The Conservative Party leader was quoted as saying to in an interview to CNN-IBN.
“We are two great democracies that face many of the same challenges. We need more economic growth; we need more investment in trade. We both have to fight extremism and terrorism. These are shared challenges that Britain and India should face together.”
The British Prime Minister, who is seeking re-election in the 2015 polls, also sought to woo the vast Indian population living in UK by calling for greater ties between the two countries.
Cameron indicated that Britain did not intend to intervene in the Kashmir dispute between India and Pakistan by saying, “It is the engagement between the two nations and that was for these countries to lead these debates on this issue and not for others to interfere.
