London, Apr 18 (IBNS): After concluding his Sweden trip, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday reached the United Kingdom to attend the Commonwealth Summit in capital city London, media reports said.

Modi, who is on a three-nation visit, was received by UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson at the airport.

The PM is likely to meet UK Prime Minister Theresa May during his stay in London.

PM Modi and his Sweden counterpart Stefan Löfven met on Tuesday and recalled their Joint Statement issued in Mumbai in 2016.

Both Prime Ministers called for greater unity and stronger international partnership to counter terrorism, disrupt terrorist networks and financing, and to prevent violent extremism.

They emphasized that the global counter terrorism legal framework should be regularly updated to address the changing threat of terrorism with strength, and underscored that any measures taken to counter terrorism comply with international law. In this regard both countries called for an early finalisation of the draft Comprehensive Convention on International Terrorism (CCIT).
