The idea was welcomed by German Chancellor Olaf Scholes, who called it a “very interesting piece of advice” and said he was “very happy” to talk to the French leader about it.

However, Macron, who was in Berlin, met with Scholes and rejected any hope of quick access, suggesting that it would be more effective to form a group of countries wider than those in the EU.
To that end, Macron called for the creation of a “European political community” in which the United Kingdom could join.
“Britain has decided to leave the European Union, but it can gain a place in this political community,” he said.
Macron said he thinks of countries that have already begun access and are nearing completion, “should continue until the end of this path.”
