Germany's Merkel to work with Italy's populist new govt

The League and 5 Star each need to renegotiate treaties on budgets, migration and a variety of different points with the European Union. Macron wants a future EMF to act as a buffer in any future financial crises in the bloc, which was almost torn apart in a debt crisis in 2009.

More than a year after Macron took office with the stated mission to bolster the European Union and make it more responsive to its citizens, Merkel's counter-offer comes at a time of heightened concern about the future of the bloc due to political turmoil in Italy and Spain and transatlantic tensions.

Merkel's spokesman, Steffen Seibert, declined to say whether Merkel and Draghi, an Italian, discussed the political situation in Italy or euro zone reform proposals during their meeting in Berlin.

The issue is complicated by Germany's determination to retain domestic parliamentary control over its forces.

She also said the EMF should be able to assess the debt sustainability of member states and "the instruments needed to restore this if necessary" - a nod to debt restructuring, which France opposes.

"To do that we have to strengthen investment capability with the help of additional structural policies", she said, adding that the fund would be phased in gradually and then evaluated in terms of its effectiveness. In another nod to Macron, Merkel said she had a "positive view" of his joint European military intervention force.

As reported by Deutsche Welle (DW), Germany's worldwide broadcaster, Conte, a little-known Italian law professor, has mostly kept quiet since being sworn in on June 1, but he announced on Facebook that, along with Merkel, he had also held talks with France's Emmanuel Macron on June 2.
