Greek PM Asks India to Build Ties      02/21 06:14


   NEW DELHI (AP) -- Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Wednesday 
asked India to play a leading role in building international partnerships to 
meet the unprecedented challenges brought by the wars in Ukraine and the Middle 
East and changes in climate and energy security.

   "We view India as one of the main pillars of stability and security in the 
Indo-Pacific region," Mitsotakis said after his talks with Indian Prime 
Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi.

   Modi told reporters that India and Greece agreed to boost ties in the 
defense, pharmaceutical, space and shipping sectors as they seek to double 
their bilateral trade by 2030 from nearly $2 billion in 2022-23.

   Modi also said the two countries set up a working group to cooperate in the 
fields of cybersecurity, counterterrorism and maritime security. He added that 
new opportunities are arising in India in defense manufacturing and that the 
two countries agreed to cooperate in this key sector but did not give details.

   Mistotakis, who arrived in India on Tuesday, will also visit Mumbai, India's 
financial and entertainment hub, on Thursday. He is accompanied by a large 
business delegation. He said Greece and India are investing in renewable 
energy, infrastructure, ports and shipping.

   India mainly exports aluminum, organic chemicals, and iron and steel to 
Greece, whose exports to India include minerals, mineral oils, sulfur, aluminum 
foil, electrical machinery and equipment and building stones.
