Prime Minister Modi's visit took place in connection with Prime Minister Frederiksen's official visit to India in October 2021. "It will be the first time in 20 years that an Indian prime minister has made an official visit to Denmark," the Royal House had said.
Modi also met his Danish counterpart Mette Frederiksen in the Danish capital and the two leaders held extensive discussions on the full range of bilateral cooperation as well as matters of regional and global interests. Modi, who arrived here from Germany on the second leg of his three-nation Europe trip, was welcomed by Frederiksen upon his arrival at Marienborg - the official residence of the Prime Minister of Denmark - for talks. As a special gesture, Frederiksen earlier received Modi at the airport. "Conversations in Copenhagen aimed at boosting friendship," the Prime Minister's Office tweeted.
The two leaders held talks in a one-on-one format, followed by delegation-level talks, Foreign Secretary Vinay Kwatra said.
