Narendra Modi and British Prime minister Theresa May have signed two agreements which deal on ease of doing business.
While addressing the India-UK summit May stated that India and UK have made strategic plans to enhance the relation between both the countries.
“Both UK and India face an increasing threat of cyber attack from other states, terrorists, and criminals operating in cyberspace. PM Modi and I have agreed to step our cooperation by negotiating a cyber framework between our countries”, May remarked on the cyber security.
“We have agreed to strengthen our cooperation in particular by sharing best practice to tackle the use of internet by violent extremists”, May, who has headed to India for her maiden visit, added.
Modi also has emphasised on terrorism in his speech and stated: “We agreed that terrorism is not a limited security challenge, it moves across borders and affects entire humanity.”
While Theresa May urged that Britain wants to see India as a permanent member of United Nations Security Council and she extended their consistent support.
As per the joint statement, both Prime Ministers are dedicated to investing in India-UK relationship. Modi has invited British companies to build a partnership with Indian enterprise beyond trade in defence equipment.
May declared that UK will continue to welcome brightest and best students from India to UK, by clarifying her own statement which she had made earlier. Today morning May declared that the access to Britain would be easier to business magnets, not for students.
On the last day of her India visit, May will be heading to Bengaluru, the Tech hub of India.
