PARIS (Reuters) – France’s Foreign Minister on Tuesday rejected accusations by the country’s far-right and far-left parties that President Emmanuel Macron had struck a deal that sold Paris short, saying he was “historic” and demonstrated European solidarity.
“You call it failure. I call it a historic breakthrough, ”Le Drian replied to legislators in parliament. “It was normal to help Italy and Spain because they were the most affected by the crisis. Europe has found solidarity. “
