The LAC stalemate in Ladakh and the new cozying up of the four members of the Quadrilateral Security Dialog are staying focuses on Sino-Indian ties and both would figure in Jaishankar's discussions with India. Different issues of significance for India would be the Afghan harmony measure, particularly in the light of a total drawdown of US and partnered powers from the country. Australia this week announced that it would close its international safe haven in Afghanistan due to the "undeniably ensure security climate" in Kabul as unfamiliar soldiers pull out. The ramifications of the changed situation in the grieved nation are of extraordinary importance to New Delhi.
