Franco-German rapprochement under Charles de Gaulle and Konrad Adenauer (1958–1962)

Since their historic meeting on 14 September 1958 at Colombey-les-deux-Églises, General de Gaulle, President of the French Republic, and Konrad Adenauer, Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG), have worked tirelessly for Franco-German rapprochement. The official visits of Adenauer to Paris and de Gaulle to Bonn in 1962 show the successful outcome of this reconciliation.
