Netherlands backs India's UNSC and NSG bids

Ellis Copeland | 28 June, 2017, 03:52

"Ties between India and the Netherlands are very old". But it was the same folksy, effusive greeting Modi has used with Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama, and a host of foreign dignitaries and celebrities, from former French President Francois Hollande, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Hollywood's Hugh Jackman.

Emphasising on the importance of the Indian Diaspora in The Netherlands, Modi said they are the living links and living bridge between the two countries.

U.S. President Donald Trump and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi embrace while delivering joint statements in the Rose Garden of the White House June 26, 2017 in Washington, DC.

The Netherlands expressed its support for India's early membership to the 48-member NSG and the Wassenaar Arrangement.

Last year, U.S. trade with India totaled an estimated US$114.8 billion and U.S. trade deficit with India was US$30.8 billion dollars, according to U.S. official figures.

The Prime Ministers reiterated that India and the Netherlands share common values of democracy, pluralism, respect for human rights and rule of law.

Prime Minister Rutte appreciated the lead taken by India to galvanise global action on Climate Change through the initiative and declared that the Netherlands would consider the invitation positively. Our bilateral relations are very strong", he said, adding, "Netherlands is a natural partner in the economic development of India.

Both leaders resolved to continue their efforts to strengthen global non-proliferation objectives, a joint communique issued after a meeting between the two leaders said.

The fact that first lady Melania Trump was on hand, even though Modi was traveling without his wife, "was an important signal for India", Dogra said.

He said Europe is India's biggest trading partner and 20 per cent of India's export to Europe enters through the Netherlands. "We held talks on the wide range of issues pertaining to India-US relationships".

The Dutch premier said the ties is only expected to grow in coming years.

This year, the two countries are celebrating 70 years of the establishment of Indo-Dutch diplomatic relations.
