Brussels off Modi’s Europe tour in April

New Delhi, March 15

The plans of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's brief visit to Brussels during his Europe trip next month have been shelved after the European Union did not reply to India's proposal for the same.
Modi will now be visiting two European countries - France and Germany - combined with his travel to Canada, sources said, adding that dates were also suggested to the EU for a Prime Ministerial visit in the second week of April.
"However, with EU not responding to India's proposal, the government went ahead with firming of the Prime Minister's travel itinerary without a visit to Brussels," sources said.
According to speculation, one of the reasons for the European Union not responding to Indian proposal was that it was upset with the slow progress
