In his address on the topic ‘France and India: partners in a stable and prosperous Indo-Pacific’ organized by the Vivekananda International Foundation (VIF), he said that France is part of the Quad (a group of US, Japan, Australia, and India) Is close and may also do some naval exercises with them in the future.
The French Navy does not patrol in Taiwan – it is the only European navy that patrols Taiwan, not the provocation, but to emphasize the need to follow international regulations. Is for Bone said, “We do not want to escalate the confrontation and I think it is easier to say than Paris than Delhi, that too when you have a problem in the Himalayan region and your border is with Pakistan”

Whether it is Kashmir, we have been a strong supporter of India in the Security Council, we did not let China play any kind of procedural game. When it comes to the Himalayan regions, you should check our statements, we have been completely clear. There is no ambiguity in what we say publicly. ‘
