O Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez will miss the G20 summit, to be held on September 9 and 10 in New Delhi, India, after testing positive for Covid-19.
“This afternoon I tested positive for Covid-19 and I will not be able to travel to New Delhi for the G20 summit.
Spain will thus be “magnificently represented by the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation, Nadia Calviño, and by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation, José Manuel Albares”.
The leaders of all G20 countries will be joined by those of nine other states (Bangladesh, Egypt, Mauritius, Netherlands, Nigeria, Oman, Singapore, Spain and United Arab Emirates). Chinese leader Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin are also expected to be absent.
This afternoon I have tested positive for COVID and will not be able to travel to New Delhi for the G20 Summit.
