India and The Netherlands today decided to set up a joint working group on counter terrorism.

The two countries set a road map for their cooperation in diverse fields –including infrastructure, investments, agriculture and renewable energy.

During talks between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his counterpart from The Netherlands Mark Rutte, the visiting leader expressed support for the ambitious ‘Make in India’ programme.

Modi also announced e-visas for tourists from The Netherlands.

At a joint media interaction later, Modi described the talks as “comprehensive and productive” and said that they had discussed bilateral relations as well as global and regional issues of mutual interest.

We have agreed to set up a Joint Working Group on Counter Terrorism, which will hold its first meeting on June 19,
– Narendra Modi, Prime Minister

He claimed that both the countries would stand to benefit from closer bilateral and multilateral collaboration. This included areas such as countering terrorism and extremism, defence, maritime security and cyber security.

Rutte, while describing the two countries as close economic partners, said the trade between them now stands at 6 billion euros and growing everyday.

These are impressive numbers but we need to step up and do more and still there are many areas where we can work more closely.
– Mark Rutte, Prime Minister of The Netherlands
