David Cameron played down suggestions that he was involved in a “frosty meeting” with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh due to tensions over several issues.
Cameron told ITV News: “We have met many times, we get on very well.
"We both, as you’ve heard, share this view that there should be a very special partnership between Britain and India in the years ahead."
He added: “But like any good friends and any two countries that have a good and strong relationship, we raise issues of concern.
"There are things I want the Indian government to do: make it easier for insurance, banking and retail firms to invest in India.”
