Accepting an invitation from Prime Minister Narendra Modi, new French President Emmanuel Macron on Saturday said that he will be visiting India by the end of this year.

"The protection of the environment and the mother planet is an article of faith", Mr Modi said at a joint news conference with Mr Macron in Paris.

"We are both convinced that our countries have to do a lot for the ecological and environmental transition and the fight against global warming", Mr Macron said, adding that France would go above and beyond its Paris agreement commitments.
