Putin, Trump to discuss INF Treaty on sidelines of G20 summit

French President Macron says nationalism is a 'betrayal of patriotism' as Trump looks on during ceremony

Video of a speech Trudeau gave last summer at an anniversary event for a 1942 Canadian-led Second World War raid resurfaced and was circulated widely on Twitter on Saturday, hours after Trump cancelled due to rain a visit to a French cemetery where thousands of American soldiers are buried. On Sunday, he listened as he was lectured on the dangers of nationalist isolation, and then he headed home just as the inaugural Paris Peace Summit was getting underway. The question remains open whether the multilateralists can do that without US leadership. He added: "It is time that these very rich countries either pay the United States for its great military protection, or protect themselves".

The trip provided Mr. Trump scant relief from the political challenges at home, where Democrats took control of the House and his ousting of Jeff Sessions as attorney general spurred more scrutiny of his dealings with the Russian Federation investigation.

Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who on Saturday poignantly visited the forest clearing in northeastern France where the Armistice was signed, had signalled beforehand that they meant to use the Paris ceremony to warn about the modern-day danger of nationalism.

One of dozens of world leaders attending World War I commemorations in France this weekend, Trump tweeted after landing in Paris that Macron's call for a "real European army" was "insulting".

About 250,000 underage British soldiers fought in the War. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity in keeping with French customs, said Macron explained the European army issue to Trump, stressing that France was not making a choice between a European defense mechanism and multilateral organizations such as North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

In Paris, the jewel that Germany sought to capture in 1914 but which the Allies fought successfully to defend, the armistice commemorations were being followed by the afternoon opening of a peace forum pushed by the host, Mr Macron.

When the two leaders met Saturday at the Elysee Palace, they avoided a public dust-up, but their smiles were tight and the tension between them was thick.

The symbolism during Trump's visit couldn't have been more stark. The Marine One helicopters could take the presidential delegation 50 miles to the site, and White House officials decided that driving would have been too disruptive. She had slogans, included the words "Fake" and "Peace", written on her chest.

However, video posted to Twitter and broadcast on television showed a man repeatedly swinging an object at two police officers. Police have also urged the public to avoid the Street after witnesses describe a vehicle bursting into flames.

Despite these measures, a protester from the radical feminist group Femen managed to jump over a barricade and got within metres of Trump's motorcade as he made his way up the Champs-Elysees.

Trump, Putin, First Lady Melania, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte all stood together and exchanged pleasantries during ceremonies near the Arch de Triomphe Sunday.

When they parted they told each other "until we meet again", Peskov said.

Trump has pulled out of a number of global treaties from climate change to the Iran nuclear deal, and recently the disarmament treaty with Russian Federation. And you know what? "In saying "Our interests first, whatever happens to the others", you erase the most precious thing a nation can have, that which makes it live, that which causes it to be great and that which is most important - its moral values". "We have a lot of problems".

Speaking on Bloomberg Television Sunday, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg dismissed concerns over Trump's commitment to the Western alliance, despite his light footprint at the weekend's ceremonies. "We can't have that", Trump said at a Houston, Texas rally on the 23rd of October.

"It is our duty to preserve the civilization they defended and to protect the peace they so nobly gave their lives to secure one century ago", he said after spending a moment, standing alone amid the cemetery's white crosses, holding a black umbrella.

So far it was their first meeting not related with worldwide forums. Afterward he flew back to Washington.
