Why does everybody want to divide the EU, asks Sassoli. And he provides the answer

Speaking in the European Parliament on 31 January, hours before the UK leaves the European Union, Parliament President David Sassoli asked a question which he said was fundamental during the last three years: “Why does everybody want to divide the EU”.

“This is the question of all questions,” he said, referring to global players who are seeking to make the EU more vulnerable and to some of the EU’s own ranks who are playing to the same tune.

Listen and watch how Sassoli answered the fundamental question.
