On March 1, Blinken will travel to New Delhi to participate in the G20 Foreign Ministers’ Meeting, which will focus on strengthening multilateralism and deepening cooperation on food and energy security, sustainable development, counter-narcotics, global health, humanitarian assistance and disaster relief, and gender equality and women’s empowerment, State Department Spokesperson Ned Price said on Thursday.
“He (Blinken) will meet Indian government officials and civil society to reaffirm our strong partnership,” Price said.
