British High Commissioner Dominic Asquith on Thursday said that even after Britain’s exit from the European Union, the United Kingdom will continue to remain the most important European partner of India.
“The United Kingdom will remain the most important European partner of India. You will witness the expansion of diplomatic and trade activities. The UK will adopt a distinctive approach,” said the envoy.
The envoy also supported India’s aim to be a permanent bid at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).
He said, ” India should be a permanent member of UNSC.”
Regarding the CAA, Asquith said, ” We have noted what the Indian Government has said. Protests happen in every democracy. I’m sure the government will address the concerns of its citizens regarding the CAA.”
