India and France are already good allies of each other because India got its Rafael fighter jets from France. Several pacts are being signed between the two. PM Modi and President Macron have met each other on different occasions. France and India will together work on a program that will emphasize “a truly multilateral international order”, as per the statement of the French foreign ministry.

On a call Jean-Yves Le Drian and Dr. S Jaishankar agreed on strengthening their strategic partnership, the ministry further said in a statement, “based on a relationship of political trust between two great sovereign nations of the Indo-Pacific.”
