Danish PM meets French President in historic Paris summit

Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen (S) has arrived in Paris today, where she is set to meet with the President of France, Emmanuel Macron, at the historic Élysée Palace. This summit marks an important moment in Danish-French diplomacy, where the two leaders will discuss a range of critical issues, including the continued support for Ukraine. During her visit, Frederiksen and Macron will focus on the current situation in Ukraine, where Denmark has expressed unwavering support for the country’s fight for freedom. “Support for Ukraine comes before anything else, and it is a prominent topic in all discussions on the international stage,” Frederiksen said before the meeting. She emphasized the importance of continuing to provide military aid to Ukraine without hesitation.

In addition to Ukraine, the discussions will also cover the EU’s strategic agenda, with a particular focus on security and defense, as well as European competitiveness and green transition. Frederiksen pointed out that the war in Ukraine has had significant implications for all of Europe and has challenged the international order. “We cannot take peace and freedom for granted on our continent. It requires action,” she said. This meeting is the second between Frederiksen and Macron, with the first taking place in November 2019. Their discussions today are likely to shape future initiatives and strengthen cooperation between Denmark and France in several key areas. Frederiksen looks forward to the talks and to further strengthening the Danish-French relations. “We must invest in our defense, strengthen our competitiveness to ensure Europe’s global influence, and stand together with our close allies like France. The future of Europe is at stake,” she concluded.
