I thank the President (Ram Nath Kovind) and Prime Minister (Narendra Modi) for this welcome.”He was welcomed by Modi, who greeted Macron with his customary hug. The French president said he established a personal rapport with Modi in Paris last year.”I think we have very good chemistry, our two great democracies have a historic relationship,” Macron said.He added that the visit would open a new era of strategic partnership between the two countries in the coming decades.“Our two democracies have common channels like terrorism, lots of common risks and common threats. But we have to protect this history and the state for freedom,” Macron added.During his India visit, Macron will also take part in a Town Hall meeting where around 300 students will be present.
