PM: Huge potential for cooperation in defence

18 April 2018

"The primary focus of Sikhs protesting will be the Indian PM, Narendra Modi, but they will also be there to show support for the Canadian PM, Justin Trudeau, for standing up for the rights of Sikh nationalists when he recently visited India", a statement from Sikh Federation UK said.

Mr. Modi has also been reluctant to talk about a rape accusation against a state lawmaker from his party in India's most populous state, Uttar Pradesh, which is governed by the B.J.P. He listed a number of sustainable "modern solutions" his country had to offer, including smart cities, green tech and innovation.

Modi said India and Sweden have also agreed to strengthen their defence and security cooperation.

"Defence cooperation is the biggest pillar in our relations". In the defence sector, Sweden has been India's partner from a long time. Leaders exchanged views on strengthening bilateral cooperation across several sectors.

"We have made a decision to strengthen relations as far as cyber security is concerned", the prime minister announced.

In his address, he also said that the Jan Dhan Yojna, Aadhaar and mobile technology had merged to create direct benefit transfer facility. Prime Minister Löfven welcomed India's recent accession to the worldwide export control regimes, including to Australia Group (AG), Wassenaar Arrangement (WA), Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR), and The Hague Code of Conduct against Ballistic Missile Proliferation (HCOC), and expressed support for India's membership of the Nuclear Supplier Group (NSG).

Senate President Robert Stivers, R-Manchaster, and House Democrat Leader Rocky Adkins both said he needed to apologize. "I'm offended by the idea that people so cavalierly and so flippantly disregarded what's truly best for children".

Initiate a multi-stake holder Innovation Partnership for a Sustainable Future, underpinning our mutual commitment todrive prosperity and growth and address societal challenges such as climate change and sustainable development through innovation. "The European Union is more sensitive to the issue now, which gives us an opportunity to sensitise them about the threat of terrorism and violent extremism, and how these groups are active in our neighborhood, particularly in South Asia", she said.

Sweden's Leader of the Opposition Ulf Kristersson called on visiting Indian Prime Minister Narndra Modi here on Tuesday. All the leaders will take part in the first-ever India Nordic summit, being co-hosted by India and Sweden.

Sikh Council UK, a UK based Sikh group, has wrote an open letter to India Prime Minister Narendra Modi ahead of his visit to the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting taking place in the United Kingdom this week.

Modi also received a ceremonial reception.

"PM Modi, who held talks with his Swedish counterpart Stefan Lofven earlier in the day, was welcomed by children in traditional Indian costume on his arrival at the Stockholm City Hall in Sweden's capital Stockholm to attend the Roundtable Meeting with Swedish CEOs".

On his return journey from Britain on April 20, he will stop in Germany to meet German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
