Monday, 24 June 2024, Düsseldorf, NRW, Germany: NRW Premier Hendrik Wüst received the Ambassador of the French Republic to the Federal Republic of Germany, H.E. François Delattre, for talks in the State Chancellery on Monday. The Minister for European Affairs Nathanael Liminski and the French General Consul in NRW, Étienne Sur, also partook in the talks.

Premier Hendrik Wüst: “France and Germany share responsibility for ensuring that Europe is strong. After the European elections, it is even more important than before to consolidate this strength through concrete action. Increasing our own defense capabilities, becoming more competitive, countering threats to democracy within – only a vibrant and strong Europe can maintain stability and peace. Nationalists and populists want to shake it. We must not allow that. The upcoming French National Council elections are of considerable importance not only for France, but for our entire European Union.”

Premier Hendrik Wüst last met French President Emmanuel Macron at the end of May during his state visit to Germany. In Münster, Macron was awarded the Peace of Westphalia Prize. “President Macron is committed like no other to ensuring that our Europe thrives,” said Premier Wüst. “Europe must live. That is what President Macron stands for. He demonstrated this impressively in his speeches in Münster and Dresden. We should take his words to heart more than ever: Europe is not the goal, but the compass.”

In their conversation, Premier Wüst and Ambassador Delattre also discussed bilateral relations, the upcoming Olympic and Paralympic Games in France as well as the anniversary of the regional partnership between North Rhine-Westphalia and the French region of Hauts-de-France.
