The meeting will take place over dinner on January 30.

It was originally scheduled for two weeks ago, but had to be cancelled after the terrorist attacks in Paris. Merkel and Hollande took part in a mass solidarity march in Paris instead.

Merkel spokeswoman Christiane Wirtz said Friday there would be a photo opportunity but no news conference at the event.

European Union policy is on Merkel’s agenda all week, with EU President Donald Tusk flying to Berlin to meet her on Wednesday evening.

Jose Manuel Barroso, the retired European Commission president and now an elder statesmen, is booked for dinner with her Monday evening in Berlin.
