Berlin: Prime Minister Narendra Modi met German Chancellor Angela Merkel during a brief stopover in Berlin after wrapping up his visit to the UK where he attended the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting and held a series of bilateral German Chancellor Angela Merkel meetings.
Modi on Friday night said he had a “wonderful meeting” with Merkel and discussed multiple aspects relating to bilateral cooperation as well as other global issues.
It was the third and last leg of Modi’s three-nation tour to the UK, Sweden and Germany.
The two leaders discussed ways to further strengthen India-Germany cooperation, Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said, adding that Modi’s visit demonstrates India’s mutual desire to strengthen the strategic partnership.
Modi’s meeting with Merkel comes after German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier’s trip to India last month which focused on boosting economic and strategic ties between the two countries.
Germany is India’s largest trade partner in the European Union bloc.
