India-EU summit likely by end of 2015

The next summit between the European Union and India is expected to be held by the end of this year after a gap of nearly three years, according to EU and Indian officials, the media has reported.

Manjeev Singh Puri, Ambassador of India to the EU, Belgium and Luxembourg, speaking at an event on EU-India ties in Brussels this week said, “We hope we will be able to put together the big event that we believe can kickstart at the highest political level before the year is over.”

“There are conversations going on that. Politics has an important role to play. It has a leadership thrust ability, it has the ability to push things forward,” he noted.

“But I believe that business on the other hand is that engine which results in political leaders and everyone else also looking to move things forward,” he stated.

Lok Sabha, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, will be leading a large parliamentary delegation to Brussels next week to strengthen bilateral parliamentary ties, Puri said.

On his part, Zoran Stancic, European Commission Deputy Director-General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology , said he “fully agrees that the long due summit could be a good opportunity where our political masters get together.” (SH)
