Earlier today, PM Abbasi held meetings with the teams of Peek Vision, a world leader in smartphone technology and training healthcare workforce in developing countries to eliminate preventable blindness and poor vision, and CBM, an NGO working in the field of disability globally for over 100 years with a major focus on eye care.

Prime Minister will also call on Prince of Wales.

Modi is likely to interact with Gaston Browne, Prime Minister of Antigua & Barbua, Mauritian Prime Minister Pravind Kumar Jugnauth and Keith C Rowley, Prime Minister of Trinidad & Tobago.

Clearing the air on speculations that India and Pakistan will hold a bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in London, the Indian high commissioner to the United Kingdom (UK) has reiterated and reaffirmed that no bilateral meeting has been planned between India and Pakistan.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi met Queen Elizabeth II on Wednesday at Buckingham Palace in London and discussed matters of mutual interest, reported PTI.

The heads of Govt are lined up to meet every two years.

An Indian prime minister will attend the Commonwealth summit, which is held every two years, after a hiatus of almost a decade, having last attended the 2009 CHOGM in Trinidad and Tobago.

The Indian government has said that this symbolises the country's wider efforts to step up its role across global forums. Witnessing this great gathering of seventy-one countries and territories and meeting their athletes in the Games Village was, above all, a moving reminder of the strong and affectionate bonds which we all share.
