German Chancellor Angela Merkel delivered remarks to members of the European Parliament on the future of Europe. During her remarks, she expressed support for a “real European army,” defended Germany’s immigration policies and called for the end of “nationalism and egotism” in Europe. Following her remarks, European party leaders responded in support but some like former U.K. Independence Party leader Nigel Farage criticized the Chancellor’s immigration policy. Mr. Farage referred to Europe’s migration crisis as a “stampede” and labeled Brexit as “liberation” for the U.K. The presidents of the European Parliament and European Commission also gave remarks during this 90-minute debate. close
