On Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, had a phone conversation about bilateral ties between the two countries. This conversation covers a range of issues including trade, technology, investments, defense & security, and people-to-people relations.
Modi commended Boris Johnson for his approach to negotiations on the bilateral free trade agreement and the adoption of the ‘India-UK Roadmap 2030’. During their discussion, Modi and Johnson discussed Ukraine and Russia extensively. However, Modi showed faith in international law.
This conversation with Boris showed yet again that PM Modi’s only hope for bringing back Indian students and citizens is through diplomatic means.
The country is poised to become the third-largest economy in the world by 2050. India will receive a great deal of benefits from the ‘Free Trade Agreement’ signed between India and the UK by allowing UK businesses to trade with India.
