UK: David Miliband backs French plans for stronger EU defence role

That’s what the Telegraph reports.

France, which now holds the EU’s rotating presidency, has announced that deepening military cooperation between member states will be a key priority. A European military staff, planning cell and defence agency already exist. In the past, Britain opposed giving the EU any hand in defence policy, fearing this would undermine Nato and the Atlantic alliance with the United States. But Mr Miliband offered broad support for France’s plans.

Perhaps first he must state what is Europe for him. Because it seems that Milliband would like better an alliance with Russia and North African countries than with US.
