External Affairs Minister (EAM) Sushma Swaraj underscored that the mutual trust between India and France has deepened. “This year we are celebrating two decades of our strategic ties. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to France in April 2015 and June 2017 and the recent visit of French President Emmanuel Macron have boosted our ties. The mutual trust has deepened,” Sushma Swaraj, said while addressing media along with French Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs Jean-Yves Le Drian in Paris.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said on Tuesday that India and France are working to shape a strong development partnership, including in the fields of science and technology, clean energy and infrastructure. She said this as she met the country’s top leadership and discussed issues of mutual interest from a strategic perspective.

Sushma Swaraj, who arrived in Paris on Monday, is on a week-long four-nation visit to Italy, France, Luxembourg and Brussels. “India is one of our main partners in Asia and we have convinced Madam (EAM Sushma Swaraj) that France will become India’s one of the most important strategic partner in Europe,” Le Drian said.

Swaraj has also extended an invitation to Le Drian to visit India at a mutually convenient time so that dialogues and co-operation keep thriving between the two nations in future.
