Apr 15, 2024

French President Emmanuel Macron has said he will work to achieve a ceasefire during the upcoming Summer Olympics in Paris, in line with the Games' long-standing goal of promoting peace through sport.

This was reported by Reuters.

"We'll do all we can to have an Olympics truce," he said.

The French president noted that he was referring to the Middle East, as well as Ukraine and Sudan.

"China's president will visit Paris in a few weeks, I will ask him to help me (to get an Olympics truce)," Macron said.

Xi Jinping is expected to visit Paris next month.

"The Games are also a time of diplomacy and peace," Macron said.

The 2024 Summer Olympics are scheduled to take place from July 26 to August 11. Games XXXIII will be held in the French capital Paris.
