Berlin: Prime Minister Narendra Modi was on Monday received by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz at the Federal Chancellery where he was accorded a ceremonial welcome.

Later, the two leaders sat down for a tete-a-tete before heading for the sixth Inter-Governmental Consultations. Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Arindam Bagchi, in tweets, said: “PM @narendramodi was received by @Bundeskanzler Olaf Scholz in a ceremonial welcome at the Federal Chancellery in Berlin."

“Leaders will hold bilateral discussions followed by the 6th Inter-Governmental Consultations (IGC)," he said.

On the talks between the two leaders, he posted: “A quick tête-à-tête between the two leaders PM @narendramodi and @Bundeskanzler Olaf Scholz before the IGC commences.”

This is the first meeting between PM Modi and Olaf Scholz, after the latter became Chancellor in December.

The two had met at the G20 in October last year in Rome, when Scholz was Vice-Chancellor and Finance Minister of Germany.

After the IGC meeting, the two leaders will jointly address a Business Event. PM Modi will also address and interact with the Indian community in Germany.

This is PM Modi's 5th visit to Germany.

His previous visits were in April 2018, July 2017, May 2017 and April 2015.

Earlier, he arrived in Berlin to a warm welcome from the Indian community.
