New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today congratulated Theresa May for taking over as the Prime Minister of United Kingdom and said he looked forward to working with her for stronger bilateral ties.

The Prime Minister took to Twitter to express his hope for stronger India-UK ties.

"Congratulations to @theresa_may on taking over as the new UK PM. Looking forward to working with her for stronger India-UK ties," Modi tweeted.

He also praised the outgoing Prime Minister David Cameron, saying he had contributed significantly in strengthening the India-UK ties.

"I also appreciate the significant contribution of @David_Cameron in strengthening India-UK ties," Modi added.

Theresa May on wednesday became Britain's second woman prime minister after Margaret Thatcher, vowing to forge "a bold new positive role" for the UK in the world post-Brexit.

May, 59, took charge as Prime Minister of Britain after she had her audience with Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace.
