Les fesses embrassent

From today's London Daily Telegraph:

France has hailed the US election as an important moment in world diplomacy calling it an opportunity to revive the transatlantic relationship - no matter who wins.

French Foreign Minister Michel Barnier ... told RTL radio: "I can ... tip my hat to American democracy. "A new stage is starting. It is a very important moment for the world." He said France will work with the new American administration. ...

Last week he said he hoped for a new alliance with the United States.
