Mending Strained Ties: Macron hosts Putin at Versailles Palace (part 2)
Date created :
Russian President Vladimir Putin was in France today for talks with newly elected French President Emmanuel Macron. Relations between the two nations have been strained for some time: France has been one of the key EU countries to push for sanctions over the crisis in Ukraine, and has also been at odds with Russia over Moscow’s backing of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. So with all of that on the table in Versailles, is there any way the two men can find common ground?
