France to hold event focused on Indo-Pacific under its EU presidency
French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian announced this during an online discussion and extended an invite to External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar, who also took part in the event titled ''The French Presidency: EU-India Partnership in the Indo Pacific''.
Le Drian said it will be the first time that in the EU council presidency there will be an event focussed on the relations between the EU and the Indo-Pacific.
Le Drian hoped for Jaishankar and other partners to participate in the event and contribute to the peace and stability in the region.
''What I wish is for this Paris Forum to allow for the concretization of the principles we share with respect to rule of law, harmonious relations, and post-Covid recovery,'' he said. Le Drian said security and defense, connectivity and digital issues, and global challenges will be on the agenda of the Indo-Pacific ministerial meeting in Paris.
