France update

Emmanuel Macron sparks outrage as French leader capitulates to Merkel over space deal | World | News |

Emmanuel Macron is suffering brutal backlash after the French government signed a deal with Angela Merkel on a new Franco-German space project.

France and Germany signed a new space agreement that will see more investment into the Ariane 6 rocket.

The deal is said to “guarantee the financing of the Ariane 6 rocket, cooperation between the two countries on launchers, and also the European preference for satellite launches.”

Critics of the submissive alliance between the two countries also lamented when Emmanuel Macron gave into Ms. Merkel’s demands over the development of the FCAS combat jet this year.
