Macron defends his presence in the France-Morocco match

The president of France, Emmanuel Macron, defended his trip to Qatar this Wednesday to attend the 2022 World Cup match between France and Morocco, despite the recently uncovered scandal in which that Gulf country is pointed out as the protagonist of a network of bribing MEPs. “I fully assume it. I was with the French team in Russia four years ago and I am with them in Qatar,” he said in statements to the media upon his arrival at the summit of heads of state and government of the European Union in Brussels. .

The French president, who said he knew that the fact that the organization of the World Cup was entrusted to Qatar generated “debate” and there were even those who proposed not following it for that reason, added that the French “love our national team, we are proud of them and We want him to win.”

Regarding the bribery scandal in the European Parliament, Macron urged letting “Justice do its job” and base it on “identified facts.” “You need to know the facts, understand who is involved and then take appropriate measures. The competent institutions will make decisions based on the facts,” he said.
