NEW DELHI: Germany may be India's closest partner in Europe but New Delhi has its work cut out to stay relevant in the continent. A day after PM Narendra Modi took off for Spain, China has occupied eyeballs in Berlin, with Chinese premier visiting to meet chancellor Angela Merkel.
"China is very important to us for economic and trade reasons," a German official said. China is Germany's largest trading partner outside of Europe but beyond the economy, Germans are a little wary of both China's trading and geopolitical principles, and also of its expansionist projects like OBOR.
too much attention is not good, better to develop yourself quietly.
Impossible. We Indian are born to be loud mouth false braggarts like Modi.
SONIA FOR PRESIDENT
Hahaha including u
Speak for yourself.

What kind of news is this? Indian media must maintain their own standards.
See the marked difference of body language of Angela Merkel while welcoming Indian Premier and while welcoming Chinese P r? India has still long way to go.
Germany's trade with China is over $150 billion and with India $15 billion. Let the Laalu Prasad, Sharad Pawar and Mamta Banerjee types ponder this.
China does get more media attention anywhere in the world. But the people and politicians are very skeptical of China and Chinese aggression. We must have trust and faith that China will not find favor in the long run because they are a Military risk.
Their is no comparison between China and India. China is a superpower and India will take another 50 years just to give toilets to all its poor illetrate one billion.
Alright, Lets not pi** in pants...Chinese is a mighty economy and no surprise it attracts attention of every country's media, let alone Germany. When INDIA becomes a mighty economic power house....that is when we see the same attention if not even more than what china is getting now. Hang up until and work hard to contribute our bit to our lovely nation to progress.
Modi is born looser
Bottom line china is very powerful than india , also speaks in one voice , while india is divided and our leaders are more concerns about cows
