Vienna, Jan 2 (PTI) External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Monday held talks with the Foreign Ministers of the Czech Republic, the Slovak Republic, and Austria in the Slavkov format on regional and global issues of mutual interests.

‘Very useful meeting in the Slavkov format with Foreign Ministers Alexander Schallenberg of Austria, Jan Lipavsky of Czech Republic and Rastislav Kacer of Slovak Republic. Conversed about India-EU relations, our neighbourhoods, Indo-Pacific and the Ukraine conflict,’ Jaishankar tweeted.

‘The openness of our discussions reflected the comfort of our relationship,’ said the minister, who arrived here from Cyprus on the second leg of his two-nation tour.

The Slavkov or Austerlitz format, created in 2015, is a cooperation format between Austria, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.

On the sidelines of the Slavkov format, Jaishankar separately met with Foreign Minister Lipavsky of Czech Republic.

‘Discussed further intensification of our bilateral partnership and expanding multilateral cooperation,’ Jaishankar tweeted.
