London, Oct 3 (PTI) British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has reiterated his commitment to closer India-UK ties across different sectors, including a free trade agreement (FTA) between the two countries.

Addressing a reception by the diaspora group Conservative Friends of India (CFIN) on the sidelines of the ongoing Conservative Party conference in Manchester on Monday evening, the British Indian leader began by reflecting upon his “successful” first visit to India as Prime Minister for the India-led G20 Summit last month.

“I've just come back from my first trip to India as Prime Minister and that was very successful,” said Sunak.
