Trump’s comments about “not sending troops to defend Europe” provoke Czech lawmaker’s proposal to create an EU army

Former President of the United StatestrumpA recent president ‘encouraged’ Russia to attacknatoThe news that the United States will not defend European members has caused a stir in the European political arena.European UnionTop diplomat Borrell criticized it as a “stupid idea”, while Peksa, a member of the European Parliament’s Pirate Party, proposed that the EU create its own army.

Donald Trump, who is preparing to run for president again, has repeatedly expressed his dissatisfaction with European countries’ inadequate defense investment and long-term dependence on US military security, including from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Threat of withdrawal is also included. On the 10th, he also made shocking remarks, saying that if Russia attacks its European allies, he will “encourage” it and will not send troops to defend Europe.

These comments come amid current news that the US Congress is hesitant about new military aid to Ukraine, the European Union (EU) is still unable to expand domestic arms production, and several European and US generals have warned Europe against Warned to prepare for possible Russian attack. Against this background, it arouses particularly European sensibilities.

EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell told the media today before attending an informal meeting of EU foreign ministers that NATO cannot become a military alliance that operates “à la carte” in a restaurant. “Orders food.

He said that NATO cannot work based on the mood of the US President. NATO either does not exist or cannot exist. He also said that he did not plan to take time to comment on “any stupid idea” that came up during the US presidential campaign.

EU Internal Market Executive Commissioner Thierry Breton, who is responsible for strengthening the production capacity of the EU arms industry, said in an interview with French television station LCI that Trump’s words “we have heard this before. ..There is nothing new under the sun.”

Breton said that Europe’s security cannot be determined by “throwing a coin” in the US presidential election every four years. EU leaders understand that Europe needs to increase military spending and increase production capacity.

As US President Joe Biden’s amnesia has become a topic of conversation, Brattain suggested Trump may have memory problems as he was describing an incident that happened to a European man at a NATO meeting. The head of state responded, but Breton said that Trump actually said this to Ursula von der Leyen, the female president of the European Commission.

Perhaps the most qualified person to speak out in this war of words is Poland. Its defense budget exceeds NATO’s requirement of 2% of gross domestic product (GDP), reaching 3.9%, the highest among NATO’s European members. Polish Defense Minister Władysław Kosiniak-Kamyz took to social media.

Mikuláš Peksá, a Czech member of the European Parliament’s Pirate Party, took the opportunity to call on the EU to create its own army. He told EurActiv that the European Joint Force could be funded by the EU budget and supervised by the European Parliament. This way, it would not be blocked by the respective parliaments of NATO allies and would not meet NATO’s 2% defense budget requirement.

A recent report by the European Union Institute for Security Studies (EUISS) notes that since Russia launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Europe has launched the largest rearmament campaign since World War II, Which also includes 8 billion euros allocated for the EU budget. (about US$8.6 billion) has been invested in military research and development, 300 million euros in joint arms procurement, 500 million euros in accelerated ammunition production, etc., and a total of 12 EU member states have participated in the EU Billion Euros have been invested. Joint arms purchases.

Former US representative to NATO Ivo Dalder wrote bluntly in a letter to the European political news website Politico today. Over the past few decades, the United States has frequently sent its personnel to Europe, trying hard to persuade and even scold European allies. Spend more money on defense, but feng shui has changed, and now European leaders are frequently visiting Washington to strengthen US security support for Europe.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz will visit the United States on the 9th and urge the US Congress to “quickly” pass the delayed military aid package for Ukraine.
