Ready for talk to bring peace back to Syria: Macron

French leader defends strikes in Syria

French leader defends strikes in Syria

French President Emmanuel Macron said Sunday he has convinced President TrumpDonald John TrumpRobert De Niro, Ben Stiller play Mueller and Cohen in "SNL" parody of "Meet the Parents" Trump order targets wide swath of public assistance programs Comey says Trump reacted to news of Russian meddling by asking if it changed election results MORE to keep US troops in Syria long-term.

And in a reference to Trump's raging on Twitter at Russian Federation over the possibility of strikes, Macron added: "The second thing is that we have also convinced him that he must limit his strikes to chemical weapons, at a time when there was a media furore via tweet, as I'm sure you noticed".

On Saturday, joint US, UK and French strikes targeted Syrian government sites in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack.

Macron invited Trump to assist to Bastille day celebrations past year and will travel to Washington on a state visit later this month.

Announcing the strikes in an address to the nation on Friday evening in Washington, Mr Trump insisted: "America does not seek an indefinite presence in Syria - under no circumstances".

Macron added that the strikes on Syria had been "perfectly carried out".

"We have complete worldwide legitimacy to act in this framework", he said.

Saturday's strikes on Syria were the first major military operation since Macron's election in May previous year.

Days later, after Syrian president Bashar-al Assad carried out his latest deadly chemical-weapons attack against rebel forces and civilians, Trump was reported to be blustering about punishing Russian Federation and Iran, which would carry great risk of broadening the Syrian Civil War.

Despite soaring tensions with Russia, Macron stressed the need to "talk to everyone" in pursuing a Syrian settlement, saying his plans to visit Moscow in May remain unchanged. Stoltenberg said: "Before the attack took place last night, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies exhausted all other possible ways to address this issue to the U.N. Security Council but ... were blocked by Russian Federation ..."

Macron said that failing so far to get the red lines respected had led Russian authorities to think of Western powers that "these people from the global community - they are nice, they are weak". "This was not the first time that the Syrian regime has used chemical weapons against civilians but it must be the last". The Western states have accused forces of Assad of an attack with the use of chemical weapons in Duma.

"All of our missiles reached their target", he said.
