Brexit campaigners have seized on the comment by Federica Mogherini as proof that claims by the Remain camp – that an EU army would never happen – were false.
Ms Mogherini’s comment follows a recent summit where Germany’s Angela Merkel, France’s Francois Hollande and Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi agreed to set up an EU military. She said that Brussels is preparing to forward a timetable setting out steps to create EU military structures “to act autonomously” from NATO.
She said: “We have the political space today to do things that were not really doable in previous years.” During the EU referendum the Daily Express revealed that the Treaty of Lisbon committed Britain to joining an EU military and would not need to be ratified in a referendum in the UK. Meanwhile the Germans and Dutch have already formed a joint army and navy which is set to include the Czechs who have also made an agreement with Hungary.
Ukip defence spokesman Mike Hookem said: “An EU army is not some Eurosceptic fantasy."
