Narendra Modi

Following Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to France on July 13 and 14, the two nations agreed to expand collaboration in areas such as defence and laid out a plan for the next 25 years of India-France ties. We talked about the bigger ramifications of the visit with Professor Gulshan Sachdeva of Jawaharlal Nehru University’s Centre for European Studies in New Delhi.

This visit commemorates the 25th anniversary of India and France’s strategic cooperation. PM Modi praised the two countries’ ties as “excellent shape,” saying they are “strong, trusted, and consistent.”
