In the presence of 70 Heads of State and Governments, including Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, the main ceremony of the 100th anniversary of the Treaty that ended the First World War was held in the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.
State leaders, including Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, were received by Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte, at the presidential palace of Elysees on Sunday afternoon.
The leaders then moved to the Arc de Triomphe.
US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin greeted each other with a handshake at the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.
The ceremony took place under draconian measures.
