Merkel calls for a 'real, true' European army

After Trump unloads on Macron, Merkel joins calls for a European Union military

"By saying 'our interests first; who cares about the others?' we erase what a nation holds dearest, what gives it life, what makes it great, and what makes it essential - its moral values".

At a commemorative event for World War I this weekend, a French woman was very excited to be meeting her country's president.

"Europe must take our fate into our own hands if we want to protect our community", she added.

In a speech to the European Parliament on Tuesday, Merkel said that countries combining their forces would be the best way to secure peace on the continent.

We have to have a Europe that can defend itself alone - and without only relying on the United States in a more sovereign manner.

"We will not protect the Europeans unless we decide to have a true European army", Macron said, according to The Wall Street Journal.

I believe in the project of a sovereign Europe. In the European Union parliament on Tuesday, she went a step further, telling deputies they need to adapt to a world in which Europe's traditional allies may no longer guarantee the continent's security.

Monkey kills 12-day-old baby
Local residents reported the same monkey had tried to attack a 14-year-old girl around 15 minutes before snatching Arush. According to the Delhi government, 268 cases of monkey bites were registered in the city in 2016.

The suggestion angered Mr Trump, who sent a series of hostile tweets about the comments.

As reported, the initiative of creating the so-called European army is also promoting the President of France Emmanuel macron.

On Tuesday Trump took aim at Macron again, blasting France over its near-defeat to Germany in two world wars, its wine industry and Macron's approval ratings. They were starting to learn German in Paris before the U.S. came along. "Perhaps Europe should first pay its fair share of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, which the USA subsidizes greatly!" the president added.

Inadequate investment, a skills deficit and lack of digital innovation are problems in Germany, people in the sector say. The lady seemed to have Merkel's statement is not understood, so, Merkel said, in the presence of an interpreter, in broken French: "Je suis chancelière Allemagne", what means something like: "I'm Chancellor of Germany".

At the time, the United Kingdom government said it would veto the policy but Brexit means the bloc can push ahead with the policy from next year.

There has always been a desire among ardent Europhiles for a more federalised EU. He also hit out at the Chancellor for failing to use her powerful status in Brussels and influencing European Union chief negotiator Michel Barnier to protect German industry. Denmark, Malta and the United Kingdom have chose to opt out of the voluntary system.
