"In phone call with PM @NarendraModi, Prez @EmmanuelMacron highlighted that France would continue to stand by India to fight the pandemic together, with more support underway. The two leaders discussed how to bolster multilateral action against the virus," tweeted Emmanuel Lenain, Ambassador of France to India.
