Macron calls for ‘European renaissance’ in open letter


President Emmanuel Macron has written an open letter entitled “A European renaissance”, in which he has called for a “more united Europe” over the issues of protection, freedom, and progress.

The open letter is to be published by several media outlets in France, and is also online on the official Elysée website (in French) and in English (here).

President Macron’s official Twitter account has also tweeted the letter translated in most major European languages.

The letter calls for a “stronger, more united continent”, which would offer “more protection, more freedom, and more progress”, and said that “since the Second World War, Europe has never been so necessary”.
