Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will be leading a high-powered delegation to The Hague November 8 for the fifth annual India-European Union summit which is being viewed as a watershed in relations between the two sides, India‘s foreign ministry said Friday.
The summit will endorse the EU‘s proposal to upgrade its relationship with India to a strategic partnership. The EU has a similar partnership with five other nations - US, Canada, Russia, Japan and China.
Watershed表示“分水岭，转折点”，例如：A watershed in modern American history, a time that . . . forever changed American social attitudes（现代美国历史的转折点，一个…永远改变了美国社会观念的时刻）。
