PARIS (Reuters) - French President Emmanuel Macron will receive Russia's Vladimir Putin at the palace of Versailles outside Paris on May 29 to inaugurate an exhibition marking 300 years of Franco-Russian diplomatic ties, a French presidency official said on Monday.

Putin and Macron had a phone call last week to discuss regional crises in Ukraine and Syria.
