ANGELA Merkel is integral not just for the survival of the Eurozone but if she is removed from power then the instability created could bring down the whole European Union, Malta Foreign Minister Abela Carmelo suggested on BBC Newsnight.
Ahead of crunch talks of the European Council which will focus on migration, security and defence, Mr Carmelo was invited onto the flagship programme to discuss Angela Merkel.
The Foreign Minister was asked how important it is for the Eurozone that Angela Merkel survives.
“We know that we have a number of challenges so the better that governments are stable is good to tackle these issues together.
“So it’s not just good for the Eurozone but for the future of the European Union itself because there are people who are saying that Europe is so divided on migration issue that they are very sceptic about the future of the EU.
Angela Merkel has divided her nation following her decision to open her borders to migrants in 2015.
Germany’s Interior Minister Horst Seehofer has threatened to resign from office as soon as Sunday if she fails to obtain a compromise on EU-wide migration from her European counterparts.
