S.M. Krishna

Minister for External Affairs, India

After the resignation of New Delhi’s point man on Africa, Shashi Tharoor, in May, External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna is taking an even more hands-on role in the cultivation of India-Africa ties. In mid-March, he opened the 6th Confederation of Indian Industry-Export-Import Bank Conclave on India-Africa cooperation and then attended the Group of 15 summit in Tehran, Iran, a gathering of Asian, African and Latin American developing nations.

India expects support for its own ambitions for a UNSC seat in return.
