The Asian Age - - Nation -

Ex­ter­nal Af­fairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Satur­day held wide rang­ing talks with her coun­ter­part from Ice­land Guo­lau­gur Thor on ways to deepen bi­lat­eral ties in ar­eas of trade, in­vest­ment and en­ergy.

Mr Thor ar­rived here on Fri­day on board the in­au­gu­ral flight be­tween New Delhi and Reyk­javik, the cap­i­tal of Ice­land.

At the meeting, Ms Swaraj said, Ice­land was a world leader in geo­ther­mal en­ergy and co­op­er­a­tion in this sec­tor could ben­e­fit In­dia’s tran­si­tion to green en­ergy and help it in achiev­ing its re­new­able en­ergy tar­gets, said MEA spokesper­son Raveesh Ku­mar. In­dia’s ties with Ice­land have wit­nessed steady progress in the last few years.
