New Delhi: Energy security will be among key areas of discussion during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s three-day visit to Germany, Denmark and France, Foreign Secretary Vinay Mohan Kwatra said Sunday.
Modi begins his visit to the three countries Monday.
At a media briefing, Kwatra said the overall focus of the talks will be to broaden the bilateral engagement but noted that the situation in Ukraine is set to come up in his talks.
The foreign secretary said energy security has assumed greater significance in the backdrop of the current geopolitical developments and the issue will figure in Modi’s talks with European leaders.
About the conflict in Ukraine, Kwatra said India always maintained that there should be cessation of hostilities in that country and the crisis should be resolved through dialogue.
