The alliance between France and Germany is under strain as weeks of disagreements over fighter jets and energy plans led to divergent policies on key areas of European cooperation. The German Chancellor and the French President were all smiles last week in a meeting in Paris to mend ties. But will attempts to decrease tensions succeed at a time when unity is vital for the bloc? Roundtable is a discussion program with an edge. Broadcast out of London and presented by David Foster, it's about bringing people to the table, listening to every opinion, and analysing every point of view. From fierce debate to reflective thinking, Roundtable discussions offer a different perspective on the issues that matter to you. Watch it every weekday at 15:30 GMT on TRT World.
