UK PM Boris Johnson India Visit Updates: UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Friday during his visit to India said that the India’s position on Russia is ‘well known’ and is not going to change, news agency ANI reported. He also said that the whole world is obliged to do more with the all that is happening around the world and Ukraine. Johnson also said, “India has historic relationship with Russian and everybody respects it.” He also highlighted India’s stand over the Bucha incident and said, “You have to recognise that India came out strongly against what happened in Bucha.”
After his meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday, UK PM Boris Johnson said that the two countries had a shared interest in keeping the Indo-Pacific region free and open, particularly in the face of growing threats of autocratic coersion. Meanwhile, calling the British PM’s visit to India history, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the two leaders had also discussed global developments and the need for dialogue and diplomacy for an immediate ceasefire in Ukraine.
Johnson said that the relationship between the two countries is stronger than ever. Johnson on Thursday indicated that he would raise “difficult issues”, including the Jahangirpuri demolition drive in the National Capital, during his meeting with PM Modi. “We always raise the difficult issues, of course we do, but the fact is that India is a country of 1.35 billion people and it is democratic, it’s the world’s largest democracy,” he told UK reporters during a visit to a new bulldozer factory in Gujarat.
