Carrier Strike Group in Mumbai symbolic of Indo-Pacific tilt: UK Minister

Foreign Secretary of United Kingdom Liz Truss complimented the Royal Navy flagship aircraft carrier, the first Queen Elizabeth Class carrier, visiting Mumbai.

The minister also highlighted the symbol of the flagship carrier as the Indo-pacific tilt and UK's plan to deepen defence ties with "key partners".

"Fantastic to be on board aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth in Mumbai as she visits India.

As the UK's Carrier Strike Group's flagship, she symbolises: Global Britain, our Indo-Pacific tilt, our plan to deepen security and defence ties with key partners," Truss tweeted.

"The ship is the spearhead of the Carrier Strike Group (CSG), a symbol of the UK's world-leading defence capability, whose visit to Mumbai is a clear sign of our growing defence and maritime co-operation with India. While in India, the CSG is taking part in the most demanding exercise ever between undertaking the UK and India, involving all three military service," according to the British High commission release.
