PM Modi Meets British Counterpart Cameron


London: After a rock star visit to the Silicon Valley, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday met British Prime Minister David Cameron on the side lines of the UN General Assembly summit.

“An Englishman in New York. PM @nariandramodi receives PM @David_Cameron of UK,” tweeted External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup.

Modi returned to New York today on the final leg of his five-day US visit. He has a packed day of engagements, including a summit meeting with US President Barack Obama, before he heads home.

The Prime Minister is also scheduled to hold a bilateral meeting with French President Francois Hollande. He will also attend a summit, organised by Mr Obama, on countries that contribute to UN peacekeeping forces.

Modi spent two days in San Jose, California, on the West Coast, tapping IT giants Google, Facebook and other Silicon Valley honchos for his Digital India and Make in India initiatives after having addressed the annual summit of the UN General Assembly in New York.
