How Macron convinced Trump to strike Syria

"I assure you, we have convinced him that it is necessary to stay for the long-term", he told veteran journalists Jean-Jacques Bourdin and Edwy Plenel, charged with the two-hour grilling.

Appearing in a two-hour live broadcast on French television BFM and online investigative site Mediapart, the 40-year-old leader said the U.S., Britain and France had "full global legitimacy to intervene" in order to enforce worldwide humanitarian law.

The intervention on Friday night to Saturday was "legitimate in multilateral framework", said Macron. The airstrikes marked Macron's biggest foreign policy yet.

On Friday, Trump said he "ordered the United States armed forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapon capabilities of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad". "We convinced him to remain", he said.

Mr Macron said "we can not tolerate the normalisation of the use of chemical weapons", in a statement.

In nine days, Macron goes to Washington for the first state visit under Trump's presidency - and the French leader can't be seen as Trump's lapdog.

Macron invited Trump to assist to Bastille day celebrations previous year and will travel to Washington on a state visit later this month.

Macron reaffirmed that there was proof of chemical attacks, adding: "We had reached a point where these strikes were necessary to give back the [international] community some credibility".

Less than a year ago, in the ornate Gallery of Battles of the palace of Versailles, he warned the Russian leader in their first meeting that the use of chemical weapons in Syria would be a red line that would result in reprisals.

Russian Federation has military forces, including air defenses, in several areas of Syria to support Assad in his long war against anti-government opposition forces.

The French president nevertheless said he wanted to engage in dialogue with all parties involved, including Moscow, in order to find a political solution for Syria.

Speaking to Fox News, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley explained Sunday that the U.S. will not withdraw its forces from Syria until it accomplishes its three primary goals, which include defeating the Islamic State, preventing chemical weapons use, and securing a solid position to monitor Iranian activities in the region.

Like Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May, Macron has faced a domestic backlash for striking Syria without consulting parliament, but he defended the move as well within his constitutional powers.

Macron, criticised by the far-left and far-right and part of the conservatives over the attacks, said France, Britain and the United States had "complete worldwide legitimacy to act".
