Conversation with Malcolm Turnbull
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.
The two leaders discussed ways in which Australia can contribute to the success of the Paris Climate Conference in December.
