Published in The Saudi Gazette on 29 - 06 - 2021

UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab met on Tuesday with India's External Affairs Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar on the sidelines of the G20 Foreign Affairs Ministers' meeting held in Italy.
During the meeting, they discussed bilateral relations between the two countries and ways to enhance them as well as a number of global and regional issues and COVID-19 pandemic.
Jaishankar, who arrived in Italy from Greece on the second leg of this two-nation tour on Monday, met Raab on the sidelines of the G20 ministerial meetings.
"Met UK Foreign Secretary @DominicRaab this morning. Reviewed the progress of our bilateral Road Map. Discussed the state of the world, regional issues, COVID and Climate Action," Jaishankar tweeted.
The external affairs minister later in the day congratulated his Italian counterpart Luigi Di Maio on the "successful G20 Foreign Ministers' Meeting in Italy".
"Discussed taking forward our bilateral relationship. Look forward to seeing him in India," Jaishankar said in another tweet.
The minister also held a cordial meeting with his Saudi counterpart Prince Faisal Bin Farhan during which he discussed the COVID situation and urged early resumption of flights.
"Cordial meeting with Saudi FM @FaisalbinFarhan. Discussed the COVID situation and urged early flight resumption. Talks also covered our Strategic Partnership and regional situation," he tweeted.
He also met his Mexican counterpart Marcelo Ebrard C and agreed to step up bilateral cooperation and work together in the multilateral arena.
"Our pharma cooperation is particularly important in the times of COVID," Jaishankar said on Twitter.
He met Japanese Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motegi and exchanged views on Quad, 2+2 and COVID. "A typical #G20 conversation - with FM @moteging of Japan. Spoke about Quad, 2+2 and COVID," Jaishankar tweeted.
The Quad or Quadrilateral alliance consisting of the US, India, Japan and Australia has been resolving to uphold a rules-based international order in the Indo-Pacific amid growing Chinese assertiveness in the region.
Jaishankar later met Canadian Foreign Minister Marc Garneau and discussed issues of bilateral concerns. "Useful conversation with FM @MarcGarneau of Canada on Indo-Pacific, trade & economic cooperation and bilateral concerns. Agreed to remain in touch," he tweeted.
