British PM to pay maiden visit to India from Nov 6
British Prime Minister Theresa May on Sunday said she will visit India next month for her first bilateral visit outside Europe during which she will hold talks with her Indian counterpart Narendra Modi and review all aspects of the India-UK strategic partnership post-Brexit.
May, 60, will be in India between November 6 and 8 on the invitation of Modi.
She will be accompanied by her international trade minister Liam Fox and a business delegation drawn from regions across the UK as “examples of the best of British business”.
“The relationships between our two countries are strong, and the Indian diaspora plays a vital role in our national life,” May said.
“In my talks with Prime Minister Modi, I want to build on our relationship for the benefit of both our countries, generating jobs and wealth and maintaining cooperation on defence and security,” the Prime Minister said.
