Indian PM Modi to visit Sweden, Britain

Business and trade is high on agenda when Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will meet the Prime Minister of Sweden and other Nordic leaders in Stockholm.

The bilateral leg of the United Kingdom tour begins with PM Modi's talks with Theresa May at 10 Downing Street on Wednesday morning, during which both leaders are expected to discuss a wide range of issues of mutual interest, including separatism, cross-border terrorism, visa and immigration. On Tuesday, Modi will call on the king of Sweden before heading to a "restricted" meeting with the Swedish PM before formal delegation talks.

On the sidelines of the India-Nordic Summit, Modi will have separate bilateral meetings with Prime Ministers of Denmark, Finland, Iceland and Norway. According to figures provided by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the trade of India with the Nordic countries amounted to about 5, 300 million dollars in 2016-2017, with a cumulative foreign direct investment in the Southeast Asian country of 2, 500 million dollars.

"On Thursday and Friday, I will also participate in the CHOGM being hosted by the United Kindom which will take over as the new Chair-in-Office of the Commonwealth from Malta", the prime minister said. On Sunday, the PM said the visit would help deepen bilateral ties with both the countries. The NISAU UK expressed a sense of great distress and horror over these crimes of a "heinous nature" and urged Modi to make an announcement on the issue when he addresses the diaspora at the Bharat Ki Baat, Sabke Saath event in London on Wednesday, during which he will address questions from around the world in a live global telecast.

Also, he added, the Prime Minister broke his silence only after pressure from the media, social media, the opposition and Congress President Rahul Gandhi who led a midnight protest at India Gate demanding safety for women. But even more reprehensible than such abuse of power, it is the response of the state government in hounding the victim of rape and her family instead of the alleged perpetrator that shows how perverted governance practices have become. He was accompanied by CM Raman Singh.
