9 August, Washington (PTI) According to a senior US source, the ongoing conflict in Ukraine would be one of the main topics of conversation during the G-20 Summit in New Delhi next month.
The G-20 summit, which will be held in New Delhi from September 9 to 10, will be attended by G-20 leaders, including US President Joe Biden.
“We continue to discuss the war in Ukraine in all of our meetings with allies and partners throughout the world. It is consistently one of the most talked-about subjects in all of our interactions, and I have no doubt that the G20 will be no different, said State Department spokesman Matthew Miller during his daily press briefing on Tuesday.
Russia attacked Ukraine on February 24, 2022, leaving thousands dead and millions displaced. Due to the war, commodities and energy costs have increased sharply, worsening food shortages and fueling global inflation.
While the West has condemned the conflict and slapped sanctions on Russia. India has underlined that diplomacy and communication are the only ways to end the Ukraine conflict.
An intergovernmental meeting of the world’s leading developed and emerging economies is known as the G20 or Group of 20.
The members account for nearly two-thirds of the world’s population, over 75% of global trade, and about 85% of the world’s GDP.
Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States, and the European Union (EU) are included in the group.
