@Strasbourg/CoE/Angelo Marcopolo/- Experienced, Twice Elected President of PanEuropean CoE's Local and Regional Authorities' Congress (CLRAE), and currently vice-President of its Biggest Group, that of ChristianDemocrats/EPP, as well as a Leading Politician in the Modern History of  Austria's Tirol Region, Herwig Van Staa, speaking to "Eurofora" in Strasbourg, but shortly after the Austian Elections of last Sunday, (See:...), clearly confirmed that, in his view too, a probable New Government Coalition, between the Frontrunner ChristianDemocrats/EPP and the Rightists of FPO party, could Work Well.


He also speculated that the Leader of the Austrian ChristianDemocrat/EPP party, Sebastien Kurz, former Foreign Minister, Number 1 Winner of the Elections, who is normally due to become the next Prime Minister, might, perhaps, find enough Time to participate at the EPP Summit; Tomorrow in Brussels.


But he might, eventually, leave the Foreign Ministry to someone else, Herwig Van Staa added cautiously.


+Meanwhile, Austria is being notoriously a Key for both EU - Russia and EU - USA relations, concerning the latter, in addition to (Austrian origin famous Actor) Scharzenegger's previous California Governorship, nowadays, New US Ptesident Don Trump's Wife, North America's First Lady, Mellania's Birthplace, Slovenia, has also Historic and Cultural links to the Austrian Tirol Region, where is located, inter alia, an Ancien Christian Shrine, visited by a Slovenian Delegation as soon as the Country had become independent, he reminded.


Van Staa is also General Rapporteur of CoE's CLRAE for the Fight against Corruption, and one of his more Speciic Reports (which compose a Series), on the Specific Area of Public Procuement, is scheduled to be Debated and Voted by the PanEuropean body's Plenary Session during the Next Few Days in Strasbourg.

        Kouchner stressed that "Humanitarian and Political considerations can co-exist in real practice, if each one respects its independence", and, speaking to EuroFora, underlined his intention to have special representatives in "Strategic" locations, creating a "Network", open particularly to European cooperation.

        - "We must fill the gap in Europe's Civilian and Military capacities", declared earlier at Matignon, French Prime Minister Francois Fillon, while EU Commissioners met with their counterparts among French Ministers.

        This point was at the focus of European People Party's "'Study Days" in Paris, from 2 to 4 July 2008, entitled  : "For a Safer Europe", with a central Debate on EU's Security and Defence policies, where EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert Poettering, French Minister of Defence Herve Morin, and the Chairman of EU's Defence Committee, MEP Karl von Vogaw, spoke before meeting with Sarkozy, Wednesday afternoon.

    - "We need specifically European systems, including, f.ex. Satellite networks, etc", stressed the experienced Chairman Karl von Vogaw, speaking after the meeting with President Sarkozy to European Journalists from EuroNews, EuroPolitique and EuroFora.
    - And there where "European forces are already gathered, (f.ex. in Cyprus, Balkans, Lebanon, etc), if new operations started, I'd prefer to see them under European command in Future", he added, in reply to questions on how to overcome problems raised by a 3rd Countries as Turkey.

    Vogaw presented earlier, at EPP's plenary, a comprehensive Report on EU's Security and Defence policy, with a strong High-Tech component (including Satellites, UAV, protected Telecoms, Strategic Air and Sea Transports, Space assets, etc), sharp references to Political will and Historic necessities, while also stressing that EU must overcome the divide between Civilian and Military research and activities, making "a close cooperation between Civilian and Military means" a "specific" mark of Europe.
