Earlier this afternoon, Mrs May said would work with her “friends and allies” in the DUP.
She added: “As we do, we will continue to work with our friends and allies in the Democratic Unionist party in particular.
“Our two parties have enjoyed a strong relationship over many years and this gives me the confidence to believe that we will be able to work together in the interests of the whole United Kingdom.”
DUP leader Ms Foster said they would would be entering talks with the Conservatives to discuss “how it may it be possible to bring stability to our nation at this time of great challenge”.
