PARIS (Reuters) – French President Emmanuel Macron will meet German Chancellor Angela Merkel in the German town of Meseberg on June 29 to discuss a European economic recovery plan, Macron’s office said on Wednesday.

They will also discuss the COVID-19 crisis, environmental issues and other international affairs, added Macron’s office.

Macron met Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte earlier this week, and a French presidential official said the meeting had enabled them to move forward on resolving differences over the European Union budget and recovery fund.
