Prime Minister Narendra Modi has suggested hosting a virtual G20 session towards the end of November to assess the recommendations and resolutions put forth during the recently concluded leaders’ summit in New Delhi.
During the closing session of the two-day G20 summit, PM Modi pointed out that India’s presidency of the G20 will remain in effect until November 30, allowing for more than two months fulfilling its role as the leader of the group. He added that the views, suggestions and proposals put forward by G20 country representatives during the summit are being closely looked upon as to how they can be speeded up. The proposed virtual session is where the members can review the issues that have been agreed upon during this summit, said PM Modi.

Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan thanked PM Modi for India’s gracious hospitality. US President Joe Biden said that this year’s Summit proved that the G20 can still drive solutions to our most pressing issues. Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida hailed Prime Minister Modi for providing “great leadership” of the G20, while Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov called for strengthening G20 cooperation based on “the foundation created by the Indian presidency.”
