PARIS (Reuters) - French President Emmanuel Macron said on Thursday Poland's judicial reform remained a cause for concern for France but that there were a decreasing number of subjects where the two countries did not see eye-to-eye.

"We have disagreements, which we talked about, but also points on which we share views," Macron said in a joint press conference with Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo.

Poland's ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party has been increasingly at loggerheads with the EU since coming to office in late 2015, locked in disputes with the bloc over immigration and putting courts and media under more government control.
