As expected, Emmanuel Macron (an independent candidate, who got 24% of the votes) and Marine Le Pen (candidate of the far-right Front National, who got 21.3% of the votes) made it to the second round which will be held on 7 May. The EU's foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini ended her week of visits to China and India with a stopover in the Russian Federation (24 April). This was her first official visit to Moscow since she assumed office in 2014. With the launch of the EU-funded International Urban Cooperation programme (IUC) in India on Wednesday (26 April), the EU aims to promote EU-India policy dialogue on sustainable urban development through city-to-city pairing cooperation.
