The two leaders also reviewed Brexit, its effects on both India and Germany as well as the future of the European Union (EU).


Asserting that Prime Minister Modi's trip to Spain was a short yet crucial one, Bagley said that Madrid felt elated in welcoming an Indian prime minister after three decades "It was a short trip".

He reiterated that his discussions with the Spanish Prime Minister would lead to enhanced ties between the two countries, while adding, "Spain and India should work in collaboration in all spheres".

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the first Indian prime minister to visit Spain since 1992, met the European country's top leaders and they stressed that states and entities which encourage, support, finance terrorism, provide sanctuary to terrorists and glorify terrorism should be subjected to worldwide laws including restrictive measures. Two-way trade totaled Dollars 5.27 billion in 2016. The countries will discuss the future of their economic ties in Russian Federation.

Indian authorities see the Arctic as another opportunity to cooperate with Russia, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi told Rossiyskaya Gazeta. "The resilience of our relationship is based on the fact that it rests on the principles of equality, trust and mutual benefit", Modi said.

A two-day visit to France will stretch over 2 and 3 June, wherein PM Modi will have a meeting with Mr. Emmanuel Macron, the newly appointed president of France.
