The main topics of conversation between the leaders of the two European countries were:

In addition, the politicians discussed the next meeting of the Council of Ministers of Germany and France.

"Thank you very much for the invitation, dear Emmanuel Macron," Scholz wrote in French on Twitter.

"Whether it's the G7 meeting in Elmau, or the NATO summit, or Paris, it's good that we continue to exchange views on many important topics of our time," he added.

This meeting between Macron and Scholz in Paris is the second official event of this kind in the French capital since Olaf Scholz took office as Chancellor of Germany in December 2021.

Earlier, the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Dmytro Kuleba, said that it was Macron who helped convince Scholz of the need to grant Ukraine the status of a candidate for EU membership.
