Readers of the Chinese newspaper вЂњHuanqiu ShibaoвЂќ spoke about the results of the meeting of the leaders of the EU countries, following which their new strategy was approved.
Many considered that such opposition to the вЂњOne Belt, One RoadвЂќ initiative is due to the influence of the United States.
вЂњWouldn't it be easier if the EU simply recognizes that the United States is their suzerain country?вЂќ вЂ” expressed the opinion of one of the readers.
вЂњThe EU is only suitable to be a follower of the United States. If he wants to become a pole of the world, the United States will never allow him to do this, вЂњ another user believes.
вЂњI do not know what is wrong with the brains of the leaders of the EU countries. Their infrastructure is ruined at home, and they want to вЂњhelpвЂќ others, вЂњ another commenter wrote.
вЂњThe EU does not want to join forces with the United States, but the end result of their activities is only the strengthening of their influence. The EU acts only as an auxiliary step and will not be able to increase its influence. That's how the European Union has become a help for America!вЂќ вЂ” the readers summed up.
A meeting of EU foreign ministers was held in Brussels on Monday. The heads of departments decided to extend the anti-Russian sanctions and approved a new strategy вЂњGlobally connected EuropeвЂќ. Its goal is to increase the competitiveness of the EU, and it is based on the idea of opposing the Chinese initiative вЂњOne Belt вЂ” One RoadвЂќ.
