Babiš to meet with Macron in Paris

Shortly after being acquitted in the Stork's Nest case, the former prime minister and presidential candidate Andrej Babiš announced at a press briefing that he will be flying to Paris on Tuesday to meet with French President Emmanuel Macron. The meeting will last half an hour and will be held at the Elysee Palace. Mr Babiš said that he intends to talk to him about Europe and the war in Ukraine.

Both Mr Babiš's ANO party and Emmanuel Macron's Renaissance party are part of the Renew Europe faction in the European Parliament.

Mr Babiš's trip to France will be taking place three days before the first round of the Czech presidential elections.
