FIDESZ MEP: TIME FOR EU TO END 'COLD WAR' AGAINST MEMBER STATES

 

In order to heal the debilitating divisions characterising the European Union, the bloc must end its “political and ideological cold war” against member states, Fidesz MEP Tamás Deutsch said in a plenary session of the European Parliament in Brussels. Speaking after an address by European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, Deutsch said the EU had lost its leading role in the world and called for an end to the use of double standards against member states. To heal what he called “institutional divisions” within the bloc, Deutsch said the EC should ensure that all EU citizens are able to exercise their right to take up work in other member states. The commission must also draft proposals aimed at eliminating laws that discriminate against central and eastern European businesses, Deutsch said, citing measures affecting the road haulage sector.
