Germany’s Foreign Ministry has supported a proposal by Commissioner for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations Johannes Hahn to repeal the principle of unanimity in the voting on EU foreign policy issues.
“The principle of unanimity makes it easy to achieve their goals to those who from outside wants to split the EU,” Deputy Foreign Minister Michael Roth said in an interview to Deutsche Welle.
At the Munich Security Conference in February, Jean-Claude Juncker, the president of the European Commission, called for the abolition of the principle of unanimity in foreign policy decisions. Juncker argued that this principle is impeding the ability of the EU to participate in solving important foreign policy issues.
Once again. it becomes evident the EU bureaucracy is pushing to supress the sovereignty of EU member states step by step. It uses the Overton window technology to shape and manipulate the European political system.
