What is the difference from the Franco-German project for a Parliamentary Assembly discussed in October 2018?

In October 2018, the French and German governments discussed the possibility of the creation of a Franco-German Parliamentary Assembly to debate a certain number of subjects, in particular questions of defence.

The main difference is that this Parliamentary Assembly is purely a consultative body (as moreover is the conference of national parliaments which already exists in the context of the present treaties), whereas we are proposing the creation of a European Assembly which would have real fiscal and budgetary powers enabling it in the last resort to adopt common taxes which serve a common budget.
