London: New British Prime Minister David
Cameron will meet his Indian counterpart in Toronto on Sunday
on the sidelines of the G-20 Summit, his first after assuming
office last month.

Cameron, who heads the Conservative-Liberal Democrats
coalition government, will meet Singh to take forward his
administration`s commitment made in the Queen`s Speech to
`work to establish a new special relationship with India.`

This will be the first meeting between the two
leaders, since Cameron took over as the British Prime Minister
last month.

Like the previous Labour Government, the new coalition
government is also keen to build a special relationship with
India.

During the meeting, the two leaders are likely to
discuss bilateral issues and the situation in the region.

Besides Singh, Cameron is scheduled to meet US
President Barack Obama, Russian President Dmitri Medvedev and
Chinese President Hu Jintao.

Cameron and foreign secretary William Hague have
accepted invitations to visit India, but dates have not yet
been finalised.

It is the first time in 13 years that India is dealing
with Conservative leaders in government, after John Major lost
power in 1997.
