Sebastian Schäffer for Alghad TV

Sebastian Schäffer participated in a talk on Alghad TV about the Franco-German relations and the current security situation in the EU. He stated that despite many differences, both countries are close allies which was reiterated in the context of the 60th anniversary of the Elysee Treaty. Their relation is also reflected in different positions towards the war in Ukraine and diverging understanding of showing support and solidarity. Hoewever, there are bigger dissonances within the EU member states, especially in Central and Eastern Europe, than between Paris and Berlin.
