Varadkar, who has led the country since 2017 and became the youngest Prime Minister in Ireland's history, expressed his pride in the achievements in equality and modernization of the country, improving the living conditions of the population, and strengthening Ireland's international status.

He also acknowledged the existence of unresolved issues but emphasized that it was time to pass the responsibility to others.

Varadkar is leaving the positions of Prime Minister and leader of the Fine Gael party amidst preparations for elections, where his party risks being defeated by Sinn Féin.

It should be noted that his resignation came after a failed referendum on family issues and the role of women in public life, the results of which many associate with the government's ineffective campaign.

It was previously reported that in May, the Chinese leader Xi Jinping is going to France to strengthen ties with Europe, marking the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations.

We also wrote that Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez will present an initiative to the country's parliament to recognize the statehood of Palestine as a step towards facilitating peace in the conflict between Israel and Palestine.
