PM Alexis Tsipras says Macron’s win offers a reprieve for France and Europe

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras welcomed the victory of Emmanuel Macron in the French presidential election on Sunday, saying it offers a reprieve to France and Europe, adding he looks forward to a close cooperation.

“The victory of Emmanuel Macron offers a breather for France and the whole of Europe. I’m certain we will work closely to change Europe’s course and inspire its peoples again, so that we cannot relive the nightmare of the extreme-right,” he said in two tweets.
