EU: ‘None of Our Member-States Is Big Enough to Pursue Their Own National Interests’

The European Union’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Federica Mogherini, has declared that no EU member-state is big enough to “pursue their own national interests” — a pointed warning the United Kingdom and any country thinking of following them out of the bloc.
“I think we all agree that no single European country can respond effectively to any of the challenges of our times, and I think we agree that we, the European Union, have a responsibility to embrace our role as a global power,” the Italy-born technocrat declared in a speech to the European Parliament in Strasbourg.

“The European Union is the most powerful instrument we have as Europeans to serve our national interests on the global scene,” she continued, claiming that “None of our Member-States is big enough in the world of today to pursue their own national interests all alone” — a statement many have interpreted as a pointed jab at the British people, who voted to Leave the European Union in a national referendum in June 2016, although the country’s political class have yet to implement the result.
