Coronavirus: Macron prepares an “important initiative” with Trump


Two international summits devoted to joint efforts against the disease were held on Thursday, an extraordinary G20 and a European summit.

French President Emmanuel Macron announced on the night of Thursday to Friday that he was preparing with the US President Donald Trump and other countries a “major new initiative” in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.

“Very good discussion with @realDonaldTrump. Faced with the COVID-19 crisis, with other countries, we are preparing for the next few days an important new initiative, “tweeted the French head of state after an exchange with his American counterpart, without giving further details.

For its part, the White House said that the two leaders had agreed on “the importance of close cooperation through the G7, G20 and P5 (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council, editor’s note) to help multilateral organizations, including the World Health Organization, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, quickly end the pandemic and minimize its economic impact. ”

Two international summits devoted to joint efforts against the disease were held on Thursday, an extraordinary G20 and a European summit.

The new coronavirus has already killed more than 23,000 people worldwide, two thirds of them in Europe, where nearly 275,000 cases are officially diagnosed, according to a count by AFP on Thursday evening.

The United States and France are among the countries most affected by the epidemic. It is growing exponentially on American soil. The country, which had initially observed the spread of the virus from afar, may soon become the epicenter of the pandemic.
