Indian External affairs minister S Jaishankar will be meeting US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Thursday amid the ongoing diplomatic crisis between India and Canada. The duo has already met during the Quad ministerial meeting where foreign ministers of Japan and Australia were also in attendance. The Canada issue did not come up at that meeting as it was not a bilateral meeting, State Department spokesperson Mathew Millers said. “We’ve made clear, we’ve raised this; we have engaged with our Indian counterparts on this and encouraged them to cooperate with the Canadian investigation, and we continue to encourage them to cooperate,” the spokesperson said.
