Nirmala Sitharaman dismisses reports of being snubbed by her British counterpart as ‘baseless’

A media report on Sunday claimed that India is ‘spitting blood’ after British Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson ‘snubbed’ his Indian counterpart, Nirmala Sitharaman, by turning down a request to hold talks in London last month. As reported by The Sunday Times, Williamson declined to meet Sitharaman in the three-day window of bilateral talks between 20th and 22nd June. However, India’s Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman took to Twitter and dismissed the claim as ‘baseless’.

She said a mutually convenient time is being worked out for the meeting between two heads and she looks forward to the same.

Her British counterpart, Gavin Williamson, Secretary of State for Defence, too took to Twitter and said he looks forward to the meeting.

A meeting between the heads of two countries is being worked out and is expected to take place in coming weeks.
