LA MALBAIE, Quebec (Reuters) - French President Emmanuel Macron and U.S. President Donald Trump, who exchanged terse Twitter messages ahead of the G7 summit, had a brief “very cordial” discussion about trade and North Korea, a French official said on Friday.

Trump wanted to meet Macron upon his arrival in Quebec and the discussion lasted just over 10 minutes, the official said.
