Germany mum on ending boycott
His response came when asked to comment on Britain’s announcement on Thursday to resume engagement with Gujarat, ending a 10-year boycott of Chief Minister Narendra Modi, and whether Germany would follow suit.
Steiner also said Britain had informed Germany prior to the announcement of its decision.
The remarks were made at a discussion on Shashi Tharoor’s book Pax Indica.
Stenier said trade is beneficial for India and Germany and “it is in our interest to have companies who want to go and stay there for a longer time”.
Tharoor said India have a secular image but Modi sent out a “wrong” example to the outside world.
