PM Modi Calls Off Visit To Portugal For India-EU Summit

Several media reports quoting unnamed government sources on Tuesday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has cancelled his visit to Portugal for the India-European Union Summit.

The India – EU summit, which was scheduled for May 8, will now likely be held virtually, media reports, adding that the Prime Minister’s visit to France, too, has been called off.

Earlier on Monday, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson cancelled his New Delhi visit due to the rise of covid 19 cases in India.

“In response to the media queries on the upcoming visit of the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom to India, an official spokesperson said, “In view of the prevailing Covid situation, it has been decided by mutual agreement that the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom will not visit India next week. The two sides will be holding a virtual meeting in the coming days to launch plans for a transformed India-U.K. relationship. Both leaders attach the highest importance to taking the India-U.K. partnership to its fullest potential and propose to remain in close touch in this regard and look forward to an in-person meeting later in the year.”
