President Pratibha Patil on Thursday left here for Poland after a three-day state visit to Spain during which three agreements to enhance bilateral ties were inked and the two sides agreed to work on a comprehensive strategy to tackle terrorism.

Patil, who is the first Indian head of the state to visit Spain, left for the Polish capital Warsaw after holding wide-ranging talks with Spanish King Juan Carlos and Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodrigeuz Zapatero.

Indian delegation accompanying the President expressed "satisfaction" and described the visit as "highly successful". During Patil's visit progress was made to boost bilateral ties in all spheres.

The delegation members said the aim to convince Spain to look at India as destination for investment was achieved with Spanish leaders eager to take all measures to strengthen the ties and there was a "total convergence of opinion" between India and Spain on the issues that came up for discussion.

Quoting the Spanish Prime Minister as saying that "Spain has to now conquer India", Secretary (West) in Ministry of External Affairs Nalin Surie said it shows the importance and the willingness on the part of both India and Spain to qualitatively enhance the relationship.
