Biden congratulates Macron, ready to partner on global tasks
US President Joe Biden has congratulated France’s newly re-elected President Emmanuel Macron.
On Monday, Biden congratulated Macron following a missed call to him earlier in the day because the French leader was out enjoying his triumph.
The White House noted in a statement noted that during the call, Biden underscored the close and enduring relations between the United States and France, describing the country as “our oldest ally based on shared democratic values, economic ties, and security cooperation.”
“President Biden conveyed his readiness to continue working closely with President Macron on our shared global priorities,” the White House added.
An attempt to reach out to Macron on Sunday soon after he was confirmed to have defeated far-right leader, Marine Le Pen, didn’t go so well, because Macron was celebrating with a crowd of supporters.
“I tried to talk to him last night. I spoke to his staff and he was at the Eiffel Tower having a good time,” Biden told reporters earlier Monday.
