Both sides reviewed the progress of bilateral cooperation during their Foreign Office Consultations

India and Canada have agreed to continue working towards renewing the momentum in relations between the two countries.

The matter was discussed during the India-Canada Foreign Office Consultations (FOCs) held in New Delhi on Monday.

Both sides reviewed the progress of bilateral cooperation in domains such as political, security, trade & investment, education, science & technology, consular and mobility, said the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) after the meeting.

"They agreed that the two countries should continue work to renew the momentum in relations and convene meetings of bilateral dialogues and working groups," the MEA added.

The FOCs also provided a timely opportunity to exchange assessment on regional, multilateral and global issues of mutual interest, the MEA said, describing the discussions as "cordial and friendly".

The Indian delegation was led by Secretary (East), Ministry of External Affairs, Saurabh Kumar. The Canadian delegation was led by Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Global Affairs Canada Marta Morgan.

Both sides agreed to continue their productive consultations, said the MEA, adding that the next FOCs will be held in Ottawa at a mutually convenient date.

The last FOCs were held in March 2021 in a virtual mode.
