A full meeting of the President of the United States of America Donald trump and the leader of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin was canceled because of the request of French President Emmanuel Macron. About it reports “Kommersant” with reference to European diplomatic source.
“While everyone is wondering what has caused the change of the format of the meeting between Putin and trump in Paris, which was announced after the visit (national security Advisor to U.S. President – ed.) John Bolton to Russia, and come up with answers in the style of high politics, it was simple: Emmanuel macron has asked Moscow and Washington not to hold full-format talks in Paris that they are not “eclipsed” prepared by the Elysee Palace events and meetings. This is exactly how it was worded. It would seem that in 2018 it is difficult to imagine that the style of “sun king” is still alive. But as they say, “C’est La vie””, – quotes the edition of the interlocutor.
Note, 11 Nov Donald trump, and Vladimir Putin will come to Paris in the events dedicated to the centenary of the First world war. Earlier it was reported about a possible meeting of the leaders.
