The new law would give the EU the ability to impose counter-sanctions on individuals, companies and entire countries. Effectively, it allows the EU to fight back against one of its members should they become in a difficult position.
The EU has been planning for the so-called United States of Europe in recent weeks – with an event being held to discuss the potential for this.
Germany included in their proposals following the announcement of a coalition government that they would be “evolution of the EU towards a European federal state”.
The new German Government includes a ‘traffic-light’ coalition between the Social Democrats (SPD), the Greens, and the liberal FDP.
However, not everyone is in support of it.
Speaking at the “How to reform the (European – PAP) Union for the future of Europe?” event on Friday, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki made clear his feelings towards the suggestion – labelling it as a “dangerous utopia”.
Mr Morawiecki said: “We say that the creation of a single European state, ‘the United States of Europe’ is a kind of utopia, a dangerous utopia that cannot be constructed solely on the basis of legal assumptions and the extended competences of individual institutions.
“Here our voice may be weaker or stronger, but the more we speak to common sense and show that these differences not only cannot and should not be ‘equalised’.”
He added this “would impoverish the European heritage” and would lead towards “a very dangerous experiment with many utopian features.”
The Poland PM also took a swipe at the common currency project which was introduced by the EU.
He said: He said: “The eurozone was created 20 years ago and the question is still hanging in the air whether… this is an optimal currency area.
“I used to deal with this in the past and I can say, based on the available literature, about the evolution of economic integration processes, that there are increasingly more indications that the eurozone is not an optimal currency.”
He added the eurozone is “a collision of a certain political will of some elites with the harsh economic reality”.

A number of MEPs have also vowed to take on the new German coalition Government should they choose to speed up plans for the proposed super-state.
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, French far-right leader Marine Le Pen and Jaroslaw Kaczynski, head of Poland’s ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party, all came together at a joint conference to speak about the proposal.
Ms Le Pen explained the alliance is “all the more necessary now that we are faced with a German coalition which has made federalism a priority and will definitely also increase migration pressure”.
Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki joined Ms Le Pen in unity tweeting they agree in a wish for “a Europe of nations to give back to the peoples of Europe their freedom and their sovereignty”.
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said: “We want to change the politics of Brussels.”
Following the joint conference on Saturday, the alliance released a joint statement in defiance against the proposal.
They said they would not support “a Europe governed by a self-appointed elite”.
The alliance added that “only the sovereign institutions of the states have full democratic legitimacy”.
