France, Austria leaders note close views on some EU issues
Kurz was in Paris on Friday on his first bilateral visit abroad since taking office in December. He says “we have a pro-European government that wants to play an active and constructive role to build a better Europe.”
Kurz and Macron both insisted on the need for a greater and fairer taxation of internet giants making big profits in Europe.
Kurz, a conservative who leads a coalition with the far-right euroskeptic Freedom Party, has taken a hard line against migration.
Macron, a centrist with a pro-European agenda, says the EU is aiming to better respond to the challenges prompted by tens of thousands of migrants coming to Europe.
