Today, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met with the President of France, Emmanuel Macron, on the margins of the G7 Summit taking place in Apulia, Italy.

The Prime Minister and the President reflected on the discussions among G7 leaders throughout the first day of the G7 Summit, including on their unwavering support for Ukraine in the face of Russia’s illegal aggression, peace and stability in the Middle East, and the promotion of an inclusive and dynamic growth in Africa and around the world, anchored in the global clean energy transition.

The two leaders highlighted the strong partnership between Canada and France in multiple areas, including European and transatlantic defence, the protection of democratic values, energy transition, and La Francophonie. They discussed negotiations on Atlantic halibut fishing quotas and indicated that they hoped a mutually beneficial agreement would be reached quickly.

The leaders also discussed the results of the recent European elections. Prime Minister Trudeau indicated that, as a close ally of the European Union (EU), Canada will continue to work with the EU in the areas of security, democracy, human rights, and the defence of the rules-based international system, among other priorities.

Prime Minister Trudeau looked forward to hosting President Macron in Canada this year.
