However, 12 countries of the European Union opposed this project, the Financial Times reported referring to the letter of the Minister of Finance of the Netherlands, Wopke Hoekstra, to Eurogroup president Mario Centeno. The Dutch minister stated about the existing “wide discrepancies” in the issue of the need to create a unified budget for the euro area.
