Nov 11, 2018: Trump and Putin set to meet in Paris

FRANCE - U.S. President Donald Trump and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin plan to meet in Paris amid a continuing dispute over a key nuclear arms treaty.

Both presidents will be in the French capital for World War One centenary commemorations, and plan to hold a bilateral meeting on the sidelines.

The meeting was arranged during a visit by U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton to Moscow in October, during which he conveyed U.S. plans to withdraw from the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty.

The U.S. says Russia’s development of a new medium-range missile violates the deal. Russia denies claims it has breached the treaty and warns that withdrawal is a “dangerous step.”

The Paris meeting will be Trump and Putin’s first encounter since a summit in Helsinki in July, which unleashed a storm of criticism that Trump was cosying up to the Kremlin.

21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
