India and Germany are keen on deepening their bilateral relations and leaders of both the nations are likely to make several visits in this regard, said Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin on Sunday.
While Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to visit Germany early in 2015, India can expect two visits from Germany, said Akbaruddin.
The first bilateral meet between PM Modi and German Chancellor Angela Merkel took place earlier today ahead of the G20 Summit. Merkel raised the issue of German being scrapped in Kendriya Vidyalaya schools with Modi, to which the PM replied that he was in favour of Indian children learning other languages.
“Germany said it would be grateful if India could implement a system where children could learn German,” Akbaruddin said.
Stating that India’s performance at G20 Summit was successful, the MEA said that central government’s Jan Dhan Yojana was appreciated by the world leaders.
Union Railways Minister and PM’s Sherpa Suresh Prabhu added that the black money issued raised by India was echoed by several other nations.
