Canadian foreign minister Melanie Joly visits India for G20 meet

Less than a month since she was in New Delhi for a standalone bilateral visit,Mélanie Joly is returning to the Indian capital to participate in the G20 Foreign Ministers’ Meeting.

She will also feature at the Raisina Dialogue co-hosted by the Observer Research Foundation or ORF and the Ministry of External Affairs. Joly will be in India from Wednesday to Friday.

 It has never been more critical for G20 and Indo-Pacific partners to demonstrate our resolve to make a real, lasting difference.

Canada welcomes India’s G20 Presidency and its leadership in organizing the Raisina Dialogue,” she said in a statement issued by Global Affairs Canada, the country’s foreign ministry,on Tuesday.

She will address the acute challenges millions are facing around the world, which are compounded by Russia’s unjustifiable and illegal war against Ukraine.

 Canada continues to expand and invest in the region, creating more opportunities, and building more bridges under its Indo-Pacific Strategy,” it added.

Joly traveled to New Delhi in February for a two-day visit, highlighted by a bilateral meeting with External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar.

Joly also announced that Maninder Sidhu is in India to engage with business leaders and civil society partners on strengthening ties between Canada and India under Canada’s Indo-Pacific Strategy.
