India and Denmark on Saturday firmed up a five-year action plan to implement their ambitious “green strategic partnership” and signed four agreements to deepen cooperation in green technologies following wide-ranging talks between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his visiting Danish counterpart Mette Frederiksen.
In the talks, India raised the issue of extradition of Kim Davy, the prime accused in the 1995 Purulia arms drop case, and it was agreed that the legal process in the matter must go forward.
“This matter was raised and we have an understanding that the legal process must go forward and both countries are working on it,” Secretary (West) in the Ministry of External Affairs Reenat Sandhu said at a media briefing.
Besides deliberating on a range of bilateral issues, the two prime ministers exchanged views on contemporary regional and global developments including the situation in Afghanistan and expressed their commitment to continuing support to the Afghan people.
The two sides underlined the need for “inclusivity, counter-terrorism guarantees and respect for human rights” in Afghanistan and the Danish delegation echoed India’s concerns about the situation in that country and the risk of terrorism that could emanate from there, Sandhu said.
Both sides were of the view that the global community should have a collective approach to Afghanistan, she said.
