New Delhi, March 1
Senior diplomat Manpreet Vohra has been appointed as India’s next High Commissioner to Australia, the Ministry of External Affairs said on Monday.
Vohra, a 1988-batch Indian Foreign Service (IFS) officer, is at present Ambassador of India to Mexico. He is expected to take up the assignment shortly, the MEA said.
Vohra’s appointment comes at a time when the India-Australia ties are at an upswing and the two countries are stepping up cooperation particularly in the Indo-Pacific region. PTI
