Dr. Subhash Bhamre reiterated India’s resolve in enhancing its defence capability and improving its defence industrial base, aiming towards becoming self sufficient.


He invited greater British participation in the ‘Make in India’ programme, a flagship initiative of the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi.


Dr. Subhash Bhamre also drew attention to the challenges being faced by both countries due to increased terrorist activities globally, as well as cross border terrorism being faced by India.


He emphasised that terrorism is a global phenomenon and a clear message must go to countries supporting terrorism. There could be no differentiation between good and bad terrorists, he said.


The United Kingdom Minister acknowledged India’s stand on terrorism and expressed the UK’s resolve to cooperate in the field of counter terrorism. India has tremendous experience in UN Peacekeeping operations worldwide and the United Kingdom expressed its desire for learning from the Indian experience.
