    The warning comes after NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg cautioned Moscow against any aggression President Emmanuel Macron told Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on Monday that France is ready to defend the territorial integrity of Ukraine.

In a telephone conversation lasting for one hour and 45 minutes Macron expressed "our deep concern and our willingness to defend the territorial integrity of Ukraine," the French president's office said. Putin responded by saying that negotiations...

    A newly revealed text message from French President Emmanuel Macron indicated he knew a multibillion-dollar submarine deal with Australia was on the rocks days before the Land Down Under announced a nuclear sub pact with the US and the UK. That message seemed to call into question the Paris government’s assertions that it had been blindsided by the new agreement.A report by the Australian Financial Review also suggests that Macron played up the rift between the US and its oldest ally to extract a groveling statement of contrition from the American president at last week’s G20 summit in Rome.

    Emmanuel Macron tonight warned that France will retaliate on Tuesday unless Britain backs down in the fishing row - after Boris Johnson denied they had done a deal to resolve the bitter dispute. The French president insisted that unless the UK shifted reprisals will happen within days, saying 'the ball is in Britain's court'. The combative stance came after at a press conference at the end of the G20 summit in Rome - after Mr Johnson told his own briefing for journalists that the UK 'position is unchanged'. Boris Johnson said he was 'puzzled' by a letter from French prime...

  • French Senate (overwhelmingly) rejects mandatory Vaccination… Vote was 262 to 64…

    10/15/2021 9:03:43 PM PDT · by SeekAndFind · 10 replies
    SOURCE A small but significant victory was achieved Wednesday when the French Senate voted against a socialist senator’s proposal to make the COVID experimental vaccine mandatory for all citizens living in France. Non-compliance would trigger a fine of 135 euro (about $150 USD), and 1,500 euro for re-offenders. The rejection of the draft law presented by Senator Patrick Kanner together with several dozen other socialist members of France’s upper chamber did not come as a complete surprise. One week earlier, the Senate’s social affairs commission had refused to adopt the proposition. But Wednesday’s public vote, with 80 percent against making...
