NEW DELHI: Spanish Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Albares Bueno will pay an official visit to India on June 15, according to the Ministry of External Affairs.

Albares will meet with External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar in New Delhi to discuss bilateral, regional, and international topics of mutual concern.

"India and Spain enjoy close and amicable relations," the Ministry stated in a statement. After Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Spain in 2017, bilateral ties were given a new push.

"Albares' visit will provide an opportunity to evaluate the whole range of our bilateral relations and enhance our relationship in areas such as commerce, defence, science and technology, innovation, climate change, and culture." Spain is India's seventh largest trade partner in Europe, according to the Ministry.

Meanwhile, the Union Cabinet, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, approved the signing of an agreement on cooperation and mutual assistance in customs matters between India and Spain in January of this year.

"The agreement will help in making available, reliable, timely, and cost-effective information and intelligence for the prevention and investigation of Customs offences and the apprehending of Customs offenders," according to a press release from the Cabinet.
