Johnson arrives in India to meet Modi, seek economic deals

Associated Press

LONDON (AP) — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is trying to set aside his political troubles and focus on economic ties and the war in Ukraine during an official trip to India. Johnson landed in the western state of Gujarat on Thursday, kicking off a two-day visit that will see him meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi on Friday. He hopes to strike new economic deals and to coax India away from Russia in response to the invasion of Ukraine. India has stood back from international efforts to criticize President Vladimir Putin and impose economic sanctions on Russia. For Johnson, the trip is a respite from a scandal over lockdown-breaching government parties during the coronavirus pandemic.
