(18.05.2019) Wie die „Welt am Sonntag“ berichtet, sieht der Präsident des Bundesamtes für Verfassungsschutz (BfV), Thomas Haldenwang, erhebliche Risiken in der nachrichtendienstlichen Zusammenarbeit mit Österreich. Entsprechende Äußerungen sollen in der vergangenen Woche im Parlamentarischen Kontrollgremium (PKGr) des Deutschen Bundestages gefallen sein.
The Jewish lobby group for the EU has yet to distance itself from the Danish party which recently aligned itself with far-right parties including those of Marine Le Pen, Matteo Salvini and the AfD.
A key institute run by the American Jewish Committee, one of the largest Jewish advocacy organizations in the world, continues to maintain ties with the leader of a Danish party that recently joined a new European-wide far-right alliance.
He said that „much had changed“ since the 2007 Lisbon Treaty, pointing to the eurozone and migration crises and Brexit.
A treaty renegotiation would require unanimous consent from all EU member states. In the same interview, Kurz expressed scepticism over any cooperation between the centre-right European People’s Party (EPP) — to which the OeVP belongs — and parties further to the right in the European Parliament.
Marine Le Pen has asserted that neither she nor her party want France’s withdrawal from the eurozone.
Speaking at a gathering of her supporters on Saturday ahead of the European elections, the National Rally (RN) leader said that her platform would now “look to change the EU from within”.
A small number of EU member states argued for an extension to June 30, but most argued for much longer: to December 2019, or even March 2020
The group includes Mr Salvini’s League, as well as France’s far-right National Rally (formerly National Front), Austria’s Freedom Party and the Netherland’s Party for Freedom. Those parties have long sat together in the European Parliament.
But Mr Salvini was also joined on Monday by the far-right Alternative for Germany’s co-leader Joerg Meuthen, Olli Kotro of the Eurosceptic populist Finns party, and Anders Vistisen of the right-wing, populist Danish People’s Party.
