BRUSSELS - Merkel: Recovery Fund deal a good omen


German Chancellor Angela Merkel feels relieved after the agreement reached on the EU recovery package and the long-term budget after long days of negotiations.

"I am just relieved. In February we did not succeed, but now we have succeeded. "This is a good signal," she told a news conference.

"Extraordinary events like this pandemic that has affected us all also require extraordinary methods. "It also took an extraordinary amount of time."

At the same press conference, the President of France, Emmanuel Macron, stressed that "he was happy to have pursued a policy of solidarity together with his German counterpart."

"The conclusions are truly historic"
