India and the European Union today signed a civil nuclear agreement to set the stage for the India-EU virtual summit on Wednesday.

The summit, to be co-chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, European Council President Charles Michel and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, will unveil a joint roadmap for cooperation.

As Covid cases have risen in India, which is also a crucial link in the global pharmaceutical supply chain, both issues will be discussed at the summit, EU officials say.

Revealing that India had submitted an ambitious project to enhance India-EU connectivity, they said the other key areas are artificial intelligence, digital field, security, climate, environment and trade and investment. The two sides will also resume their dialogue on human rights.
