Helga Zepp-LaRouche Backs Eurasian Integration, Rather Than Outmoded Euro-Centrism

Aug. 30, 2018 (EIRNS)—Yesterday, Sputnik ran a wire yesterday which counterposed the views of Helga Zepp-LaRouche, whom they had interviewed, with German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas’s proposals for “Europe” to unite against the United States—and Russia and China, in reality.

Sputnik presented Zepp-LaRouche’s views as follows:

“Helga Zepp-LaRouche, the leader of the German Civil Rights Movement Solidarity party, told Sputnik that Maas’ call for the rest of the European Union to counter jointly the U.S. sanctions, represented an outdated ‘Euro-centric’ mindset, in which Europe should act as a united front.

“ ‘The proposal of German Foreign Minister Maas reflects, in the world of today, an outdated Euro-centric view, which at best would bring together a “coalition of the willing,” given the fact that many European countries want to improve relations with Russia,’ Zepp-LaRouche argued.

“She said she believed that the German foreign minister might only increase the centrifugal forces in the European Union by his proposal.

“Speaking about Maas’ call for developing a common EU security policy and forming a kind of an independent defense union, Zepp-LaRouche said she believed that the formation of a new security structure was only possible with the support of Eurasian states.

“ ‘The only possible basis for Europe to strengthen its own defense, is the creation of a new security architecture, based on an integrated economic space of Eurasia,’ Zepp-LaRouche stated.”

The dispatch is headlined, “Germany To Fight Alone To Review EU Policy against U.S. Sanctions—German MP.” They also interviewed a French Member of the European Parliament from Marine Le Pen’s Front National party.
