President of Germany Frank-Walter Steinmeier and his wife Elke B├╝denbender on Thursday arrived here on a five-day State visit to the country.

The visiting dignitaries were received by Union Minister of State for Drinking Water and Sanitation SS Ahluwalia."Herzlich willkommen! Warm welcome to President of Germany Frank-Walter Steinmeier and Mrs Elke B├╝denbender to India.
