Rome, Nov 3: India and Italy signed the Mobility and Migration Partnership Agreement to
enable seamless movement of workers, students and professionals after External Affairs Minister S
Jaishankar held a comprehensive and productive meeting with his counterpart Antonio Tajani.
Jaishankar is here on the last leg of his four-day visit to Portugal and Italy.
“A comprehensive and productive meeting this evening with DPM & FM @Antonio_Tajani,”
Jaishankar posted on Twitter after the meeting.
“Conversed about deepening our strategic partnership. Agreed that potential in agro-tech,
innovation, space, defence and the digital domain should be explored," he wrote on X.
The two leaders spoke about the West Asia situation, the Ukraine conflict and the Indo-Pacific
landscape in detail.
“Appreciated Italy’s support for our initiatives and also for the G20 Presidency,” Jaishankar said.
