Putin to meet Macron during visit to Paris on May 29 – Kremlin
Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet his new French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, in Paris next Monday, the Kremlin has announced.

Putin’s visit will give the two leaders a chance to “discuss the state and the prospects of development of Russo-French relations in political, trade, economic, cultural and humanitarian spheres,” the Russian statement said.

The two leaders will also discuss international issues, including the fight against terrorism and the peace processes in Syria and Ukraine, the Kremlin said.

Putin and Macron will also together open an exhibition organized by Russia’s Hermitage Museum at Versailles, which is dedicated to the 300th anniversary of the visit to France by Russian Tsar Peter the Great.

The scheduled first meeting between Putin and Macron, who was elected France’s president on May 7, was earlier announced by Paris.
