German gov't says important to support France in making reforms

BERLIN, May 8 (Reuters) - No time should be lost in supporting France as it seeks to implement economic reforms and strengthen its role in Europe, a spokesman for the German Foreign Ministry said on Monday. A spokeswoman for Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble told the regular government news conference that said Schaeuble would discuss measures to strengthen the eurozone with the new French government once it was formed after Sunday’s election of independent candidate Emmanuel Macron. When asked about the German goverment’s position on the introduction of joint eurobonds, government spokesman Steffen Seibert said Berlin remained opposed to such move.
