“The international stage is so under stress. Conflicts build up. I would say that the EU and Europe are one of our few security grips, don’t underestimate that. ” This was stated by former Minister of Finance and former chairman of the Eurogroup Jeroen Dijsselbloem at Buitenhof. “In order to maintain that position, it is therefore also necessary to come to compromises.” He sees opportunities to reach such a compromise on the problem of the crisis, which is particularly hard on Southern Europe. According to Dijsselbloem, there was a false start at the start of the crisis, but now the proposals of both Merkel and Macron and the ‘miserly four’, of which the Netherlands is part, leave enough room to come to a joint decision. .
