Lekhi to visit to Colombia, New York
The Ministry of External Affairs said Lekhi will call on the top leadership of Colombia and hold talks with Vice President and Foreign Minister Marta Lucia Ramirez during her visit to the country from September 4-6.
Colombia is a key country in Latin America and India's ties with it have been expanding particularly, in the economic and commercial sphere. The MEA said India's bilateral trade with Colombia for the year 2020-21 stood at USD 2.27 billion, which is a significant increase from USD 1.85 billion over 2019-20 despite disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. During her visit to New York from 7-9 September, Lekhi will represent India at the UN Security Council Ministerial Open Debate on 'Transitions' under the agenda item 'United Nations Peacekeeping Operations' on September 8.
