Emmanuel Macron calls for ‘Europe of defence’ at show of force on Bastille Day

July 21, 2019   |   Category: Prophecy News   |   Tags: ,

Emmanuel Macron presided over a show of European force at France’s annual Bastille Day military parade on Sunday, calling for a “Europe of defence” alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel and leaders from the continent.

The French president has argued for greater military co-operation in the bloc as the US cannot be relied upon to guarantee security under Donald Trump.

Three British Chinook helicopters and a Eurofighter were among more than 100 aircraft from 10 EU countries that flew over Paris as soldiers, police and firefighters marched down the iconic Champs-Elysées avenue.

German, Spanish, Portuguese and Finnish soldiers also took part.

Theresa May was represented by the Cabinet Office minister David Lidington, her de facto deputy, after she cancelled a plan to attend.
