New York:  External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has held meetings with her counterparts from five countries on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly session here to discuss bilateral cooperation and push for India's development agenda.

Ms Swaraj held talks with the foreign ministers of Tunisia, Bahrain, Latvia, the United Arab Emirates and Denmark. "Broadly the focus was on bilateral cooperation," External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar told reporters at a news conference in New York.

During the meeting with Tunisian Foreign Minister Khemaies Jhinaoui, Ms Swaraj told him that she was looking forward to the next joint commission meeting between the two countries to be held in New Delhi on October 30-31.
 
"There are a lot of discussions on how to reinvigorate economic relationship. Sectors like pharma, textiles biotechnology, renewable energy and IT were identified for future cooperation," Mr Kumar said.

Ms Swaraj, according to Mr Kumar, felt that there was a huge potential for exporting Indian pharma products especially vaccines to Tunisia as the price of its drugs are very competitive.

In her meeting with the Denmark Foreign Minister Anders Samuelsen, they discussed when to hold the next meeting of the Joint Commission.

Denmark is also the partner country for the World Food India extravaganza, which is going to take place in the first week of November.
