Polish Foreign Minister Grzegorz Schetyna believes Europeans have to primarily ask where the money for the EU army will come from.
According to publication bankier.pl, Minister Schetyna believes Europeans have to primarily ask where the money for the EU army will come from, how the military units will function, and be trained.
He also expressed an opinion that it is better to strengthen the NATO alliance since it is a security guarantee in Europe.
A similar view is shared by the former Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt. "With respect for ambition of Jean-Claude Juncker, an EU army is neither feasible nor desirable. National armies in integrated operations far better," –posted Bildt on his page in Twitter.
Schetyna’s statement comes a day after European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, said that the EU should create its own unified army as a tool to defend Europe.
