VP Harris and French President Macron meet at NASA


WASHINGTON, D.C. (NBC) - Vice President Kamala Harris met with President Emmanuel Macron of France Wednesday.

The Vice President hosted Macron at NASA headquarters in Washington, D.C.

The meeting was to highlight the more than 60 years of space cooperation between the U.S. and France with a large focus on improving the climate crisis.

During a briefing, Harris and Macron gave remarks celebrating joint accomplishments in space and made commitments for the future.

"And in two weeks, the United States and France will launch a satellite from Vandenberg...which will conduct the first ever global survey of the Earth's water surface. It's very exciting because this innovation will actually help us to improve water management and better inform agricultural decisions. It will also help coastal communities around the world prepare for rising seas."
