    Putin and Macron vowed to improve relations and jointly address international problems during their first official meeting in Versailles in May. 

    The French president admitted at the time, however, that he had “some disagreements” with his Russian counterpart, but said that the two leaders discussed them openly in a “frank exchange of views.”

    According to Macron, serious international problems cannot be resolved without Moscow. France is interested in intensifying cooperation with Russia, particularly in resolving the Syrian crisis, he said, adding that this issue demands “an inclusive political solution.”

    President Putin welcomed Macron’s statement, saying that Moscow and Paris are determined to cooperate in resolving the crises in Syria, Ukraine and the Korean Peninsula, as well as to fight terrorism together.
