited for the Date of February 22, when Turkey's relevant anouncement was Expriring, in order to proceed, even with Delay, to their scheduled Work.


But, Suddenly, an Earlier than Expected, New Anouncement made by the Turkish Government, on the Contrary, Threatened to Extend even Further its GunBoat Military Bullying against the European Countries' Peaceful efforts for Direct Energy supplies at their own Territories, by Issuing even anOther, even more Provocative "Navtex" message, Asking to Block the all the Area concerned up to Mid-March, (i.e. , notoriously Too Late for ENI's Exploration Ship, which reportedly had to go soon to Morocco for another scheduled job).

=> Therefore, Cyprus and Greece, as well as others, were Now preparing Fast Diplomatic a.o. Moves, in order to Face the latest Turkish Violent Blockade inside EU's Area (as also ENI's CEO has just Reminded, in Press Statements made Earlier in neighbouring Egypt). Among others, f.ex., this could be raised at the imminent EU Summit in Brussels, later this same Week, and EU States might, inter alia, even Block any Turkey's dealing with the EU, as a Political Response to Ankara's GunBoat Miilitary Threats.

However, such a Series of Events, might, at least in the Short term, make Turkey even more Nasty, in a Critical Moment at a Sensitive Region of the World, and, according to the Turkish Reactions, eventually have "SnowBall" repercussions also at a Wider area, Dangerous for Stability and Peace.


Sine the UNO had a Traditional Mission to try to work always for Respect of International Law and Peace, while, in Addition, the New Secretary General, Antonio Guttierez, had notoriously Focused, already since his recent Election, on the Key Role of Peace-Making instead of Conflicts Nowadays, wasn't there something that the UN could do, in order to Prevent a probable "SnowBall" effect of Turkey's GunBoat bullying against European Countries, like Italy, France and Cyprus, Peacefully working to Develop their own Energy Resources, which, in this case, were notoriously Linked also to Neighbouring Israel and Egypt, whose adjacebnt Oil/Gas deposits were probably linked, and with whom Cyprus cooperated, including for EU-Supported Plans for Direct Energy Transport to Europe's Center ?


Cyprus' President, Nicos Anastasiades, had just Won the Elections at the island, with a Program in favour of Advancing further in New Efforts for a Peaceful ReUnification of the Country, with an Agreed Solution of Cyprus' Problem, through Talks under UNO's auspices, but Ankara's Gun-point Bullying obviously Risks to Push such Prospects far Away.


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


- In Reply, Dujarric immediately said that he was "going to Speak to some People ToNight" on that issue, but Advised to try to get back to it with him, "Tomorrow Morning".


 - He didn't Deny that, as a matter of Principle, "the UN canNot stay completely Out of such Issues", as "Eurofora" queried.


- "No, No !", spontanesouly reacted in agreement the Experienced UN SG's Press Spokesman.


- But, in fact, "I canNot Talk withOut, previously, Speaking to some People", he carefully explained.


 - For that purpose, he Significantly pointed "UpStairs", (i.e. at UNO Headquarters' Upper Floors for the Secretary General and his Senior Officers' team).


 - And he added that he Needed to "Know More" on that concrete matter, (before, eventually, making a full and Pubic Press Reply to "Eurofora"'s Topical Question).


- This included, further, "Checking with other People, also in Cyprus", as he went on to say.


- Anyway, "I appreciate that you called", Kindly added UNO SG's Press Spokesman for Tonight.

* EuroCorps, EU defence's etat major, which has just celebrated 15 years of age (1993 - 2008), is young enough to feel enthousiasm for missions to guarantee Human Rights, Peace and reconcilation : Strasbourg's Historic Symbols, but also maturing fast, (particularly under the current French EU Presidency), in order to prepare potentialy important developments in 2009 :

- "EUROCORPS" is a "unique tool" for "a Modern Europe", jointly managed by participating Nations without anyone deciding for others", to "support their efforts to promote Reconciliation, Peace and Human Rights' Values, which identify today's European ideal, with its Symbol-City : Strasbourg", stressed its Chief, Spanish General Pedro PITARCH, in a popular ceremony for the 15th Anniversary of the European Army Corps, at its Headquarters.

- "Today, we are ready and able to fullfil any Peace-keeping Mission may be decided by the Political leadership, since we can deploy up to 60.000 soldiers and/or other agents, mainly in land, but in coordination with Sea and Air operarions", (even to build vital Infrastructures, demining, keep public order, facilitate Elections, etc), said to EuroFora EUROCORPS' Spokesman and Press Director, Colonel Raul SUEVOS.

- "If there is an Agreement with the framework Nations, EUROCORPS could certainly contribute to guarantee manifold aspects of Peace setllements", told us recently General PITARCH.

EU Parliament asked, Summer 2008 in Strasbourg, " to place Eurocorps as a standing force under EU command", and "invited all (EU) Member States to contribute to it".

France, Germany, Belgium, Spain, and Luxembourg (participating with Funds, Telecoms and Officers), are EUROCORPS"' main "Framework Nations", due to be joined by Italy in 2009. Greece and Austria participate as "Contributing Nations", while Poland decided to upgrade its role. Turkey has liaison Officers for NATO relations, and even USA decided to send Officers to Strasbourg on 2009.

Observers await with impatience also the outcome of NATO's April 2009 Summit in Strasbourg in order to have a better view of EuroCorps' future.
