New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday pitched for a collective voice against terrorism, extremism and radicalisation as he hosted a delegation of British MPs here.

While interacting with the eight-member delegation, he said the relations between India and UK have strong bipartisan support in both countries.

He called for enhanced interactions between the Parliamentarians of both countries, the statement said.

Describing India and UK as natural partners in the global fight against terrorism, he urged the visiting Parliamentarians to "continue to raise their collective voice against terrorism, extremism and radicalization".

Modi fondly recalled his own visit to the UK in November 2015, and the visit of Prime Minister Theresa May to India in November last year.

The Prime Minister also welcomed the celebration of 2017 as the India-UK Year of Culture.

Location: India, Delhi, New Delhi
