The Overseas Press Club of America (OPC) and the American Library in Paris are closing out a big news year with a panel of journalists. With Germany and France both in political churn, one issue hangs over the EU: Will its unquestioned alliance with the U.S. survive? Each is cutting its own path on everything from nuclear subs, Big Tech, climate, and China. Can this marriage be saved?

Ulysse Gosset, foreign affairs correspondent for BFM-TV.
Michaela Wiegel, correspondent for Frankfurter Algemeine Zeitung.
