Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday asked the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson at the virtual summit to extradite the economic criminals who had fled London to India to run their trial in the country. On this appeal of PM Modi, British Prime Minister Johnson said that “whatever will be possible will be done, so that extradition is expedited”. He said that there are some legal hurdles in extradition under the British justice system.
Let us know that on Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi held an ‘online’ summit meeting with the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. The purpose of this meeting was to intensify relationships in various fields including health and business. On this occasion, the Prime Minister of Britain announced UK-India trade and investment worth one billion pounds. According to a statement released from the UK Prime Minister’s Office, this trade and investment will generate more than 6,500 jobs in the UK.
This package includes new Indian investment of £53.3 million in the UK. This is expected to generate more than 6,000 jobs in key sectors like health and technology. According to the statement, this includes the investment of £24 million from the Serum Institute. This investment will be made in the vaccine business and new sales office in the UK. This is expected to generate more than one billion dollars of new business.
Prior to the summit, the Ministry of External Affairs said on Sunday that the meeting would be an important opportunity to take multidimensional strategy relations to a new height and increase cooperation on regional and global issues related to bilateral interests. The ministry had said, “A comprehensive framework will be released during the summit.” This will clear the way to further deepen Indo-Brienne cooperation in five major areas in the next decade.
Johnson was scheduled to visit India last month but his trip was postponed due to the corona virus epidemic. Earlier, in January too, Johnson had plans to come to India to attend the Republic Day celebrations as the chief guest, but the trip was postponed due to an outbreak in Britain.
