The United States did not sign up to a charter against online hate speech at the G7 summit for legal reasons, French President Emmanuel Macron said on Monday after the end of the meeting.

"We formalized an agreement for the first time with several Anglo-Saxon and European platforms and with support from nearly all (G7) countries," Macron told reporters after the summit, which was held in southwestern France.

"We had a very good discussion with the United States, which for legal reasons was not able to formalize the agreement on this point," Macron said, adding he was hopeful it could be done in the coming weeks.
