“Until the formation of the government, Mrs Chancellor - dear Angela Merkel - and myself will continue to work hand in hand on major issues, on which we seek to bring Franco-German solutions, as we have done from day one," Macron said, speaking on the steps of Élysée Palace before a working dinner with the head of the German government.
Merkel, in turn, said: "We have also discussed that we want to make everything possible, from the German side, so that there is no standstill in the necessary decisions that have to be made."
In this context, the Chancellor mentioned a wide range of issues, from Afghanistan, Belarus and Ukraine to the EU's emissions targets.
According to Deutsche Welle, the leaders of Germany and France touched, in particular, on the relations of the European Union with its eastern neighbors.
As it was reported earlier, German Chancellor Angela Merkel paid an official visit to Ukraine on August 22. The Chancellor held negotiations with President Volodymyr Zelensky.
In August, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine announced that President of the French Republic Emmanuel Macron may visit Ukraine until the end of this year.
