Terrorism spending outside Stability Pact - Juncker

EC head announces flexibility for such costs

(ANSA) - Brussels, November 18 - France and other countries' spending against terrorism should be assessed outside the EU's Stability and Growth Pact, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said Wednesday in a de facto affirmation of the principle of 'flexibility' for such costs. "France must address grave acts of terrorism and must address supplementary spending that must not have the same treatment as other spending" vis-a-vis the Pact, he said, adding that the principle "is valid for other countries too".
