Ahead of his visit to Austria, Modi stated on Sunday that the two countries' shared values of democracy, freedom, and the rule of law will serve as the foundation for a stronger partnership.

Modi's statement came a day after Austrian Chancellor Nehammer said on 'X', "I very much look forward to welcoming Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister of India, the world's largest democracy, next week in Vienna." "This visit is a special honour as it marks the first visit by an Indian Prime Minister in over 40 years and a significant milestone as we celebrate 75 years of diplomatic relations with India." he added.
