Relations between India and Germany: The statements of German Chancellor Angela Merkel come only days before Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the country.
According to Dr Tobias Lindner, Minister of State at the German Federal Foreign Office, no major global crisis can be solved without India’s participation, and the country is an important partner of the German government.
In an interview with ANI on the sidelines of an event, he stated that India and Germany will increase their cooperation in areas such as technology, education, security, and environmental protection.
“We would like to collaborate with India in areas such as technology, education, security, and climate change. There is no big problem that can be solved without India’s involvement. India is such a vital partner. Looking forward to the development of relations between Germany and India, “Linder said himself.
The statements of the German leader came just a few days before Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the country is set to begin.
In addition to Germany, the Prime Minister will also travel to Denmark and France on his first foreign trip of the year, which will take place from May 2 to 4.
On his visit to Berlin, Prime Minister Modi will conduct bilateral discussions with Olaf Scholz, the Federal Chancellor of Germany, and the two leaders will co-chair the sixth edition of the India-Germany Inter-Governmental Consultations (IGC).
The biennial IGC is a one-of-a-kind conversation format in which numerous ministers from both sides take part, making it a really unique event. This will be the Prime Minister’s first IGC with Chancellor Scholz, as well as the first such government-to-government discussions of the incoming German administration, which will take office in December 2021 and will be in its first year in office.
Chancellor Scholz and Prime Minister Scholz would also deliver a joint speech at a Business Event during their visit. In addition, the Prime Minister will address and meet with members of the Indian community in Germany.
