India UK Relations: Will increase defense and trade partnership with India… announced Rishi Sunak, thanked PM Modi

London: Britain’s newly-elected Prime Minister Rishi Sunak on Thursday thanked his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi for congratulating him on his new role. He said he is “excited” by what the two great democracies can achieve as we continue to strengthen our security, defense and economic ties. Prime Minister Modi on Thursday spoke to his British counterpart Sunak over phone and congratulated him on taking charge. Rishi Sunak on Tuesday took over as the first British Prime Minister of Indian origin. He was elected unopposed as the new leader of the Conservative Party on the day of Diwali. Former UK Finance Minister Sunak is a Hindu and he is the youngest Prime Minister of Britain in the last 210 years. The telephonic talks between the two leaders took place just a day before the visit of UK Secretary of State James Cleverley to India.

PM Modi said – will further strengthen the partnership
PM Modi tweeted that it was a pleasure to talk to Rishi Sunak today. I congratulated him on taking over as Prime Minister of Britain. We will further strengthen our comprehensive strategic partnership. We will work together to further strengthen our Comprehensive Strategic Partnership, Modi said. We also agreed on how important it is to quickly finalize a comprehensive and balanced free trade agreement.

After this Sunak said that I thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi for congratulating me on starting my new role. Britain and India have a lot in common. I am excited about what our two great democracies can achieve as we further strengthen our security, defense and economic partnership in the months and years to come.

British Foreign Minister to reach India on Friday
British Foreign Minister Cleverley will reach India on Friday. He will pay tribute to those who lost their lives in the 2008 terrorist attack on the Taj Palace Hotel in Mumbai on Friday. He will travel to New Delhi on Saturday where he will attend a special meeting of the United Nations Security Council-Committee on Counter-Terrorism (UNSC-CCT). External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar may hold discussions with his British counterpart on the sidelines of the meeting. Cleverly said that our relationship with India is very important to me. As the world’s largest democracy, India is a natural partner for Britain in the Indo-Pacific. It is an economic and technological force. Our strong ties will boost both our economies and help address global security challenges.

PM Modi congratulated Sunak on Monday
Prime Minister Modi on Monday congratulated Sunak on being elected Britain’s new prime minister and said he looked forward to working together on global issues and implementing Roadmap 2030. Modi had said in a tweet, “Heartfelt congratulations to Rishi Sunak! As you are about to become Prime Minister of the UK, I look forward to working together on global issues and implementing Roadmap 2030. Special Diwali Greetings to the ‘Living Setu’ of British Indians. We have transformed historical ties into modern partnerships.

Free trade agreement with Britain expected
India and Britain had started talks for a free trade agreement in January and aimed to conclude the talks by Diwali, but missed the deadline due to a lack of consensus on the issues. The India-UK free trade deal is likely to gain much needed momentum with Sunak now moving to 10 Downing Street, the official residence of the Prime Minister. According to experts, political stability in the UK will now help accelerate talks for the deal, which could potentially double bilateral trade by 2030.
