French President Emmanuel Macron offered France’s support to the people of Sri Lanka following the attacks which claimed the lives of at least 321 people in the Asian country on Easter Sunday, as he welcomed Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Paris on Tuesday.

“As the death toll continues to rise, I would like to say that France is in full solidarity with the authorities, the country, the whole nation and will be at the disposal of the Sri Lankan authorities to provide all necessary support. Once more we express our sadness and our affection towards the families and friends of all victims, coming from many countries including Japan”, he stated.

The two leaders held a meeting at the Elysee Palace to discuss cooperation and trade, ahead of a G20 summit scheduled in June.

Abe, who is presiding over the G20 meeting, said he hoped to discuss more in detail about the two countries’ bilateral cooperation, free trade, economic growth and women empowerment.
