French President Emmanuel Macron vowed to lead the rebuilding of the European Union and called for deeper euro zone integration, on his visit to Athens, Thursday.
Macron was received by Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras before the leaders held a press conference.
At the press conference, Macron reportedly supported pushing for the formation of a euro zone with its own finance minister and... Еще parliament, as well as a euro budget to counter economic shocks in euro zone member states.
Macron supported Berlin's call for the creation of a European Monetary Fund (EMF); however, emphasising that it «should in no way be mixed up with a (euro zone) budget» and that the ultimate objective of greater EU integration ought to remain a euro zone budget.
In turn, Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos and Tsipras expressed support for the French president's call for a closer euro zone.
