Macron and Merkel to 'reconstruct' the EU

Macron and Merkel to 'reconstruct' the EU

Speaking alongside France's new President Emmanuel Macron, who made his first official trip overseas to Berlin, Chancellor Angela Merkel said the two countries agreed to work closely on a "road map" of reforms to make the European Union and the Eurozone stronger in the coming years.

Merkel said it was an honor that Macron chose to visit Berlin during his first full day in office, and said the countries' ministers would meet after an upcoming French legislative vote.

Ms. Merkel and her government have always been skeptical of proposals to pool more resources, believing that sharing eurozone money could let countries off the hook when it comes to balancing their budgets and making necessary reforms.

"I am happy that we can work together on a common roadmap for the European Union and the Euro Zone", he said.

Intel prepares its new beast: the new Core i9 with 12 cores
For the Kaby Lake-X processors, the better of the two will be the Core i7-7740K and is based on the latest 14nm+ process node. Also, all the four chips in the Skylake-X family will support quad channel DDR4 memory clocked at 2666 MHz.

Faced with the rise of populism and Brexit, the arrival of Macron to the presidency, (but even more so the elimination of Europhobic candidate for the extreme right candidate Marine Le Pen), has undeniably provoked relief in Berlin, as in many European capitals.

Ahead of his visit, Macron's ideas on reforming the eurozone - including giving it a separate budget and minister, moves that would require treaty change - had sparked scepticism in Berlin.

She told a G20 trade union event in Berlin on Wednesday that, while Britain would be free to change rules to its own advantage after leaving the bloc, it would pay a price if the EU had to take steps in response to preserve a level playing field.

After a private meeting with Hollande and his first speech as president, Macron headed up the rainy Champs Elysees on Sunday in an army vehicle, waving to small crowds of wellwishers who gathered along the famed avenue. He also said there would be a meeting between the two countries' cabinet ministers in the near future.

Before the incident, Brandon Drury continued his torrid hitting at home with a three-hit night that included a three-run home run. Lovullo also said even with a broken nose and fractured teeth, Iannetta is "remarkably upbeat", which is remarkable.

More than 20 French media organizations have signed an open letter to France's new president, Emmanuel Macron, to express concerns about restrictions on coverage.

It's a delicate balancing act, as Macron tries to redesign French politics by borrowing ministers from left and right and new faces.

Underlining the concerns over Macron's proposals, Germany's biggest selling daily Bild warned ahead of the French leader's meeting with Merkel that before seeking deeper European Union integration, "France must once again be at the same level as Germany politically and economically".

Macron sought to bat away German fears on debt, saying he was opposed to mutualising "old debt" between eurozone countries. "We need more pragmatism, less bureaucracy and a Europe that protects our citizens", he said. She is scheduled to give a television interview on Thursday night and an announcement is expected by week's end.

Boston fans chanted a naughty word toward Kelly Oubre Jr . on Wednesday night, and the Wizards fanbase was all up in arms over it. In the second quarter as Wall air-balled a floater and dipped to 1 for 7 from the floor, his second straight bad shooting start.

As HuffPost observed, Macron's decision to have an evenly represented cabinet brings to mind Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who in November of 2015 appointed 15 women to his 30-person cabinet.
