France, Germany propose to reform the European Union following Brexit

Germany and France have prepared a plan to reform the European Union, which envisages deep integration of E.U. member states.

It is reported by the Polish TV channel TVP Info, which obtained a copy of the document signed by the German and French Foreign Ministries.

According to the channel, on Monday, June 27, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier intends to hand over the nine-page document to the Visegrad Four counterparts during their meeting in Prague.

"If the proposed document is implemented, then they will set up a single European state - instead of the European Union - which will depend on the strongest players in Europe," said the Polish TV channel.

The member states will not have the right to have their own armies, security services, separate Criminal Code, and national currency. The document envisages creating unified police forces, an overall tax system and so on.

The member states actually lose control over their borders and procedures of receiving and resettling refugees within their territories. The project also provides for introducing a single visa system as well as conducting a common foreign policy.

"France and Germany share a common destiny and a common set of values that provide the foundation for an ever closer union between their people. We will therefore move further towards political union in Europe and invite the other Europeans to join us in this endeavour", the document preamble states.
