Indian PM to visit UK, Turkey from November 12-16
11 November 2015, Nirapad News: Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi will pay visit the United Kingdom and Turkey from November 12 to November 16.
In a press conference Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar said here today.
He said terrorism and economic reforms seeking to boost investment will be the major agenda during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s upcoming visit to the United Kingdom.
“There will be a lot of political and security related discussions between the Prime Ministers and also on terrorism and extremism.
Indian Foreign Secretary said, “We expect a statement on defence and security, development partnership and on energy and climate change.”
The Foreign Secretary informed that the Prime Minister will have a luncheon meeting with her majesty the Queen at the Buckingham Palace.
Modi will also be the first Indian Prime Minister to address the U.K Parliament.
“This will be the third meeting between both the leaders as Prime Minister Cameron has visited India thrice and both he and his party have spoken strongly in terms of enhancing bilateral terms with India, and we reciprocate that interest,” Jaishankar said.
Interestingly, when Prime Minister Modi pays homage at the statue of Gandhi near the Parliament, a fly-past with the Indian colours is likely.
His other engagements include a visit to BR Ambedkar’s house in which he lived when he was a student at the London School of Economics as well as unveiling the bust of Sri Basaveshwara at the Thames river embankment.
On the Prime Minister’s visit to the Tata Motors, Jaishankar said that it was a very significant event as it showed India as a significant job creator in the U.K
