Rishi Sunak makes ‘historic’ G20 visit to India
Downing Street says the “historic” visit will be “a powerful reminder of the living bridge between the two countries”.
The PM’s wife Akshata Murty, who was born and grew up in India, accompanied him on his trip. Murty is also the daughter of one of India’s richest men.
PM Sunak will meet world leaders during the summit – a gathering of leaders from the 19 biggest economies in the world plus the European Union.
Speaking on the way to the summit, PM Sunak said he was “excited to be back” in India, calling it “a country that is very near and dear to me”.
He said: “It’s obviously special. I saw somewhere that I was referred to as India’s son-in-law, which I hope was meant affectionately!”
