Referring to the recent India-EU leaders meeting, External Affairs Minister (EAM) S Jaishankar said on Wednesday that the last six months of India-EU relations have been remarkable in which trade and investment agreements were negotiated between the two sides. Various important decisions have been taken including restarting. The External Affairs Minister said this during a session at the Observer Research Foundation (ORF) on the future of India-EU relations.

In the presence of Portuguese Foreign Minister Augusto Santos Silva, External Affairs Minister Jaishankar said that our relations with the European Union have made remarkable progress in the last six months. The India-EU has crossed the threshold. A very important summit took place between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and all the leaders of the European Union. In this we took some important decisions. These decisions include the resumption of negotiations on a trade and investment agreement.

The External Affairs Minister said it was not a purely diplomatic decision. It took a lot of work to make such decisions. We reached a point where we felt confident to do so. The External Affairs Minister said that the EU has taken the Indo-Pacific approach very seriously. Today India and the EU are looking for a new level of relations. Shows a much more multipolar world.
