Finnish Prime Minister Juha Sipilä (Centre) has said on the YLE’s Haloo Europe podcast that Finland has allied with France to build a common European defense, and that he had agreed on this with the French President Emmanuel Macron. Mr Macron has started his European tour in Athens, during which he intends to present his vision for reforming Europe. According to Mr Sipilä, the development of a joint European defence is expected to advance in leaps and bounds after the German election at the end of September.
