BERLIN - French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel want to work intensively to reform the European Union. The leaders announced Monday at a joint press conference in Berlin to work on a 'roadmap' with necessary measures.
The German and French governments are planning to sit around the table in July to discuss important issues. The goal is to make the eurozone more vulnerable to crises. Merkel said that European treaties could possibly be adapted.
The French president, in turn, said that Germany and France had come to a 'historical' point. The advancement of populists in Europe would require the two countries to cooperate intensively. Macron, too, wants to reform not only the EU, but also promised to implement 'radical reforms' in its own country.
