The Sinn Fein MEP Lynn Boylan has strongly rejected calls being made for a European army. Ms Boylan was reacting to statements made by the President of the EU Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker fora common military force. During his State of the Union Address to the EuropeanParliament yesterday, Mr Juncker told MEPs the EU needs a single military headquarters. Mr Juncker is also proposing the establishment of a European Defence Fund to boost research and innovation in Defence capabilities. However Lynn Boylan says Sinn Fein are opposed to such a move.
