Pool report #7 - June 27, 2017

Fox News Radio's Jon Decker passes along this readout of President Trump's call with French President Macron, via the Élysée Palace:

President Trump began the exchange with a congratulatory message to the President following victory in the legislative elections.

The purpose of the meeting was to prepare for the bilateral meeting of the two presidents during the G20 meeting in Hamburg on 7 and 8 July.

They also took stock of the Syrian issue and the need to work towards a common response to a chemical attack in Syria.

The two presidents spoke about the situation in the Gulf and the need to avoid any escalation in the region. Both stressed that the fight against terrorism and its financing is a common challenge for all the countries of the region.

President Macron renewed his invitation to President Trump and his wife to attend the parade on July 14th during which this year will be celebrated the 100 years of the entry of the United States into the war with the French troops during the First World War.
