*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- UNO's Secretary General Ban Ki Moon is due to focus on Arab Democracies in Strasbourg, before discussing a wider spectrum of topical issues in Paris, particularly Syria, but also several others, said in substance his Spokesman and UNO's Press Director, Martin Nesirky to "EuroFora", at the eve of his exceptional arrival in France this Sunday for a 3 Days-trip, (which exceptionaly doesn't pass via UNO's European Headquarters at nearby Geneva).

 (UNO SG Ban Ki Moon + Martin Nesirky at Geneva HQ, July 2011, announcing his 2nd Mandate overall Strategy)
 
Practically starting on Sunday, mainly by a meeting with CoE's Secretary General Thornbjorn Jagland, a former Prime Minister/Foreign Minister from Norway, who, in fact, intends also to discuss topical matters concerning Syria, based on a fresh double mandate both by CoE's Committee of Ministers and by CoE's Parliamentary Assembly, as he said yesterday to "Eurofora"  (comp.  Jagland's reply to our question, at a previous NewsReport :http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/coesgjaglandtoeuroforaonsyria.html ), etc.

Even if it's just the 2nd time that Ban Ki Moon comes to Strasbourg, during his two successive Mandates, (see his Replies to "EuroFora"s Questions at EU Parliaments' Press Conference, on October 2010 : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/unosgoncyprus.html ), nevertheless, reportedly, this preliminary event might not receive more Press Publicity than, perhaps, a Photo-op., and/or an eventual Read out, unless it's decided otherwise at the last minute.

But the main event, which is the official reason for UNO's Secretary General's visit to Strasbourg, where he was invited by the CoE in order to be the Keynote Speaker at the official opening of the 1st "World Forum for Democracy", to which he will be welcomed by CoE Parliamentary Assembly's President, French MEP Jean-Claude Mignon, together with Heads of State/Governement from Morocco and Albania (current CoE's Committee of Ministers' rotating Chair), as well as French and German Ministers of EU affairs and Finance, Cazeneuve and Schauble, respectively, added to various other Politicians, Experts, Civil Society Representatives, etc., is due to be at the Focus on Monday Morning and Noon.

Indeed, "Arab Democracies", and other such relevant, recent trends at Europe's Neighborhood, naturally included at WFD's 2012 official Agenda, are due to be one of the main issues at the table of Ban Ki Moon's public activities in Strasbourg, as his Spokesman, Martin Nesirky confirmed to "EuroFora" for this 1st part of his visit to France.

On the contrary, during his subsequent meetings with the French Foreign Minister Fabius, Prime Minister Ayrault, and President Hollande, at Paris' Quai d'Orsay, Matignon and Elysee palace, respectively, from Monday Evening up to Tuesday, before returning later-on to New York, Ban Ki Moon is expected to discuss with the French Government a longer list of Topical issues, going well beyond the obvious issue of recent developments in Syria, (and exchange of Bombs with Turkey, Al Quaida's Mass Terrorist attacks in Alepo, near the Turkish Borders, where most Entry Posts had been taken over by Rebels and the FSA hosted in Turkey until now, etc.).

+ Paris' Ban Ki Moon discussions could, indeed, include, in addition to Syria, also f.ex. Subsaharian Africa and Mali (where another Terrorist Group linked to Al-Quaeda is sucpected for Kidnapings, etc, as in Alep, in Syria : Comp. above), RDC, Sudan,  etc, and various other Topical issues, as UNO Secretary General's Spokesman, Martin Nesirky, told "EuroFora".


 But, as things stand at this point, Nesirky "doubts" that differend on-going issues, such as Cyprus, etc., might, eventually be discussed during UNO's Head visits to the CoE in Strasbourg, and/or  to the French Government in Paris.

However, CoE's Committee of Ministers has just examined, a Week earlier in Strasbourg, for the 1st time after long postponements, the crucial issue of Greek Cypriot Refugees/Displaced Persons' Human Rights to return to their Family Homes and Ancestral Land; as well as for their Houses and Private Properties to be given back to them, after long decades of illegal usurpation in the Occupied Territories of Cyprus, held by Ankara's Army since the 1974 Military Invasion and Occupation, according to ECHR's Judgements and well-established Case-law of 1996-2002, etc. + Moreover, the EU Commission in Brussels is currently finalizing its 2012 Annual Reports on EU Enlargement and on Turkey's efforts to meet the EU Standards, where various Crucial choices, have, reportedly, to be made at the last minute before the official Pubication Day, which has been fixed for Wednesday, October 10, i.e. practically when Ban Ki Moon will have just concluded his 7 -9 October EU/CoE+Paris visits and contacts, both public and discreet...

 After all, even the recent Tragic Developments on Syria, (with various Deadly Bombings at the Syro-Turkish border, Military Threats, etc), were obviously pushed to the Limelight, precisely during these crucial Days, by Turkey itself, (including by Turkish Foreign Minister Davutoglou Phoning to UNO's Secretary General at New York, etc), so that EU - Turkey related issues, (notoriously crucial for EU Citizens since the 2005 "No" to EuroReferenda in France and the Netherlands, followed by Ireland, etc., almost 1 Year before the forthoming EU Parliament Elections at 2014), don't really seem to be excluded a prioriéééééééé

* 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.

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.
