Sushma Swaraj Speaks To French Counterpart

By Preeti Sigh On 16 Mar, 2019

French Foreign Minister Le Drian Friday held a telephonic conversation with External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and informed her about France imposing sanctions on JeM chief Masood Azhar by freezing his assets. The External Affairs Ministry said that Mr Drian informed Ms Swaraj about the action taken by Paris against the leader of the Jaish-e-Mohammed, which had claimed responsibility for the Pulwama attack. France sanctioned Masood Azhar at the national level by freezing his assets, the MEA said, days after China blocked a move to designate him as a global terrorist by the United Nations. The MEA said the French foreign minister also informed Ms Swaraj that France has raised the issue with the European Union. "He reiterated that France has always been and will always be on India side in the fight against terrorism," the MEA said.
