India has been facing a dazzling wave of CVIV-19 infections: more than 386,000 cases recorded in 24 hours for 3,500 deaths. It seems a lot in absolute terms, but little for a country of 1.3 billion people. The causes of deaths in India are very rarely reported in normal times and even less in a pandemic time.

"We decided to take over the negotiations for a trade agreement that would meet the current challenges," said India and twenty-seven in a joint statement.

No schedule has yet been set for the resumption of negotiations, frozen since 2013 due to disagreements including the decline in customs duties or patent protection, has New Delhi been clarified.

In parallel, negotiations will also focus on the protection of investments and intellectual property rights, in particular to limit counterfeiting, says the joint communiqué.

Blocks also intend to strengthen their cooperation in the field of sustainable connectivity, the European Commission has indicated the European Commission in a separate statement.

"Several models compete for development, infrastructure, trade and governance," says Josep Borrell, the top EU representative for foreign affairs and security policy.

"The European Union is the most integrated region in the world and we are proud of how we have improved the lives of European citizens through an international standards, sustainability and common rules approach."

The EU-India partnership in connectivity is the second partner of this type, after that signed with Japan in September 2019, recalls the Commission.

"This partnership (...) opens a new chapter in our relations. While the coronavirus continues to cause terrible ravages, we must also use ourselves to rebuild in better," says the President of the Commission, Ursula von der Leyen , in the press release.
