The Francophone liberal politician said "I think that the lesson to be learned from this crisis is that we need to be able to take a resolute approach to tackle crises at a European level.”
“I call for a true European Crisis Centre. We currently have a couple of instruments at our disposal, but in the future it will be necessary to put more means at Europe’s disposal.”
Mr Mchel added that a number of European countries share his view.
"A unified command structure is needed as is a true European Civil Defence Agency. Just look at how important it is to be able to collectively manage the material we have at our dispossal. A true European Crisis Centre would be able to anticipate issues better and provide greater solidarity”, Mr Michel added.
