BRUSSELS -- The European Union and India are set to discuss resuming long-suspended talks on a free trade agreement at a virtual summit on Saturday, the bloc's foreign policy chief told Nikkei.

Josep Borrell, the EU's high representative for foreign affairs and security policy, spoke ahead of the summit where the two sides are set to announce a "connectivity partnership" for transportation, energy and digital infrastructure. The bloc inked a similar agreement with Japan in 2019.
