German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez agreed at a news conference in Berlin on Tuesday that an agreement in Europe is needed “as soon as possible.”
Merkel acknowledged that “the differences in opinions persist” but said that “we have to find a solution” and urged that “time is running out.”
“It is important to invest in the future, in the digital transformation, in climate change,” she added.
Sanchez insisted that “July is the month of the agreement.”
“I know we have a difficult negotiation ahead of us, but union has never being achieved through vetoes, but through dialogue, and that is what we are called to do on the 17th and 18th of July, if we delay the agreement the crisis will worsen,” he said.
