The Minister of Foreign Affairs attends the I Spain India Council Foundation Award ceremony

José Manuel García-Margallo praised the work of the Spain India Council Foundation and maestro Zubin Mehta

The Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, José Manuel García-Margallo, attended the I Spain India Council Foundation Award ceremony, presided over by Queen Sofía of Spain at the Palau de les Arts in Valencia.

Minister García-Margallo praised the work of the Council Foundation, which has contributed substantially to bringing Spain and India closer together in just three years.

The Minister said bilateral relations with India were of the utmost importance to the Spanish government, as he conveyed to Indian Minister of External Affairs Somanahalli Mallaiah Krishna on April 20 during his visit to Madrid.

The Award was created to recognise the work of individuals who contribute to bilateral relations between the two countries. In its first edition, it went to Indian maestro Zubin Mehta, a symbol of friendship between Spain and India and one of the most prominent names in world culture.

The Minister described Mehta as “an example of the robust relations between Spain and India and an outstanding symbol of the friendship between the two countries.”
