European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said that Europe needs «credible military capabilities» during her address at the World Economic Forum in Davos, on Wednesday. The EU «set up the building blocks of a European defence union,» added the top European official. Von der Leyen, who took part in the Libya peace talks in Berlin last Sunday, praised the efforts of the international... Еще community and guaranteed Brussels' support towards «reconciliation and reconstruction.» «It takes very little power to break a fragile balance, but the true power lies in putting the pieces together — back together again», she said, adding that «hard power is an important tool without any question, but it is never the only one.» Commenting on the climate emergency, von der Leyen stressed the urgency of the issue, reiterating the European aim of becoming the world's first climate neutral continent by 2050. The World Economic Forum 2020 takes place between January 21 and 24, with around 1,500 world leaders set to attend to discuss global, regional and industrial agendas under the theme 'Stakeholders for a Cohesive and Sustainable World.'
