in a suprising move, german chancellor schröder asked french president jaques chirac to represent both german and french interests at the eu summit on friday.
schröder and his foreign minister, legally the only possible participiants from the german government to the eu summit, have to depart early and asked chirac to also represent germany in the closing session of the summit.
heres the newslink in german:
i think that is just amazing and a great move for the european unity.
