Macron admits differences with Merkel over Brexit, trade

AFP  |  Paris 

French President Emmanuel Macron on Thursday admitted differences with German counterpart Angela Merkel on Brexit, trade and energy policy, saying "confrontations" and compromises were part of their relationship.

"On Brexit, we are not completely on the same page. On our ambitions for the climate and in energy, we are not completely on the same page," Macron told a press conference.

He also referred to what he described as the "incoherent" decision to begin EU trade talks with the United States, backed by Merkel, despite US President Donald Trump's climate policies.
