Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday strongly pitched for resumption of talks on a Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty and other instruments to combat the common challenge of terrorism during his talks with Belgian premier Charles Michel. This days after a series of terror attacks in the Belgian capital that left over 30 people dead.

During the talks, the two leaders covered whole spectrum of bilateral ties.

Modi, who is on a day-long visit, invited Belgian government and companies to pro-actively associate with India’s ambitious projects including ‘Digital India’, ‘Start Up India’ and ‘Skill India’, asserting that combination of Belgian capacities and India’s economic growth can produce promising opportunities for businesses on both sides.

Ahead of his talks, Modi laid a wreath of white flowers at the Maalbeek Metro station in the Belgian capital where a suicide bomber blew himself up killing scores of passengers, including Raghavendran Ganeshan, an Infosys employee from Bengaluru.
