New Delhi, Feb.17 (ANI): Britain’s Minister of State for Defence Procurement Philip Dunne will visit New Delhi on Thursday.
Dunne will meet Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar to further boost the UK and India’s defence and security partnership following Prime Minister Modi’s visit to London last year.
Dunne said, “Last November, our Prime Ministers set out their vision for a more strategic defence and international security partnership. The UK and India face many similar strategic challenges, so, we need to work even more closely together. In order to take our defence relationship to the next level, we are establishing capability partnerships to structure our cooperation on strategic capabilities across ‘principal aspects of military effectiveness. I am here to progress this initiative together with the Indian Defence Minister and to hear from different parts of the Indian defence community.”
Dunne will also participate in a round table discussion organised by the United Service Institution, which will discuss the strategic defence partnership between the UK and India. (ANI)
