PARIS (Sputnik) - French lawmaker and head of National Rally (RN) party Marine Le Pen stressed in her interview with Sputnik that the army was an element of the sovereignty of a national state, not of an international association.
"I am fundamentally against a European army. I believe that the army is an element of the nation's sovereignty. There is no such a thing as European sovereignty. Europe is not a nation, not people. And I want it to be more of a platform for European cooperation, a European alliance. A pan-European army should not appear in any case," Le Pen said.
