In the Austrian programme Puls 4 Arena, the Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz felt he had to emphasise once again that there is no “EU line”. On the question of diplomatic expulsion one could not speak of EU states brought into line, since “about one third of the states” had come to a different decision, among them also Austria.
The reasons given by Kurz in the Austrian case were its neutrality and that Vienna is the seat of many international organisations. In addition, the country has a tradition as a bridge builder to Russia. There is a cross-party consensus. •
