This call comes a few months after the two ministers, during a virtual meeting in February this year, undertook a detailed review of bilateral ties.
A statement by the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said that both leaders had appreciated the upward trajectory in the bilateral ties and had agreed to maintain the momentum of high-level exchanges, economic cooperation and people-to-people ties.
They had also discussed possibilities of cooperation to counter the COVID-19 pandemic.
