A 15-billion-dollar deal for 126 Rafale fighter jets, made by France’s Dassault Aviation, is said to be in the final stage of negotiations.
areva-medusa1The negotiations for six nuclear reactors from French company Areva for the state-run Nuclear Power Corporation’s power plant in Jaitapur in western India was initiated in 2010.
That deal was delayed after both sides decided to review security issues following the Fukushima nuclear disaster and France sought to understand the implications of a tough nuclear liability and damages law passed by India in 2010.
Fabius is scheduled to meet his Indian counterpart Sushma Swaraj and Defence Minister Arun Jaitley on Monday, followed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday.
Fabius is the first top Western official to visit India after the Bharatiya Janata Party led by Modi won general elections that ended the decade-long rule of the Indian National Congress party-led alliance.
