Former British PM meets Modi

New Delhi: Former British Prime Minister David Cameron called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi here on Friday and the two discussed regional and global issues of mutual interest.

External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Vikas Swarup said Modi recalled his successful visit to the UK in November 2015, and thanked Cameron for his “personal support and contribution to strengthening India-UK ties during his tenure as Prime Minister of the UK”.

Cameron is in India to attend a media event on Saturday. This is his first trip to India since he stepped down following the referendum victory of supporters of UK’s exit from the European Union.
