Winston Peters criticises French President Emmanuel Macron’s Armistice Day speech

Facebook will allow French regulators to "embed" inside the company to examine how it combats online hate speech, the first time the wary tech giant has opened its doors in such a way, President Emmanuel Macron said on Monday.

Yuri Ushakov, Putin's foreign affairs adviser, said on Russian state television that a preliminary agreement on a Trump-Putin meeting had been reached but was dropped after taking into account what he called French considerations.

Another sore point for Macron and Trump: the question of a joint European army, which Macron has championed but which could overlap with the USA -led North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance.

When asked about the tweet, Trump said to Macron: "Understand that the United States can only do so much", adding that the USA wanted to help.

Speaking at another summit focusing on new technologies in Paris city hall, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said "one of the things we have to do as a society as tech leaders but also as government is reassure people that the innovation, going to empower them in ways they will feel part of the world we're building, of the workplaces we're creating".

President Trump and first lady Melania Trump joined a host of world leaders at the Arc de Triomphe in Paris on Sunday to mark the centennial anniversary of the end of World War I.

Macron pointed out that he pledged to boost France's military spending even before Trump upbraided North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members past year for not paying enough for their own defense.

President Donald Trump says victory came at a "terrible cost" to allied forces that fought and died in World War I. "It's an experiment, but a very important first step in my view".

Trump arrived without his wife, Melania, who is visiting Versailles Sunday with Macron's wife, Brigitte Macron.

The tense exchange with Trump is just the latest challenge for Macron, who was seen as a bulwark against rising European nationalism when he was elected a year ago.

In a rare public display of emotion by the leaders of two world powers, Macron and Merkel held hands on Saturday during a poignant ceremony in the Compiegne Forest, north of Paris, where French and German delegations signed the Armistice that ended the war. "And I'm a strong believer of the fact that this cooperation is good for everybody". Macron never meant that Europe had to protect itself from the USA, the official said. The French official suggested that Trump had conflated two separate issues, that of the US withdrawal from the INF treaty and the resulting threat to European security, and the need to create an autonomous military force in Europe.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, US President Donald Trump and the Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel were among the powerful world leaders at the Arc de Triomphe overnight. More than 1,500 Americans who perished in the war are buried there, the report states.
