BERLIN (Reuters) – German Economy Minister Sigmar Gabriel warned on Thursday that the European Union could fall apart if populists in France or the Netherlands win in elections this year.

“The French presidential elections this spring are bitter fateful elections for Europe,” Gabriel told the Bundestag lower house of parliament.

He added: “After Brexit last year, if enemies of Europe manage again in the Netherlands or in France to get results then we face the threat that the largest civilization project of the 20th century, namely the European Union, could fall apart.”
