Must Read

Last Tuesday, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said he spoke to President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday and conveyed India’s solidarity with France in dealing with the devastating wildfires. “Spoke to my friend President @EmmanuelMacron today” tweeted PM Modi. Both leaders also agreed to cooperate closely in responding to global challenges of food and energy security.

Modi conveyed India’s solidarity with France in dealing with the devastating wildfires. “We discussed ongoing bilateral cooperation under the India-France Strategic Partnership, and other issues of global and regional significance,” Modi tweeted.

“President @EmmanuelMacron and I also agreed to cooperate closely in responding to global challenges of food and energy security,” Modi added.

According to a statement by the Prime Minister’s Office of India, the leaders reviewed ongoing bilateral initiatives including defence cooperation projects and cooperation in civil nuclear energy.

“The two leaders expressed satisfaction at the depth and strength that the India-France Strategic Partnership has acquired in recent years and agreed to continue working closely together to expand the relationship to new areas of cooperation,” it stated.

France has been battling a “monster” wildfire that has forced thousands to flee their homes. Wildfires in Europe this summer have broken out as heat waves bake the continent and renew the focus on climate change.

Earlier in the day, Macron underlined to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky his concerns over risks to the country’s nuclear facilities, during a phone call between the two leaders, said the French presidency.
