Bio-Ethics : CoE + EU to examine "Surrogate Mothers" controversy ?

Written by ACM
Wednesday, 05 October 2016
eup_bioethics_chairman_mikolacek__agg__eurofora_400


*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- The experienced President of EU Parliament's EPP Working Group on BioEthics, Miroslav Mikolasik, a mainstream MEP from Slovakia (current EU Chair for 7-12/2016), speaking to "Eurofora",  anounced that a Special Conference, with a Hearing of Experts, on the Controversial and Unpopular Issue of "Surrogate Mothers" is currently prepared for the Forthcoming Plenary Session in Strasbourg, at the End of this Month, (24-27 October 2016).


Significantly, the move comes just after, in parallel, the PanEuropean CoE's Organisation for Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law, has had its Parliamentary Assembly's Social and Family Affairs Committee, chaired by mainstream Cyprus' MEP Stella Kyriakides, (from the Governing ChistianDemocrat/EPP Party DHSY), adopt in Paris a controversial Report on Surrogacy, drafted by Socialist MEP from Belgium, Petra de Sutter, which passed (as modified by Amendments) with only 1 Vote difference !


Experienced mainstream CoE Assembly's MEP, Valeriu Ghiletchi, a ChristianDemocrat/EPP from the Governing Party in Moldova, former Long-Time President of PACE's Social+Family affairs Committee, had already Warned "Eurofora", as Early as, since the Latest, June 2016, CoE's PanEuropean Parliamentary Assembly's plenary Session in Strasbourg, (Comp. "Eurofora"s various NewsReports from that PACE June Session, f.ex. at : ... + ... +..., etc), that such a Draft Report, was, in fact, Attempting to Open Breaches towards a Dangerous Spread, in real practice, of that Controversial and UnPopular, blatant Violation of Both Womens' and Childrens' Human Rights, which provoked also obvious Risks against Humankind, (mainly by facilitating Massive Genetic Manipulations of Human Embryos, Contrary to Natural Births), under the Disguise of some so-called "Childrens' Rights", which, in fact, were Exploited there as a Pretext.


CoE's Assembly has already Refused to Debate that Cotroversial Report, sending it Back to Committee last June 2016, and, in Theory, it could also do the Same this Time too,on its October 2016 Next Plenary Session, unless it managed to Heavily Amend it in an adequate way.


Doubts about Surrogate Mothers' Controversy reach even Socialist Politicians, as, f.ex., French President Hollande, who has, in principle, excluded that, at least until now, but also Prime Minister Vals, who has reportedly Changed Views on that "Hot" Matter, passing from an initialy "Laissez Faire" stance, towards a more or less Strong Opposition later-on.


For another, more Recent Question raised by "Eurofora" on a particular case about Surrogacy, judged this Summer by the French Supreme Admiistrative Court, and the reaction of International Institute for Human Rights "René Cassin"'s Head, and former ECHR President, Professor Costa, (who had just Highlighted relevant Challenges and Dangers raised by Bio-Technologies in such areas, See, f.ex. : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/humanrightstopofficialonposthumnismandsurrogacy.html .

The forthcoming CoE Assembly's Plenary Session comes First, Next Week in Strasbourg, 2 Weeks Before the Next EU Parliament's Plenary here, scheduled for the Last Week of this Month (the BioEthics Meeting being, probably, scheduled for Wednesday, 26/10/2016), which holds, Exceptionaly, 2 Plenaries in 30 Days in Strasbourg, as Chairman Mikolasik reminded to "Eurofora".

CoE Local/Regional Democracy Watchdog's Chief Frecon to Eurofora on Ukraine Summit: Boost Dialogue !

Written by ACM
Wednesday, 30 September 2015
clrae_president_jeanclaude_frecon_to_eurofora_400

*Strasbourg/CoE/Angelo Marcopolo/- PanEuropean CoE's Watchdog on Local/Regional Democracy's President, experienced Senator Jean-Claude Frecon, from the Governing Socialist Party in France, speaking to "EuroFora" on the forthcoming Local/Regional Elections in Ukraine on October 2015, which are expected to be Crucial for the Peace process according to the Minsk Agreements, that a Quadrilateral Summit between the Leaders of France, Germany, Russia and Ukraine are due to thoroughly Examine in a Summit in Paris on Friday, endorsed the view that, if a Postponement of those Elections in the Autonomist Regions of Donetsk/Luhansk might Help to Start and Develop a real Dialogue between all sides involoved, on the concrete details of the Future Political Solution to the Conflict, then, that Proposal of Compromise reportedly made Recently by Representatives of those areas, might, indeed, become Helpful.

 


    => In fact, what is Essential to try to obtain in the forthcoming Summit for Ukraine, is to Boost a Dialogue among all sides involved, according to the Minsk Agreements, on the main oustanding issues, particularly concerning the imminent Local/Regional Elections, the Status of the DeCentralisation in the Donetsk/Luhansk Regions held by Autonomists, etc, he stressed to Reply to an "Eurofora" Question in Conclusion, (See Infra).

      - "We (CLRAE) have already said that a kind of (Local/regional) Autonomy for those areas could be a Good Solution, in Ukraine as elsewhere, but, naturally, in the Framework of the Country's Territorial Integrity", President Frecon stressed from the Outset, as a matter of Principle.


    -"This was inscribed (recently) in the Ukranian Legislation, even if some sectors of the Extreme Right, don't like it at all". CLRAE's Head observed, concerning some Troubles reportedly provoked after the Vote of a relevant Draft Law by the Ukranian Parliament, at a 1st Lecture, that President Poroshenko has strongly Condemned.  


    - "But what do they want, in fact : Return Back to the War ?", Jean-Claude Frecon wondered, reminding the Tragic Deadly and Destructive Ukranian Conflict which has stroke since February 2014 that formerly Peaceful European Country, provoking, according to Figures published at the Beginning of September 2015 by UNO's High Commissioner on Human Rights, at nearby Geneva, More than 8.000 Dead, and 17.810 Wounded Victims, many among them being simple Civilian People.


    - "In order to Avoid War, trying to Help People Live Together, and start some Dialogue between them, Hoping that this Dialogue will be Conclusive" for the completion of a Political Solution, "it's simply Better to tell them (i.e. to the Donetsk/Luhansk Autonomists) that you Remain inside the Ukranian Country, but we  (Kiev's Central Government) give you some Autonomy", he resumed in substance.


    - At any case, "we, neither inside the CLRAE, nor in the Entire CoE, we are Not in favor of saying that, Today we have 47 Member Countries, but in the Future we might have, perhaps more than 50 or even 100 ! No, we (CoE) are Not at all for such a thing", he clearly underlined, adiopting a Critical stance vis a vis Various  recent Trends, mutatis-mutandis, also in some Other European Countries, such as, f.ex. in UK's Scotland, Spain's Catalognia, etc., where Popular Referendums for Independence, or not, have been notoriously asked and voted, (however without obtaining yet any Majority of Votes in Neither among them)..


    - Thus, "F.ex., among others, for Catalonia, it was said in substance that you are part of the Country (Spain), but you can Speak the Catalonian Language too". Also in Ukraine, "even if the Ukranian remains the Official Language of the Country, neverteless, in the Regions where the Large Majority of the Population are Russian-Speakers, they are told that they can Continue to use Both Languages, which, by the way, are Not so Differend between them....", he noted.


    >>> Questioned by "EuroFora" about a Recent Proposal of Compromise, reportedly made earlier this Month, by Representatives of the Donetsk/Luhansk Autonomists, to eventualy Postpone for later-on, (f.ex. for February 2016), the Local/Regional Elections due to be held in that area, as also throughout the rest of Ukraine on October 2015, but apparently strongly Contested by Kiev's Central Government, which claims that the Conditions required for such an Election would Not yet exist, or not entirely fulfilled in the pro-Autonomists' areas, CLRAE's Head appeared quite Positive, but under one Key Condition ;


    >>> - "If we can Hope that a certain Dialogue could be established, then, we have to Try that !", PanEuropean CoE's Watchdog for Local/Regional Democracy's experienced Head clearly advised, in reply to the above-mentioned "EuroFora"s Question.


      - "F.ex., if they tell us that we need some Weeks or Months more, in order to hold a Dialogue, then, I think, that Naturally, this should be accepted", he resumed.


     - "But we don't know yet" if it will work, or not. "So, what I'm advising, in substance, is, despite everything, to put, at least, a little of water in the wine", (typical French expression calling for Moderation),  "Even if we didn't obtain something very Big" (in the key promise for a process of DeCentralisation of Power, in exchange of some other concessions from the Autonomists), "at least, we obtained Some Concessions". And, in general, in this as also in Other cases, "you never know if, what Exists Today, might Not Remain for Ever", he Warned all involved.


    + Meanwhile, "the CLRAE, which will hold its Next Plenary Session" in Strasbourg "in 3 Weeks" Time,is due to "Send a Team of about 30 Observers" for the forthcoming Local/Regional Elections in Ukraine, "and there are 10 People more, comming from the (CoE's) Parliamentary Assembly, who Asked to come Together with us", anounced to "EuroFora" the President of the PanEuropean Congress of Local and Regional Authorities (CLRAE). "Because we have a crystal-clear legal Mandate for that", he concluded.


    => Finally, expressing the Wish of PanEuropean CoE's Competent body for Local/Regional DeCentralisation and Democracy, from the forthcoming Quadrilateral Summit on Ukraine, scheduled for Friday, President Frecon stressed that, - "What We (CLRAE) want, First of all, is that they all Sit around the Same Table" for Peace Talks, as he pointed out.


    - "So, at least the Russians and the current Ukranians Government should be there", together with France and Germany. And he acknowledged that, according to the Minsk Agreements, a "Dialogue" on  certain Crucial Key points, must include also Representatives of all sides, i.e. also or the Donetsk/Luhansk areas held by Autonomists, (Comp. Supra).

    -
    - "Naturally, Yes. But we know that this will be Difficult. That's why, even if we might not obtain, right from the Start, a Full Negotiation, but, at least, a kind of Partial Negotiation, then, it could be OK for us", i.e. for the PanEuropean Organisation of Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law, i.e. the CoE, President Jean-Claude Frecon concluded in fine, as thing stand Today.

EU Vote : Strasbourg's Daul wins 3 landslides, guiding EPP in larger than expected European victory

Written by ACM

 daul_epp__all_ep_400

Guiding the largest Group of MEPs to a bigger than expected pan-European victory over exhausted or fragmented competitors, overcoming even the results of a scheduled split, and winning brillant scores at his home town : Strasbourg, region : Alsace, and country : France, Joseph Daul, the President of the European People's Party EPP/ChristianDemocrats, succeeded also to be both present in Brussels and Strasbourg at the same time, thanks to a duplex connexion...

Daul's EPP list got some 28%, clearly distancing PS' 23% in Strasbourg, despite a recently elected Socialist Mayor. More than 29%, compared to PS' less than 17%, in his Constituency : East. Some 33%, (i.e. almost double than "Greens"' 17% who follow), in his Region, Alsace. And his National Party : UMP clearly won in France with 28%, the PS following with only 16%, (equal to "Greens")..

More important, Daul's EPP Group inside EU Parliament, with some 265 MEPs kept a solid 1st place, much Higher than all other Groups, and even augmented its lead over Socialists, who lose many MEPs, falling down to some 160 MEPs only. Thus, he managed to succesfully overcome a scheduled split by British Conservatives and a few others who were added to various Independents at his right : About 90 MEPS searching an attachment. Most of them have already said that they would often vote together, according to selective agreements with the EPP Group.

In fact, it's Daul Group's Solidity, added to EPP candidate MEPs' gains in several EU Countries, which makes of the EPP a kind of "Center of Gravity" in the new EU Parliament (2009-2014), around which, various, more or less close circles of much smaller Groups can float, according to punctual or structural deals.

Many variations become, thus, possible : After losing more than 100 MEPs EU-wide, Socialists, with only 160 MEPs, cannot rely on a tiny (+6) augmentation of the small "Green" group (with only some 51 MEPs), nor on the diminished, 30 MEPs EuroLeft group, to challenge EU Parliament's powers wihout the EPP. But Liberals, despite losing some -20 MEPs, could, theoretically, add their remaining 80 MEPs to EPP's 265 MEPs or so, to get an absolute Majority. Unless EPP's 265-MEPs strong Group succeeds to attract at least some 70 MEPs from Small Groups as UEN, Ind/Dem and various others or Independents, which total more than 145 MEPs in all, to form another Majority, at the center-right..

Wisely, Daul has resisted to Journalists' questions in Strasbourg on who will be the next EU Parliament's President, (while also avoiding questions on EU Commission before June 7), arguying that "we must first see what the final outcome of the (June 2009) Elections will be".

Speculations focused on a choice between an agreement with Socialist Group's leader, Martin Schultz of Germany for a rotating presidency, as previously, or with Liberal Group's leader, Graham Watson from the UK. But other last-minute possibilities cannot be excluded.

If Cameron, the British Conservative party's leader, hadn't been pushed by some to try to make a small split Group out of the EPP (as in a remote Past), then, his MEPs would be Members of a most influential Group in EU Parliament, close to an Absolute Majority (EPP having, in this case, some 360 MEPs out of a total of 736)..

Schultz's confirmation, earlier to "EuroFora", that the PS would like to keep a "technical agreement" of the past with the EPP, (on a rotating chairmanship), wasn't a surprise. EU sources indicated that for the first 2,5 years, among EPP candidates might be vice-presidents Mario Mauro (Italy) or Poland's Buzek, etc., followed by PS' turn.

Watson is focusing on Political aspects :  Contrary to usual talk, now, (particurly if Lisbon Treaty enters soon into force), "it's not so much who will be the President of EU Commission, (i.e. Baroso or someone else) which matters. Because EU needs Political leadership from EU Council (i.e. National Governments) and/or EU Parliament", he told "EuroFora".

EU Commissioners Kuneva, Reding + Orban to "EuroFora" : "Enormous Potential to boom on-line !"

Written by ACM
Thursday, 07 May 2009

 imag0711_400

EU has an "enormous Potential" for on-line Media, and EU intends to make it "boom" by "targetting the whole (European) on-line Market, and not just a segment", in order to "sell better for consumers and businesses" by facilitating EU Citizens' access through the promotion of their Rights,  Multi-linguism, etc. including by facing the challenge of Better Networks and Technologic Innovations, replied in substance EU Commissioners Meglena Kuneva, Viviane Reding and Leonard Orban, to "EuroFora"'s questions.

Observing that "some previous attempts to create On-line Media, even in Big EU Countries, did not work enough for the moment, at least not as in the USA" etc., "EuroFora" asked EU Commissioners about their views on the new perspectives opened now, thanks also to "EU efforts to help", "for the developpement of new On-line Media, on the entire EU-level".

-  "The EU On-line Market has an enormous potential, that we don't utilize enough", replied from the outset Reding

- "We (EU) want to bring this Market to a Boom", EU Commissioner on Information Society and Media stressed in her reply to "EuroFora"'s question on the development of new European On-line Media.

F.ex. about 50% of EU households already have a broadmand access, but less than ...7% of them use it to buy on the Internet, so that the current 106 Billion € on-line EU market income, even if huge, in fact doesn't represent but only a small fraction of what is possible in the EU, Reding observed.

"That's why we have to inform both businesses and users", she concluded in reply.

EU Commissioner for Consumers' protection, Meglena Kuneva, also replied positively to "EuroFora"'s question on the current prospects for the development of On-line Media ;

- "It fits", Because "we (EU) are targetting the whole single on-line market" throughout all Europe. "As you can see, this is in the framework of our efforts : " "Digital Agenda for the entire On-line Market", as it's quite right written on screen".

 - So, "this is, indeed, our purpose  : To sell better to the On-line Market, both for Consumers and for Businesses", EU Commisioner Kuneva concluded in her reply to "EuroFora"'s question.

Statistics reveal that, until now, the main obstacle was the lack of "Trust" by consumers to trans-border transactions on-line, mainly because they were afraid that the good they bought might not be as shown in the screen, or not delivered at all, as she said earlier. But, even if Kuneva added to "EuroFora" that "we are not targetting one or another segment of the on-line market,...so that she "wouldn't outline just one sector", in fact, this problem should normally not affect the on-line Media : Because there, the "delivery" is made not physically, at a later Date, but immediately on-line. (Fex. simply by opening access to part or all the content of "News", interactive exchanges, etc).

Reding and Kuneva had just presentented in a Press Conference at EU Parliament in Strasbourg the "EYouGuide", a Practical, easy to read and use, EU Guide to Citizens' Rights in order to "Trust" as tranOn-line consumers at the Internet, available both in Leaflets and at : ec.europa.eu/eyouguide

imag0717_400

EU Commissioner for MultiLingualism, Leonard Orban, obviously was also Key-person for another main original characteristic behind "EuroFora" project, and any on-line Media that would target the entire EU, including also interactive content for its Readers with "Forums", etc.: The inevitable use of many Languages at the same time in parallel :

Questioned later by "EuroFora" on that precise point, EU Commissioner Orban said that "the challenge is huge, because EU has 23 official Languages to manage", and already the need for qualified interpretators is felt, particularly in many specialized fields, for qualified persons able to master even a scientific or legal terminology. Paradoxically, there is a problem for English speaking interpretors, but also others, since we face also the Competition of a Global Market, including fex. Afrika, Asia, etc.

- But Orban revealed to "EuroFora" that, recently, he had "brought together Scientists, Researchers, the Industry, Businesses, Experts, Politicians, Administrations, NGOs, etc. in order to find out all together what are the needs and the possibilities for the developpement of efficient New Technologies able to do Automatic Translations", including on-line.

Accurately multiply each sentence's automatic translation in 23 languages, as EU has to do, is obviously an immense task.

-"But we hope to arrive to an acceptable average level, mainly through Innovative technologies and organisation, in the following 5 Years", EU Commissioner Orban concluded to "EuroFora".

"EuroFora"'s members, users and readers would certainly urge EU Commission to try to do even better, and mainly faster, (even if it starts, at the beginning, at least in the main 3 or 5 EU Languages, to be followed later on by all the others). Because the practical needs for an easy, simple and efficient, on-line automatic translation is obviously vital for the free and good communication between EU Citizens, as well as for the development of a common European consciousnes.

EU echoes Sarkozy proposal for a common Economic + Security area for Turkey (+Russia), no accession

sarko_looks_up_applauded_after_making_the_t_point

    EU Rapporteur on Enlargment Strategy, maistream German MEP Elmar Brok, speaking to "EuroFora", welcomed the proposal made earlier this week by French President Nicolas Sarkozy for the EU to"start Now Talks with Turkey to create a common Economic and Security area", instead of full Accession, at a period when Ankara looks more and more unfit and/or unwilling to respect EU conditions.

    - "For Europe to have strong Political will, it must stop dilutiing itself in an endless Enlargement. It must have borders...Diversities enrich, on the condition that they don't undermine European Cohesion, and don't weaken EU Unity", Sarkozy stressed.
    
    - "Countries like Turkey share a part of common destiny with Europe, with which they have a vocation to build a Privileged Relation, to be closely associated, but not to become Member of the EU"  : "Noone respects his friends by telling them lies. Noone respects his friends by making them promises that will be never kept", he added.

    That's why "we'd better start, from now, negotiating with Turkey to create a common Economic and Security area", Sarkozy proposed.

Significantly, the French President was repeatedly and largely applauded by EU citizens, 3 times, when he made the Turkey point, (strategically placed between Europe's "Political Will" and its cultural heritage, historically open to mutually enriching dialogue with all the World, but never diluted).

    - "We could propose such a great ambition also to Russia, which must not be percieved as an Adversary of Europe, but as a Partner. Thus, we'd create a wide area, of more than 800 Million inhabitants, sharing the same Security, the same Prosperity", he concluded.

brok__merkel_400

    Sarkozy's move was anounced at the eve of a Franco-German Top meeting with Chancellor Angie Merkel in Berlin on Sunday, to jointly launch the EU Elections campain, after an EU Summit at nearby Prague, to launch a new kind of relations, called "Eastern Partnership", with neighboring countries such as Urkaine, Belarus, Moldova, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaidjan, etc, (to which Russia, reportedly, is not - and does not want to be - included).

    As for Ukraine, which has already expressed her wish to join the EU in future, "Kiev will have a special place, and a very important role to play", replied earlier this week in Strasbourg, to an "EuroFora" question EU Chairman in office , Czech vice-Prime Minister Alexander Vodra.

    - "This direction is more Realistic for Turkey than Accession negotiations", reacted immediately EU Parliament's Rapporteur for Enlargment Strategy, mainstream German MEP Elmar Brok, commenting Sarkozy's idea for "EuroFora"

     Particularly "as far as it concerns the respect of EU Rules by both sides", he added, hinting at Turkey's now obvious inability and/or unwillingness to abide with EU Acquis, EU Commitments (fex. on Cyprus, etc), and European Democracy/Human Rights rules. (Comp. infra).

    Brok added that, in his view, a similar proposal might be made also to Ukraine and other neighbouring Countries, regardless if they have, or not, a "European vocation". This would not necessarily mean that there couldn't be any accession prospects at all." for all the countries that might be included in this area, according to Brok.  But it's preferable, particularly for Turkey, "because it's a more Realistic approach than full Membership".

    On this point, Sarkozy's proposal, (which he'll share with German Chancellor Merkel), seems more crystal-clear.

    - "Turkey does not fullfil EU Criteria, and will never fullfil EU Criteria" on Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law. "Some have been lying to Ankara, but we must tell the Truth, and have honest and close relations with her", said meanwhile to "EuroFora" on the same issue also the President of EU Parliament's largest Group of MEPs (ChristianDemocrats/EPP), Joseph Daul.

"Hot" Debate at EU Parliament reveals CHANGE of mood towards "Suspension" of EU - Tukey talks.
------------------------------
    Earlier this week, many MEPs, and even some of those who were previously in favor of Turkey's controversial EU bid, strongly criticized the persistance and even aggravation of serious Human Rights violations in the country, that ECHR continues to "unanimously" condemn ":

      - "After winning a big victory in the latest Local Elections, the pro-Kurdish party DTP almost doubled its Elected Mayors from 52 to 98", but afterwards "more than 400 politicians were thrown to Prison and prosecuted" by the Turkish Authorities, denounced on behalf of the ChristianDemocrat/EPP Group, Belgian MEP Frieda Brepoels.

     At the same time, "more than 1.500 Children are closed in Turkish Prisons", she added. "What will the EU Commission do" against these facts ?

- "Turkey appears to be at greater Distance away from Copenhagen Criteria after 4 Years of accession Negotiations, than when they started !", denounced on behalf of the Liberal Group, German MEP Alexander Lambsdorf.    

"On the central issue of Press Freedom, Critical Journalists face obstacles for their accreditation, others are prosecuted, condemned, fined and/or jailed, Media blocked or closed", he denounced.   

 - "EU Made 2 grave Mistakes with Turkey : To start accession negotiations, and to continue them", despite everything, criticized Dutch MEP Bastian Belder, on behalf of the Ind/Dem group.

Sarkozy and Merkel want deals with Obama on European Security at Strasbourg's NATO 2009 Summit

oscenato
------------------
In parallel but concording moves, EU Chair, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angie Merkel both invited this week US-President elect, Barack Obama, to discuss important deals breaking new ground on European Security during the NATO's 60 Years Anniversary Summit of Heads of State in Strasbourg, where Obama is expected to make his 1st visit to Europe as a President on April 2009.

Merkel focused mainly on smoother NATO - EU Defence and Security policy cooperation, while Sarkozy spoke about PanEuropean Security, associating both Russia and the USA, proposing to freeze missile and shields' deployement until an agreement is reached.

But both tackled some hard nuts to crack : Turkey's VETO against the participation of EU Member Cyprus to EU-NATO cooperation, and Russia's anouncement on deployment of missiles up to Kaliningrad, at EU's belly, in reply to USA's wish to set up missile shields in EU States such as Poland or Czech Republic, etc.


---------------------
- "Certainly...one of the points that we'll dicuss with the New US President", Barak OBAMA, "who will come f'or the 1st time in Europe as president, at the NATO Summit", co-hosted by France and Germany in Strasbourg, ""concerns, above all, the European Security and Defence Policy" (ESDP), and "the relations between NATO and its partners", with whom it should "work together", anounced earlier this week Merkel.

We must find "a reasonable and adequate concept to articulate NATO and European Security and Defense policy", because of a "series of practical issues, sometimes difficult to understand", but that "we must discuss".

nato__merkel

- "An example" of that is "the issue of Cyprus and Turkey", said Merkel, where Ankara raises problems "from Kosovo up to Afghanistan", as also CoE's chair, Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt recently observed in Strasbourg replying to EuroFora's questions.

- "We must do something to smoothen this problem for good, and not only on a case-by-case basis, laboriously negotiated each time". Here, we must find "a reasonable and adequate concept to articulate NATO and European Security and Defense policy", Merkel stressed.

- "With good will from all sides, it could and should be posible. Germany wants also to help on that". Otherwise, "the coming generations will not understand why it took Decades to do so". But, if we "don't even achieve that for Decades, this would be an Historic Failure !", the German Chancellor warned

- "I think that our American partners are increasingly realizing that", Merkel said, pleading for "a stronger European Security and Defence policy, with which, I believe, the Atlantic Security Partnership can also strengthen and solidify".

Meanwhile, USA is also due to take in 2009 a special status inside EU-led EUROCORPS, the European Army HeadQuarters, based in Strasbourg.

Merkel said that after meeting in Berlin with NATO's Secretary General, Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, earlier this week, precisely in order to "prepare NATO's Summit", scheduled for the beginning of April 2009 in Strasbourg.

Scheffe, knows well Strasbourg, since he chaired the CoE, as Holland's Foreign Minister, when he brokered a controversial deal precisely on Turkey and Cyprus about the implementation of ECHR judgements on Greek Cypriot displaced persons' houses and properties in 2003. He returned later at least once, for a WEO meeting at the CoE, where he precisely had highlighted such EU - NATO issues.

EU Commission's 2008 Report on Turkey has just observed that, on European Defense - Security policy, "Turkey continues to object to EU-NATO Cooperation which would involve all EU Member States". "This created Problems for EU-NATO co-operation in the context of Civilian ESDP missions, in particular in Kosovo and Afghanistan".

 French EU Chair, President Sarkozy and Merkel are visiting Washington on Friday and Saturday for a Global G-20 Summit with current US President George Bush, on the sidelines of which are expected preparatory contacts with US President-elect Obama's entourage, even if himself might stay in Chicago until he takes over on January 21.

Before going to Washington, Sarkozy concluded today an UE - Russia Summit with Dmitry Medvedev, where they "spoke in length on PanEuropean Security" :

- As EU President, I proposed that we meet on mid-2009 in a framework such as OSCE's in order to set the foundations of a Future Pan-European Security, which would associate Russia and USA, and that, meanwhile, nobody speaks about deploying missiles or shields, which complicate the situation".

- NATO's Summit in Strasbourg-Kehl, on April 2009 is a perfect occasion to discuss with our American friends and to prepare a possible OSCE Summit for these issues f.ex. for June or July", Sarkozy concluded.

- We must all abstain from Unilateral measures" dangerous for Europe's security. "Russia only reacted to decisions taken by some other countries. But if they are ready to cooperate, we are ready to discuss. EU could be an intermediary", added Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, before going himself too at the Washington G-20 Economic Summit.
