The leader of French far-right National Front party and a presidential candidate Marine Le Pen said at the Freedom for Europe conference that 2017 would be the year of "awakening" for the continental Europe.
Axar.az reports that, on Saturday, Le Pen took part in a conference of Europe of Nations and Freedom, a far-right group within the European parliament, which includes members of National Front, Freedom party of Austria, Alternative for Germany, Dutch Party for Freedom and a few other parties with similar political views.
Le Pen noted that Anglo-Saxon countries had had their awakening already, referring to the United Kingdom's decision to leave the European Union and the United States voting to choose Donald Trump as the president.
"The first serious strike at our past, which will result in domino effect, is Brexit," French politician said.
Le Pen said that the present was the time of change, with the old world giving way to the new one.
