India’s Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar is to visit on Thursday where a series of agreements are to be signed, ranging from migration and military cooperation to overseeing accession to the International Solar Alliance.

Jaishankar and Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides will hold talks centred on bilateral relations within the overall scope of EU-India ties.

Jaishankar will also be informed on Turkey’s actions against Cyprus along with other regional and international issues of mutual concern, according to a press release from the foreign ministry.

The two ministers are also set to sign a memorandum of understanding on defence and military cooperation, along with Cyprus’ accession to the International Solar Alliance which deals with the expansion of solar energy.

Elsewhere, Interior Minister Nicos Nouris will sign a statement of intent with Jaishankar to launch negotiations aimed at achieving an agreement on migration and movement – likely meaning deportations following rejected asylum claims.

On Friday, the two foreign ministers will address the Cyprus-India business forum hosted in Limassol.
