“I want France to leave NATO’s unified military command. I will never agree that our troops are subordinate to the NATO command or the European command. France should return to the status in the alliance that it had from 1966 to 2009,” the French presidential candidate said.
National Rally candidate Marine Le Pen has said that if she wins the presidential election, she will withdraw France from NATO’s unified military command.
“When hostilities are over, I will propose a strategic rapprochement between NATO and Russia,” Le Pen said.
She added that the key principles of her foreign policy will be “independence, equidistance and constancy.”
