King Charles of England’s visit to Paris, France has been postponed due to security concerns.
Opponents of pension reform in Paris, the capital of France, have turned the streets into a place of fire. While protesters have been wreaking havoc in many parts of the country, King Charles of England has postponed his visit to France due to security concerns.
Around a million people continue to protest in France against a bill that would raise the retirement age by two years to 64. After protests turned the streets of Paris into flames, the expected visit of King Charles was postponed after these events.
Clashes between police and demonstrators erupted in the capital, Paris, as unions called for more protests next Tuesday to coincide with a state visit by King Charles III of England to the country.
The demonstrators set fire to the front door of the town hall of Bordeaux. However, it became known about the devastation of demonstrations in the capital, Paris. The boulevard Champs-Elysées, the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower could be seen covered in burnt materials and debris.
KING CARLS DELAYS VISIT
The French presidium said in a statement that the visit of King Charles, which was scheduled to take place in various cities of France on March 26-29, has been postponed due to the intensification of protests in the country. The statement said the decision to postpone was made by the governments of the two countries after a telephone conversation between King Charles and French President Emmanuel Macron.
HE MUST VISIT PARIS AND BORDEAUX
The king was expected to visit Paris, where protests turned violent, and Bordeaux, where demonstrators set fire to the city hall door, as part of an official program. A statement issued in early March from Buckingham Palace announced that King Charles would be visiting France and Germany March 26-31.
As part of the King’s visit to France, he was expected to host programs and meetings at the Élysée Palace, the Musée d’Orsay, the Palace of Versailles and at the Arc de Triomphe.
NO CHANGES ON THE VISIT TO GERMANY
As part of the announced visit to Germany, King Charles is expected to make contacts in Berlin and Hamburg, as well as deliver a speech to the German Parliament. The king’s visits are “the first foreign visits he will make after his accession to the throne.”
NUMBER OF DETAINED INCREASED TO 457
France’s Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin said the number of people detained during anti-pension reform demonstrations across the country rose to 457 yesterday.
