The European Union has many benefits. As a governing body, the large bureaucracy formed among 29 member nations can be cumbersome. The entire zone should have one foreign policy so there aren't any questions about treaties, wars and foreign trade among member nations. It's nice that much of Europe is united in one government. Yet it is time for Europe to start acting as one instead of continually engaging in regional squabbles among member nations.
Each country in the European Union should be allowed to have its own foreign policy. They are each separate countries and so their interests might be separate. If Europe wants to act as a unified front on all matters, it should just become one country, instead of the many it is today.
