We cannot simply allow the European Parliament and the Commission to continue to grow and grow and become increasingly weak, she declared at a meeting with colleagues from other European countries in Berlin. We have to take it from him, damn it. A country like Germany, for example, we are prepared to be without our own commission for a limited time, said the German diplomat.
In recent months, the voices of government politicians calling for reforms in the decision-making process of the Union can be heard from Berlin, but also from Paa. The two largest EU countries want the bloc of 27 countries to limit the requirements of unanimous decision-making in some issues. This currently concerns foreign and security policy as well as tax issues. Proponents of the change argue, for example, the approach of Hungary, whose government blocked the implementation of some joint decisions from anti-Russian sanctions to global corporate tax.
However, the head of government of a number of veto countries expressed skepticism about important changes, such as the one limited by the European Commission, saying that he is worried about the influence of all countries on the functioning of the Union.
Baerbock noted that in order for the EU to function effectively after the planned birth, some of its principles must be adjusted.
The European Union must break up. This is the geopolitical consequence of Russia’s tone of wolf against Ukraine, said the German green politician. According to them, the people of the EU states could have a clear word at the December summit. There, they should debate the official start of the accession talks with Ukraine, which the country from the EU’s eastern border is pushing for.
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba pointed out that the reform of the EU and its division should not be connected. EU reform should not be held hostage, we must find the right balance, said Kuleba in Berlin.
In addition to Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia and the rest of the Balkan countries are seeking to join the EU. The union official estimates that it will not be born until the end of this decade, even given the complexity of the hiring process and the need for unanimity among the people.
