(Reuters) - French President Emmanuel Macron suggested to U.S. President Joe Biden two weeks ago that the United States and France seek a negotiated settlement in the Boeing-Airbus conflict over aircraft manufacturing that has lasted about two decades, CNBC reported on Wednesday, citing a source.

Biden was noncommittal on the outcome but said the relevant teams would follow up, according to the report https://cnb.cx/2Z4WFF2.

Macron and Biden spoke late last month, with the U.S. president expressing his desire to strengthen bilateral ties.
