He's a handsome fella isn't (s)he?
Not sure if it's exactly the species i've found - Rhinocoris iracundus - but am pretty sure that it's some type of Assassin Bug. If so your plants are not at risk. In fact ,they patrol your flowers looking for other tasty insects to eat. A wonderful biological pest control officer!!
With over 1 million different species of insects in the world, the chances of this insect from tropical India also occurring in either France or the USA is very close to zero - to get an identification, I'd reckon it will need to be taken to a museum or university in Mysore.

I hate to disagree. We have many new bug plagues here in Florida-one is called Sri Lankan weevil and also occurs in India;
Now we also have Erythrina gall wasp. Jet age has spread it from Africa, through India, Indonesia, to Hawaii and it first started on trees near the Miami international airport.
Fire ants, citrus root weevils, thread waisted wasp, citrus leaf miner, & mole crickets have found their way here. There are idiots that release exotic walking catfish, Melaleuca, Hydrilla, Brown anole, Cuban anole, pythons, lion fish, tarantulas and such intentionally.
