German Chancellor Angela Merkel welcomes French President Emmanuel Macron's speech on EU reform, her spokesman said Wednesday, without giving details on how she would go about improving the way the European Union is run.Macron offered a sweeping vision for Europe's future in a speech Tuesday, calling for the EU to cooperate more closely on defense, immigration, tax and social policy, and for the single currency bloc to have its own budget.Merkel's spokesman Steffen Seibert said Berlin shared Macron's view that the EU needs reforms and that his speech contained "a lot of material" for debate on the issue.Macron's proposals for a joint eurozone budget and a common finance minister were at least worth discussing, Lang added.
