It was with deep grief that we learnt of the demise of former Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

France offers its condolences to his family as well as the Indian authorities and people.

Poet, politician, visionary, he left his mark on India’s history. His name remains linked to the Indo-French friendship, which he shaped by launching the strategic partnership that has united our two countries since 1998.
