The two leaders held talks in a one-on-one format, followed by delegation-level talks, an official statement said.

Both the Prime Ministers reviewed progress of the India-Denmark Green Strategic Partnership. Discussions also covered cooperation in renewable energy, especially offshore wind energy and green hydrogen, as well as skill development, health, shipping, water, and the Arctic, among others.

The two shared convergence of interest on the importance of climate action, green growth and energy diversification.

“The independence of energy supply based on fossil fuel is vital in this regard as well as security policy.

The two leaders appreciated the progress in restart of negotiations on the India-EU Trade, Investment and Geographical Indicators Agreements and called for a balanced, ambitious, comprehensive and mutually beneficial approach and an early and simultaneous conclusion. They welcomed the launch of the Trade and Technology Council between EU and India underlining the importance of deep, strategic collaboration on cross-cutting issues related to trade, trusted technology and security.

The two leaders also recalled the India-EU Connectivity Partnership and agreed to support efforts towards its early implementation.

They reaffirmed their commitment to a rules-based international order, and a strengthened and reformed multilateral system.

They also confirmed their commitment to work towards reforming the UN, including the UN Security Council, to make it more effective, transparent and accountable.
