French President Emmanuel Macron and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi met in Italy on the sidelines of the G7 Summit when they reviewed India-France bilateral relations relationship between the two countries and focussed on the 'Horizon 2047' Roadmap and the Indo-Pacific Roadmap.

"Discussions included cooperation in defence, nuclear, space, education, climate action, digital public infrastructure, connectivity and cultural initiatives such as the National Museum partnership and enhancing people-to-people ties. They agreed to further intensify strategic defence cooperation with increased focus on ‘Make in India’," read a statement issued by the Ministry of External Affairs,

They also agreed to expand cooperation in the realms of AI, critical and emerging technologies, energy and sports, while working closely in context of the forthcoming AI Summit and United Nations Oceans Conference, both to be hosted in France in 2025.

Following his meeting, Modi posted on X: " Had an excellent meeting with my friend President @EmmanuelMacron. This is our fourth meeting in one year, indicating the priority we accord to strong India-French ties. Our talks covered numerous subjects such as defence, security, technology, AI, Blue Economy and more. We also discussed how to encourage innovation and research among the youth. I conveyed my best wishes to him on the hosting of the Paris Olympics, which begins next month."

The two leaders also exchanged views on key global and regional issues.

"They emphasized that a strong and trusted Strategic Partnership between India and France is crucial for a stable and prosperous global order and agreed to work closely to make it scale greater heights," the statement said,

Earlier in the day, Modi arrived in India to attend the G7 Summit.
