    PARIS (Sputnik) - There will be no changes in the policies of the French government despite its reshuffle, and the deep reforms in various fields will continue, French President Emmanuel Macron said Tuesday.

    Earlier in the day, Macron reshuffled the government, replacing four ministers. Christophe Castaner, who served as the secretary of state for relations with parliament, took the post of interior minister, replacing Gerard Collomb, who retired at his own request. In addition, new ministers of culture, agriculture and territorial cohesion have been appointed.
