In a statement, the Ministry of External Affairs said, ” the visits to the Republic of Korea and Japan, two of our major partners, will impart further momentum to bilateral exchanges and set the agenda for future cooperation.”

External Affairs, S. Jaishankar will first visit Seoul from March 5–6, to co-chair the 10th India Republic of Korea Joint Commission meeting (JCM) with his Korean counterpart Cho Tae-yul.
