Britain to continue trade talks with India

Britain will continue trade negotiations with India despite "serious allegations" that the Indian government may be linked to Hardeep Singh Nijjar's murder.

The UK government is in "close touch" with its Canadian partners about the allegations, the Prime Minister's official Spokesman said.

"It's right that the Canadian authorities are looking into them, but I'm not going to get ahead of that work that needs to take place now," he added.

The spokesman said that work on trade negotiations would "continue as before", adding that the government was "not looking to conflate" trade negotiations with "other issues".
