London, May 26 (PTI) UK Opposition Leader Sir Keir Starmer on Friday said it was time for the India-UK relationship to be widened across all critical areas as he set out the Labour Party’s foreign policy pitch in the lead up to the general election expected next year.

Starmer said he sees huge scope of mutual benefit from enhancing the bilateral ties.

According to a statement, he would be making a keynote address to open India Global Forum’s (IGF) annual UK-India Week summit in London next month. The address will mark the first major insight into the Labour leader’s vision for the party’s relationship with India, which went through some strain over sensitive issues such as Kashmir under his predecessor Jeremy Corbyn.
