Prime Minister Narendra Modi today congratulated United Kingdom’s new PM Theresa May saying, “Congratulations to @theresa_may on taking over as the new UK PM. Looking forward to working with her for stronger India-UK ties @Number10gov.”

The Prime Minister took to Twitter to express his hope for stronger India-UK ties. He also lauded UK’s former PM David Cameron. “I also appreciate the significant contribution of @David_Cameron in strengthening India-UK ties,” PM Modi tweeted.

Theresa May, who has been Britain’s interior minister in the past, has promised to champion social justice and rise to the challenge of leading the country out of the European Union, after the historic Brexit vote.

May, 59 assumed office after an audience with Queen Elizabeth and drove straight to her new home of 10 Downing Street, vacated hours earlier by David Cameron, whose resignation after the vote to leave the EU brought her to power.

May must now try to limit the damage to British trade and investment as she renegotiates the country’s ties with its 27 EU partners. She will also attempt to unite her divided Conservative party and a fractured nation in which many, on the evidence of the vote, feel angry with the political elite and left behind by the forces of globalisation.
