Recently, one had the feeling that the two partners had grown very far apart. But then a visit offensive started this week. The benefit is primarily symbolic – but that’s exactly what it needed now.
So this Friday the time has really come: The French Prime Minister meets Chancellor Scholz. Actually, Élisabeth Borne should have traveled to Berlin in September, but the visit was canceled because the chancellor had Corona. Scholz seemed too ill even for a circuit call with the Prime Minister – which was irritating in France. Because on the same day, the Chancellor was fit enough to announce his 200 billion double boom package via video conference.
