French President Emmanuel Macron's approval ratings were hit by a fresh decline in April as his package of reforms to transform the country fell short to win public support, a survey showed on Wednesday.

Speaking in the European Parliament in Strasbourg, macron urged EU member States to unite in the face of populist and nationalist tendencies that threaten the concept of Europe as a Bastion of liberal democratic values.

Macron said he was concerned by the growing sense of "doubt" in several European countries in the wake of the shock 2016 Brexit vote, which he said was creating divisions in the EU.

Macron called for an energetic campaign for the European Parliament election in May 2019 as the EU also deals with the challenges of Britain's departure.

The speech was heartily welcomed by Jean-Claude Juncker, the European commission president, but received a lukewarm response from others, including Manfred Weber, the German MEP who leads the European People's party, within which Orbán's MEPs sit.

In his first address to EU lawmakers, the europhile French leader said a robust democracy is the "best chance" for the European Union to fight against rising nationalism on the continent.

Juncker said Macron's arrival in power in France has "given new hope" to the world's biggest trading bloc.

"I don't want to belong to a generation of sleepwalkers, I don't want to belong to a generation that's forgotten its own past", the 40-year-old president added.

In his speech he condemned what he called "a fascination with the illiberal" in Europe.

He told European Union lawmakers it was important "to have a democratic, critical debate on what Europe is about".

The macron stressed that "at a meeting with the authoritarian response - democratic authoritarianism, and the authority of democracy".

Macron will meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin tomorrow, as France and Germany aim to agree on proposals for European Union reforms by June.
