( CNN) German Chancellor Angela Merkel is stimulating the most of her remaining time in office.

“We should work on the vision to one day create a true European army, ” she told the chamber, devoting her full backing to one of many eurozone reforms called for by French President Emmanuel Macron.

She also had a dig at the nationalist policies of US President Donald Trump, saying: “The times that we could rely on others without reservation are over. That mean we Europeans have to take our fate into our hands if we want to survive as a community.”
