Spanish PM congratulates new French leader

Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, Spain’s Conservative leader, has publicly congratulated French Socialist Francois Hollande, following his successful bid for the presidency.

His message, issued by the Prime Minister’s office, states his belief that a, “Fruitful, bilateral and European relationship will develop, which will be to the advantage of the Spanish-French friendship.”

Rajoy, whose spending cuts have sparked massive demonstrations, did not comment on Hollande’s view that the euro zone must broaden its focus from austerity, to incorporate growth.
