The importance of France can never be negated as the country has a rich history and is considered as one of the most developed regions of the world. France is also the part of European Union which further enhances its importance in the European Region. France has always been the part of news; however in recent years the country has been a dominant feature as far as news is concerned whether it is related to terrorist attacks or state policies related to “Burqa” (a cloth worn by Islamic women to cover their bodies).
EU Defense RE-Launched: Crux
The Crux of the whole news is that both Germany and France are involved in active preparation for a proposal seeking more effective policy related to the defense of the European region. The news was broken by the defense ministry of France. The main objective of the proposal is to make the European Union’s defense more effective without replacing the bodies of national defense as they are very critical for the defense of countries forming the European Union.
The document proposes efficient and effective defense through measures like the establishment of the defense headquarters (European), a satellite system of surveillance which is common and most importantly the sharing of both military and logistics resources related to medical. The document also proposes that the EuroCorps should also be utilized in a better and effective manner. Eurocorps is basically a military body which is intergovernmental. The center of Eurocorps is both Germany as well as France. Other important countries of Europe like Luxembourg, Belgium and Spain are also members of the EuroCorps; however their Eurocorps is based in Strasbourg.
The European Union has always been involved in the foreign armies training, however according to recent developments it is expected that it may go at the length of even financing the equipment for the foreign armies. Of course the main aim behind this policy is resolution of the conflict. Both France and Germany also plan to spend more on the research and development for the sole purpose of strengthening the defense industry of Europe.
The biggest setback for the European Region recently has been the dismemberment of England from the European Union. According to Mr.von der Leyen, it is due to England’s dismemberment that the European region has been unable to develop as well as implement the security policy which is integrated in nature.
Time will really tell how well this policy works out, however one thing is pretty clear that the republic of France is facing an extra ordinary situation at the moment and its top priority at the instant is to provide security to its citizens. It seems that all these efforts are being made as a result of the recent terrorist attacks that have struck the country. We cannot clearly state that what will be the result of these coordinated efforts;however on thing is for sure, France is pretty serious at the moment as far as its security issue is concerned.
