New York: During the Indo-UK bilateral meet prior to UN General Assembly, British prime minister Gordon Brown conceded that more countries should be embedded in the discussions to solve the economic meltdown and create a new financial architecture.
He suggested that negotiations must involve G-20 countries represented by nations like India, Brazil and China apart from the G-8 members.
In return, Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh offered cooperation to UK in this hour of financial fragility.
Prime minister Brown also emphasised on the restoration of financial
confidence for a lucrative growth of the global economy.
The two countries’ talks centred on trade and economic issues.
They both agreed the need of a single monitoring mechanism to assess the global financial system.
