French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said Wednesday he was leaving the government.

Fabius, whose departure has long been rumoured, replied "yes" when journalists asked if he was taking part in his final cabinet meeting on Wednesday.

The 69-year-old Fabius, who was France's youngest ever prime minister when he took the role aged 37 in 1984, is expected to take up a position as head of France's Constitutional Court.

He was widely praised for his role overseeing the successful UN climate negotiations in Paris in December.
