FRENCH LEADER MACRON TO PAY OFFICIAL VISIT TO COPENHAGEN




Mustafa AY – TDO – 29.08.2018 On Tuesday, French President Emanuel Macron paid official visit to Denmark’s capital Copenhagen for EU Defence Pact that has been in progress. Within 2-day-long visit to Denmark, Macron is expected to convey his Danish counterpart the necessity of formation of self-sufficient EU Defence Force.

Since Denmark avoids participation in EU Defence Pact, Macron moved to Copenhagen to ask his counterpart’s support to promote the initiative. As known from previous days, Macron underlined the fact that EU has to take immediate action in order to constitute its own defence force because European bloc cannot depend on US forces, but on its own.
