Macron berates Israeli security men in tussle at Jerusalem churchJERUSALEM (Reuters) - "Go outside," French President Emmanuel Macron demanded in English in a melee with Israeli security men on Wednesday, demanding they leave a Jerusalem basilica that he visited before a Holocaust memorial conference. The French tricolor has flown over the Church of St. Anne in Jerusalem's walled Old City since it was gifted by the Ottomans to French Emperor Napoleon III in 1856.

Kosovo President Expects New Government to Be Formed Soon(Bloomberg) -- Sign up here to receive the Davos Diary, a special daily newsletter that will run from Jan. 20-24.Kosovo’s president said he hopes a new government will be formed “very soon” as the nation needs to proceed with reforms.“We have one goal: to move as fast as possible toward European integration and to be a member of NATO,” President Hashim Thaci said Tuesday in an interview on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.Thaci on Monday gave Albin Kurti, whose party won October elections, 15 days to create a new government. Coalition talks have dragged on for months as the top two parties, both previously in opposition, wrangle over key posts and future endorsements for next year’s presidential race.Thaci also hailed a U.S.-brokered agreement signed Monday by Serbia and Kosovo that will allow flights to resume between their capitals for the first time since they fought a 1998-1999 war. He said it should be seen as a “crucial step” toward mending the ties, which the EU has set as a condition for both countries to win membership.Kosovo will keep trying to win further recognition among nations and integration in international organizations, he said.(Updates with further integration in last paragraph)\--With assistance from Misha Savic.To contact the reporters on this story: Andrea Dudik in Prague at adudik@bloomberg.net;Jasmina Kuzmanovic in Zagreb at jkuzmanovic@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Andrea Dudik at adudik@bloomberg.net, Andrew LangleyFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
