Emmanuel Macron's remarks on foreign policy with relations concerning the United Kingdom, Algeria, China, Mali, Europe, for the French presidential election of the year 2022.
Foreign politic :
We will take targeted retaliatory measures against the United Kingdom if English fishermen continue their conflict with French fishermen and do not respect the agreement signed with Europe. There is an energy export agreement, we can regulate the flow. The British need us to sell their products, including fisheries, for their energy, for their financial services, for their research centers. If the British do not respect their part, we can act on all these points.
When you join the European club, you sign a contract called the treaty which is signed by referendum in some countries. When we say that our own rule that we define when we want as we want is worth more than what we have signed with the other European countries, then there is no longer a contract, there is no longer any participation . This is very serious, because it is the risk of the country leaving the European Union. We should not wish for the exit of a country, even if it does not respect the fundamental values of the European Union, such as the independence of the judiciary, the rights of women, the rights of minorities, independence. of Justice. Sanctions must be taken against these countries, not giving them financial funds, for example, for their recovery plan. We must respect the common pact, the common rules of rights and freedom in Europe. The European court of human rights must not be abolished. When we say that we do not respect the rule of law of the European Union, or the European court of human rights, if we do that we are killing Europe. When you're in the European club, you have to respect the rules. We can say that we do not like certain rules, we can change them.
There are difficulties with Algeria. We accept our decision on the limitation of visas, it is essential that we respect our rules on immigration matters. It is important that we move towards appeasement. Algeria is a country that we respect. There are tensions that must be relieved, we must look forward and into the future.
China's forays into the skies over Taiwan is a major topic. China is clearly testing a certain number of resistance, of Western capacity for action. We are aware of this. We defend peace in the region.
We must adapt our presence in Operation Barkhane to fight terrorism, to train local armies, defend the state, defend the democratic presence. We have obtained a strengthening of the American presence there.
Calling into question European law is an old French disease. It's astonishing to see that every time there is a problem in France, we think it is Europe's fault. The texts signed with Europe were done in a sovereign way. The dialogue of judges at European level has built our justice a long time ago. The policy of the European Union was built with this dialogue. The fundamental tools for defending human rights are made up of texts such as the European Convention on Human Rights. We must defend this French and European humanism which distinguishes us and makes us. We cannot allow mistrust to settle in a democracy.
NATO is brain dead.
