French President Emmanuel Macron said on Thursday he and US President Donald Trump had asked diplomats to draw up in the coming weeks a concrete initiative aimed at preparing the future of Syria.

“On the Iraq-Syria situation, we have agreed to continue working together, in particular on the building of a roadmap for the post-war period,” Macron said in a joint news conference during Trump’s visit to Paris.

“We have asked our diplomats to work in that direction, so in the next few weeks a concrete initiative can be taken and managed by the P5,” Macron said, referring to the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council.
