Macron proposes worldwide truce during Olympics

Macron proposes a truce in conflicts during the Olympics

French President Emmanuel Macron wants a ceasefire in Ukraine for the duration of the Summer Olympics in Paris.

This is reported by BMF TV.

The truce concerns not only Ukraine but also the Gaza Strip, Sudan and other hot spots around the world.

“We will work on the Olympic truce,” the French president said.

It is also reported that Macron will ask Chinese leader Xi Jinping, with whom he is due to meet, to help him in this matter.

Earlier, Macron said that France would offer Russia a ceasefire in Ukraine for the duration of the Olympics.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has previously said that Russian and Belarusian athletes will be able to participate in the games.

But this will happen only if they do not actively support Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
