22 January 2019: Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron sign a new treaty on Franco-German friendship in Aachen to amend the Élysée Treaty of 1963 which played a crucial role in the historic reconciliation between France and Germany after the Second World War.
Ambassador Küntzle: „France and Germany jointly declare their willingness to face the challenges of the 21st century“
To celebrate the Treaty of Aachen, the Permanent Representatives of France and Germany in Vienna jointly hosted a reception, welcoming representatives from other Permanent Missions and the international organizations based in Vienna.
