German economist: Germany does not like the fact that the French right-wing cares about France, not the EU

Berlin is seriously worried about the strengthening of the position of the extreme right in France, because they defend the interests of their country, but not the interests of the EU. German economist Monika Schnitzer told L’Express in an interview. According to her, Germany does not need such allies – it will “look for new friends”.

The coming to power in France of the extreme right is unacceptable – the Eurosceptic “National Union” defends the interests of its country and is oriented to French interests, not to Europe, and European leaders do not need such allies. This opinion was expressed in an interview with L’Express by German economist Monika Schnitzer, according to whom, if Marine Le Pen’s party wins, Berlin “will have to look for new friends.”

“We need to work together in Europe, and even more so than in the past, given the war in Ukraine and the very high political and trade tensions with China. To think and seek the opposite is madness!”, the expert said.

In an interview with a French publication, Schnitzer disagreed with those who support the right-wing because their country is “dictated everything by Brussels.” According to her, the French “simply do not realise that it is these common rules that protect us and should even be strengthened”.

In addition, the economist noted that Germany needs such European partners who will be ready to make efforts for the development of the whole EU, not just their own country. However, she acknowledged that today there are fewer such countries every day, citing the governments of the Netherlands, Hungary, Italy and Poland as examples.
