EAM S Jaishankar holds talks with visiting Guyanese VP, energy ties discussed

New Delhi: External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Tuesday held talks with visiting Guyanese Vice President Bharrat Jagdeo, during which the two sides discussed greater opportunities in energy and trade ties.

In tweets, he said that the two sides agreed that greater frequency of India and Caribbean contacts will further galvanize ties.

“Delighted to meet Hon. Dr. Bharrat Jagdeo, Vice President of Guyana during his India visit.

“Discussed our historical relationship and greater opportunities in contemporary partnership, especially in trade, energy, agriculture, skills and people to people ties.

“Also agreed that greater frequency of India-CARICOM contacts will further galvanize ties.

“Assured him that concerns of the Global South will be strongly represented during India’s G20 Presidency.”

The visit of Vice President Bharrat Jagdeo comes a month after the visit of Guyanese President Irfaan Ali to India, during which the two sides had reportedly discussed long-term purchases of oil from the Caribbean country.

President Ali, who was chief guest at the 17th Pravasi Bharatiya Divas, had met with Petroleum Minister Hardeep Singh Puri and discussed India’s participation in crude and gas explorations blocks in his country.

The two sides had agreed to set up two technical teams to take forward the discussions, and it was decided that the contours of future cooperation would be finalized during the visit of Vice President Bharrat Jagdeo to India in February.

President Ali had also met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the sidelines of 17th PBD in Indore.
