During the meeting, PM Modi congratulated Johnson for successfully organising the COP26 and for his personal leadership in championing global action for climate change mitigation and adaptation.
“The two Prime Ministers reviewed the implementation of the Roadmap 2030 priorities particularly in the trade and economy, people-to-people, health, defence and security areas,” the statement said.

“Both leaders also discussed regional and global challenges including Afghanistan, Counter-Terrorism, Indo-Pacific, supply chain resilience and post-Covid global economic recovery. Prime Minister reiterated his desire to welcome PM Johnson in India soon,” the MEA said.
The leaders also expressed satisfaction at the progress in delivering the Enhanced Trade Partnership including steps taken towards the launch of FTA negotiations.
Johnson was supposed to visit India this year on two occasions but both tours were cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
