Scholz and Macron say that Berlin and Paris always reach an agreement

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and French President Emmanuel Macron agreed that relations between the two countries are good and not in crisis, as some have said in the past.

“We will always agree and we will move forward,” Macron said during the French-German Council of Ministers on Tuesday.

Scholz spoke about the cohesion between Berlin and Paris during the coronavirus pandemic and their joint support for Ukraine. “That is why I am quite sure that the Franco-German friendship will continue in the future, especially when it comes to economic decisions about the future,” he said at the meeting at Meseberg Palace near Berlin.

“We always come to an agreement,” he said, adding that this was true in the past and was a good prediction for the future.

Macron emphasized that there have always been crises in recent decades, but even if a proposal was made and there was no immediate response, it did not mean this was a crisis.

People don’t always share the same views, and that’s legitimate, he said. The task is to overcome the differences and find a common solution. This would never be completely German or completely French, but French-German, Macron said.

“Precisely because our two countries also embody different perspectives, there is a fairly good chance that any understanding that takes place between the two of us will also work well for many others,” Scholz said.
