Scholz and Duda will discuss Ukraine at a meeting with Macron.

Scholz and Duda will discuss Ukraine at a meeting with Macron.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Polish President Andrzej Duda are expected to visit Paris on Monday next week and hold talks with French President Emmanuel Macron.

It is expected that the main topics of the meeting of the leaders of the three countries at dinner will be the discussion of Ukraine’s accession to NATO and security guarantees from Kyiv’s allies ahead of the alliance’s summit in July. In addition to Ukraine, Macron, Scholz and Duda can discuss European issues, including defense.


As French and German media noted earlier, relations between France and Germany are at their lowest point. The most controversial topics concern the marginal price of gas, the unwillingness of the German Chancellor to support Macron’s idea of ​​​​European sovereignty and common defense, as well as the negotiations of the French leader behind the back of his German colleague on the construction of a gas pipeline between Barcelona and Carcassonne, also led to the conflict. Recently, however, Paris and Berlin have become more in contact, and Macron intends to visit Germany in early July.
