Proud to welcome India as our Guest of Honour at Bastille Day Parade: French President Macron

Paris: Calling India a ‘giant’ in world history and a strategic partner, French President Emmanuel Macron welcomed the country as the Guest of Honour at the Bastille Day Parade.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended the military parade on France National Day as the Guest of Honour.
Taking to Twitter, President Macron tweeted, “A giant in world history, with a decisive role to play in the future, a strategic partner, a friend. We are proud to welcome India as our guest of honour at the 14 July parade”.
The Bastille Day Parade took place under bright and sunny skies at Champs-Élysées in Paris.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi took the ceremonial salute from the Indian contingent as they marched at the Champs-Elysees.
French President Emmanuel Macron, First Lady Brigitte Macron, topped the dignitaries attending the Bastille Day Military Parade on Friday.

The French fighters, which led the flypast, left a trail of smoke in the colours of the French national flag — red, blue and white, leaving the skies of Champs-Elysees bathing in its afterglow.
Both the Indian and French troops marched with trumpets and drums.
Macron received the Guard of Honour upon his arrival ahead of the military parade.
Champs-Élysées was gilded in the colours of the French Flag.
This year also marks the 25th anniversary of the strategic partnership between the two countries.
The Bastille Day Parade is the highlight of celebrations of the day that marks the anniversary of the storming of the Bastille prison, an ancient royal fortress in 1789 during the French Revolution.
This year the Bastille Day Parade had 6,300 soldiers in various marching contingents. This included a tri-services contingent of the Indian Army, Navy and Air Force. The Indian Army was represented by the Punjab Regiment. The troops of the Regiment have participated in both World Wars, having been awarded 18 Battle and Theatre Honours in the first war.
The Punjab Regiment participated in an offensive near Neuve Chapelle in France in September 1915 during World War One. The regiment also won 16 Battle Honours and 14 Theatre Honours in the Second World War.
In a moment to savour for India, the IAF Rafales streaked the skies over Champs-Elysees, leaving the audience in awe.
