France planning to build and DOMINATE EU Army Nato claims as nation neglects duties
FRANCE is neglecting its contribution to Nato so it can pursue its dream of an EU army, it has been claimed.

France pulled out of Nato in 1966 and rejoined in 2009
A well-placed Nato source said Paris was concentrating its diplomatic efforts on creating the pan-European force, over which it believes it would wield more control than the existing north atlantic military alliance.
The Belgium-based Nato source told Express.co.uk French officials were directing their energy towards an EU army at the expense of its existing military obligations.
France pulled out of the US-led alliance in 1966 and only rejoined seven years ago, despite deep reservations at the time about forfeiting its military independence.
Now it appears fresh doubts are being raised in Paris about Washington’s dominance in Nato.
Asked if any member states were not pulling their weight in the multi-national alliance, a Nato representative speaking to Express.co.uk on condition of anonymity named France as one of the culprits.
The source claimed Paris was frustrated with its lack of say and would rather concentrate on an EU army which it could better influence.
When France rejoined Nato in 2009 it made several demands, including maintaining full discretion over France’s contribution to joint military operations.
It also insisted on maintaining its nulcear independence, opting out of Nato’s Nuclear Planning Group, which determines the Alliance’s nuclear policy.
But Nato insists France has been a “faithful ally” to the alliance despite its 40-year break.
France and Germany have been vocal in their support of a combined EU force in recent years, as both nations push for further European integration.
A German white paper leaked earlier this month revealed Berlin was pushing for permanent cooperation between EU member states’ national armies.
It follows sustained French calls for an EU army, with French Prime Minister Manuel Valls claiming last year that such a force already existed.

He said at the time: “We hope to make progress with the European defence policy, which is indispensable in light of the peace and security challenges that Europe faces from its surrounding countries, to which we must find a common response.”
