Emmanuel Macron, wielding ‘tools to set agenda,’ demands MONTHS of EU army talks.

EMMANUEL MACRON has demanded that at a summit in March, discussions on the formation of a European Union defense capability begin.

As France assumes the presidency of the European Council, Emmanuel Macron is focused on bringing member states’ military capabilities closer together.

Mr Macron has called for a series of summits to get the wheels in motion to build on his masterplan of an EU army as he wields the “tools to set the agenda,” as he wields the “tools to set the agenda.”

According to Jacob Ross of the German Council of Foreign Relations, who spoke to DW News on Thursday, French President Emmanuel Macron stated in a speech in December that talks for a series of summits to shape the European Union’s future will take place in the first three months of 2022.

The first of these, he said, will be a summit in February on the European Union’s relationship with Africa.

But he went on to say that there will be a “summit on European defense in March,” in which Mr. Ross expects President Macron to start putting his plans for closer military ties across the bloc into action.

With the presidency of the European Council, President Macron and France now “have the tools to set the agenda and bring their priorities to the European stage,” according to Mr Ross.

He also mentioned that, during President Macron’s six-month presidency of the European Council, another summit on the “future European economic mode” will take place in March.

Mr Macron’s demands for an EU army, according to James Shields, a professor of French politics at the University of Warwick, are proof that the French President believes France “can’t go it alone” on the world stage without the help of others.

He explained how the “tectonic plates” of geo-strategic and geopolitical affairs have shifted in recent years, forcing even France, which is “wedded to the idea of international independence,” to consider other defense options.

Mr Macron’s demands for an EU army, according to the French political expert, stem from his dissatisfaction with France’s global role.

He also mentioned where President Macron’s push comes from.
