Taoiseach Leo Varadkar with French Prime Minister Emmanuel Macron during an EU summit in Salzburg, Austria last Summer
This struggle is a daily commitment, because Europe, like peace, can never be taken for granted. I tirelessly pursue it in the name of France to take Europe forward and defend its model. We have shown that what we were told was unattainable, the creation of a European defence capability and the protection of social rights, was in fact possible.
President of France Emmanuel Macron writing in today’s Irish Times.
