German Foreign Minister in New Delhi for bilateral talks
Indian Minister S Jaishankar welcomed visiting German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock, who began her two-day India visit today. During her visit, she will be discussing cooperation on the transition to renewable energy and India's relationship with Russia and China.
"A warm welcome to German Foreign Minister @ABaerbock as she arrives in New Delhi on her first official visit. An opportunity to exchange views on regional and global developments and review the progress achieved in the India-Germany Strategic Partnership," Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said in a tweet.
During the two-day inaugural visit, cooperation in the energy transition away from oil, coal and gas will also play a role. She will also be discussing cooperation on the transition to renewable energy and India's relationship with Russia and China.
"The clearer positioning of the G20 against the Russian war of aggression in Ukraine is ultimately also thanks to India.
"As an emerging economic power and a solid democracy, India is both a role model and a bridge for many countries in the world, despite all the internal social challenges. And a natural partner of Germany," she added.
