Franco-German Treaty of Aachen

18/02/2019

The treaty recently signed by France and Germany represents a new step in bilateral relations, but it should not convey the image of a duumvirate: the agreement represents an insufficient meeting point to develop the European project.

For the FAES Analysis Group, the author of this paper, France aspires to maintain its autonomous capacity of action, while the German priority is to maintain the status quo and the cohesion of the Union, and to preserve Europe's role in NATO.
