You are EUROPEAN! Macron blasted by EU chief for putting France’s interests ahead of bloc
FRACTURED relations between European nations have begun widening this week as a row between Italy and France ruptures the “united front”.

Emmanuel Macron’s recent actions have upset the EUGETTY
Antonio Tajani has blasted nations in the EU for putting their interests first

Italy was left reeling when they were undermined by EU golden boy and new French president Emmanuel Macron.

Mr Macron was expected to get onboard with all things Brussels – but has begun carving his own path around the bloc – to the fury of other nations.

This month he held talks in Paris over Libya, promising to bolster camps for migrants in the north African nation and end deaths at sea.

But his actions were behind the backs of the Italians who have taken in more than 100,000 desperate migrants this year alone.

The Macron Government also nationalised the STX France shipyard to bloc an Italian takeover.

It is Europe that must protect its interests. National interest not included in the European context makes us marginal and this applies to France, Germany and Italy

Antonio Tajani

President of the European Parliament Antonio Tajani claimed in a strongly worded outburst there is no room for EU nations to look after their own interests.

He said: “The nationalisation of STX? This is not the way to give Europe industrial policy and industrial defence policy.

“The French government’s nationalisation of Saint-Nazaire certainly poses a general political problem: this is not the way to give Europe an industrial policy and an industrial defence policy.

“We need European champions and not national champions.”

Mr Tajani was insistent on the need to protect strategic interests, especially since the EU is competing in against the likes of the US and China.

He said: ”It is Europe that must protect its interests.

“National interest not included in the European context makes us marginal and this applies to France, Germany and Italy.

“No European country can stand up with the big protagonists of the global scene.

“This does not mean that the Made in Italy or the Made in France should not be valued, but we must unite our forces, not let our weaknesses be divided by individual initiatives. ”

The European Parliament president used the Trump administration in the US to justify a tightening of EU nations which Germany and Italy are onboard with – yet Macron appears to be missing.

He told Italian Corriere della Sera: “We face a tough competition with the United States, also as a result of the election of Donald Trump, China, India and other giants.

“We can only think about European dimensions, otherwise we will be marginal. And this is true of anti-dumping and trade policies: either we speak in a single voice, or individual states are destined for irrelevance.

“I then believe that the internal market, a great achievement that has created millions of jobs and made our economies grow, should move us towards greater openness within.

“No one has rightly reacted to the many French companies that have invested in Italy.”

Mr Macron’s actions over STX have clearly ruffled feathers throughout the bloc – but politicians are treading carefully – trying to appear untied.

Mr Tajani told the same Italian publication he wants Macron to stay onside – in an interview which he made time for while he was on holiday.

He said: “On March 25, in Rome, all 27 countries, including France, we signed a document discussing the revival of European defence and strong action in its support.

“At the press conference I said that the European Parliament will look to ensure that these commitments are honoured. It seems to me that the French decision on STX does not go in this direction, but in the opposite. However, one government can not be judged by a single initiative.

“I hope Macron, who inaugurated his presidency at the tone of the Hymn to Joy, keeps his promises, pledging to strengthen the EU with a French contribution. Protecting the interests of France does not necessarily mean going against Europe.

“Italy, but also Spain, have a great role to play.For example, Italian and German Confindustria are good at meeting in Bolzano in the autumn. ”

Mr Tajani said EU interests “must be protected” and insisted “nationalisation is a problem”. .

Mr Macron’s meeting with a Libyan warlord and the president of the “unity” Government Fayez Seraj was almost mocked by the Italian who implied it was naive.

In Libya there are a number of militias controlling large swathes of the country – not just a simple conflict.

Mr Tajani said: “Any initiative in Libya, either French or Italian, must be made with a link and European support. Otherwise, we will never stabilise the situation.

“There are not only two leaders in Libya. Gaddafi was an interlocutor because he had somehow found a square among all the tribes.

“If we do not realise this, we will not have any political solutions. But the crucial point for Europeans is to act together, not to try to get first. Otherwise, we would commit the same mistake as in 2011.”
