The euro zone should be split into two with a strong cluster around Germany and a weak cluster including France, the co-leader of Germany’s far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, Joerg Meuthen, said in a Reuters interview.
“The euro is a seed of discord in Europe that has different currency cultures and different competitiveness levels,” Meuthen said.
The AfD has climbed to 15 percent in opinion polls ahead of September’s election, but no other party in Germany is willing to form a coalition with it.
