Germany's Angela Merkel called for a spirit of compromise on reforming the eurozone at a meeting Thursday with French President Emmanuel Macron, who pressed for solidarity among members of the currency union.Stressing the need for compromise, Merkel said: "We each bring some different facets but I think the sum of our proposals will make for a good result in the end".However, their meeting took place against a backdrop of grumbling by lawmakers from Merkel's conservative bloc, wary that Macron's call for more solidarity could see German taxpayers' money used to fund profligate member states.On a European asylum system, Merkel said the two leaders agreed on many points, and concurred that offering incentives was better than talking about penalties.Merkel said she was very optimistic about completing a banking union.
