From the White House :
Readout of the President’s Meeting with President Hollande of France

President Obama met today with French President François Hollande on the margins of the G-7 Summit at Schloss Elmau in Germany.  The two leaders agreed on the importance of working together to promote a successful climate agreement at the Paris meetings in December.  They agreed that the duration of sanctions should be clearly linked to Russia's full implementation of the Minsk agreements and respect for Ukraine's sovereignty.  They discussed ongoing negotiations with Iran and agreed on maintaining strong P5+1 unity as we pursue a comprehensive deal to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.  They reaffirmed the importance of countering ISIL in Iraq and Syria, and also the need to support the establishment of a unified government in Libya.  They also discussed the opportunity represented by the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (T-TIP) to promote growth and jobs on both sides of the Atlantic.
