Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar has promised to improve his French language skills before Ireland “officially” joins the Francophonie.

Varadkar made the light-hearted remark during a speech on Tuesday (October 24) at the Elysee Palace in Paris alongside French Prime Minister Emmanuel Macron.

The Irish leader earned a “bravo” from Macron for conducting a large portion of his speech in French.

In it, he praised Macron for his leadership and insisted that Ireland would remain at the heart of Europe, even as its closest neighbour, the UK, was leaving.
