India’s sherpa Amitabh Kant said Delhi is working with all members to ensure challenges around global debt and recession, in several parts of the world, are addressed and “one issue can’t hold back other things,” in what was perceived as a reference to the UK.
During their second meeting as the main representative of world leaders, sherpas from the G20 countries are congregating in Kumarakom and will talk about how to overcome obstacles. The G20 should continue to be politically neutral, say the sherpas as they begin negotiations about crafting the communiqué for the presidents’ summit.
India requested the G20 members’ assistance on Thursday, stating that the globe was grappling with a number of issues, including addressing poverty, climate change, and development, and that the gathering should remain “non-political.”
Amitabh Kant, the sherpa for India, said that “one issue can’t hold back other things,” in what was interpreted as a reference to the Russia-Ukraine war. New Delhi is working with all members to ensure that problems with global debt and recession, which are present in many parts of the world, are addressed.
During their second summit as the main representative of world leaders, sherpas from the G20 are congregating in Kumarakom’s backwaters to talk about how to overcome obstacles. In a press conference, Kant said, “Kumarakom would offer peace and serenity to all the delegates. Kumarakom backwaters will help us in the next days to take the challenges of the world ahead.”
After completing a number of meetings, the sherpas will start debating how to produce the communiqué for the leaders’ summit in September. According to officials, unlike in the past, all G20 nations are taking part in the discussions in India, showing a readiness to participate.
The developed world, led by the G7, has found the war in Russia and Ukraine to be a sticking point, but India has insisted that the G20 should continue to be a forum for economic and development. The Troika supported India’s stance (which includes Indonesia and Brazil with South Africa as a special invitee). According to sources, all rising nations have stated that issues including the burden of global debt, slowing global development, inflation, and climate action are crucial to them and require substantial discussion at the conference for a potential settlement.
Kant held in-depth discussions throughout the day with his counterparts from South Africa and Russia.
We are quite confident and have talked everything under the sun with Russia,” Kant remarked. He claimed that during the bilateral meetings he held with sherpas from numerous nations, including Italy, there was considerable support for the development problems.
