President Donald Trump and Russia President Vladimir Putin did not discuss a Cold War-era missile treaty from which the United States plans to withdraw during their brief chat Sunday in Paris, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Interfax.

Putin, who attended WWI Armistice commemorations in the French capital, said the conversation between the two leaders was good, Reuters reported, citing Russian news agencies.

The Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) was signed by former President Ronald Reagan and Soviet Union President Mikhail Gorbachev in 1987. Trump has not given a specific timeline for the U.S. withdrawal from the pact.

Meanwhile, The Guardian reported, although Trump looked on grimly throughout a speech by French President Emmanuel Macron that rebuked nationalism, he flashed a smile at Putin, who shook hands with Macron and Germany's Angela Merkel — and then gave Trump a thumbs-up.
