Germany – Conversation between Mme Catherine Colonna and Ms Annalena Baerbock, Minister of Foreign Affairs (22 May 2022)


Mme Catherine Colonna, Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs, spoke on the telephone today to her German counterpart, Ms Annalena Baerbock.

The call symbolizes the centrality and importance of the Franco-German relationship in serving Europe. The two ministers have a shared desire to develop a close, trustful relationship.

At Ms Baerbock’s invitation, Mme Colonna will be visiting Berlin very shortly to prepare for the next important international and European meetings, particularly the European Council of 30 and 31 May, which will focus on European energy resilience, the strengthening of European defence and the European Union’s response to the war in Ukraine, as well as the conference on the Western Balkans, which will be held at the end of June.
