French President Emmanuel Macron to Visit Israel in 2018

Asked by Le Point magazine in an interview if he was trying to be the new "cool" kid on the global stage, Macron replied: "The global stage is not really a "cool" scene, you know". On Ukraine, we have major differences with Vladimir Putin.

The French government on Thursday unveiled its much awaited plan to reform the country's protective and rigid labor law, aiming to give businesses more flexibility in hiring employees.

Five decrees have been issued, containing what ministers said were "concrete and major measures" to overhaul and simplify the weighty Code du Travail, which covers every aspect of working life in France.

But union leaders, speaking to reporters after the meeting with the government, had mixed reactions, expressing satisfaction with some points and dismay at others, like the permission for bosses to negotiate directly with staff members in companies with fewer than 20 workers. The head of the third biggest union in France (FO), Jean-Claude Mailly, told Les Echoes daily that he was satisfied with the consultation process and would not join strike action.

In an interview published on Thursday, Macron lamented that France's unemployment rate of around 9.5% was nearly double that of its major European rivals. The changes, he said, would end the constricting of France "squeezed by rules and rights ... which believes itself to be a country of liberty".

Macron has previously referred to boycotts of Israel as "profoundly antisemitic", and has said anti-Zionism "leads directly to antisemitism".
