Indian Prime Minister Modi urges G20 foreign ministers to overcome differences
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has urged G20 foreign ministers to overcome their divisions and focus on the needs of the developing world.
“We are meeting at a time of deep global divisions. We have a responsibility to those not in this room,” he told the ministers in Delhi.
India wants to use its G20 presidency to raise issues of developing countries known as the Global South. But divisions within the group over the Ukraine war will test Indian diplomacy. Last week, G20 finance ministers failed to reach a consensus on a closing statement at their meeting in Bangalore city, in the first ministerial meeting in the run up to the summit later this year.
