@PMOIndia
Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday held telephonic conversation with his British counterpart Boris Johnson during which he raised the issue of violence against members of the Indian diaspora celebrating Independence Day outside the Indian Mission in London.

According to a statement issued by the Prime Minister's Office, Mr. Modi drew Johnson's attention to the challenges posed by vested interests pursuing their motivated agenda, including by violent means. 

The statement said, Prime Minister Johnson regretted the incident and assured that all necessary steps would be taken to ensure safety and security of the High Commission, its personnel and visitors. 

Violent clashes took place outside the Indian High Commission when thousands of people converged there for pre-planned protests and counter-demonstrations on 15th of August.

 During the conversation, Prime Minister Modi also pointed out that terrorism had plagued all parts of the world, including India and Europe. He stressed the importance of effective steps to ward off the threats posed by radicalization, violence and intolerance.

Mr. Modi congratulated Mr. Johnson on his election to the high office and expressed his readiness to work with him for strengthening the strategic partnership between India and the United Kingdom. Mr. Johnson also congratulated Mr.Modi on the latter's emphatic electoral victory for the second term in his office.
