A champion of the United States of Europe concept, famed German businessman Reinhold Würth is concerned that Europe divided within itself will be torn apart by the United States and China, Neue Zürcher Zeitung reported.
Not surprisingly then, Würth wants to see greater integration of the European Union.
In line with clear thinking, gaining more ground in the West, the businessman expressed a lot of understanding with regard to Russia’s attitudes towards the Ukrainian crisis in an interview with a Swiss daily newspaper.
The 80-year-old, ranking among Germany’s richest people, is angry with US President Barack Obama for calling Russia a regional power. “Such remarks humiliate Russia,” Neue Zürcher Zeitung cited the entrepreneur as saying.
Würth is not the only one thinking this way. “Therefore, it is not self-evident why Chancellor Merkel still keeps a rigid stance on Putin in line with the US position and why Berlin still maintains sanctions,” the daily said.
