Vice-President of the European Commission: “The European project can fail”

“We have fallen into the trap of identity politics. If the driving force of the European construction is national, cultural or ethnic identity, then it will not survive. For the first time in 30 years, I really believe that the European project can fail. I am not just being pessimistic, but the European Union is not eternal. We have to fight to live together,” Frans Timmermans, First Vice President of the European Commission said in an interview to Ouest France. Full English version of the interview on Euractiv.
