Премьеры Венгрии и Чехии призвали к созданию общей армии ЕС

The Prime Ministers of Hungary and the Czech Republic called for the establishment of a common European army in the consultations of the Prime Ministers of the Visegrad countries with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Warsaw. This was reported by “Polish Radio”.

Relevant statements were made by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka.

It is noted that Orban before the meeting, presented the Hungarian proposal of changes in the European Union. He said that should be maintained a strict fiscal policy, which is based on economic growth. He also expressed the view that cases involving security must be a priority.

“So let’s start the creation of a common European army,” urged the Hungarian Prime Minister.

The head of the Czech government also acknowledged that the joint army would be the right decision.

“The best protection of the Schengen border is not only more efficient cooperation in the fight against terrorism, but, in our opinion, we also need to start a discussion about the possibility of creating a common European army,” said Bohuslav Sobotka.

He agreed that it would be a difficult process, but noted that Europe needs better cooperation in the field of defence and security.

We will remind, the first Deputy Prime Minister of the Czech Republic Andrew Babish already advocated the creation of a single European army.
