PARIS (Reuters) – France, India and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) announced on Saturday the launch of a trilateral cooperation initiative in several areas, including energy and the fight against climate change.

This announcement materializes a commitment made by the Ministers of Foreign Affairs during a meeting on September 19 on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

In a joint statement, Paris, Abu Dhabi and Delhi say they are “wishing to jointly promote international stability and prosperity and to deepen the ties that already unite the three countries”, particularly in the Indian Ocean.

During a telephone interview on Saturday, the three ministers undertook to “adopt a roadmap to implement this initiative”.

They promised to cooperate “in the field of energy, in particular solar and nuclear, as well as to combat climate change and protect biodiversity, particularly in the Indian Ocean region”, the statement said.
