PM Modi meets Austrian Chancellor on sidelines of SPIEF

During his tour to Spain, Prime Minister Modi held talks with Spanish President Mariano Rajoy in Madrid.

"70 years of diplomatic relations between the two countries have been marked by a high degree of convergence on various bilateral and global matters", said the Prime Minister. He said the whole world must realise that this is an issue that concerns humanity and only then terrorism be curbed. Terming France as India's important strategic partner, PM Modi had earlier said, "I look forward to meeting President Macron and have discussions on issues of mutual interest".

'Russian-Indian economic cooperation is returning to a growth trajectory, ' said Putin adding that improving the trade structure and expansion of cooperation in the industrial sector is their key priority.




Trump said, according to the Paris Climate deal terms, China will be allowed many coal plants, and India will be allowed to double its coal production by 2020, but not the U.S. "In this context, Russian Federation welcomes India's application for the membership in Nuclear's Suppliers Group and the Wassenaar Arrangement and reiterates its strong support for India's earliest admission to these control regimes", the declaration said.

"In the last 40 years, there has been a border dispute between India and China but not even a single bullet has been fired (between the two sides)", Modi said at the St Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) in reply to a question about India's proximity to Russian Federation and its differences with China. This is not just for the domestic programmes but also for global cooperation. He welcomed President Putin's assertion yesterday that he will raise the matter at the United Nations. But both sides have set a target of $30 billion by 2025.

Prime Minister Modi announced that a road in Delhi has been renamed after Ambassador Alexander Kadakin, whom he described as a friend of India, who passed away recently. (But) there is no other country in the world that we have such deep cooperation in delicate areas such as missiles, and we benefit with cooperation with India.
