Angela Merkel Meeting-Europe

Asked what the expectations of her meeting with the Prime Minister were, and also, was there an expectation that she would be more conducive to business than her predecessor, the PMOS replied that obviously, this would be a chance for the Prime Minister and Angela Merkel to go over the ground. That included the WTO round, budget negotiations, and the general state of affairs in Europe, and all of those matters would probably be part of that discussion. The Prime Minister looked forward to doing business. The PMOS also said it was generally not a good idea to give other political leaders marks out of ten, either when they were in office, or out of office! It was not conducive to diplomatic negotiations or relations.

Asked if there would be discussions of future financing at the EUROMED summit, the PMOS replied it was inevitable that informally, these issues could be discussed, but it was not part of the formal agenda. When several European leaders gathered together, it was quite likely that European future financing would be discussed.
