Macron, Trump Discuss Venezuela, Syria, Iraq

French President Emmanuel Macron and US President Donald Trump discussed Venezuela, Iraq and Syria in a telephone call on Friday.
As violence continues in Venezuela, following this week’s controversial election of a constituent assembly, Trump and Macron agreed that President Nicolas Maduro’s government must “restore the rights of the Venezuelan people”, a White House statement said, RFI reported.
On Friday, as the assembly met for the first time following an election boycotted by the opposition, a French presidential statement condemned the violence that has rocked the country for months and called for “mediation that would allow the revival of a credible, honest and serious dialogue between the government and the opposition”.
In their phone call, which lasted a little less than an hour and was described as “cordial”, Trump and Macron also discussed increasing cooperation in the conflict in Syria and Iraq.
The two presidents also discussed matters of mutual interest on North Korea and “reaffirmed the importance of all sides implementing the Minsk agreements to reach a peaceful settlement in Ukraine”, the statement said.
