Paris, Once again Modi-Macron bonhomie came to the fore as Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to France displayed the strong friendship and goodwill not only between the two countries but also between the two leaders.
The Prime Minister paid an official visit to France on May 4 on his way back from the 2nd India-Nordic Summit in Copenhagen.
In Paris, the Prime Minister met French President Emmanuel Macron in one-on-one and delegation level formats. The two leaders held discussions on the entire range of bilateral issues, including cooperation in defence, space, blue economy, civil nuclear and people-to-people ties.
They also took stock of the regional and global security outlook and discussed ways to work together in making the India- France Strategic Partnership a force for global good.
