Trump, Macron discuss Ukraine in Paris

The situation in Ukraine was one of the main issues at a meeting between U.S. and French Presidents Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron in Paris.

The U.S. leader said this at a joint press conference in the French capital on Thursday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"We did discuss many things today, including the ceasefire in Syria. We discussed Ukraine. We discussed a lot of different topics," Trump said.

He noted that they had also discussed new threats from North Korea, the situation in Libya and other countries, as well as challenges posed by global terrorism for security around the world. Separately, the presidents discussed the Paris climate agreement.

The U.S. president and First Lady Melanie Trump on Wednesday began an official visit to France at the invitation of French President Emmanuel Macron. The visit is dedicated to the national holiday in France - the Bastille Day, as well as the 100th anniversary of the participation of U.S. troops in the First World War. The U.S. president will stay in the French capital for two days.
