The treaty, concluded in 1963 by Charles de Gaulle and Konrad Adenauer in the Elysee Palace in Paris, set a new tone of reconciliation between France and Germany, and called for consultations between the two countries to come to a common stance on policies affecting the most important partners in Europe as well as the rest of the region. Since its establishment, the document for improved bilateral relations has been seen by many as the driving force behind European integration. (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)
