Several Lebanese twitter accounts sarcastically demanded that their politicians be as gracious as Le Pen in accepting defeat and congratulating their opponent instead of "burning the streets". Macron won the presidency with 66 percent of votes cast but the vote saw a high number of blank or spoiled votes and unusually low turnout.

The media wasn't allowed to cover the visit. But in choosing Edouard Philippe, President Emmanuel Macron hopes he has ticked nearly all the right boxes.

The statement also condemned an April 28 ballistic missile launch by Pyongyang. Apart from reiterating its commitment to comply with all restrictive measures imposed on North Korea under previous resolutions, the Council hinted it might look at the possibility to tighten the grip on the state's economy, which is already suffering under a heavy burden of global sanctions.
Sunday's missile launch angered the White House which said the North had " been a flagrant menace for far too long " and called for tougher sanctions against Pyongyang . "Until the U.S. and its followers make a right choice, we will further produce sophisticated and diversified nuclear weapons and striking means and push to prepare for necessary tests", Pak said according to the North's state-run KCNA news agency.
The UN Security Council has strongly condemned North Korea's latest ballistic missile test and vowed strong measures, including sanctions, to derail Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program.

He noted that as president, he has an "absolute right" to do this. "Russia could identify our sources or techniques", a senior USA official told The Washington Post .

Trump's early morning defense of sharing information with the Russians appeared to differ in tone from ones offered by aides who the night earlier declared the story to be "false". American presidents have the power to unilaterally disclose any material - even the most secret intelligence - without going through any kind of formal process, or worrying about prosecution.
The irony seemed to be lost on Trump that - at least in the case of sharing classified intelligence with the Russians - he was, in fact, the original leaker. The new controversy came even as there was no letup in the conflict Trump stirred last week with the firing of Comey and as Trump prepares for his first foreign trip, which include stops in Saudi Arabia and Israel.
