Prime Minister Modi will visit Copenhagen after Germany at the invitation of Danish Prime Minister Matt Frederiksen, where he will participate in the second India-Nordic Summit. Before returning to India on May 4, Modi will meet President-elect Emmanuel Macron in France for the second time. Modi will be among the first leaders to meet Macron after his election victory.

This visit of PM Modi to Europe is also considered important in the sense that Europe has been continuously asking India to reduce its dependence on Russia. Apart from this, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said that he has no objection if India mediates in stopping the Russo-Ukraine war. In such a situation, the PM can also discuss with these three countries to solve the crisis.
