In a speech to the Bundestag German Parliament, Eisenstaing's chief said that "Europe should not become a toy of great powers". He called for a more integrated European Union, and certainly with a common Eurozone budget.

Macron stressed the desire to have Germany's support for a European army that, as he said, could reduce the bloc's dependence on the United States, as he called for a new tax on internet giants and technology.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has expressed her support for some of these ideas, but some of them are seen as controversial in Berlin.

The French leader spoke of "no memory" nationalist forces as he urged progressive forces to unite in an increasingly unclear world.

"There are many forces that want to hinder us, intervening in our public debates, attack our liberal democracies, and are also trying to put us against each other. In this global order, which we have to take seriously into account, our true strength lies in unity, "Macron said.

US President Donald Trump was involved in a long discussion on social networks due to Macron's similar expressions a week ago when the French leader called nationalism as "treason to patriotism" as he commemorated along with other heads of state The 100th anniversary of the First World War.
