Leaders of the lower chambers of the national parliaments of Germany, Italy, France and Luxembourg called for the strengthening of European integration and creation of federation on the basis of existing EU. Their open letter was published on Sunday in Turin newspaper La Stampa.
"The time has come to move towards closer political integration to the Federal Union of states which would have broader powers. We are well aware that such a prospect causes a strong resistance, but inactivity of some people can not become paralysis for everyone.
Those who believe in European ideals should be able to give them a new life instead of being powerless and see their slow decline. The Member States that do not want to immediately join such closer integration should be able to do it later ", the report says.
