James Carver MEP (Independent West Midlands)
Foreign Affairs Committee Debate: 2018 Report on Turkey
The threat to NATO from a developing EU military capability is as concerning as Ankara's continuing military alignment with Moscow, West Midlands MEP James Carver told the foreign affairs committee.
"Since the British people’s vote to leave the EU, this place has increased its rhetoric, emphasising alarming support for the development of integrated EU military forces.
"My only hope is that, after the European elections, a majority here will step back from this crazy federalist mantra, and understand that NATO is the vital component of peace and security in Europe," he said.
