Macron Admits 'Fruitful Confrontations' with Merkel

French President Emmanuel Macron acknowledged on Wednesday having policy differences with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, but described them as "fruitful confrontations" that result in compromises that allow the two nations to move forward together.

"I don't want to believe in sterile confrontations or relations. I believe in fruitful confrontations, which means you propose something, you see how your partner responds, and together you try to find a compromise," Macron said at a press conference in Paris.
