Modi shakes hands with Emmanuel Macron

On the margins of the G20 summit conference, Mr. Modi met with French President Emmanuel Macron, and the two leaders had “constructive discussions” on a range of matters of mutual and global importance.

During his meeting with Mr. Macron, Mr. Modi was accompanied by National Security Advisor Ajit Doval and External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar, who had been invited by his Italian colleague Mario Draghi.

“On the sidelines of the @g20org Summit, PM @narendramodi and President @EmmanuelMacron had fruitful discussions. India and France collaborate closely in a variety of fields. The Prime Minister’s Office stated, “Today’s talks will add momentum to bilateral ties between the two nations.”

The gathering

The encounter comes more than a month after the two leaders spoke on the phone, despite Paris’ harsh criticism of the AUKUS (Australia-United Kingdom-United States) security collaboration.

The two leaders promised to “operate collaboratively” in the Indo-Pacific during their telephone chat last month to keep the region stable, rules-based, and free of hegemony.

The two had discussed the growing bilateral cooperation in the Indo-Pacific area at the time, as well as the critical role that the India-France partnership plays in fostering regional peace and security.

They had promised to hold monthly meetings to coordinate ahead of upcoming events, such as the G20 and the COP26 on climate change, as well as to continue their combined efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
