Prime Minister Narendra Modi returned home on Thursday after concluding his three-nation European tour – to Germany, Denmark and France.
In what was his first visit abroad in 2022, the Prime Minister held a series of bilateral meetings to boost ties in a range of areas including trade, energy and green technology.
We’ve spoken about his visit to Germany earlier. Today we will focus on the last leg of the PM’s tour to France.
On his way back from the 2nd India-Nordic Summit in Copenhagen, the Prime Minister paid a visit to France, where he met French President Emmanuel Macron in one-on-one and delegation level formats.
The two leaders held discussions on the entire range of bilateral issues. They also took stock of the regional and global security outlook and discussed ways to work together in making the India- France Strategic Partnership a force for global good.
On this edition of the programme, we will analyse some of the key highlights from the Prime Minister’s visit to France….the India-France relations and how this visit has added momentum to the India-France relations.
