He ended his visit by signing agreements to further strengthen bilateral ties between both nations and also PM addressed the Indian community reception in Berlin.

On arrival, PM Modi received a warm welcome from the Indian community in Berlin and later from the German Chancellor Scholz himself. To me it’s a sign of the special quality of our relationship, said Chancellor Scholz, inviting PM Modi to visit Germany again for the upcoming G7 summit.

“India is a super partner for Germany in Asia in economic terms, security policy terms, and climate-political terms ,”German Chancellor Scholz said .

PM Modi landed in Berlin to a rapturous reception from the Indian diaspora. A girl named Manya made a pencil-sketch portrait of PM Modi and presented the special gift to the prime minister when he landed in Berlin. PM Modi also took out some time to connect with children as he sang a patriotic song Hey Janmabhoomi Bharat with a child. PM Modi listen song from his young Friend in Berlin :’Doesn’t my young friend sing well!’PM Modi said.

After the meet and greet, PM Modi headed for some serious stuff as he visited Chancellor Scholz for bilateral talks. This was their first engagement since Chancellor Scholz assumed office in December 2021. In a statement, the Ministry of External Affairs said that the discussions between the two leaders “covered key areas of bilateral cooperation under the overall strategic partnership, as well as regional and global developments.”

Following the one-on-one talks, both leaders sat down for the sixth round of Biennial Inter Governmental Consultations (IGC).

The talks with @Bundeskanzler Scholz were extensive and so were the Inter-Governmental Consultations. I got a great opportunity to interact with business and Indian community leaders. I thank the German Government for their hospitality”.
