New Delhi, January 19

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will host the first meeting of the India-Central Asia Summit with the participation of the Presidents of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan in a virtual format on January 27.

This will be the first engagement of its kind between India and Central Asian countries at the level of leaders, said a MEA news release. The five Central Asian Presidents were to attend the Republic Day celebrations as chief guests, but rising Omicron cases led to them opting for a virtual summit with PM Modi.

“The summit is a “reflection of India’s growing engagement with the Central Asian countries, which are a part of India’s extended neighbourhood,” it added.

The PM has visited all Central Asian countries in 2015.
