Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with his UK counterpart Rishi Sunak on the sidelines of the G20 Summit in Bali on Wednesday, and the discussions covered important areas of collaboration such as trade, mobility, defense, and security.

This was the first time the two leaders met. Last month, Rishi Sunak was elected Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. PM Modi congratulated him on his election.

According to an MEA release, the two leaders expressed satisfaction with the state of the broad India-UK Comprehensive Strategic Partnership and progress on the Roadmap 2030 for Future Relations. The two leaders recognized the value of cooperating in bilateral and multilateral forums such as the G20 and the Commonwealth. “Discussions touched on important areas of collaboration such as trade, mobility, defense, and security,” according to the release.

Rishi Sunak is the United Kingdom’s first Prime Minister of Indian origin. India and the United Kingdom have a multifaceted strategic relationship. On the sidelines of the G20 summit, PM Modi met with several world leaders, including Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, French President Emmanuel Macron, and US President Joe Biden.
