December 2, 2020: India has invited United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson as the chief guest for 2021 Republic Day.

The invite was extended during Prime Minister Narendra Modi's call to UK PM last week.

Johnson, on his part, has invited PM Modi to the G-7 summit in the United Kingdom next year.

The last British Prime Minister at the Republic Day parade was John Major in 1993.

In his November 27 tweet, PM Modi said that he had an excellent discussion with his friend UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson on an ambitious road-map for India-UK ties in the next decade.

“ We agreed to work towards a quantum leap in our cooperation in all areas — trade and investments, defence and security, climate change and fighting Covid-19,” PM Modi said in his tweet.
