NEW-DELHI: As the G-20 Summit in New Delhi, scheduled for September 9 to 10, approaches, preparations are in full swing. The event has already commenced with the arrival of distinguished guests representing G-20 member nations. Among the notable arrivals were Italian Prime Minister Giorgio Meloni and British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, who arrived in New Delhi accompanied by his wife, Akshata Murthy. The welcoming party included Union Minister of State Ashwani Chaubey.

Furthermore, Giorgia Meloni, Italian Prime Minister was cordially received by Minister of State for Agriculture Shobha Karandlaje. A total of 19 countries and the European Union will be participating in the summit, with an additional nine countries invited as guests for the convention.

Notably, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to engage in bilateral talks with 15 world leaders during the G-20 summit, three of which are slated to take place at his residence. Today, Prime Minister Modi is scheduled to hold bilateral discussions with leaders from the United States, Bangladesh, and Mauritius. In addition, the United States President Joe Biden is expected to arrive in India at 6:55 pm.

The Heads of state from five major countries are set to arrive in Delhi by the night of September 8, just ahead of the G-20 summit. Among the distinguished arrivals will be Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, US President Joe Biden, Chinese Prime Minister Li Qiang, and UAE President Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

However, it is notable that Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping will not be attending the G-20 Summit in India. Instead, Russia will be represented by its Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, in place of President Putin. This development underscores the significance of the G-20 Summit as a crucial platform for global leaders to address pressing international issues and foster cooperation among nations.
