French President Emmanuel Macron has welcomed Donald Trump to Paris with an official military ceremony.

The US president then visited the tomb of Napoleon ahead of Friday’s Bastille Day celebrations.

The two leaders are expected to discuss joint efforts to combat the so-called Islamic State group in Syria and Iraq.

The trip is aimed at reaffirming historic ties but comes amid tension following Mr. Trump’s recent withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement.
