LONDON: Prime Minister Narendra Modi refused to sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Britain agreeing to facilitate the return of thousands of illegal Indian immigrants because the UK is not offering Indians easier access to its visas, it has been revealed. Sources at the Indian high commission in London told TOI that the bilateral agreement on the return of illegal Indians, which junior home minister Kiren Rijiju had pencilled in January, was not signed in April when Modi visited London because India “did not see any progress on the British side of the agreement”.

伦敦:由于英国并未放宽对印度人的签证要求,印度总理纳伦德拉·莫迪(Narendra Modi)拒绝与英国签署关于协助召回数以万计非法印度移民的谅解备忘录(MoU)。驻伦敦的印度高级专员公署告知本报,关于召回非法印度移民的双边协议已由初级内政部长Kiren Rijiju于今年1月拟定,而不是由莫迪于4月份访问伦敦期间签署的。因为印度“没有看到英方有任何关于协议事宜的进展。”

The deal was meant to have been the centrepiece bilateral agreement signed during Modi’s visit. British Prime Minister Theresa May had told Modi in India in November 2017 that “the UK would consider further improvements to its visa offer if, at the same time, we can step up the speed and volume of returns of Indians with no right to remain in the UK”.

该协议本应是莫迪访问期间欲意签署的重要双边协议。2017年11月,英国首相特蕾莎•梅(Theresa May)在印度时曾对莫迪表示:“如果印度能协助其加速召回在英国非法滞留的大量印度移民,英国将考虑进一步改善其签证系统”。

On Wednesday, a home office spokesperson said, “The MoU initialled by minister of immigration Caroline Nokes and Indian minister of state for home affairs Kiren Rijiju on 11 January… paves the way for a quicker and more efficient process for documenting and returning Indian nationals who are in the UK illegally.”

内政部发言人周三表示:“由移民部部长卡罗琳诺克斯和印度内政部长Kiren Rijiju 于1月11日草签的谅解备忘录,将为以后更快更有效地记录和召回在英国的非法印度移民铺平道路。”

A senior Indian high commission official told TOI: “When May went to India she said progress on returns would help progress on UK visas for Indians, but we are not seeing that. We are seeing the denial of spousal visas and cancelling visas on small pretexts and a hostile environment. We need to see some easing of migration, especially of short-term visas such as for Indians students and those coming to work for companies.”

一印度高级专员公署官员告知本报:“特蕾莎梅在印访问期间曾表示,加速召回非法移民将会有助于英国放宽对印度签证,但是我们没有看到这一点。我们看到的是对配偶签证的拒签,并且以一些托词和敌对环境为借口取消签证。我们希望看到的是移民政策有所放宽,尤其是短期签证,比如针对印度学生和在英工作人员的签证。

“We want a better visa system. If they are offering it to the Chinese, why not to Indians?” he said, referring to the two-year multiple-entry visit visa which Britain offers Chinese nationals. Access to visas is expected to be a key bargaining chip when the UK negotiates a free trade agreement with India after Brexit. Another reason for not signing the pact was that the timelines in the MoU were not realistic for getting confirmation of people’s identities," the official said.

“我们想要一个更好的签证系统。如果他们能提供给中国人,为什么不给印度人呢?”该官员说道,意指英国向中国公民提供的两年多次往返签证。“脱欧之后英国需与印度协商签署自由贸易协议,放宽签证将作为关键的谈判筹码。另外一个不签署协议的原因是,按照备忘录中的时间表来确认非法移民的身份是不现实的”该官员提到。

The proposed timelines were that the Indian authorities would have 70 days to verify a suspected illegal Indian in the UK without ID and 15 days to confirm the identity of someone with ID.

拟议的时间表规定,针对那些没有身份证明而涉嫌在英国滞留的非法移民,印度当局将有70天的时间来核实其身份,对于有身份证明文件的则需要在15天内核实。

Appreciate Mr.Modis befitting answer and not bending to British obstinacy.

They have looted INDIA anyway for 200 years, so, now it is time to claim the INDIAN self-esteem back if not the wealth.

不能屈服于固执的英国人。

他们掠夺印度已经快200年了,不能夺回财富,我们也该重拾印度的自尊了
