France’s Macron congratulates Johnson

French President Emmanuel Macron congratulates Boris Johnson, the Brexit-hardliner soon to become Britain’s next prime minister.
Macron, hosting EU Commission President-Elect Ursula von der Leyen on her first visit to an EU country since her election a week ago, said he wants to work “as quickly as possible” with Johnson, not just on European issues but on Iran and international security, subjects in which France is closely linked to Britain and Germany.
