French President Emmanuel Macron confronted fellow world leaders with an uncompromising validation of worldwide cooperation, calling on them to work together to maintain peace and avoid the spiral of war that marked the Armistice signed 100 years ago.

Guns fell silent on November 11, 1918, ending the four-year war that killed at least 10 million soldiers and millions of civilians. The meeting came soon after Donald Trump arrived in Paris and criticized his host via Twitter, calling Macron's support for a European military force "very insulting".

"President Macron of France has just suggested that Europe build its own military in order to protect itself from the US, China and Russian Federation", the US president tweeted, referring to remarks made by Macron in an interview three days earlier.

"You can not fight better than we fought together", said Mr. Trump.

There has been a similar resurgence in nationalist-populist sentiment from Brazil to Turkey and the Philippines, echoing trends in Russian Federation and the United States and challenging the multilateralism that leaders like Macron are keen to preserve.

"Very insulting, but perhaps Europe should first pay its fair share of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, which the U.S. subsidizes greatly!", he added.

"Franco-German reconciliation was at the very heart of what we've been seeing together", said Dominique Moisi, a French foreign policy expert at the Paris-based Institute Montaigne and an informal adviser to the Macron campaign.

The relationship between Trump and Macron has soured as the US president has promoted an "America First" foreign policy that has unsettled allies on trade and defense.

Macron told him that he agrees.

Australians mark 100 years since end of WWI.

Trump's visit had been much anticipated after he called off a trip to the Belleau Wood battlefield in northern France on Saturday due to the rain, a decision for which he was widely criticised.

"We remember the heroes who lost their lives in the horror of the trenches".

He will host Trump, Merkel, Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Canadian prime minister Trudeau, among others, for dinner at Orsay Museum on Sunday evening.

He explained that the US would like to assist Europe with its security obligations, so long as the costs are reasonably distributed, and that's why he's pushed so aggressively for America's allies to increase their contributions to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.

The Russian president is hoping his personal ties with Trump, who regularly touts their good relationship, will at some point yield a softening of the US approach to his country.
