US President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron called British Prime Minister Theresa May on Friday to congratulate her after her Conservative Party won the most seats in a national election.
May, whose party fell short of winning an majority in parliament, has said she intends to lead a minority government backed by Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party.
"French President Emmanuel Macron called to congratulate the Prime Minister, and said he was pleased that she would continue to be a close partner," a spokesman for May's office said in a statement.
"They agreed that the strong friendship between our two countries was important and would endure."
The spokesman said May and Trump had also agreed to continue the close cooperation between their two countries.
