James Cleverly said: “The intellectual horsepower of India is enormous and getting bigger. Whether it is dealing with potential future pandemics or dealing with non-communicable diseases or dealing with the opportunity and risks of AI or financial services or sustainable agriculture, I struggle to think of any sector where coordination and cooperation between the UK and India will not be a force for good in the world.”

Against the backdrop of major global conflicts, and following the first visit by an Indian Defence Minister to Britain in 22 years, the Home Secretary emphasised the vitality of the partnership in preventing conflict “spilling over".

James Cleverly said: “It was incredibly important that India's Defence Minister visited the UK because in a turbulent world, and a potentially turbulent region, having strong and long-standing partners, as we do with India, closely coordinating on security on the preservation of peace is incredibly important. Of course, the military relationship between India and the UK is very long standing. I really hope that together, demonstrating a strength of purpose, demonstrating commitment to democracy, and demonstrating a willingness to defend our values, the UK and India can work together prevent conflict spilling over and engulfing other parts of the world,".

Co-hosted by the Indian High Commission to the UK and Lord Jitesh Gadhia, the UK-India Parliamentary Lunch convened key players from the worlds of politics, business and finance over a sit-down lunch at the House of Lords to celebrate the growing ties between the two democracies as per reported by businesswireindia.com.

Referring to British Foreign Secretary David Cameron’s comments on the global conflict dashboard flashing red lights, India Global Forum Chairman and CEO Manoj Ladwa said: “As we have seen, approaches and responses can vary, even between the closest of partners. These divergences are more about nuance and emphasis, rather than the fundamental values of the rule of law, freedom of belief, diversity and inclusion, freer trade, and democracy, that we all so cherish. In such times, democracies must work harder to work together. Because we all know, democracies work best, when democracies work together.”
