NSA Ajit Doval holds talks with French Def Min
New Delhi: National Security Advisor Ajit Doval and French Defence Minister Florence Parly held talks on Thursday to further boost bilateral defence and security cooperation, officials said.
The talks were focused on ways to enhance the overall strategic ties between the two countries, they said.
Earlier in the day, Parly attended a ceremony at the Ambala air force station where five French-made Rafale jets were formally inducted into the Indian Air Force.
After the ceremony, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and Parly held delegation-level talks.
In her brief address at the event, Parly said France is fully committed to integrate the Indian defence industry with France’s global military supply chain, while calling the induction of the Rafale jets into the IAF a new chapter in bilateral defence ties. (PTI)
