Jaishankar and Blinken discussed the “ever-strengthening” India-US relationship and the global situation.
External Affairs Minister of India S Jaishankar held a meeting with the US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on August 4 in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. They discussed the situation in Sri Lanka, ongoing issues in Myanmar and the rising tension between China and Taiwan.
The high-profile visit of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Taipei has also evolved into a major concern in world politics during the dialogues in the ASEAN conclave which took place in the Cambodian capital, Phnom Penh.
The meeting was held on the sidelines of the ASEAN Ministerial. India and US are strong proponents of the ASEAN conclave. "We're both strong proponents of ASEAN centrality. We have a shared vision together for a free and open Indo-Pacific that we work on in so many different ways every single day," Blinken stated.
“We have some immediate challenges that we're both concerned with, including the situation in Sri Lanka, Burma (Myanmar), and other hotspots. So I look forward to once again being able to go through a number of these issues with my friend and then we'll head over to meetings,” he added.
"A warm conversation to start meetings on sidelines of ASEAN Ministerial in Phnom Penh. Discussed the ever-strengthening India-US relationship and the global situation with US Secretary of State @SecBlinken," Mr Jaishankar tweeted.

US and India share a multi-faceted and cooperative relationship with each other. China is a common topic of concern to both countries and their relations can be dominative not only in South-Asian politics but in global politics as well.
