In his opening statement, he said, “India’s G20 presidency has become a symbol of inclusion, of ‘sabka saath’ both inside and outside the country. This has become the People’s G20 in India. Crores of Indians are connected to this. In more than 60 cities of the country, more than 200 meetings have taken place. With the sense of ‘Sabka Saath’, India had proposed that the African Union be granted permanent membership of G20. I believe that all of us agree to this proposal.”
PM Modi noted that the world has faced a new challenge of trust deficit after COVID-19. He referred to the conflict between Ukraine and Russia and said the war had deepened the trust deficit further. (ANI)
