He visited the country from May 16-17 for the 16th round of Foreign Office Consultations with Philip Barton, Permanent Under-Secretary, Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO).

"During the visit, he also held meetings with MOS Foreign Office Lord Tariq Ahmad, MOS for Defence Procurement James Cartlidge, NSA Sir Tim Barrow, UK Home Office Permanent Secretary Matthew Rycroft, Chief Trade Negotiator of the UK Crawford Falconer and Senior Foreign Policy Advisor to the UK Prime Minister Professor John Bew," read a statement issued by the Ministry of External Affairs.

The Foreign Secretary and Permanent Under-Secretary undertook a detailed review of the Roadmap 2030.

"Welcoming good progress across all pillars, they underscored their interest to raise the level of ambition and agreed to further strengthen bilateral cooperation including in trade and economic, defence and security, science and technology, people-to-people ties and mobility, energy, and climate change, as well as health," the statement said.
