This week, Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar will attend the ASEAN-India summit in Cambodia
This week, Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar will attend the ASEAN-India summit in Cambodia, which will review the strategic partnership between the two sides and look at trade, investment, and connectivity cooperation.
His three-day trip to Southeast Asia begins Friday, and he’ll also attend the 17th East Asia Summit.
According to the MEA, India’s Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar will attend the ASEAN-India Commemorative Summit and Cambodia’s 17th East Asia Summit from November 11 to 13.
MEA said the Vice President would be accompanied to Cambodia by External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar. Additionally, Dhankhar will have bilateral meetings with Cambodian leaders during his trip and with leaders from a few other countries.
Rather than the ASEAN-India summit on November 12, the East Asia summit is on November 13. In its capacity as ASEAN chair, Cambodia is hosting these summits.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi virtually attended the ASEAN-India and East Asia Summits last October.
“The Vice President will attend the ASEAN-India Commemorative Summit in Phnom Penh on November 12. The ASEAN-India Friendship Year commemorates the 30th anniversary of ASEAN-India relations, according to the MEA.
India and the 10-nation grouping have been warming up lately. There’s also a lot of common ground in their vision of a free, peaceful Indo-Pacific.
Several countries, including the US, China, Japan, and Australia, are ASEAN dialogue partners.
The vice president will also have bilateral engagements with the Cambodian leadership while he’s here. In addition to the summits, he will hold bilateral meetings with other leaders,” the MEA said.
It added that the Vice President would visit Siem Reap on his way home from Phnom Penh to see what India is doing at Cambodian heritage sites to preserve and restore them.
