British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has left for Indonesia for the annual G20 summit. Sunak has vowed to “remove Putin’s regime” from the G20 this year over the Russia-Ukraine conflict. Let us tell you that apart from Britain, Russia is also included in the G-20 countries. India will chair this grouping of the world’s 20 largest economies from December 1.
First meeting with Modi after becoming Prime Minister:
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is also likely to meet Sunak on the sidelines of the G-20 summit. This will be Rishi Sunak’s first meeting with Modi after becoming the UK Prime Minister last month. Before leaving for Bali, Sunak said in a statement: “Vladimir Putin’s wars have caused devastation and destroyed lives around the world. The international economy has been thrown into turmoil.”
Sunak gave this statement before leaving for Bali:
Sunak further said this G20 summit will not be as business as usual. We will call on sovereign forums such as the G20 to remove Putin’s regime for the sake of international cooperation and respect. Contrary to Putin’s disruption, Britain and its allies will work together to solve the economic challenges ahead and improve people’s lives.
Sergey Lavrov will attend the summit, not Putin:
Sunak will face Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at the G20 plenary. All members are expected to attend on Tuesday. According to reports, Downing Street had prepared for the summit assuming that Russian President Vladimir Putin would be there. But Moscow revealed last week that it would not attend and would instead send Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
Russia’s action is set to be discussed in the meeting:
Annual meetings were started after the 2008 economic crisis. The meeting next week will discuss the economic challenges posed by the Russia-Ukraine crisis since 2008. Russia’s action is set to be discussed in the meeting of the G-20 member countries. Western economies believe that it has caused chaos in the global economy. Energy and food prices are skyrocketing.
