Sharing a modern partnership bound by strong ties, the bilateral relationship between India and the UK was upgraded to a 'Strategic Partnership' in 2004 and further strengthened through reciprocal visits by the prime ministers.
Subsequently, during the virtual summit between the prime ministers of both the countries on May 4 this year, 'Roadmap 2030' was adopted towards elevating the bilateral ties to a 'Comprehensive Strategic Partnership'.
