Rinkevics is undertaking a visit to India to attend Raisina Dialogue 2020, the fifth edition of the annual geo-political summit, which is set to begin here on January 13. He is among the 13 Foreign Ministers participating in the three-day mega event.

Rinkevics is scheduled to attend a roundtable meeting with members of the Doctor Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Foundation at the Constitution Club of India and hold a bilateral meeting with External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar before participating in the inaugural session of the Dialogue tomorrow.

On Wednesday, Rinkevics will participate in the penal debate on Competing Nationalism Universal Norms: Street Power in 21st Century Diplomacy and attend a meeting with the Chairman of Lok Sabha External Affairs Committee. He will also pay a courtesy call to Prime Minister Modi before departing for his country on Thursday.

Every year, global leaders in policy, business, media, and civil society are hosted in New Delhi to discuss cooperation on a wide range of pertinent international policy matters.
