Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi received Djibouti President at Rashtrapati Bhawan’s Cultural Centre on Sunday.
A high-level delegation led by the President of the Republic of Djibouti Ismail Omar Guelleh went to Delhi to participate in a big conference on solar energy. Presiden IOH, accompanied by members of the cabinet including Mahmoud Ali Youssouf, Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and Minister of Energy, Yonis Ali Guedi shows his support for renewable energy.
PM Modi said that he talked with President of the Republic of Djibouti Ismail Omar Guelleh “about ways to give impetus to development cooperation and mitigating climate change”.
Djibouti and India have a long-term successful development of the bilateral cooperation in a variety of fields, including combat piracy in the Indian Ocean and educational sphere, and Guelleh’s visit to India will likely create a good opportunity for discussing cooperation, in terms of trade and security.
President of India Ram Nath Kovind visited Djibouti late last year to pave the way for a more cooperation between the two countries.
Djibouti hosts foreign bases that presented themselves at this strategically located country, including Chinese, Japanese, Americans and French. India will likely have its own base in Djibouti next to China’s.
