Putin in France: Divisions ahead of first meeting

France’s new president Emmanuel Macron will meet Russia’s leader for the first time on Monday.

It could be an awkward conversation; during the election campaign, Vladimir Putin played host to Macron’s rival -the far-right Marine Le Pen.

And Macron has called for sanctions on Russia not to be lifted.

Al Jazeera’s David Chater reports from Paris.
