‘India will take up racism issue with the UK when required’: S Jaishankar

External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar responded to alleged racism charges in the UK during the Rajya Sabha session on Monday.

Jaishankar was responding to a question raised by BJP MP Ashwini Vaishnav.

Jaishankar said that the issue will be taken up with the UK when required.

"As a friend of the UK, we also have concerns about its reputational impact," Jaishankar said.

"What I do want to say is that we have strong ties with the UK (and) we will take up such matters with great candour when required," he said.

"I do want to say that as a land of Mahatma Gandhi, we can never ever turn our eyes away from racism wherever it is.

Particularly so when it is in a country where we have such a large diaspora," he added.
