The relations between France and Germany is embodied in a cooperation called Franco-German Partnership (French: Amitié franco-allemande; German: Deutsch-Französische Freundschaft). This came about after 1945, when a French-German enmity between the two countries ended.

Especially in the context of the European Union, the cooperation between the countries reaches immense coordination and collaboration. Even though France has at times been eurosceptical in outlook, especially under President de Gaulle, Franco-German agreements and cooperations have always been key to furthering the ideals of European integration.

In recent times, France and Germany are among the most enthusiastic proponents of the further integration of the EU. They are sometimes described as the "twin engine" or "core countries" pushing for moves. This agenda is facing relative opposition from those adhering to a Eurosceptic ideology.
