New Delhi: India and Germany, newly-elected members to the UN Security Council, will Monday give a fresh push to the G4 initiative for UN reforms and expand their counter-terror cooperation when External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna holds talks with his German counterpart Guido Westerwelle Monday.

The two foreign ministers will discuss a wide array of issues, including the expansion of the UN Security Council, enhanced counter-terror cooperation and the intensification of economic and defence ties.

Early this week, India and Germany were elected as non-permanent members of the UN Security Council for 2011-2012 in a vote of the UN General Assembly.

The two sides will seek to boost bilateral business ties when Westerwelle meets Commerce Minister Anand Sharma Tuesday. The two countries, which have set a bilateral trade target of 20 billion euros by 2012, will also seek to scale up their trade and investment.

The two sides recently agreed to set up a hotline at a high government level to resolve visa problems faced by business persons and skilled professionals of the two countries.
