Text size Aa Aa

French President Emmanuel Macron said on Saturday a draft trade deal reached between the European Union and the Mercosur group of South American countries was a "good agreement" that met key French demands.

The accord protected European geographical origin certification for food products, he said during a news conference at the end of a summit of the G20 nations in Japan.

Macron welcomed Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro's commitment to the Paris climate agreement, saying this helped maintain support for the accord among the G20 nations with the exception of the United States.
