PARIS, Nov 13 French Foreign Minister Catherine Colonna believes that Europe should seek greater autonomy from the United States rather than wait in suspense for the results of the American elections.
On Tuesday, mid-term congressional elections were held in the United States, the results of the vote have not yet been summed up, but according to media forecasts, the Republicans will have a majority in the House of Representatives. Kevin McCarthy, the current Republican Minority Leader, said the same thing.
“It's an interesting election, but it's too early to draw conclusions because not all the results are known. I would simply say that if the Europeans do not want to be in suspense in every American election, they must find a path to greater autonomy, which does not mean more distance from the United States,” Colonna said in an interview with the Parisien newspaper.
