On Sunday, Germany’s Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock said Chancellor Olaf Scholz plans to visit India in the first quarter of next year.

"The Chancellor intends to visit India in the first quarter of 2023. Close interaction with the Indian presidency of the G20 is dear to our hearts,” Baerbock told the Hindu newspaper.

Baerbock is scheduled to pay an official visit to New Delhi from December 5 to 6 for talks with Indian Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, and the two ministers will discuss bilateral, regional, and global issues of common concern.

It is noteworthy that India assumed the presidency of G20 on the first of this December and continues its presidency until November 30, 2023, and it is expected that about 200 meetings of the group will be held at different levels during the next year, and the main event is scheduled to be held during the Indian presidency, which is the G20 summit, in New Delhi from 9 to 10 September 2023.

During India's tenure, a number of meetings on counter-terrorism and multilateral policy reforms for global challenges are expected to take place, with Jaishankar chairing them.
