Apart from multilateral meetings, Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj participated in a series of bilateral meetings. She held bilateral talks with seven countries — China, Australia, Canada, Indonesia, Philippines, Brunei and Vietnam.
Swaraj raised the issue of South China Sea with the Chinese foreign minister. “We are not a party to this dispute. Our stand is, and has always been that the matter be sorted peacefully, ensuring free rights to navigation. We have cordial relations with China so the minister heard the Chinese point of view as well,’’ the MEA spokesperson said.
In her meeting with her Australian counterpart Julie Bishop, Swaraj discussed the impending visit of the Australian Prime Ministers to India next month as well as Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the G20 summit. The two countries also discussed the civil nuclear agreement and agreed to expedite the process.
