On his European tour, Vice President Joe Biden today thanked French President François Hollande for hosting him in France.

“Mr. President, it is always a great pleasure — and I mean that literally, a pleasure — to visit France,” he said during a press conference with the French president. “And it was particularly nice to get a chance to have such a leisurely but informative lunch with you.  Your hospitality is unmatched in the world, and I want to thank you for that.”
