France, Germany ‘to find compromise’ for June summit on proposal to reform eurozone

Germany and France on Saturday pledged to deliver a joint proposal to reform the eurozone in time for a leaders summit in June, despite their big differences on the future of the bloc, AFP reported. “We strongly believe that we should be able to find a compromise between France and Germany for the next council of June,” French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said at a joint press conference with his German counterpart, Olaf Scholz in Sofia. “It is absolutely important that France and Germany agree on questions,” said Scholz. He confirmed the joint plan for reforms despite widespread talk that divisions between the EU powerhouses were too great. EU leaders have pledged to table a set of reforms that France says are necessary to reboot Europe after the setbacks of Brexit.
