The world is comfortable with India's rising stature, Prime Minister said on Tuesday as he met the latest batch of (IFS) officers in New Delhi.

Sharing his thoughts with the group of 41 officer trainees, he stressed on the need for the Foreign Service officers to be extremely well informed, and think in a global perspective, a statement said.

He urged the officer trainees to keep in touch with their batchmates from other services so that they could always keep abreast of developments at home.

"The Prime Minister said, that by and large, the world believes that has a bright future, and is comfortable with India's rising stature," according to the statement.
