Kadir will co-chair the 6th India-Malaysia Joint Commission Meeting (JCM) with S Jaishankar -- on whose invitation he has made his first India visit -- on November 7 in the national capital.

"The Joint Commission Meeting will review the progress of Enhanced Strategic Partnership with Malaysia in the areas of political, defence, security, economic, trade and investment, health, science and technology, culture, tourism and people-to-people ties, and will also discuss regional and multilateral issues of mutual interest," the MEA said in a statement.
