• European Council. Message from the Dutch Mark Rutte to Pedro Sánchez: "Without reforms there will be no aid"

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has acknowledged that the agreement on the distribution of the new European reconstruction fund is still in the air and that "differences persist". Before her dinner with the Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez, the chancellor has assured, however, that "time is pressing" but Germany will put "commitments on the table."

German Chancellor Angela Merkel warned today before the President of the Spanish Government, Pedro Sánchez, that "notable differences" persist between EU partners regarding the recovery fund after the pandemic, but also "coincidence" in the need to overcome the damage caused by it.

"We are aware of the need to act quickly," said the German leader, for whom this is the priority objective of the European Council, which will begin next Friday and will recover the face-to-face format, after months of virtual conferences.

Merkel herself admitted, however, that such an agreement may not be reached at that meeting , but an appointment should be made later.

The German chancellor, whose country holds the current EU Presidency, thus continued with Sánchez her round of contacts with leaders of the European Union (EU), after receiving last Friday her Dutch counterpart, Mark Rutte , and yesterday the Italian, Giusseppe Conte, reports Efe.

Rutte, along with Denmark, Austria and Sweden, represent the toughest position in negotiating the post-pandemic rescue fund. The proposal of the European Commission (EC) contemplates a volume of 750,000 million euros, between aid for lost funds and credits, the distribution of which is yet to be defined.
