Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel has emphasized the necessity of creating a “real, true” European army following the steps of the French leader Emmanuel Macron.
the call came shortly after president trump publicly criticized Emmanuel Macron via tweeter when the latter suggested creating an army which would ensure the safety of Europ's security from the shadows of strong entities.
the chancellor said that everyone" should have the vision of creating a real, true European army one day.”
a similar call was shouted from The French president Macron during a radio interview last week where he admitted that europian countries are overshadowed by stronger entities such as China, Russia, and, the united states and that a Europeans would not be safe unless a true strong army would be created.
Macron added that Europ's weak security system caused a lot of misunderstandings especially after president trump decided to quit a major disarmament treaty which was formed after the 1980s Euro-missile crisis that hit Europe.
trump then backfired at the idea via a series of tweets saying that what the French leader meant was building an army against the U.S., China, and Russia.
the election of trump has awakened europian leaders on the emergency of recreating and strengthen europian security system.
the Eurosceptic group in the parliament was angered by the speech and accused the counselor of taking side with the superstate instead of being voicing the needs of the whole europian community.
back to 2016 UK used its veto in order to stop the creation of the europian army but the decision would not be valid anymore when the UK leave the EU.
The European Commission is still inspecting several proposals concerning defense issue while voicing that creating an army would not be necessary.
apart from suggesting the creation of an EU army Angela Merkel marked that the potential departure of the United Kingdom from the European Union would leave a “deep wound” to the continent.
