French President Emmanuel Macron warned Saturday that the West is "weakening", after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo sought to fend off European anxiety about a decline of transatlantic unity.

"There is a weakening of the West," the French leader told the Munich Security Conference.

"There's an American policy that started several years ago and not just under this administration that includes a certain kind of withdrawal, of a rethink of its relationship with Europe."
