James Cleverley has been made Home Secretary, replacing Suella Braverman, who was previously Foreign Secretary.
Jaishankar congratulated Cameron, who resigned as British Prime Minister in June 2016 in the wake of the ‘Brexit’ (separation from the European Union) referendum, for his sudden return to the important post.
Jaishankar is in Britain on a five-day official visit. The foreign minister said they discussed various topics including ongoing global conflicts and the Indo-Pacific region during their bilateral talks at the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) in London.
“Delighted to meet British Foreign Secretary David Cameron this afternoon on his first day in office. Congratulated him on his appointment. Discussed the strategic partnership between the two countries,” Jaishankar said in a post on ‘X’.
Jaishankar said he also exchanged views with Cameron on the situation in West Asia, the Russia-Ukraine conflict and the Indo-Pacific region. “Look forward to working with him,” the minister said.
Cameron was Prime Minister of Britain from 2010 to 2016 and led the Conservative Party from 2005 to 2016.
Jaishankar also met former Prime Minister Tony Blair. “It was a pleasure to meet former British Prime Minister Tony Blair,” he said. We discussed bilateral relations, the situation in West Asia and Africa.
The meetings took place after Jaishankar discussed tea with Sunak on Sunday at 10 Downing Street, the residence and office of the British Prime Minister. Jaishankar presented Sunak with a bat signed by cricketer Virat Kohli and an idol of Lord Ganesha.
