Prime Minister Narendra Modi will hold a virtual Summit with his British counterpart Boris Johnson today. During the summit, apart from exchanging views on regional and global issues of mutual interest, both leaders will discuss Covid 19 cooperation and the global efforts to fight the pandemic.
The Summit will be an important opportunity to elevate multi-faceted strategic ties and enhance cooperation on regional and global issues of mutual interest. A comprehensive Roadmap 2030 will be launched during the Summit, which will pave the way for further expanding and deepening India-UK cooperation over the next decade across five key areas. These are people-to-people relationship, trade and prosperity, defence and security, climate action and healthcare.
India and UK have enjoyed a Strategic Partnership since 2004. It has been marked by regular high level exchanges and growing convergences in diverse areas. Mr Jhonson was to visit India late last month, But days before the visit, he called it off in view of the Coronavirus pandemic.
