EU going to create its own army
President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker declared that the EU had to create its own army, which instead of NATO would provide the security of Europe.
Juncker said: «Talking about security we need a different way of organizing a European defense … We need it now. The idea that the Americans will eternally see to ... European security is not true. Independent of the outcome of the US election, the Americans will not see to Europe’s security forever. We have to do it ourselves. And this is why we need a new approach to the European community of defense, including a European army».
However, the Europeans stopped to trust NATO for a long ago. Taking into consideration the fact that the US was using the alliance for some political purposes. Nevertheless, NATO has faced with serious problems, especially, in the strategically important region of the Mediterranean Sea.
