Merkel wants to rekindle European Union spark in first date with Macron

French President Emmanuel Macron said on Monday that the possibility of change to European Union treaties was "not taboo" and that he wanted to see better protection for Europe's workers.Speaking in Berlin on his first foreign visit since his inauguration on Sunday, and at his first joint news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, he also dispelled the idea circulating in German media that he was in favour of turning national debts of euro zone countries into euro-zone debt.

The new French leader recognizes that many Europeans see the EU as a distant, uncaring bureaucracy and wants to remedy that through vast consultations with citizens across Europe.

He has said he wants to reform the eurozone, giving it a common budget and its own finance minister, but he will need German backing.

Last week Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel of the center-left Social Democrats (SPD) - junior partner in Merkel's coalition - accused Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble of the CDU of trying to "torpedo" Macron's European Union reform plans for political reasons ahead of Germany's election in September.

"The election of the new French president offers us here the possibility to bring dynamism into the development of Europe", she said, emboldened after her conservatives won a regional vote on Sunday that boosts her chances of re-election in September.

Humming beneath them, though, concerns that some of his ideas might end up costing German taxpayers more.

Mrs Merkel, 62, was cautious on Mr Macron's call...

Macron's staff had initially said the government would be named late Tuesday but the presidential palace now says in a statement the announcement will come Wednesday afternoon.

The visit signalled Mr Macron's intentions to move rapidly on campaign promises to revive support for the beleaguered European Union by reforming and strengthening it.

He also tried to show solidarity with Germany on the migrant crisis - an issue on which Merkel has pressed for European Union countries to work together - by saying that a common asylum policy was one area where Paris could cooperate with Berlin.

"No renunciaré, destitúyanme si quieren" — Temer
El mandatario nacional convocó a una reunión informar con distintos integrantes de partidos políticos afines a su gobierno.

Macron, who swept into Berlin with a new German-speaking prime minister, Édouard Philippe, newly installed, reached for historic rhetoric in his speech, announcing that he would seek not just short-term results in tackling French unemployment, but nothing less than the "historic reconstruction of Europe and the eurozone".

France's new President Macron urges major reforms in EU; German Chancellor Merkel says Berlin open to EU treaty change.

Macron, France's youngest ever president, took the reins of power from Hollande at the Elysee Palace a week after his resounding victory over far-right leader Marine Le Pen in an election that was watched worldwide.

Philippe is the mayor of the gritty northern port of Le Havre and an MP for the region since 2012 who studied at the same universities as Macron and shares many of his views on the economy and social issues. "It's not realistic", German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble told Le Figaro newspaper.

"There is an agreement within the government that, given the hard situations we in Europe are being confronted with, a plan with treaty changes is not a good idea", Foreign Ministry spokesman Martin Schaefer also said.

In Berlin, Mr Macron declined to answer a question about his new prime minister, only saying the choice of Mr Philippe is part of the new political landscape he is promoting.
