The document that the PP is going to send this week to the government and parliamentary forces in search of an agreement on defense policy, within the framework of the NATO summit in Madrid, contains a proposal to shore up spending in this area.
At a time when the Executive has committed to raising GDP to 2% in 2030, with the reluctance of the purple part of the coalition, Alberto Núñez Feijóo’s team wants to agree with the PSOE on an economic shield for defense, and make it up.
The Popular Party understands that through a new State pact, “the guarantee of adequate financing of national defense must be achieved, with a law that guarantees economic sufficiency and stability, as well as the dedication of 20% of spending to investment in equipment and I D i». This was detailed by popular sources.
In that law the “minimum spending threshold” will be established, as other sources in Genoa point out to this newspaper. In this way, the PP wants to guarantee that it will reach 2% of GDP and even exceed that threshold set by NATO to better distribute efforts within the alliance, in the face of US complaints. “If you agree with us, you do not agree with Podemos” summarized in the main floor of Genoa, 13. “We reach out to the PSOE so that Defense stops being the place to cut” funds when preparing the Budgets.
In addition, the formation led by Feijóo supports the “creation of a European military force, guaranteeing the strategic autonomy of the EU and thus contributing to transatlantic and global security as a complement to NATO.” Hence, the popular now advocate the “strengthening of Spanish participation in collective security schemes, particularly NATO.”
It must be remembered that on Monday the PP already detailed that its proposal will include the specific request that NATO place the southern borders of the EU under its umbrella, referring, above all, to Ceuta and Melilla, to dissuade Morocco from using new migratory crises as a method of pressure.
What the main opposition party is asking for is “the guarantee of protection of all national territory with particular attention to non-peninsular territories, specifically including the guarantee of security and allied protection on the southern border of the European Union.”
