BERLIN May 15 German Chancellor Angela Merkel
said she and France's new president, Emmanuel Macron, agreed on
Monday to develop a medium-term roadmap on how to deepen
European Union integration and make the euro zone more resilient
"Germany will only do well in the long-term if Europe does
well and Europe will only do well if there is a strong France,"
Merkel told a joint news conference with Macron, adding their
governments would hold a meeting on key issues in July.
Merkel said that, from Germany's viewpoint, it would be
possible to change EU treaties, adding: "I would be ready to do
this, but first we will work on what we want to reform."
