Speech by Mr Jean-Yves Le Drian, La Haye (28/01/2020)
Speech by Mr Jean-Yves Le Drian, Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs at the conference of Dutch Ambassadors The Hague, Tuesday, 28th January 2020.
"And for us – in France and the Netherlands – this question raises another: is Europe powerless to deal with the emerging global disruptions to the world order? For Europe is the meeting point between our countries and the world.
I believe that it has the means to both affirm itself as a vital player in international competition and to be the master of its own destiny. And the two go hand in hand."
