Speaker of Lok Sabha, the lower House of Indian Parliament, Mrs. Sumitra Mahajan Mahajan has emphasized the need for forging of closer cooperation between India and Latvia.

Observing that the traditionally close relations between the two democracies have grown steadily since Latvia’s Independence in 1991, Mrs. Mahajan said that there was great potential for forging of closer cooperation between India and Latvia.

Mahajan, who is leading an Indian Parliamentary Delegation to Latvia on Thursday, met Latvian Prime Minister Mr. Maris Kucinskis here.

During interaction with PM, Mrs Mahajan said that there were similarities in the political systems of India and Latvia, which bring the two countries together. She recalled that historic visit of Mr. Kucinskis to India in November 2017 and meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi had laid down a roadmap and vision to further deepen and take bilateral relations to the next stage.

Appreciating Latvia’s continued support to India at the United Nations and other multilateral fora, Mrs Mahajan said that Latvian support for India’s membership as a permanent member of the UN Security Council, membership of the NSG reflects the continued growth and strength of bilateral relations. Both Mrs. Mahajan and Mr. Maris Kucinskis emphasized the need for UN reforms and the Indian membership of the NSG.

She expressed concern that the current low volume of bilateral does not reflect the true potential that exists between the two countries in the area of trade and commerce, especially in logistics, etc. She urged the two countries to make all possible efforts to increase the trade.
