German Views

What do the two most important German Politicians think about EU integration?
"European monetary union has to be complemented by a political union - that was always the presumption of Europeans including those who made active politics before us. . . What we need to Europeanise is everything to do with economic and financial policy. In this area we need much more, let's call it co-ordination and co-operation to suit British feelings, than we had before. That hangs together with the success of the euro."
German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder, The Times, London, 22 February 2002
"Transforming the European Union into a single State with one army, one constitution and one foreign policy is the critical challenge of the age"
German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer, The Guardian, London, 26 November, 1998 Team Europe has a large number of other quotes from a diverse array of Germans. If you want to understand their viewpoint, check them out.
