“NIn an increasingly fragmented world, the role of the G20 as a forum to resolve global challenges is vital”, wrote Ursula von der Leyen on the social network and Sunday the G20 summit (group of the 19 largest economies in the world, plus the European Union).
In the same message, Von der Leyen added that the “conduction of the meeting by the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi”, will be “fundamental”.
Modi immediately responded to the community executive leader’s message and thanked “the collective support and commitment”, further stating that he hopes there will be “fruitful deliberations and collaborative actions”.

The Delhi Summit, under the strong stewardship of PM @narendramodiwill therefore be instrumental.

India hosts a G20 summit over the weekend at which US President Joe Biden will try to take advantage of the absence of his Chinese (Xi Jinping) and Russian (Vladimir Putin) counterparts to strengthen his alliances within the heavily divided bloc.
At the two-day meeting in New Delhi, strong disagreements over the war in Ukraine, the phase-out of fossil energy and debt restructuring are expected to dominate the debates.
