Prime Minister Narendra Modi and newly-elected French President Emmanuel Macron on Saturday issued joint statement at Elysee Palace in Paris. PM Modi said that climate and terrorism are two big threats in front of humanity.
"Paris Agreement is joint legacy of the world and it is an article of faith for Indians," said PM Modi.
"Many Indian soldiers who died for our country, for its freedom, are very much evidence of strong bonds between our countries. France committed to fighting climate change and will continue, not only within framework of Paris accord also in actions we are implementing. I will be travelling to India by end of the year and we will convene a meeting of the world solar alliance," said French President Emmanuel Macron.
Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi met French President Emmanuel Macron and discussed issues of international and mutual interests including ways to enhance the strategic ties, countering terrorism and climate change.
