Speaking at ABP Network’s Ideas of India Summit here, Truss also there was a need to fast-track Ukraine’s NATO membership. “We need to be on the front foot about freedom and democracy.

“They also use the power of economic coercion to try and influence the way people think,” Truss said. She said India's voice is going to be “incredibly important” being the world's largest democracy.

Truss said she is a great supporter of trading more with allies like India. “When I was trade secretary, I kicked off the free trade negotiations with India,” she said.

“I also want to see us work together with like-minded countries to create what I describe as an economic NATO,” she said.
