BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany’s Angela Merkel will head to France on Friday, the first foreign trip of her fourth term as chancellor, to discuss bilateral, European and international topics with French President Emmanuel Macron, a German government spokesman said.
Earlier on Wednesday, German lawmakers re-elected Merkel as chancellor of Europe’s biggest economy, almost six months after a federal election. Macron is keen to push ahead with plans for euro zone reforms.
