The German Ministry of Foreign Affairs supported the proposal of Jean-Claude Juncker, European Commission President, to abolish the principle of unanimity in the European Union's foreign policy vote.

Deutsche Welle reports.

"The principle of unanimity makes it easy to achieve its goals for those who want to outsiders split into the EU," said German Minister for European Affairs of the German Foreign Ministry, Michael Roth.

This decision was also supported by the expert on foreign policy issues of the CDU / CSU Conservative Faction in the Bundestag, Jürgen Hardt.

"The ability to make decisions by the majority would be an expedient addition to the arsenal of European foreign policy, it would increase the ability of the European Union to act," he said.

European Commissioner for Neighborhood Policy and Negotiation of Extension Johannes Khan said that in the future, not all decisions on joining the European Union of new countries would be taken on the basis of the principle of unanimity.

Recall that at the Munich Conference on Security in February, Juncker called for the abolition of the principle of unanimity in the adoption of foreign policy decisions. According to him, this principle impedes the ability of the European Union to participate in solving important problems of international politics.
