The last meeting between the two ministers took place in May 2019 in Bishkek on the sidelines of the SCO meeting.
Ms. Sushma Swaraj was then holding the portfolio. Months later India annexed occupied Kashmir in August leading to a complete breakdown in relations.
Since then, both countries have withdrawn their high commissioners in each other’s capital and their respective missions are operating at half strength.
Meanwhile, the media has been speculating that the two countries have been quietly negotiating for the full resumption of diplomatic relations.
