The leaders of the Weimar Group last met, as a group, five years ago.</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en-gb"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Germany, Poland and France revive Weimar group to bolster EU confidence <a href="https://t.co/luU5GwygG9">https://t.co/luU5GwygG9</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/NLU?src=hash">#NLU</a></p>— News Service (@RealTimeHack) <a href="https://twitter.com/RealTimeHack/status/769956122543423488">28 August 2016</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
