Schulz: It would be an historical failure, if the EU is abolished

If the European Union is abolished, that would be “an historical failure”, the President of the European Parliament Martin Schutz said, replying to questions from the media, at the end of a three-day seminar on the Future of Europe, organised by the European Parliament, which concluded today.

In his closing remarks, he said that the EU is “running a risk of falling apart” and he himself has no illusion as to where the situation is.

He referred specifically to Brexit, noting that the June 23 decision of the British people “makes the EU and the UK weaker”, noting that the second largest economy of the Union is leaving.
