Prime Minister Narendra Modi told French President Francois Hollande Sunday that India would “stand shoulder to shoulder” with France in the battle against terrorism.
Modi praised France’s response to the terror attacks in Paris in November 2015, saying he had decided that very day to invite Hollande to India.
“France has shown the way to combat terrorism without deviating from its principles and journey of progress,” Modi said, adding that the country deserves credit for going ahead with the COP21 conference during what was a difficult period for it.
Modi was speaking at the specially organised India-France business Summit here in the first leg of the French President’s India visit.

Hollande said issues of security affected both the countries and they would share efforts to combat terrorism.
With defence and security ties being a core issue during the visit, the French president also said that France was interested in making available military equipment to India. He also made a pitch for stronger civil-nuclear military deal between India and France.
The PM, who was accompanied by National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, said defence issues are no longer about weapons alone and that cyber security is also a threat to be seriously contended with.
