Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi hailed the results of French presidential election, and expressed the hope that Tehran-Paris ties would be expanded after the new president takes the office.
Qassemi on Monday welcomed the results of French presidential election, and congratulated the French nation and government on the event.
He also expressed the hope that, once Emmanuel Macron takes the office, the relations between Iran and France will be promoted based on the grounds laid in the previous years and in line with the two nations’ interests.
The pro-EU centrist Macron won the French presidency with a decisive victory over the far-right Marine Le Pen on Sunday.
Macron, 39, a former economy minister who ran as a “neither left nor right” independent promising to shake up the French political system, took 65.1% to Le Pen’s 34.9%.
