Emmanuel Macron will host other major European leaders this month for talks on migration, the economy and defense —part of a broader diplomatic offensive by the French president.

His popularity waning at home, Macron will hold talks with Germany's Angela Merkel, Spain's Mariano Rajoy and Italy's Paolo Gentiloni on Aug 28, a French official said on Tuesday, Reuters reported.

Sources in the three other countries confirmed the meeting. Macron is also due to meet Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte on August 31.

He will also visit Austria, Romania and Bulgaria from August 23-25, when he will press for better protection for French workers from what they see as unfair labor competition from the EU's poorer states.
