6 held for allegedly plotting to attack French leader Emmanuel Macron

French Far-Right Overtakes Macron in EU Parliament Election Poll

French President Emmanuel Macron has warned that Europeans can not be protected without a "true, European army", as he marks the centenary of the World War One Armistice.

Francis Kalifat of the CRIF association of French Jewish groups said he was "shocked" by Macron's comments praising a leader who helped deport thousands of Jews to their deaths.

French President Emmanuel Macron continues to push ahead with the idea to reduce dependence on the USA and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and create an European Union defence force.

"He was a great soldier, it's a fact", Macron said, though he stressed that Petain had made "disastrous choices" during World War II.

In an interview with Europe 1 radio published earlier on Tuesday, Mr Macron called for the creation of a "real European army", warning that rising nationalism and populism posed a serious threat to Europe's "fragile" peace. Macron went on to name potential threats to European security; the short list included the likes of Russia, China, and surprisingly, the United States. "However, such an intervention force with a common military-strategic culture must fit into the structure of defence cooperation", she told Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung.

"But there's a massive gap between the European defence that Emmanuel Macron dreams about and the reality of very powerful disagreements between European partners".

Today, Macron also said Europe needed to build a real army to become less reliant on the United States and in the face of a resurgent Russian Federation.
