French PM: Europe could ‘fall apart within months’
(TRUNEWS) French prime minister Manuel Valls has warned that the EU could die quickly, and be dead within months.
Valls made these comments during a panel discussion with the German finance ministerWolfgang Schäuble at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
In a follow on interview with BBC, Valls reiterated his alert by saying the Schengen Area, the 26 European countries that have abolished passport requirements for mutual travel, may die due to the growing pressure from muslim migration.
Valls also expanded his warnings by saying it wasn’t just the Schengen area, but Europe as a whole that could die.
“If Europe is not capable of protecting its own borders, it’s the very idea of Europe that will be questioned,” Valls said to BBC.
When pushed further, Valls’ clarified his statement, saying “yes the European project [is at threat], not Europe as much. Not our values, but the concept of Europe that our founding fathers had, yes, it is in very grave danger.”
Valls ended by voicing his support for the creation of an EU border guard force, previously referenced by officials as an EU army.
“That’s why you need border guards and controls outside the European Union. Sometimes we had the feeling that borders did not exist. No, borders do exist so you have to protect them,” Valls said.
“Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment.”
– Romans 13:1-2
“They will say, ‘The fruit you longed for is gone from you. All your riches and splendor have vanished, never to be recovered.’ The merchants who sold these things and gained their wealth from her will stand far off, terrified at her torment”
Valls’ sentiments were shared by German Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière, who recently stated that their “temporary” border controls announced early January will be maintained indefinitely.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel, though duplicitous in her actions toward migration, has said that Europe is “vulnerable” and that the fate of the euro is “directly linked” to resolving the migration crisis.
With the European Union’s currency relying heavily on tariff free trade and unity of economic policy, disagreements on immigration and border closing within the Schengen area risk crashing the euro, well before the economic burden of providing exuberant welfare to migrants is felt.
