French President Emmanuel Macron said on Thursday Europe needs to wake up to the fact that it is not sufficiently armed in the face of global threats such as Russia's war in Ukraine and that it needs to change scale on defense.

Macron said Europe needed to create a European military academy to train European personnel, beef up its cybersecurity capacities and favour a home-grown European military industry. It should also boost military ties with Britain.
