France’s centrist presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron will meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in March, his team said Saturday.



The exact date has not yet been fixed, they said.


The 39-year-old former economy minister, who has surged from outsider to a frontrunner ahead of elections in April and May, visited Berlin in early January but did not meet Merkel.


This will be the latest in a long line of meetings in the past few months Macron has had with foreign leaders.


On Tuesday, he met with British Prime Minister Theresa May in London.
