France and Germany for a new European Treaty (Sarkozy)

France and Germany argue for a new Treaty for the European Union, said Nicolas Sarkozy Thursday night in Toulon.

A one week of the next EU summit in Brussels, the French president suggested that the most important decisions are taken to a “qualified majority”, whereas now it is necessary to achieve unanimity of the member countries of the EU to make a decision.

“Europe needs more (…) political accountability,” said the president. That’s why Paris and Berlin feel a need to develop a “new” European Treaty, he said.

Proposals in this regard will be made public after a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, to be held December 5 in Paris.
