German Chancellor Angela Merkel stresses that Europe can't fight Islamist terrorism alone.
Chancellor Angela Merkel and her French counterpart marked the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I by unveiling a plaque at Rethondes. Leaders from 67 countries are set to join the weekend's commemorations.
The German chancellor has given an impassioned speech on the merits of international cooperation and multilateralism. She warned against "destructive isolationism" at the inauguration of the Paris Peace Forum.
The office of French President Emmanuel Macron says his comments on the need for an EU army have been misinterpreted by his US counterpart. Donald Trump lashed out at Macron on Friday over the proposal.
Angela Merkel's immediate task is to organize the contest over who will be her successor as leader of the CDU. Whoever it turns out to be could well pull the party away from the political center — wherever that is.
