He will speak with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi “at the end of the month” to discuss the “ambitious” trade association that the two countries wish to adopt, the note adds.

The two hope to organize a face-to-face meeting later this year, the British government said. Johnson’s visit was due to begin on April 26.
