The pair confirmed that in order to secure the future integrity of the bloc, they are willing to draw up new treaties to allow for deeper integration and facilitate widespread reform.

In his inaugural address, Macron vowed to restore France's place in Europe and the world. Mr. Macron ran as a business-friendly centrist, pushing liberal economic policies that previous French leaders have regarded with skepticism.

Merkel told Macron "Europe will only do well if there is a strong France, and I am committed to that". The run-up to the meeting had been marked by a row among senior German politicians over how to respond to Macron's calls for closer European Union integration, with some concerned that Berlin would be asked to pay for struggling states that resist reforms. While politicians have previously suggested similar ideas, it was thought that the need to rewrite European treaties would stymie these options. That was a new tone for the chancellor, sounding more positive about the possibility of treaty changes than she had in recent months.

"From the German point of view, it's possible to change the treaty if it makes sense", Merkel added reported the BBC.

Macron said that treaty change was "no longer a French taboo".
