World leaders gather in Paris a century after WWI armistice

Live World leaders gather in Paris for peace conference                         Read more

That's a risk for a leader who may need their cooperation as he confronts China in a trade war and Iran over its foreign and nuclear policies.

Around 70 world leaders travelled to the French capital to mark the centenary of the 1918 Armistice on Sunday.

"Though sadly he did not make it, he was among the countless young men who never returned home, but through their sacrifice, they ascended to peace in heaven", President Trump said.

With Trump and other leaders looking on, Macron took on the rising tide of populism in the United States and Europe and urged leaders not to turn their backs by turning inward.

Trump on Saturday skipped a planned visit to Belleau Wood battlefield and cemetery because of heavy rain, sparking a storm of criticism for what some saw as disrespect to veterans. The Femen group claimed responsibility.

Sebastian Gorka said on Fox & Friends that French President Emmanuel Macron's remark on nationalism was "pathetic".

In the interview, Macron had cited Trump's plans to pull the United States out of a Cold War-era nuclear treaty and said a joint European Union force was needed to end Europe's reliance on United States military might.

The spat was the latest the two leaders, who struck up a warm relationship initially but have clashed over a growing list of issues, including Trump's decision to pull the USA out of the 2015 Paris climate accord and the Iran nuclear deal. German Chancellor Angela Merkel was positioned in pride of place between Mr Trump and Mr Macron, an eloquent symbol of victors and vanquished now standing together, shoulder to shoulder.

The Kremlin said that Putin and Trump would meet in the midst of this weekend's events, though Trump said earlier in the week that there was no time scheduled for a meeting.

The Kremlin said earlier that the prospect of a full meeting between the USA and Russian presidents had prompted huge worldwide media interest, leading to concern from the French organisers that this could overshadow the commemorations. And you know what?

"I want to speak of my concerns that are mixed in with today's commemoration, the concern that national blinders are spreading again, that actions are taken as if to simply ignore our mutual dependencies, relationships and binding ties, " Merkel said.

At a news conference last week, Trump defended his use of the phrase. Putin has been accused of rigging the 2018 Russian elections.

Speaking at Suresnes American Cemetery, Trump called out to six U.S. veterans from World War II who were in the crowd, and a 13-year-old American boy who had saved up to attend the event. In that treacherous forest and the surrounding fields, American Marines soldiers and allied forces fought, and they fought through hell to turn the tide of the war.

"President Macron of France has just suggested that Europe build its own military in order to protect itself from the U.S., China and Russian Federation".

Speaking shortly following the close of the Peace Forum, President Weah praised his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron for advancing the cause of global peace through the maiden edition of the Paris Peace Forum.

On a weekend meant to commemorate world war veterans, U.S. President Donald Trump's moniker as a self-declared nationalist garnered worldwide attention on the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.
