President.

Right now he is having lunch with other heads of state.

That is right.

There are 17 in all.

The british prime minister, the german chancellor, the ukrainian president and the russian president.

The president of france is trying to host, but also use this as an opportunity to try to forge some kind of peace in ukraine.

He led some ceremonies with president obama at the first american cemetery that was established on european soil during world war ii.

Yesterday he hosted the russian president for a private dinner at his palace.

He greeted him this morning at the state lunch.

Both he and president obama have been working behind the scenes to get the russian resident to sit down directly with this new ukrainian president-elect, he will be inaugurated tomorrow.

It was not the french president but the german chancellor who succeeded in doing that.

The three of them all chatting for a short while.

It is hard not to see that as an achievement.

That was one of the biggest goals of the head of state to get vladimir putin to sit down with the new ukrainian president-elect.

These two men have never actually met face-to-face.

What we have in the eastern ukraine, separatists if you will and ukrainian forces, if there is going to be any kind of peace there it is essential that these to start talking.

Thank you so much, ryan.
