Baltic News Network - - News -

In­dian For­eign Af­fairs Min­is­ter Mobashar Jawed Ak­bar em­pha­sized dur­ing his meet­ing with Lat­vian For­eign Af­fairs Min­is­ter Edgars Rinke­vics that In­dia has ex­pe­ri­enced very rapid eco­nomic growth in the past year. He added that the up­com­ing Lat­vian-In­dian busi­ness fo­rum will be an im­por­tant step to­wards closer co­op­er­a­tion in econ­omy.

In their con­ver­sa­tion, Rinke­vics com­ple­mented the devel­op­ment of re­la­tions be­tween Latvia and In­dia. He also em­pha­sized the need to con­tinue high-level visa ex­change. The po­ten­tial on in­for­ma­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion tech­nolo­gies, trans­port and lo­gis­tics was es­pe­cially noted in re­gards to im­prove­ment of eco­nomic co­op­er­a­tion, as men­tioned in For­eign Af­fairs Min­istry’s re­port.

The grow­ing in­ter­est of In­dian youth to­wards higher ed­u­ca­tion op­por­tu­ni­ties in Latvia was also men­tioned – 750 young­sters from In­dia com­menced stud­ies in Latvia this year.

Mobashar Jawed Ak­bar said co­op­er­a­tion in ed­u­ca­tion and sci­ence is grounds for closer in­ter-gov­ern­men­tal re­la­tions.

The two min­is­ters also dis­cussed mat­ters associated with co­op­er­a­tion in in­ter­na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tions. Of­fi­cials also con­demned the vi­o­lence com­mit­ted by in­ter­na­tional ter­ror­ists, es­pe­cially after the re­cent ter­ror at­tack in Manch­ester.

Speak­ing of co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the EU and In­dia, Rinke­vics said he hopes talks be­tween the two sides about the free trade agree­ment will re­cover soon. In­dian min­is­ter said his coun­try is in­ter­ested in closer re­la­tions with EU.
