What diplomatic battles will the French leader pick in 2018? In his New Year's address to the diplomatic corps, Emmanuel Macron once again positioned himself as anti-Trump by suggesting that dialogue is the only way forward in Syria and Iran. As head of a NATO member with a permanent seat at the UN Security Council, the French president also touted an April conference on the fight against the financing of terrorism.
