ATHENS (Reuters) – French President Emmanuel Macron on Thursday backed Germany’s proposal for a European Monetary Fund (EMF) but stressed the ultimate goal should remain a euro zone budget. “We should head towards a European Monetary Fund but this should in no way be mixed up with a (euro zone) budget,” Macron said during a visit to Athens. Macron praised Greece’s austerity reforms and reiterated his call for an easing of the Greek debt burden.
