On his part, Swedish Prime Minister Lofven lauded India as "global power" and said the two countries are a "perfect match". Addressing the media, Narendra Modi called India-Sweden partnership as "a ideal match" signalling that an "intensified political and business interaction" will take place between India and Sweden.
From Sweden, PM Modi will on Tuesday night travel to the United Kingdom where he will attend the CHOGM, besides holding bilateral talks with his British counterpart Theresa May. India and Sweden will also jointly organise the India-Nordic Summit in Stockholm on Wednesday. "India and Sweden will work on a security agreement". The rise of India in past four years is incomparable to that in 15 years.
The two prime ministers will hold bilateral talks on Tuesday. "The European Union is more sensitive to the issue now, which gives us an opportunity to sensitise them about the threat of terrorism and violent extremism, and how these groups are active in our neighborhood, particularly in South Asia", she said.
"I believe that the most important topic in our talks today was how Sweden can have a win-win partnership with India on the opportunities arising out of India's development".
"Prime Minister Modi and the Finnish PM are meeting after nearly two years". We will engage with them in a similar manner, and examine how they can help our missions like Make in India, Skill India, Startup India and Smart Cities programmes.
