Bundeskanzler Olaf Scholz und Spaniens Premierminister Pedro Sanchez beim deutsch-spanischen Gipfel in A Coruna, Spanien © Reuters/Moncloa Palace Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Spain Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez at the German -Spanish summit in A Coruna (Reuters) - Germany and Spain want to drastically expand their cooperation. In the 25th government consultations in A Coruna, Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez emphasized the proximity of both countries on Wednesday. In an action plan, both governments decided on close cooperation in energy and security issues. Both pushed France President Emmanuel Macron to finally give up resistance to the construction of the so-called Midcat gas pipeline from the Iberian Peninsula to Central Europe. During his visit, Scholz was accompanied by Vice Chancellor Robert Habeck, Minister of Finance Christian Lindner, Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock and Minister of Defense Christine Lambrecht.

George Clooney reveals the 'mistake' of teaching his twins Italian

  George Clooney reveals the 'mistake' of teaching his twins Italian George Clooney revealed one of the biggest mistakes he made with his wife Amal, when it comes to their five-year-old twins Alexander and Ella: teaching them Italian. The 61-year-old actor was joined by his 44-year-old wife on CBS Mornings on Wednesday, to promote their new awards show, the Clooney Foundation for Justice's inaugural Albie Awards.Host Gayle King asked what 'delights' them at that age, when the actor revealed they didn't realize what a mistake teaching them Italian would be.

The demonstrative proximity of both governments is also relevant against the background of the outcome of the Italian parliamentary elections. While there was a close agreement in Berlin with the previous Prime Minister Mario Draghi, this is no longer to be expected with the right-wing election winner Giorgia Meloni. Scholz and Sanchez, on the other hand, are both Social Democrats. The Chancellor praised Spain as a reliable NATO and EU allies. The bilateral consultations took place for the first time since 2013.

Both heads of government also tried to cover the differences against rising energy prices for national aid. With a view to the Federal Government's 200-billion euro aid package, Sanchez urged the Federal Government to capture energy prices that the EU internal market had to be preserved. However, Scholz emphasized that Germany will only follow other EU countries with national aid programs and the 200 billion euros are planned by 2024. He also emphasized with a view to Spain: "Our relationships are exceptionally dense and sustainable." It is an important concern of both governments that citizens and companies move affordable energy.

demonstratively asked both governments to give up resistance to the construction of the gas pipeline from the Iberian Peninsula to the north. "We will both stand up for higher connecting capacities from the Iberian Peninsula to increase their contribution to secure care entirely in Europe," the explanation said. Scholz, who received Macron in the Chancellery on October 3, was optimistic that he would give up his resistance. Both governments demand that the EU Commission are involved in the talks because it is a European project. Brussels also supports the pipeline building.

In the explanation there is also a commitment to the armaments cooperation and a arms export policy coordinated with France. The future projects are named, among other things, the future aircraft system FCAS, the Eurofighter or the A400M transport aircraft. A possible cooperation on an air defense screen that the Spanish side had brought into play is not mentioned. Scholz said that this didn't matter.

In addition, both states want to strengthen their coordination in migration, in politics towards the western Balkans, compliance with the rule of law in the EU, but also in foreign policy in Latin America and North Africa. In the future - similar to France - diplomats will be exchanged and trained.

differences are available when changing the EU fiscal rules. In an interview with the "El Pais" newspaper, Scholz fended off Spanish wishes for the extensive loosening of the EU fiscal rules. "My impression is that the previous rules have proven themselves, precisely because they have shown a high level of flexibility in times of crisis," he said. In summer, the federal government presented its ideas of a limited further development of European debt rules.
