Sinn Féin has lashed out at Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael claiming no party can be trusted on Irish neutrality.
It says it is the EU Army is created and the EU Defense Fund will help bring that.
Lynn Boylan's MEP for Dublin, says' if it talks like a duck and duck, then it is a duck.
She says the Irish people have already chosen to support positive neutrality and the country's long history of UN peacekeeping.
Ms Boylan said: "What is the Irish people are?
"And that they [the public] would pay much that the government pay [the Defence Forces] appropriately.
"That they are not being forced into poverty, which is the current situation with our Defense Forces. And they continue to carry out peacekeeping duties."
In a statement on the party's website, Ms Boylan says Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael "want further integration and militarization and their groups in the EU.
“Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael say they support neutrality but every single thing they do for decades proves the exact opposite. "
It added that it is clear that the EU Army is being created and are putting on the EU defense fund of € 13bn in place to help bring it around.
"They are not in the real world. They cannot be trusted to defend Irish neutrality because when it really matters."
