France and Germany Renew Postwar Vows of Friendship
France and Germany have renewed their vows of postwar friendship, aiming to show that the motor that has traditionally powered the EU project remains strong as nationalist and populist parties advance across the continent, writes the Guardian.
President Emmanuel Macron and Chancellor Angela Merkel signed the update to the 1963 Elysée treaty on Tuesday in the German border city of Aachen, residence of Charlemagne, the “father of Europe” who managed to unite much of western Europe in the ninth century.
“Both states will deepen their cooperation in foreign affairs, defence, external and internal security and development and at the same time work on strengthening the ability of Europe to act independently,” the treaty text states.
