Euractiv: Macron questioning NATO in Economist interview raises eyebrows about his methods12 November 2019 | 04:11 | FOCUS News Agency
In an interview with Le Monde on Friday (8 November), the designated EU High Representative/Vice-President for foreign policy Josep Borrell urged people to refer to the entire Economist interview with Macron, rather than to the shock formula referring to “NATO brain death”, which has been causing trouble across European capitals.
Borrell, who will take office on 1 December, nevertheless justified Macron’s statement, which in his opinion “also reflects the urgent need for Europe to move forward with determination in the development of its defence capabilities, to be able to deal with the conflicts that affect it most closely”. He defended the French president for having dared to address the ‘elephant in the room’, by taking shots at NATO and calling for “lucidity”.
