In a bid to boost people-to-people ties and cultural exchanges, Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen recently inaugurated a Danish Cultural Institute in New Delhi.
"This year, we will celebrate 70 years of diplomatic ties," Rasmussen said at the inauguration ceremony. "We live in times of uncertainty but we (India and Denmark) have a long-lasting friendship."
Stating that people of both countries should respect each other's culture, Rasmussen expressed the hope that the new centre will bring India and Denmark closer.
Headquartered in Denmark, the Danish Cultural Institute has been engaged in fostering mutual understanding between people and cultures since 1940. It also has branches in Belgium, Brazil, China, Latvia, Poland and Russia.
