Dur­ing In­dian Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi’s visit to Swe­den from 16 April, a num­ber of de­fence and se­cu­rity co­op­er­a­tion mat­ters were re­port­edly dis­cussed, with a strate­gic in­no­va­tion part­ner­ship plan an­nounced. PM Modi had sev­eral meet­ings with his Swedish coun­ter­part Ste­fan Lofven, the me­dia re­port­ing a “win-win” out­come, it be­ing noted that de­fence and se­cu­rity co­op­er­a­tion re­mained a “key pil­lar” in the bi­lat­eral ties. The In­dian PM has in­vited top Swedish firms to in­vest in In­dia which is “a very strate­gic mar­ket”. Although, there was no of­fi­cial word on Swe­den’s in­ter­est in of­fer­ing the Gripen mul­ti­role fighter to meet the In­dian Air Force’s re­quire­ment, this mat­ter was re­port­edly part of the discussions.
