Russian President Vladimir Putin will hold a meeting with a New French President Emmanuel Macron at Palace of Versailles outside Paris on Monday.

Macron, who was elected early this month, said it was indispensable to talk to Russia because there are a number of international issues that will not be resolved without a tough dialogue with them.

Putin is expected to attempt to build new ties with Macron after a troubled relationship with his predecessor, Francois Hollande.
