Macron urges Europe to engage with Turkey and Russia on security

Макрон предложил Евросоюзу модернизировать отношения с Россией

Mr Macron said the European Union had for too long relied on United States protection and that while the Nato military alliance remained the world's top security organisation, the EU had to focus on collective defence and bolster its own security capacities.

Macron is a strong advocate for a Europe that is able to defend its strategic interests and financial independence and respond to new global economic and defence situation brought on by Donald Trump's presidency in the United States.

Mr Macron, however, stressed that his proposal was not a thinly veiled attempt to undermine the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation agreement, which "remains an important and strategic alliance", but an attempt to persuade European Union states to take part as much as possible in European Union defence cooperation outside North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

If enacted, Macron's proposal would reduce Europe's dependence on the United States for defense and could compete with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation for resources and political support.

Khalil Mack reportedly dealt to the Bears
At 8:15 AM ET/7:15 AM CT, Rapoport hinted that the Bears were an "undercover team" in the Mack sweepstakes. Part of the Mack trade will now include paying the All-Pro pass rusher, which is now Chicago's next task.

However, he stressed that it's not about to forget the last few years that it would be wrong, however, to cooperate more closely.

At a press conference after a visit to Helsinki, Macron pointe the finger at "those who say all problems come from Europe".

The EU's relations with Russian Federation needed to be "brought up to date", he added. "The stability of the entire region is in our interest", - said the President of France. This reform would allow the European Union to have "a sort of reinforced article 5, " indicated the president, referring to NATO's disposition which stipulates that an "armed attack" against one of the member States is "considered to be an attack against all parties, " thus triggering assistance relief to the State involved.
