Poland, France, Germany Meet To Make the EU a Military Power

The governments of Poland, France, and Germany vowed Feb. 13 to make Europe a security and defense power with a greater ability to back Ukraine, as fears grow that Donald Trump might return to the White House and (allegedly) allow Russia to expand its aggression on the continent, reported The Associated Press.

The foreign ministers of the three countries met in the Paris suburb of La Celle-Saint-Cloud to have talks about Ukraine, amid other issues. They discussed reviving the so-called Weimar Triangle, a long-dormant regional grouping that was designed to promote cooperation between the three. “Extraordinary times require extraordinary measures,” they said in a joint statement. “Against this background, it is our goal to make the European Union more united, stronger and able to respond to today’s security challenges, on a path towards a security and defence union, living up to our citizens’ expectations.”
