The French President spoke this morning to Malcolm Turnbull, Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of Australia, to congratulate him [on his election].

He emphasized the high quality of relations between France and Australia and expressed his wish for the new momentum engaged during the November 2014 state visit – the first by a French President to Australia – to continue.

France and Australia have a great deal of common ground on all the international issues and are combating terrorism together in Iraq and Syria.
