G-20 New Delhi Consensus reached on issuing manifesto, PM Modi said - this is the time to move together for the welfare of the world
India has reached a consensus among the member countries to issue the New Delhi Joint Declaration at the Bharat Mandapam of Pragati Maidan in New Delhi. Many world leaders participated in this meeting. During this, India's efforts to get African countries represented in the G-20 bore fruit and PM Modi announced the inclusion of the African Union.
Breaking the huge deadlock in the G-20 summit, India has reached a consensus among the member countries to issue a joint declaration in New Delhi.
On the first day of the conference, at around 3.30 pm, PM Narendra Modi met US President Joe Biden, UK PM Rishi Sunak, Australia's PM Anthony Albanese, Japan's PM Fumio Kishida, China's PM Li Chiang, Indonesia's President Widodo, Saudi Arabia. This was announced in front of senior global leaders like Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Brazilian President Luiz Lula da Silva.
India took over the presidency of G-20 in December 2022 and since then there has been apprehension whether the manifesto would be issued with consensus this time or not. Even a joint statement could not be issued in the ministerial meetings held six times in the last seven months.
For this, the biggest reason has been said to be the ongoing tension between America and Western countries and China and Russia due to the Ukraine war, but India has made this possible by maintaining strong diplomatic dialogue.
On Saturday, September 09, 2023, the meeting of the heads of state of the 20 most powerful countries of the world began under the chairmanship of PM Narendra Modi. The meeting started along the same lines that India had emphasized in adopting the issues as a priority in global diplomacy and economy after becoming the President of this group in December 2022.
For example, India's efforts to get African countries represented in the G-20 bore fruit and PM Modi announced the inclusion of the African Union.
PM Modi raised the issue of lack of mutual trust in the world due to the Ukraine dispute, China-US tension, and some other crises and gave the message that when the world can defeat Corona, it can also overcome the crisis in mutual trust. As the chairperson of the G-20, India has left no stone unturned in conveying the message that it has the capability to lead successfully on the global stage.
PM Modi said, "After COVID-19, a huge crisis of lack of trust has come in the world. The war has deepened this trust deficit. Today, as the President of G-20, I call upon the whole world That together we first convert the global trust deficit into a belief. A trust. This is the time for all of us to work together for the global good."
Along with this, the PM also clearly explained where there is a crisis of confidence and why it is necessary to remove it. Modi said, "There are challenges related to turmoil in the global economy, discrimination between North and South, the distance between East and West, food, fuel and fertilizer management, terrorism, and cyber security, health, energy, and water security. These challenges We will have to move towards a concrete solution."
