German Chancellor Scholz planning bilateral visit to India next year

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz is planning a bilateral visit to India next year, Philipp Ackermann, Germany’s envoy to India, said on Wednesday.

“I think it’s safe to say that Chancellor is planning a bilateral visit to India next year. We have to compare agendas,” Ackermann said at the press conference here.

Ackermann also responded when asked whether the Chancellor could come twice to India, one for the G20 summit and the other time for a bilateral meeting.

“The Prime Minister (Modi) came twice to Germany, why shouldn’t Chancellor come twice, India is a great place. I would even say come thrice to India,” Ackermann said.
