French President Emmanuel Macron spoke out against any enlargement of the European Union on Tuesday.

 Speaking at a session of the European Parliament, Macron said the EU had to be reformed before new members are brought in. "I will only support an enlargement when there is first a deepening and a reform of our Europe," he said.

"I don't want a Balkans that turns toward Turkey or Russia, but I don't want a Europe that, functioning with difficulty at 28 and tomorrow as 27, would decide that we can continue to gallop off, to be tomorrow 30 or 32, with the same rules," the French President said.

So, why don't you finally start doing something about it instead of talking and talking and talking...? Russia and others don't talk much, they actually do stuff!

Sounds to me like he is not "opposed to enlargement" and "against any enlargement," but is instead seeking an EU reform before new members are admitted?
