In the photographs shared by the German envoy, Baerbock was seen in the company of some women at the Sis Ganj Gurudwara and later checking out Indian ethnic dresses at a local shop in Chandni Chowk. To pay for her purchase, the German foreign minister used the digital payment made Paytm.
Taking to Twitter, Baerbock described that for her, the official visit to India felt like she was “visiting a friend”. She shared a picture with Indian Foreign Minister S Jaishankar and captioned it in German, “Not only because we have seen each other so often this year — the world situation makes our close coordination more than necessary — my first official visit to #Indien feels like visiting friends. Thank you very much, dear @DrSJaishankar.”
Nicht nur, weil wir uns in diesem Jahr schon so häufig gesehen haben – die Weltlage macht unsere enge Abstimmung mehr als nötig – fühlt sich mein erster offizieller Besuch in #Indien an wie der Besuch bei Freunden. Vielen Dank dafür, lieber @DrSJaishankar! 1/3 pic.twitter.com/BM8kTNfYGx
