Putin: No meeting with Trump at Paris WWI event

The anticipated summit between Presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin was called off at the WWI centenary events they both attended in Paris on Sunday, although only five seats separated them at the ceremony. Putin told Russian media that he and Trump had decided “not to interrupt the schedule of the events and would meet on the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in Argentina on Nov. 26-30.
The Russian president, speaking to RT’s France network, praised French president Macron’s idea of a European army – which Trump blasted – saying that it could “strengthen the multipolar nature of the world.”  There was insufficient common ground on the subjects at issue between Moscow and Washington, including the impasse on Syria, to justify a meeting at this point.

    Anyhow, terrorist people infiltrated in West Bank without Israeli citizenship must go back to Jordan and Syria. I trust IDF could oversee the repatriations to go in order and fast.
