[Asia News = Reporter Reakkana] WASHINGTON: US President Joe Biden and French President Emmanuel Macron on Friday (Oct 22) discussed security cooperation in Africa, Europe and the Indo-Pacific, as the two countries work to mend fences after a rift over a US security pact with Britain and Australia, Reuters reported.

Biden and Macron plan to continue their discussions when they meet this month in Rome at a summit of leaders from the Group of 20 major economies, the White House said.In his call with Macron, Biden reviewed ongoing efforts by both countries to support stability and security in the Sahel region and to enhance cooperation in the Indo-Pacific, as well as efforts to enable a stronger European defense, the White House said.

The visits follow a trip by US Secretary of State Antony Blinken to Paris earlier this month, where he said he had "very positive, very productive" conversations with French leaders. Vice President Kamala Harris also will meet with Macron during a visit to Paris in November, the White House said, underscoring efforts to repair ties between the United States and France after Australia scrapped a French submarine contract in favor of a pact with Washington and London last month.
