Macron Initiates Global Ceasefire During the 2024 Olympics

French President Emmanuel Macron has announced his proposal for a ceasefire in major world conflicts, including the war in Ukraine, during the upcoming Olympic Games in Paris. The French President is seeking the support of Chinese leader Xi Jinping in this initiative.

The leader of China will be coming to Paris in a few weeks. I have asked him for help. In 2022, we faced a similar task ahead of the Winter Olympic Games hosted by China... So this could also become a diplomatic moment for peace.
