Johnson, Macron see 'opportunity to turn tide' in Ukraine war

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and French President Emmanuel Macron said on Sunday that they saw an "opportunity to turn the tide" in Ukraine, as London warned against trying to "settle" the conflict now.

A Downing Street spokesman said the leaders, meeting at the G7 summit in Germany, "agreed this is a critical moment for the course of the conflict, and there is an opportunity to turn the tide in the war".

But Johnson also cautioned Macron that "any attempt to settle the conflict now will only cause enduring instability".
