Polish Finance Minister mentioned risk of war in Europe

Source: Warsaw Business Journal

At a speech before the European Parliament on Wednesday, Polish Finance Minister Jacek Rostowski said “Europe was in danger” and that if the euro zone collapsed, the European Union itself wouldn't be able to survive for long. But what really caused a stir were the FM's allusions to the possibility of war in Europe as a result of the current crisis.

“I recently met a friend who worked with me during the period of [economic] transformation and is now the president of a big Polish bank. He said, 'You know after such economic and political shocks, it rarely is the case that after ten years, there would be no catastrophic war. I am seriously thinking of getting my children an American green card.'”

Mr Rostowski concluded by saying European leaders “cannot allow that to happen.”
