reconciled and preventing another catastrophic conflict like world war one was the theme of a major gathering of leaders in paris this afternoon the event aimed to highlight the importance of international institutions in preventing and solving global conflicts russian president vladimir putin canadian prime minister justin trudeau and scores of other world leaders took part but u.s. president donald trump did not attend. i'm going to medical address the forum warning of the risk nationalism may pose to global peace a peace we have today and that we accept. as something natural. is not unnatural in any way but we have to keep defending it to meet with god because i think and let me share my thoughts with you today on this day of commemoration you know not soon i know i cannot consent that i go back there to imply nationalism
