Europe is too reliant on importing energy, French President Emmanuel Macron said on Friday, as energy prices have steadily climbed in recent weeks.

Macron was speaking at a news conference after a summit with European Union's leaders in Brussels.

French Prime Minister Jean Castex on Thursday announced that lower-income households would receive 100 euros from the government to help mitigate the impact of rising energy prices, particularly those at the petrol pump.
