The Minister of defense of Italy Robert Pinotti called for the creation of a “defence of Schengen”. About it reports the edition Ilmessaggero.
“European defense must be submitted as a single unit, both inside and outside NATO. Europe of “two speeds” should be not only in the economy. The necessary “defense of the Schengen area” by strengthening the cooperation between Italy, France, Germany and Spain,” said Roberta Pinotti.
According to the head of the defense Ministry of Italy, the European defence should be strengthened regardless of NATO and the role of the United States in the Alliance.
“European defence should be strengthened not only in order to increase the defensive capabilities of the EU, but because if inside NATO European States will act separately, it will be an element of weakness. For NATO, it is also important that Europe was United in a defensive strategy,” believes the Minister.
She also noted that it was important that countries that promotes the idea of strengthening the common defense, further cooperated to expedite implementation of the decisions taken.
