“Nice to meet EU HRVP @JosepBorrellF. Agreed to consult closely on Afghanistan. Discussed challenges faced by EU and India. Noted the progress in our cooperation after the May 8 Summit,” Jaishankar tweeted.

Highlighting the importance of regional connectivity at a conference in Tashkent earlier today, Jaishankar noted that the challenges of politics, vested interests, and instability can be formidable impediments to its realisation.

“Economic growth is universally prevented by three Cs — connectivity, commerce and contacts. All three need to come together to ensure regional cooperation and prosperity,” he added. (ANI)
