"The European Union needs a military headquarters to work towards a common military force, the Commission president has told MEPs in Strasbourg. Jean-Claude Juncker said the lack of a 'permanent structure' resulted in money being wasted on missions. ... Mr Juncker said a common military force 'should be in complement to Nato.' 'More defence in Europe doesn't mean less transatlantic solidarity.' A European Defence Fund would stimulate military research and development, he said." (09/14/16)
