France’s President, Emmanuel Macron has called for closer ties between his country and Germany, saying Europe has the obligation not to let the world slip into chaos.

Reports say Macron is in Berlin for the country’s annual day of mourning for victims of war.

In a speech to Germany’s parliament, he said Europe must not become a plaything of great powers.

He also wants Germany’s backing for a European Army, which he said would reduce the bloc’s dependence on the US, and a new tax on internet tech giants.
