EU Should Not Follow Aggressive US Diplomacy – French Politician
According to US President Barack Obama, the ‘boring’ European democracy needs a more appealing image.

"I think there's no doubt that what Belgium needs is a version of Politico," he said in December 2014.

Politico is planning to open its office in the European quarter in Brussels. It has also signed an agreement with the German publishing house Axel Springer and is planning to invest tens of millions of dollars in the project.

More than 35 journalists from 20 different countries have already been hired for work.

Politico showed in Washington that politics can also be written in a thrilling way, the portal’s editor-in-chief Matthew Kaminski said, adding that the aim of the portal is to make Brussels more “human” and show that politics are a “great show”.
