EU’s Karl-Heinz Lambertz: ‘Empowering regions and cities very important for Europe’s future’

The head of the European Union’s Committee of the Regions defends the idea of strengthening the bloc’s regions and cities, and denies that its regional policy and funding have emboldened secessionists in Catalonia and other autonomous areas. In an interview with France 24 he insists that: “Greater autonomy will be a good thing for many regions in Europe, but I don’t see a Europe of 70 or 80 new states. Nation-states have an important role to play."
