The eyes of every country remain on the issue of ongoing tension between India and China. French Defense Minister Florence Parle wrote a letter to Defense Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday about this tension. France paid tribute to the 20 soldiers martyred in the skirmish in the Galvan Valley and talked about being with India in this difficult time.
Losing 20 soldiers is a big blow
French Defense Minister Florence wrote that losing 20 soldiers is a big blow, not only to the family but to the whole country and in this difficult time, we give our support on behalf of the French army. Apart from this, she also said to meet Defense Minister Rajnath Singh in India soon, in which existing discussions can be carried forward.
Let us tell you that France has come as an important partner of India in the ongoing dispute with China, because the delivery of the Rafale fighter aircraft due to Corona crisis was braced, now France has asked to deliver them as soon as possible.
In the first installment, 6 Rafale aircraft will be delivered to India
Not only this, four Rafale aircraft were to be delivered to India in the first installment, but given the current situation, now in the first installment, 6 Rafale aircraft will be delivered to India, which will reach India by the end of July. Defense Minister Rajnath Singh received them in France last year, after which Indian Air Force pilots were taking training to command these aircraft.
Now by July 22, India will get 6 fighter aircraft, which will be equipped with modern technology. These aircraft will be deployed near the Ambala airbase, so that they can be used immediately if needed on the northern front. In the current era, according to the situation with China on the Ladakh border, it can be very beneficial for India to get Rafale.
Let us tell you that before the Defense Minister of France, the heads of many other countries and big leaders have supported India on the China dispute. Today, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh will talk to the US Secretary of Defense on this issue over phone and the latest situation will be discussed.
