UK, India Reaffirm Ties

The British and Indian prime ministers took to the stage at a packed Wembley Stadium in London. The leaders sought to emphasize the countries' close cultural and economic ties. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi delivered a speech Friday night to an estimated 70,000 people in London, shortly after his British counterpart, David Cameron, espoused the virtues of the UK-India relationship, German news agency DPA reported.
Standing before an audience waving Indian flags and Union Jacks, Modi called the day "a historic day for a great partnership."
Modi was in the country to promote bilateral ties between India and the UK. The culmination of the trip was Friday's Bollywood-style extravaganza at London's Wembley Stadium, which also coincides with the traditional Indian celebration of Hindu Diwali.
Before Modi took to the stage, the audience was treated to a lavish spectacle featuring the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Scottish bagpipers.
