PM Calls Up French President-Elect to Congratulate Him

Macron was elected president of France on Sunday, defeating Marine Le Pen, a far-right nationalist who threatened to take France out of the European Union.

Chinese President Xi Jinping congratulated Macron, saying China and France shared a "responsibility toward peace and development in the world". However, Le Pen called on all patriots "to join us" in constituting a "new political force" during the upcoming legislative elections.

"Happy that the French chose a European future". What's more, there are few signs yet that the first-round Fillon/Mélenchon/Hamon voters who together made up about half of second-round Macron voters will decisively support his En Marche! party going into the legislative elections next month, with polls putting the party only a few percentage points ahead going into the first round.

President Kiska: Your victory is a happy day for all who believe in a united and strong Europe.

President Kiska is looking forward to cooperating with Marcon and deepening what he described as "traditionally excellent and intense" relations between Slovakia and France.

Prior to the election in France, Putin invited Macron's rival Le Pen to Moscow.

"This is a victory for the French people and for European cooperation". "I want Emmanuel Macron to succeed".

While Trump has vowed to put "America first" and curtail immigration and free trade, and Britain has turned its back on the European Union, the liberal Macron has pledged economic reforms for a France at the heart of the European project.

"I look forward to working closely with President-elect Macron in the years ahead as we work together on a progressive agenda to promote worldwide security, increase collaboration in science and technology, and create good, middle class jobs on both sides of the Atlantic", he said in a statement earlier.
