Politico: German-French disagreements hamper EU enlargement

Disagreements between Berlin and Paris on certain issues, including expansion and reform of the European Union, are preventing new countries from joining the union, Politico writes, citing sources.

A representative of the French government, who wished to remain anonymous, noted that France has some differences with Germany.

However, according to him, despite this, the opinions of both sides regarding EU enlargement coincide, but they cannot agree on the goals of the policy.

In addition, Berlin and Paris cannot agree on reforms in the field of agriculture and on the principle of decision-making within the association. As the publication emphasizes, all this is necessary for the entry of new members, including Ukraine.

Alberto Alemanno, a professor at the Ecole Supérieure de Commerce in Paris, expressed the opinion that French leader Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, in fact, do not want to expand the EU.

According to the European Commission, the Ukrainian conflict has led to the depletion of the European Union (EU) budget. Read more about this in material Public News Service.
