Heads of state as well as chiefs of international bodies, including United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and International Monetary Fund Director General Christine Lagarde, joined French President Emmanuel Macron for the event.
The gathering follows Macron's meetings with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and United States President Donald Trump earlier on Saturday.
Macron has invited more than 70 world leaders to an international ceremony, set in Paris on Sunday (November 11), in homage to the signing of the Armistice that ended the conflict.
