    In a telephone call with Trump yesterday, the French leader expressed his "deep concerns" over the measures, saying that while he shared Trump's concern over unfair trade practises the tariffs due to come into effect in two weeks "risk triggering a trade war, in which all affected countries would be losers".

    French President Emmanuel Macron arrived in New Delhi on Friday on a four-day India visit and was received at the airport by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in a special gesture.

    Macron was accompanied by his wife Brigitte Marie-Claude Macron, besides senior ministers from his Cabinet. During the visit, the two countries would look to boost ties, especially in the areas of maritime security and counter-terrorism.
