"Merkel may favour India"

Vaiju Naravane

BERLIN: A conservative coalition between the Christian Democrats (CDU-CSU) and the Free Democrats (FDP) would, from the point of view of India's interests, be the best government to emerge from Sunday's election in Germany, according to diplomats and commentators.

"They are Atlanticists, pro-American and pro-business. If the U.S. decides to lift restrictions against India within the Nuclear Suppliers Group, a CDU-FDP government would not have a problem supporting that," Dr Jacques Schuster of the conservative daily Die Welt, told The Hindu .

Mr. Sebastian Edathy a member of Parliament from the Chancellor Schroeder's SPD party told The Hindu : "India's most promising prospect is renewable energy, especially solar energy and Germany, which has made great strides in developing this technology in the past decade would be very happy to offer cooperation in this sector."
