With an objective to prepare the upcoming visit of the French President Francois Hollande to India, scheduled for mid-February, Minister of External Affairs of India Salman Khurshid visited France on January 10 for a day-long visit.

This was the first visit by an Indian External Affairs Minister to France for nearly a decade and thus offered a rare opportunity for the two countries to discuss a wide range of issues of common interest to India and France.

During his – visit, Khurshid met his French counterpart Laurent Fabius and also
called upon President Hollande. In a press meet after his talks with Fabius, Khurshid said his visit was yet another reflection of the broadening bilateral engagement that characterizes our Strategic Partnership. “We reviewed our cooperation in defence, space and civil nuclear energy and counter terrorism, which are important pillars of our bilateral relations. Above all, there is a high degree of political understanding and convergence of views. This was evident during the meeting of our Prime Minister with President Hollande on the sidelines of the G-20 Summit in Los Cabos in Mexico in June 2012 which continued the tradition of regular and close contacts. We look forward to welcoming President Hollande to India in the near future,’’ he said.

Hollande is expected to visit India in mid-February and a number of bilateral
agreements are expected to be signed during this visit, which comes just over two years after that of his predecessor Nicolas Sarkozy. “It is a visit that we look forward and we want very productive. We have compiled a list of priority countries for India and in Europe, France is at the forefront,” Khurshid added.
