"It's about war and peace": Merkel urges restraint in Middle East

Macron confirmed that the French and Iranian foreign ministers would meet soon to ensure progress.

But it is now time for "Germany to draw up its response by June" on proposed European reforms, Macron said.

Recall, German Chancellor Angela Merkel assured that the partners will continue to make every effort for the restoration of sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.

Since Bretton Woods agreements, in 1944, Europe has left Washington with economic leadership: rupture of agreement with Iran and imposition of sanctions is penultimate proof that this leadership can become a weapon against European interests While a billionaire lenguaraz and eccentric with a unusual toupee feels in Oval Office. "Don't be weak", he said. It is unclear whether Chancellor Merkel can count on public opinion to bolster President Macron's chances to win the day in Brussels. And even though, as a Macron aide was quick to note, the German defense budget will increase in euro terms, it will decline from 2020 as a percentage of gross domestic product, contrary to Merkel's pledge to boost it closer to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation requirement of 2 percent of GDP.

What are Macron's political plans for the European Union?


To do so, Europe needs to be strong, the French leader said.

"The American logic is an isolationist, protectionist and unilateral logic", Le Drian told French radio station RTL.

Mr Macron echoed Mrs Merkel's criticisms of the U.S. decision to leave the nuclear deal and said that Europe should show greater unity and strength to become the main guarantor of stability in the Middle East. "But the economy and the eurozone aren't the only topics that matter for Europe's future". Even European allies are agreed on that - the disagreements are mainly over timing.

Expectations of a regional flare-up were stoked by Mr Trump's announcement on Tuesday that he was withdrawing the United States from the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers. "I know someone in Germany who took in a young Syrian and after four days said, "The greatest thing Germany invented was the Holocaust", Lagerfield said.

Iranian lawmakers have set a paper USA flag ablaze at parliament after President Donald Trump's nuclear deal pullout, shouting, "Death to America!" The chancellor hinted that Trump's "America First" slogan and his frequent clashes with USA allies across the Atlantic, was indicative of a wider schism in the western alliance.
