(Worthy News) - French President Emmanuel Macron and President Trump on the sidelines of the NATO summit in Brussels have reportedly agreed on a plan to push Middle East allies Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Jordan to start talks on way to put an end to Syria’s seven-year civil war.
French and U.S. officials at the ministerial held at NATO headquarters did not disclose additional details of the conversation between Mr. Trump and Mr. Macron on how they planned to entice the Gulf nations, as well as diplomats from Germany and the United Kingdom to come to the negotiating table. But the preliminary agreement between the U.S. and France comes ahead of two key meetings between both leaders and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Russian forces, along with Iranian military advisers and paramilitary groups like Hezbollah, have been vital in aiding regime forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad in quashing anti-government rebels in Damascus’ brutal military campaign — including the use of chemical weapons — beginning in 2011.
