In his address at the inaugural session of the G20 Summit on Saturday, PM Modi said: “Today, as the president of G 20, India calls upon the world together to transform the global trust deficit into one of trust and reliance. This is the time for all of us to move together.”
Later today, PM Modi is expected to have four bilateral meetings on the sidelines of the G20 summit. He will hold one-on-one talks with UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, and the leaders of Japan, Germany and Italy. The bilateral meetings will take place after a working lunch at the G20 venue.
