BBC:Armistice Day: Macron and Merkel mark end of World War One

12 November 2018 | 01:58 | FOCUS News Agency
Paris. French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel have left their own mark of reconciliation at the start of events to mark the centenary of the end of World War One, BBC reports.
They signed a book of remembrance in a railway carriage identical to the one in which the 1918 Armistice was sealed.
The day had a tense beginning amid a row between Mr Trump and Mr Macron over European defence.
The French leader said the EU needed a joint army now that the US was pulling out of a key disarmament treaty with Russia.
Mr Trump described the comments as insulting and said Europe should pay its share of costs within Nato, the Euro-Atlantic alliance.
After a meeting at the Elysée Palace, Mr Macron said he agreed that Europe should pay more.
