Hollande, Trump agree to try "clarify positions" on key issues, including Ukraine

US president-elect Donald Trump and French President Francois Hollande vowed in a telephone call Friday to try to "clarify positions" on potentially thorny issues, including Ukraine and the Middle East.

In a first call lasting 7-8 minutes the two leaders discussed the fight against terrorism, the battle against the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria, the conflict in eastern Ukraine and the Paris climate accord, a French presidential source told AFP.

The two men expressed a "desire to work together," the source added.
