French President Emmanuel Macron has told Vladimir Putin that it is “vital” a ceasefire goes into force in northwest Syria, where Moscow-backed government forces are leading a military offensive against rebels.
Macron, who on Monday hosted Putin at his summer residence on the southern French coast days before a G7 summit later this week, expressed “profound worry” about the bombing campaign in northwest Syria.
