Secretary Antony J. Blinken and Indian External Affairs Minister Dr. S. Jaishankar Before Their Meeting

SECRETARY BLINKEN:  Good afternoon, everyone.  It’s a pleasure to welcome my friend and colleague, Foreign Minister Jaishankar, here to the State Department, back to Washington.  We’ve had very good discussions over the last weeks – of course at the G20, in New York at the General Assembly – and I’m looking forward to pursuing them this afternoon.

EXTERNAL AFFAIRS MINISTER JAISHANKAR:  Well, thank you, Tony.  Good to be back here, and we, of course, had the prime minister here this summer.  We thank the U.S. for all the support at the G20 summit.  And I actually look forward to seeing you in Delhi for the 2+2.  So, thank you.

SECRETARY BLINKEN:  I look forward to that as well.  Thanks, everyone.
