New Delhi: The Danish Prime Minister, Mette Frederiksen had bilateral talks with the Indian PM Narendra Modi, in addition to interacting with think tanks, students, and members of civil society. The Danish PM is now in India to discuss details about the ‘Green Strategic Partnership’. Frederiksen reached Rashtrapati Bhawan in New Delhi, India, where she was welcomed by PM Modi.
“We consider India as a close partner. I see this visit as a milestone for Denmark-India bilateral relations,” the Danish PM said on Saturday morning. “Last year I and PM Modi signed and agree on a green strategic partnership. We see an ambitious Indian government to take great responsibility when it comes to green transition in India and the rest of the world,” she said. She also paid tributes to Mahatma Gandhi at Rajghat.
Frederiksen is on a three-day visit to India, becoming the first head of government to visit New Delhi in over 20 months. Her visit comes after India’s Minister of external affairs S Jaishankar visited Denmark at the beginning of this year.
Earlier in September 2020, the two countries had held a virtual summit on the topic as the two sides want to work together on green growth by focusing on an ambitious implementation of the Paris Agreement and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
