President of the Democratic Party of Serbia stated that future of the European Union lies in at least three fragmented alliances around influential centerpieces.
MOSCOW (Sputnik), Anna Liatsou – The future of the European Union lies in at least three fragmented alliances around influential centerpieces, Sanda Raskovic Ivic, President of the Democratic Party of Serbia, told Sputnik.
“The EU will one day eventually fall apart on at least three alliances,” Raskovic Ivic said.
The official’s forecast comes amid increasing disagreement within the 28-nation bloc. Raskovic Ivic projected current differences of opinion in the European Union will lead to further division lines.
“One alliance is going to be around Germany, the Baltic countries, maybe central European countries plus Croatia and Slovenia. The other alliance is going to be around France and it might take Mediterranean countries. And the third is going to be Great Britain that will go with the United States,” the Serbian official told Sputnik.
The Greek anti-austerity government’s victory in January sparked talks of its exit from the eurozone. In the United Kingdom, nationalist parties’ encroachment on the eve of general elections in May has also spurred debate over its EU membership.
Serbia will be prevented from joining the fledgling Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) by the European Union, Sanda Raskovic Ivic said.
“Serbia has to decide whether it is going to work on joining the EU, stay neutral or join the Eurasian Union which we will never join, because the EU don’t want us [to],” Raskovic Ivic said in an interview.
