EU countries want joint European army

EU countries want joint European armyEuropean Union should be keen on creating a joint European army, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Friday.

As the meeting between Central European member states and German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Warsaw comes to an end, Hungarian official told about the new force on a news conference.

"We should list the issue of security as a priority, and we should start setting up a common European army," Orban said.

Orban, one of the critics of the EU's migration policies, said security should be a priority for Europe.

Earlier on Thursday Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka after meeting with Merkel told about deeper European defence cooperation that could eventually lead to the creation of a European army.

"Certainly the Czech Republic can imagine stronger cooperation in the military area, integration of units, common exercises, and above all securing the capacity to organise operations to support common European foreign policy," he said.
