Juncker says EU incomplete without Switzerland

BERLIN, Dec 15 (Reuters) - Eurogroup Chairman Jean-Claude Juncker called for Switzerland to join the European Union, saying in a newspaper interview released on Wednesday that the 27-member bloc was incomplete without the Swiss.

“It remains a geostrategic absurdity that we have this white spot on the European map,” Juncker, who chairs the Eurogroup of euro zone finance ministers, said of Switzerland in an interview with German weekly Die Zeit. (Writing by Paul Carrel; Editing by Ruth Pitchford)
