Modi, French PM discuss strengthening strategic partnership

IANS  |  Dubai 

Indian Modi on Sunday met his French counterpart on the sidelines of the World Government Summit here and discussed ways to strengthen the bilateral strategic partnership.

"The two leaders had a good discussion on strengthening our strategic partnership," tweeted.

The India-relationship was elevated to that of a strategic partnership in 1998.

Last year, Modi visited and held his first meeting with French soon after he assumed office.

Macron is scheduled to visit next month for the inauguration of the India-initiated that was proposed by Modi along with then French at the 2015 climate summit.

"PM (Modi) said that he was looking forward to the visit of French Macron to next month," Kumar said.
