In Europe believed that in addition to statements of concern need to show the desire to act.
At the Munich conference on security issues, the head of EU diplomacy Josep Borrell called on Europe to review its position on addressing conflict situations in the world.
The head of EU diplomacy confident that the European Union must learn to speak the language of force.
“Europe must learn to speak the language of force. Many people think that this is a military power, Yes, but not only. Europe needs to develop the appetite for power, the desire to act and not just say every day that “we are concerned”, “we are very concerned”, “we are extremely concerned”. We need to be able to act,” said the diplomat.
According to Borrell, the next meeting of foreign Ministers of 27 countries – EU members, which will be held February 17, will be an indicator whether the EU can take decisions, in addition to sound alarmed.
There will be discussed issues about the state of Affairs in Syria, the situation in Libya and the middle East.
In addition, Borrell believes that Brussels should abandon the principle of unanimity in decision-making.
“We need to gradually take steps in the direction of the abandonment of the unanimity principle. For example, if 25 countries speak “for” [a decision on some issue], they should be able to make a decision. Otherwise there will be paralysis,” said he.
