Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday conveyed warm greetings to Italian Prime Minister Georgia Meloni on the occasion of Italy’s 79th Liberation Day anniversary, as per an official statement.

Expressing gratitude for the invitation to the upcoming G7 Summit set to be hosted in Italy this June, PM Modi reaffirmed commitment to bolstering the Strategic Partnership between the two nations.


The leaders engaged in discussions regarding various regional and global matters of mutual interest, emphasizing the significance of strengthening bilateral ties, as stated in the official release.

Prime Minister Modi, taking to the microblogging platform X (formerly known as Twitter), said, “Thanked her for the invite to the G7 Summit in June. Discussed taking forward #G20India outcomes at the G7. Reaffirmed commitment to deepening our Strategic Partnership.”

The conversation also revolved around advancing key outcomes from India’s G20 Presidency, particularly in supporting the Global South, during Italy’s G7 Presidency. The commitment to fortify the bilateral Strategic Partnership was reiterated, along with an exchange of perspectives on regional and global developments.

Prime Minister Modi last met his Italian counterpart at the COP28 Summit in Dubai in December 2023. During that encounter, PM Modi expressed optimism about collaborative efforts between India and Italy for a sustainable and prosperous future.


Furthermore, the two Prime Ministers had a bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the G20 Summit in New Delhi the previous year. During this meeting, PM Modi commended Italy’s support for India’s G20 Presidency and welcomed Italy’s decision to join initiatives such as the Global Biofuel Alliance and the India – Middle East – Europe Economic Corridor.

The forthcoming G7 Summit, scheduled to be held in Italy’s Apulia region from June 13-15, 2024, holds immense significance on the international stage. Comprising Italy, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States of America, the G7 also includes representation from the European Union.

Italy currently holds the Presidency of the G7, which commenced on January 1, 2024, and will continue until December 31, 2024.
