||<p>The Prime Minister, my Rt Hon. Friend the Member for Maidenhead (Mrs May) made
her first bilateral visit overseas, outside of Europe, to India in November 2016.
This demonstrates how strongly we value the relationship with India. As the Foreign
Secretary, my Rt Hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson)
said when he visited India in January, the UK and India are natural partners. We share
a longstanding, broad and deep friendship with India, including in trade and investment,
people-to-people ties and our partnership on defence and international security.</p>
