During the Munich Security Conference in Germany, India's foreign minister S Jaishankar held discussions with his British counterpart David Cameron regarding bilateral cooperation, as well as global and regional issues.

Jaishankar was attending the 60th edition of the conference, renowned as the world's leading forum for international security debates. Scheduled to participate in a panel discussion titled 'Growing the Pie: Seizing Shared Opportunities,' alongside German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock and US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Jaishankar also held discussions with Peru's Foreign Minister Javier Gonzalez-Olaechea, focusing on UN reform and economic cooperation, before his meeting with Cameron.

"Started my engagements at #MunichSecurityConference by meeting UK Foreign Secretary @David_Cameron. A good discussion on our bilateral cooperation as well as global and regional issues," Jaishankar posted on his official X handle along with a photo of the meeting.

"Also exchanged views on the cricket match," the minister said referring to the India-England test match at Rajkot, given the love both the countries share for what is known as the 'gentleman's game'.

Additionally, Jaishankar joined a ministerial lunch discussion titled 'Vishwa Mitra: Bridging Divides' at the Munich conference. This session, co-hosted by the Indian Embassy and the Observer Research Foundation (ORF), saw participation of various dignitaries.
