Feb 22: External Affairs Minister Dr S. Jaishankar (EAM) will pay bilateral visits to the Republic of Korea and Japan on 05-08 March 2024.

Mr. Cho Tae-yul, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Korea. During the visit, EAM is also expected to meet with Korean dignitaries, heads of think tanks and the Indian community.

India – Republic of Korea Special Strategic Partnership has expanded to diverse areas of cooperation, which include trade, investments, defence, education, S&T, and culture. The JCM is expected to comprehensively review the entire gamut of bilateral cooperation and explore avenues for further strengthening it. It will also provide an opportunity for the two sides to exchange views on regional and global issues of mutual interest.

EAM will then visit Japan from 06-08 March 2024 for the 16th India-Japan Foreign Ministers Strategic Dialogue with the Foreign Minister of Japan H.E. Ms. Yoko Kamikawa. The two Ministers are expected to discuss issues of bilateral, regional and global importance, and exchange views on cooperation for a free, open, inclusive, peaceful and prosperous Indo-Pacific. India-Japan Special Strategic and Global Partnership has further deepened in the last decade in areas such as defence and digital technologies, semiconductor supply chains, clean energy, high-speed rail, industrial competitiveness and connectivity. EAM’s visit and meetings in Tokyo will provide strategic guidance to our functional cooperation in these areas.

EAM will also participate in the first Raisina Roundtable@Tokyo. The Roundtable is a key step towards enhancing track 2 exchanges between India and Japan. He is expected to interact with business leaders, think tanks and academia, building upon strong cultural and people-to-people ties.

EAM’s visits to the Republic of Korea and Japan, two of our major partners, will impart further momentum to bilateral exchanges and set the agenda for future cooperation.
