Amid the debate ongoing on the issue of Brexit, the European Union has expressed its priorities in terms of relations with India.
Tomasz Kozlowski, EU Ambassador to India, said that India is amongst the topmost agenda for the European Union (EU).
The bloc adopted a Joint Communication that sets out its vision for strengthening ties with New Delhi.
This Joint Communication replaces the last Commission Communication on India of 2004, recognising that India has emerged as the fastest-growing large economy and has acquired an important geopolitical role.
The Communication aims to strengthen the EU-India Strategic Partnership by focusing on sustainable modernization
and on common responses to global and regional issues.
As an emerging global power, India plays a key role in the current multipolar world.
The EU will seek to consolidate dialogue on multilateral issues and coordinate positions with India.
The EU will seek more coordination between its initiatives and those of its member states towards India.>
