US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken held bilateral talks with External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on the sidelines of the G20 Foreign Ministers' Meeting.
"Pleased to meet US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on G20 Foreign Ministers' Meeting sidelines. Opportunity to review bilateral ties and discuss global issues," S Jaishankar tweeted.
PTI reported that the Ukraine conflict and India's agenda for the G20 figured in the talks. Also, Antony Blinken said that G20 meeting of foreign ministers in India has been marred by Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
"I went to the G20 today with two imperatives: First, to ensure that the G20 — with India at the helm — advances our shared goals, and second, to demonstrate how the US, together with our partners, is acting to meet the needs of the world. We succeeded at both," Blinken said ahead of the meet.
