NEW DELHI: Mexico Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard Casaubón will arrive in New Delhi on Wednesday on his maiden three-day visit to India to take stock of progress in bilateral ties.
He will also visit Mumbai, the External Affairs Ministry (MEA) said.
The Mexican foreign minister and External Affairs Minister Dr S Jaishankar will undertake a comprehensive review of bilateral relations and will also discuss international issues of mutual interest, the ministry said.
Casaubón’s visit follows the EAM’s visit to Mexico City in September last year which was the first visit by an Indian foreign minister in the last 41 years.
“This exchange of visits will consolidate and further strengthen the privileged partnership between India and Mexico,” the MEA said.
Mexico is the second-largest trade partner of India in the Latin American region. India exports auto parts, aluminium products, ceramic items, chemicals, electronic equipment, gems, steel, and electrical machinery to the Latin American state. India imports oil, machinery and electrical goods from Mexico. India and Mexico both are non-permanent members of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) for the period 2021-22.
