Denmark’s Soevndal Is Against ‘Core of Two’ in Europe, FAZ Says

Denmark’s foreign minister, Villy Soevndal, said there shouldn’t be a “core of two” countries within the European Union, referring to Germany and France, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reported.

Soevndal said he doesn’t fear a decoupling from the 17 countries in the eurozone for Denmark, which didn’t adopt the euro, the newspaper said. Denmark isn’t seeking to become part of the euro area at present, Soevndal told the newspaper in an interview.
