France Denies Telegraph Story That it Could Give up UN Seat

Recommended Posts

L.A.T.1961

France are huge supporters of the EU :yes: but they will not give Brussels their seat on the United Nations Security Council.

 

 "The French presidency slapped down a report in the Daily Telegraph that the country’s seat on the United Nations Security Council could be put “at the disposal of the European Union” if its governments back Emmanuel Macron’s plans for an EU army. 

No, France hasn’t proposed to let go of its seat on the Security Council, the Elysee said in a Tweet.

“It belongs to France and will stay that way.”

Not as they need to give it up officially as France could decide to take an EU vote on any matter raised at the UN and then go with the consensus.

But still its interesting to see how important France thinks the EU is compared to their own prestige. ;)
