German SPD leader Schulz wants United States of Europe by 2025

German SPD leader Schulz wants United States of Europe by 2025

The leader of Germany's Social Democrats (SPD) took aim at the Republic and criticised U.S. technology firms Apple, Facebook and Google on Thursday, saying a strong Europe was needed to make sure they stick to the rules.

Martin Schulz, the head of Germany's Social Democrats, wants to push for ever-closer European integration and turn the EU into a "United States of Europe" by 2025.

The leader of Germany's Social Democrats Martin Schulz called on his party to uphold its national responsibility and to strengthen Europe by backing talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives to build a new government.

'Europe is our life insurance, ' said Schulz. "It is the only chance we have to keep up with the other great regions of the world".

Schulz said only a more united European Union could meet major challenges such as combating climate change, managing mass migration or stopping multinational companies from dodging taxes.

He reiterated that the eurozone should have more investment and a common finance minister and budget.

"France is making proposals and Germany is not engaging".

Though Schulz has said at the start of his campaign that he would not join a coalition with Merkel, he has been under pressure from the German president to find a compromise with the Conservatives and avoid the need for fresh elections. The SPD will debate the idea of once again joining such a coalition at a congress on December 7-9.

Their leader, Kevin Kuehnert, warned that, after four election defeats in a row, joining another grand coalition would threaten the very existence of the party, and that the leadership's backflip had sparked "a deep crisis of trust" at the base.

He said the renewal of the SPD can not be placed above the interests of the nation.

At a previously scheduled party congress Thursday, Schulz is seeking members' approval for a resolution approving talks on "whether and in what form" the Social Democrats can support a new government.
