BERLIN, Oct 14 (Reuters) – Europe can solely contend with the rise of China if it speaks with one voice, German Chancellor Angela Merkel stated on Thursday, calling for extra unity throughout the continent.
“How we deal with the rise of China as an economic, political and military power … depends very much on whether Europe really speaks with one voice,” Merkel stated in Spain after receiving the Carlos V prize.
“Europe is only as strong as it is united,” she stated.
