Bangkok: External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar held talks with his Japanese counterpart Taro Kono and EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini in separate meetings here on Thursday.

Jaishankar commended Mogherini's "personal contribution" towards strengthening India-EU relations.

 

"Great meeting with @FedericaMog, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs & Security Policy @eu_eeas. Commend her personal contribution towards deepening India-EU relations," he tweeted.

The External Affairs Minister also said he had a "good exchange of views" with Kono.

"Carrying on from the Osaka #G20 meeting. Good exchange of views with Japanese FM @konotaromp," Jaishankar wrote on Twitter.

He also tweeted about his meeting with Philippines' Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr.

"Pleasure to meet a Foreign Minister with such warm sentiments for India. Thank you @teddyboylocsin," Jaishankar said.

During the ASEAN ministerial meet earlier in the day, Jaishankar said India sees ASEAN as a region of great importance and that engagement with these countries will continue to remain a critical element in New Delhi's Act East Policy.

 

The External Affairs Minister also held bilateral talks with his Thai and New Zealand counterparts and discussed issues of mutual interest, including BIMSTEC cooperation and Indo-Pacific, ahead of the ministerial meeting.
