DENMARK - Kramp-Karrenbauer: COVID-19 an opportunity for more EU cooperation


The new coronavirus pandemic presents an opportunity for European countries to work more closely and be more cooperative with each other, German Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer said today.

"We saw that this pandemic took us to the limits of our national ability to act," Kramp-Karrenbauer said at a virtual seminar hosted by the Danish Institute for International Studies (DIIS).

"From my point of view, this is a crossroads. "COVID-19 gives us an opportunity to get closer to each other again," she added.

Kramp-Karrenbauer was invited by the Copenhagen-based institute two days after Germany took over the rotating presidency of the European Union.
