French President Emmanuel Macron puts out a tweet confirming he phoned Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu on his right-religious bloc’s victory in last week’s election.

In a tweet, Macron says the two both want to strengthen “the already strong ties” between France and Israel.

The French president does not mention an invitation for Netanyahu to soon visit France, as the former premier said in his statement on the phone call.
