PARIS (Reuters) - French President Emmanuel Macron will host Germany’s Angela Merkel in France on Feb. 27 for a working meeting to discuss Brexit, U.S. relations as well as the two countries defence partnership, Macron’s office said on Friday.

The talks between the European Union’s two most powerful leaders will come about a month before Britain’s scheduled departure from the bloc and a month after Paris and Berlin signed a new treaty to reinvigorate the EU’s main axis.
