Annalena Baerbock, the foreign minister of Germany’s new left-led coalition government, has pledged that her country will support France in making “a more sovereign Europe” — that is, one with more power over its member-states’ national governments.

The declaration comes as France assumes the European Union’s rotating presidency for the next six months.

“Our French friends can count on our support from the first to the last day to lay the right foundations within the EU: for a sustainable economic recovery, in the fight against the climate crisis, in digitization and for a more sovereign Europe in the world,” Baerbock said, according to AFP

The coalition — led by Chancellor Olaf Scholz — has declared that it will push for a so-called “United States of Europe” during its lifespan.
