French President Emmanuel Macron had a telephone conversation today with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping, the French presidency announced.

During the conversation, Macron called for greater reciprocity in balancing the relationship between the European Union and China, especially in terms of "market access".

In this regard, the French president urged Beijing to abide by "its commitments to ratify the International Labor Organization conventions and to combat forced labor."

Beijing wants to reduce fossil fuel use by less than 20% by 2060, according to a government plan setting a target for achieving carbon neutrality, which was released on Sunday.

As for bilateral relations, the French president "insisted on the quality of exchanges in the agri-food sector and on France's expectations for the opening of the Chinese market in general," according to Elize.
