Former French president Sarkozy to meet Modi

Former French President will visit India on April 13 and hold a meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

This follows up on their first meeting in Paris in April 2015, according to a statement issued by the French embassy here.

It said Sarkozy will also have meetings with External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh besides paying tribute to the Mahatma at Gandhi Smriti during his stay in Delhi.

The visit comes in the wake of the terror attacks in Paris in November last year that left 130 people dead.

During his presidency from May 2007 to May 2012, Sarkozy came twice on bilateral visits to India, including as the chief guest for the Republic Day parade in 2008.

Sarkozy will interact with business representatives at a conference organised by the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (Ficci), in partnership with the Indo-French Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Ifcci) in the morning of April 13.
