EU’s udenrigschef Josep Borrell har for nylig i et interview med Der Spiegel sagt:
“Wherever there are problems, be it with China, Turkey or Israel, the EU countries often have different views. We then look for the lowest common denominator, and unfortunately this is often quite small. In the Foreign Affairs Council, we tinker with the grammar of our statements until everyone finds themselves in them at the end. I therefore think it would be better to adopt a strong and substantial position by a majority rather than unanimously adopting a weak position with little substance”.
