The India Story Episode 3 | UK PM in India, FM in US signals India is 'open for business'

How can India bolster its economic presence in the Indo-Pacific region? In conversation with experts, Former Indian Ambassador to the US Arun Singh, and Mukesh Aghi, President & CEO, US-India Strategic Partnership Forum

It's been a busy week for diplomacy for India, with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on a 2-day visit to meet his 'khaas dost' Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in Washington to build on the India-US 2+2 dialogue held earlier this month.

With global geopolitics in a flux, the Russia-Ukraine war figured prominently in the discussion between India and UK PMs, especially with India facing mounting criticism from the West over its position on Russia. Johnson said the UK has raised the issue of Ukraine with India diplomatically, adding that India has historic ties with Russia and everyone understands it.

Addressing the media in a joint statement, PM Modi called for immediate ceasefire and stressed on dialogue and diplomacy to resolve the Russia-Ukraine crisis. New Delhi and Britain's biggest focus was the Free Trade Agreement, and both nations hope to seal the deal by the end of this year. UK PM Boris Johnson said that India & the UK also had a shared interest in keeping the Indo-Pacific region free and open, in the face of growing threats of autocratic coercion.
