Last month, Jaishankar and Blinken met on the sidelines of the Quad summit in Tokyo. Both leaders had discussed the Ukraine conflict and other regional and global issues.

The agenda for the G20 Foreign Ministers' meet is to be dominated by the war in Ukraine.
Since the war began in Ukraine, India has been calling for diplomacy and dialogue to address the ongoing conflict.
Moreover, the External Affairs Minister also met UAE Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Senegalese Foreign Minister Aissata Tall Sall.
During the summit which is set to take place from July 7 to 8, the participating foreign ministers will hold talks on issues of contemporary relevance, such as strengthening multilateralism and current global challenges including food and energy security, read a release by the Ministry of External Affairs.
The External Affairs Minister's participation in the G20 FMM will strengthen India's engagement with G20 member states. As a G20 troika member and as the incoming G20 President, India's role in the upcoming FMM discussions assumes even greater importance, the official statement read. (ANI)
