World leaders have honored the WW1 fallen soldiers in France

This week-end countries across the globe have commemorated the end of World War One, accomplished through the signing of the Armistice treaty on November 11th 1918, which concluded all conflicts between the Allies and Germany. Crowds of people gathered around important landmarks in their respective countries in order to pay tribute to the fallen.

France had a big commemoration event at the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, which was scheduled to accommodate 70 world leaders in order to celebrate the end of the Great War.

Among them were Germany’s chancellor Angela Merkel and French president Emmanuel Macron, who unveiled a plaque, serving as a means to honour those fallen in combat,  and renew friendly relations between the two former enemy nations.
