French President Emmanuel Macron made keynote remarks at a ceremony in Paris to commemorate the centennial of the armistice that ended the fighting in World War I between Germany and allied powers. The event began with bells ringing out all around the city at “the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month,” as President Macron led a line of global leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, in marching up the cobbles of the Champs-Elysees to the Arc de Triomphe. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir arrived slightly later in separate motorcades. The ceremony included a performance by cellist Yo-Yo Ma; the reading by children of letters written by German, French, and British soldiers during the war; and a performance of Maurice Ravel’s “Bolero.” President Macron in his address spoke against nationalism, saying, “"Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism: nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism.” close
