Trump and Macron discuss Syria, Iran and coronavirus
U.S. President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron discussed Syria and Iran, the White House press service said.
The two leaders emphasized the need for the United States and France to work together to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus, deputy White House press secretary Judd Deere said in a series of tweets.
The leaders also discussed the upcoming G7 summit, Iran's atomic activities, and the Syrian situation which is resulting in a humanitarian crisis in the northwestern part of the country, Deere added.
An Elysee official said Macron had suggested the idea to use the G7 forum to accelerate efforts to fight the disease. “President Trump thought that was a very good idea and the right forum,” the official said.
