Paris: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday held a bilateral meeting with US President Barack Obama on the sidelines of the Conference of Parties (CoP) 21 climate summit that got underway here.

PMO India tweeted along with a picture of the two leaders.

Earlier on Monday, Prime Minister Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif had a brief interaction here, days after the latter said that Islamabad was ready for an unconditional dialogue with India to resolve all unsorted issues.

It is not yet clear what all they discussed during their brief meeting in Paris.

Sharif had said, Pakistan wants sustainable peace and so his country was ready to hold talks with India without any preconditions.

PM Modi also held bilateral meetings with French President Francois Hollande, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

After inaugurating the India Pavilion at the summit, the Indian prime minister also attended a lunch hosted by Hollande for the visiting world leaders.

The UN climate change conference will conclude on December 11.

Congress helping those who want to weaken Army: Modi, wikimedia commons

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday accused the Congress of aiding those who he said want to weaken the Indian Army and raising questions over the government and even the Supreme Court over Rafale fighter jets.

“Today, there are two camps in the country. One is the government that is trying to strengthen our Army. The other wants to weaken our Army at any cost,” Modi said, flagging off the 900th coach of Modern Rail Factory and a Humsafar Rake in Rae Bareli, UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi’s Lok Sabha constituency.

“The country has been witnessing that the Congress stands by those powers who don’t want our armed forces to be strengthened,” he added, in an obvious reference to Sonia Gandhi’s son and Congress President Rahul Gandhi who has been accusing corruption in the Rafale jet deal with France.

The Prime Minister said the country was watching “such people” who he added were “getting support of countries pitted against India”.

“What is the reason that people in Pakistan clap when some of our leaders speak?”

The Prime Minister pointedly accused the Congress of raising questions over the dignity of the Defence Ministry, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, Air Force, France and the Supreme Court over the purchase of Rafale jet aircraft.

“Some people only accept lies and speak lies. For them the country’s Defence Ministry, Defence Minster and Air Force officers are liars. The French government is also a liar. Now, the country’s Supreme Court is also a liar for them.

“But truth does not need ‘shringaar’ and lies will always die. The country will never forgive the Congress over its attitude towards the Army.”

“What kind of people are they who do not care about the country? I know that they want to abuse Modi. They want to frame Modi for corruption. But I want to know why they have put the country’s pride at stake for this? Why is national security being put on stake?” (IANS)
