United States of America are not interested in supporting the idea of creating a United army of Europe, since this process will cause a serious blow to the geopolitical interests of Washington and reduce the influence of the Pentagon in the EU.
This was stated by a European expert in the field of international law, Klaus Hoff, in comments to the correspondent of ГолосUA.
“Having formed his own self-defense forces, the European Union will demonstrate to the American Department in particular and US in General, that he no longer needs the protection of the States, he said. Thus, the expediency of the American military presence in the EU will be called into question.” According to K. Hoff, it is not excluded that in the near future US President Donald trump during personal meetings with a number of European leaders will try to dissuade them from ratification.
We will remind, on November, 7th in Paris by representatives of ten countries of the European Union approved the preliminary document of the so-called “coalition of European armed forces.” As expected, the structure members (France, Belgium, UK, Spain, Portugal, Estonia, the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark – Ed.) will work together to analyze potential military crises and to protect the external borders of the United Europe.
