New Delhi: Indian Army chief of general staff, General Deepak Kapoor, will make a three-day visit to Germany, starting Wednesday, in a bid to strengthen defence relations between the two countries.
Gen Kapoor, currently on a four-day visit to Israel, will arrive in Germany at a time when a new coalition government under the leadership of chancellor, Angela Merkel, has just taken over the reins of power.
As part of his visit, Gen Kapoor will hold parleys with Germany's top military leadership and discuss ways of extending cooperation between the armed forces of both the countries.
Defence relations between the two countries have been increasing in the recent past and India was also one of the organising partners in the Berlin Air Show in 2008.
The two countries have also signed a bilateral Defence Cooperation Agreement in 2006.
