Putin says had good conversation with Trump in Paris

French President Emmanuel Macron delivers a speech while President Donald Trump looks on before a lunch at the Elysee Palace in Paris

"It was very attractive, so well done", was Trump's verdict on the ceremony, at which his host, French President Emmanuel Macron, delivered a stinging indictment of nationalism. By saying our interests first, who cares about the others, we erase what a nation holds dearest, what gives it life, what makes it great and what is essential: its moral values.

In the preceding days, Macron had toured former battlefields along France's western front, where he warned that nationalism threatened to undo the European unity so carefully rebuilt since World War Two - a theme he returned to on Sunday. President Trump was not among them. "Let's reject the fascination for turning in on ourselves, violence, and domination".

The 40-year-old called on countries to join hands to fight challenges such as climate change, poverty, starvation and inequality.

BEARDSLEY: It was the French-German couple who stole the show this weekend.

Conceived by French President Emmanuel Macron, the Forum was meant to highlight the importance of worldwide institutions in helping resolve conflicts, avert wars and spread prosperity.

Under a sea of black umbrellas, a line of leaders led by Macron and his wife, Brigitte, marched in silence on the cobbles of the Champs-Elysees, after dismounting from their buses. Putin shook Mr. Trump's hand, flashed him a thumbs-up sign and patted Mr. Trump's arm as he arrived, and Mr. Trump offered a wide smile.

Arriving last for the event, Putin made for his United States counterpart to shake his hand before giving him a thumbs-up sign, while smiling.

Trump has pulled out of a number of global treaties from climate change to the Iran nuclear deal, and recently the disarmament treaty with Russian Federation. He said the USA pays billions "protecting other countries, and we get nothing but Trade Deficits and Losses". In Helsinki in July, Trump's apparent acceptance of Putin's denials Russian Federation had intervened in the vote over the conclusions of US intelligence triggered a wave of criticism in Washington and a push for new sanctions in Congress.

So far it was their first meeting not related with global forums.

I don't want it to move from London, I just feel like the concept of this event should be the one that travels, he said. It's been a good place for us players to showcase our talents and after Paris it's an easy event to come to.

According to The Associated Press, Putin told Russian broadcaster RT that he didn't speak with Trump in Paris but said the two will meet on the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in Argentina later this month.

Mr Trump also caused widespread anger on Saturday by pulling out of a visit to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery, 50 miles north of Paris, because of "bad weather".

President Donald Trump escalated his verbal assaults against France on Tuesday, suggesting that America's stalwart European ally would have been vanquished in both world wars if not for the military firepower provided by the United States.

The U.S. president was also planning to skip the Peace Forum his host was organizing later on Sunday.

Trump arrives at the Suresnes American Cemetery and Memorial in Paris. He also spent time with Macron on Saturday, when the two stressed their shared desire for more burden-sharing during a quick availability with reporters.

Police tackled the women and the motorcade continued uninterrupted.

More than 60 heads of state and government gathered - silent, sombre and reflective - for a ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the mute and powerful symbol of sacrifice to the millions who died from 1914-18.

"France knows what it owes these fighters that came from across the world, France salutes with honor the death of soldiers that it fought", he said.
