Trump, Macron to meet at NATO summit in UK


French President Emmanuel Macron says he will meet with US President Donald Trump ahead of the December 3-4 NATO summit in London of United Kingdom.

Macron tweeted that he had an "excellent discussion" with Trump on Monday evening about Syria, Iran and the NATO military alliance, reports AP.

The phone call comes after Macron claimed last week that a lack of US leadership is causing the "brain death" of NATO and said the European Union must step up and start acting as a strategic world power.

Trump's preoccupation with defense spending has been a constant theme since he came to office in 2016 and is expected to feature at the December 3-4 summit in London.
