If Greece exits from the Eurozone, the situation in Europe will change radically, as before Europe used to overcome crises through negotiation and respect of the interests of the weaker countries, Soledad Gallego-Díaz noted.
“Europe has always considered the fact that Germany becomes the ‘guardian of our [European] essences’ as bad news. Even worse [news] if it is accompanied with France’s disappearance as a counterweight.”
No one asks France’s opinion, as well as that of Italy and the UK during the Eurogroup’s meetings, the newspaper said, adding that this means that the European balance of power has changed and currently Germany is the main decision maker.
Commenting on the situation in Greece, Soledad Gallego-Díaz asked whether the EU was able to agree with those who want to change its rules, especially when preserving them means that the existing dogmas only significantly increase inequality.
Soledad Gallego-Díaz believes that the failure of the European Union’s strategy in terms of compliance with its social and political commitment cannot but cause concern despite any outcome of the Greek referendum.
