Macron said at a press conference after the meeting that the leaders discussed the need to "resolutely combat terrorist propaganda and online hate speech."
He urged Europe to take a "swift and coordinated" response to terrorist attacks, saying that such responses should focus on "the development of common databases, the exchange of information, or the strengthening of criminal policies."

In addition, he also believes that it is necessary to strengthen the control of the EU's external borders, and proposed the establishment of a European Internal Security Council.
