The representatives of the US, Russia, China, Britain, France, and representatives of the 20 main world economies were present at the conference. Prime Minister was speaking in the inauguration session of the conference. He added we are meeting when there is a great divide in the world.

India’s Foreign Minister Dr S Jaishankar

India’s Foreign Minister Dr S Jaishankar said in his address at the conference. The G20 nations have a great responsibility. This is the first time that we have come together during this challenging situation in the world. There is fear of a recurrence of the Covid pandemic, the Russian- Ukraine War, Climate change, and numerous other dangerous situations. We may not have a united opinion on many of these issues, but we have to get together and find solutions to these problems.
