German Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives and the Centre-left Social Democrats (SPD) pledged Friday to work closely with France to strengthen the euro zone, saying they were open to creating an "investment budget" for the currency bloc.She vowed at a summit of EU leaders last month to develop joint positions on Europe with the French president by March.But that will likely depend on whether she can build on the policy document agreed on Friday and forge what would be her third "grand coalition" -- comprising her Christian Democratic Union (CDU), its Bavarian Christian Social Union (CSU) sister party, and the SPD -- over the coming months.
