At the exhibition, Jaishankar also shared photographs with First Lady Beatriz Gutiérrez Müller, Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard and Defence Minister Luis Cresencio Sandoval.

This is Jaishankar's first visit to Mexico as the External Affairs Minister.

He was received by Minister of Finance and Public Credit Rogelio Ramírez de la O with whom he discussed Mexico’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
