10th March 2018   ·   0 Comments

NEW DELHI: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Saturday called on French President Emmanuel Macron in New Delhi and discussed ways to further enhance the India-France Strategic Partnership that was forged in 1998.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted that Sushma Swaraj and Mr Macron “exchanged views on further enhancing our strategic partnership in trade and investment, defence and security, culture, education and people-to-people ties”.

Earlier in the day, Mr Macron was accorded a ceremonial welcome at the Rashtrapati Bhavan following which he told the assembled media that France should be the best partner for India and the entry point to Europe.

Later in the day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Mr Macron will hold a bilateral summit after which a number of agreements across multiple sectors are likely to be signed.

Mr Macron arrived in India on Friday on a four-day visit during the course of which he will co-chair the founding conference of the International Solar Alliance (ISA) with PM Modi on Sunday.

The ISA is conceived as a coalition of solar resource-rich countries to address their special energy needs and provide a platform to collaborate on dealing with the identified gaps through a common, agreed approach.
