Europe must play lead role in combating terrorism: Modi

GERMANY-SERBIA-DIPLOMACY

On Tuesday, Modi will travel to Spain for an official visit, the first by an Indian prime minister in nearly three decades.

"The bonds of a fruitful partnership".

In the 32nd episode of the monthly programme, Prime Minister Modi said he had not thought it would be viewed politically when he launched the programme more than two years back (on Gandhi Jayanti (October 2) 2014).

In an interview to German newspaper "Handelsblatt", he pointed out, "Europe has been hit hard by terrorism". To our mind, terrorism is the gravest challenge facing humanity. "We expect German Chancellor Merkel to stand in favour of Kashmiris like she outrageously supported millions of Syrian refugees", Kiyani added.

I will also meet top CEOs of Spanish industry and encourage them to partner with us in our "Make in India" Initiative.

Mentioning about environment and cleanliness, he said the central government, with the help of state governments and people's representatives, will launch a major campaign for waste management from June 5, the World Environment Day.

In a tweet he said, this visit will lead to beneficial outcome and deepen India-Germany friendship.Earlier in a pre departure message also, Mr.Modi hoped that this visit would open a new chapter in bilateral relation with Germany and further deepen strategic partnership.

"India values its strong and multi-faceted relationship with both the United Kingdom and the European Union and is committed to further strengthening its ties with both the strategic partners".

"I feel that as our "Selfie with Daughter" campaign proved to be a very inspiring experience, this campaign of posting pictures of three generations performing yoga together will evoke curiosity across the nation as well as the world". "Our expectation is that G20 would be able to enhance global growth", he noted.

Prime Minister Modi and the German Chancellor will attend the fourth biennial Inter-Governmental Consultations (IGC) plenary meeting at International Conference Room at Chancellery.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the nation through his latest edition of Mann Ki Baat programme.

Modi said he and Merkel will "chart out a future roadmap of cooperation with focus on trade and investment, security and counter-terrorism, innovation and science and technology, skill development, urban infrastructure, railways and civil aviation, clean energy, development cooperation, health and alternative medicine".
