French President Emmanuel Macron attends a joint statement with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen (not seen) at the Elysee Palace in Paris, France, June 23, 2021. The case has turned into a test of where France draws the line between freedom of expression and being offensive. Jean Ennochi, a lawyer for Macron, said the legal complaint was filed for Macron in a personal capacity "because of the offensive nature of the comparison of the President of the Republic with Adolf Hitler". A representative of Macron's party said it had filed a separate complaint alleging insult and incitement of hatred. That the president would file a complaint against a French citizen," Flori said.

"The prime minister set out that the way the Protocol was currently operating was unsustainable," a Downing Street spokesman said after Johnson spoke to European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen.

LONDON, July 22 (Reuters) - Prime Minister Boris Johnson urged European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen on Thursday to consider seriously Britain's proposals to change what he called the "unsustainable" way a Brexit deal is governing trade with Northern Ireland. Britain proposed on Wednesday to renegotiate parts of the Northern Ireland protocol that govern the movement of goods such as chilled meats, and to dispense with EU oversight of the accord. Johnson spoke to van der Leyen on Thursday. Johnson urged the EU to "look at the proposals seriously and work with the UK on them" saying this would put the UK-EU relationship on a better footing. It essentially requires checks on goods between the British mainland and Northern Ireland, which remains part of the EU customs area.

The federal government plans to provide 200 million euros ($236 million) in emergency aid to repair buildings, damaged local infrastructure and to help people in crisis situations, the draft document, due to go to cabinet on Wednesday, showed. If the 16 federal states also contribute 200 million, a total of 400 million euros will be available in immediate aid, it said. The government will apply to the EU for help from a fund set up to deal with natural disasters across the bloc, it said. "The federal government will do everything needed to restore the federally owned infrastructure as quickly as possible," it said in the draft document. Experts say the floods that hit northwestern Europe last week should act as a warning that long-term climate change prevention is needed.

German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier is due to visit the hard-hit town of Erftstadt in North Rhine-Westphalia on Saturday, together with regional head Armin Laschet.

Some 133 people have died in the flooding in western Germany, in the country's worst natural disaster in more than half a century. "Water levels have been stabilising since last night, one can say the situation is stable," Wassenberg mayor Marcel Maurer said. In Belgium, the death toll rose to 24, according to the national crisis centre, which is coordinating the rescue effort. "Unfortunately, we have to assume that this figure will continue to rise in the coming hours and days," the centre said in a statement. In the southern Belgian provinces of Luxembourg and Namur, authorities rushed to supply drinking water to households without a clean supply.

The European Commission has started legal action against Hungary after the country passed a law that bans sharing content in schools that seemingly endorses gay and transgender issues, the commission announced Thursday. Since Hungary’s law, which appears to conflate LGBTQ issues with pedophilia, passed in the country’s Parliament on June 15, international pressure on the European Union to take action has mounted. “The European Parliament and the European Commission want that we let LGBTQ activists and organizations into the kindergartens and schools. Hungary and Poland, both members of the European Union, have two months to respond to the arguments put forward by the commission. If they fail to do so, they could be referred to the European Union’s Court of Justice, the commission warned.

The European Union detailed on Wednesday how it will reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the coming years, with the plan potentially revolutionizing many sectors from air travel to shipping. The 27-member bloc has vowed to become carbon neutral by 2050 and to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030 from 1990 levels. In a wide-ranging proposal, the European Commission, the executive arm of the EU, outlined how that can be achieved. We want to leave the next generation a healthy planet as well as good jobs and growth that does not hurt our nature," European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said in a statement as the blueprint was released. Watch the video above to learn more about the EU's 'Fit for 55' plan.

REUTERS/Francois LenoirBUDAPEST, July 16 (Reuters) - Hungary's Prime Minister on Friday accused the European Commission of "legalised hooliganism" for an infringement action against measures by his government that the EU executive said discriminated against LGBT people. Stepping up a war of words with Brussels, Orban told state radio on Friday: "This (EU infringement action) is legalised hooliganism... The infringement action has also targeted Poland after some municipalities there declared themselves "LGBT-ideology free zones". Orban on Friday also predicted another clash over EU recovery funds, which have been withheld by Brussels but which he said Hungary would eventually get.

Flags of the Union Jack and European Union are seen ahead of the meeting of European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, in Brussels, Belgium December 9, 2020. Britain's membership of the accord, known as the Lugano Convention, ended in December last year when it fully left the EU, and bloc officials said an application to rejoin had been rejected. Lugano determines which countries' civil and commercial courts may hear cross-border disputes between the 27 European Union states, Iceland, Norway and Switzerland. A working group of EU member states on UK issues shared the commission's stance and no further steps are planned, it said. An alternative convention, the Hague Judgments Convention from 2019, also governs cross-border recognition of civil and commercial judgments, but it has yet to enter into force.

Climate change is blamed for exacerbating the flooding.

Environmental activists and politicians were quick to draw parallels between the flooding and the effects of climate change. Ursula von der Leyen, the president of the European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union, said on Friday that the flooding was a clear indication of climate change. “It is the intensity and the length of the events that science tells us this is a clear indication of climate change,” Ms. von der Leyen said. While linking climate change to a single flood event requires extensive scientific analysis, climate change, which is already causing heavier rainfall in many storms, is an increasingly important part of the mix. Warmer atmosphere holds, and releases, more water, whether in the form of rain or heavy winter snowpack.

At least 50 people are dead and more than 1,000 others are unaccounted for after floods in Germany caused rivers to burst their banks, swept away cars and caused homes to collapse Thursday, authorities said. The government in the district of Ahrweiler, which is in the western state of Rhineland-Palatinate, said as many as 1,300 people are assumed to be missing. Storms caused deadly flooding in Belgium, where media reported eight deaths. In Germany, torrential rain and storms stranded people on rooftops, and authorities used inflatable boats and helicopters to identify and rescue residents. Biden also expressed his condolences and the condolences of the American people to those affected by the flooding in Germany and other countries.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen presents the EU's new climate policy proposals as EU Commissioner Paolo Gentiloni sits next to her, in Brussels, Belgium, July 14, 2021. read moreA proposed carbon border levy would seek to impose on trading partners a carbon price reflecting the level set by the EU's carbon emissions market, the largest of its kind in the world. Paolo Gentiloni, the European Commissioner for economic matters, said a 10-year transition from 2026 for the carbon levy on goods such as steel, fertiliser and cement, would give others time to adapt. Moscow estimates $7.6 billion of its goods could be subject to the EU levy. The levy could trigger a World Trade Organization challenge, although the EU executive says it is legally sound.

"Yellen's task now is to get Congress on board with the tax deal. The U.S. decision to commit to the global minimum tax was absolutely essential to reviving the OECD talks," Christie said. Yellen said because countries had agreed to refrain from new digital taxes, it was better for the EU to wait until the parameters of the tax deal before recrafting the plans. Yellen is pushing for a higher global corporate minimum tax rate than 15% and wants Congress to double the U.S. overseas minimum to 21%. Yellen said that she believed EU holdouts to the tax deal Ireland, Estonia and Hungary want "to find a way to get to yes."

breaking How the European Union’s plan to cut emissions will affect businesses. The European Union’s network of charging stations is concentrated in Germany, France and the Netherlands. The European Union’s plan to cut its greenhouse gas emissions by more than half by the end of the decade will touch almost every industry, with profound consequences for the economy. Shipping companies would not be able to dock at European ports unless they shift to cleaner fuels. He will also note that longer-run inflation expectations remain under control — which matters because inflation outlooks help to shape the future path for prices.

The commission wants to phase out free emission allowances for the aviation industry, and to include shipping for the first time. Environmental taxesThe commission wants to introduce a carbon border adjustment mechanism, which can be described as an environmental tax. It's designed to stop goods made elsewhere, with less stringent emissions rules, then being imported into the EU. It would force EU businesses to pay a carbon adjustment for importing goods from outside the bloc. The price tag would be the same as EU businesses would have paid if the goods had been produced under the EU's carbon pricing rules.
