Macron and Merkel unite in struggle for Europe

Macron and Merkel unite in struggle for EuropeBeleaguered at home, belittled abroad, Emmanuel Macron of France and Germany’s Angela Merkel will use a Berlin meeting on Sunday to bolster their alliance as champions of a united Europe fraught with resurgent nationalism. After weeks of stalemate on issues such as eurozone reforms and how to get internet giants to pay more tax, the French president and German chancellor have recently gone out of their way to demonstrate unity and common purpose. Macron gave Merkel pride of place last weekend during commemorations marking the end of World War I where he spoke out against nationalism — a message he is likely to hammer home again Sunday when addressing Germany’s parliament as part of ceremonies to commemorate victims of war.
