Emmanuel Macron's visit to Berlin on Monday, a day after his inauguration as French president, is aimed at stressing the importance of France's relationship with Germany to re-launch the European project, an aide to Macron said, confirming the visit.

"We want to work together on a few priorities: security, economy, investment and social protection," the aide told Reuters on Friday.

Like outgoing Socialist President Francois Hollande in 2012, Macron's Monday meeting with Merkel will be his first overseas port of call since winning the May 7 election.
