Indian Foreign Minister S Jaishankar said India’s G20 presidency was “challenging” because it came amid “rapid” East-West polarization and a “very deep” North-South divide. Nevertheless, India did it. Jaishankar said this at an event on the theme ‘India-UN for the Global South: Partnership for Development’ on the sidelines of the 78th session of the United Nations General Assembly here on Saturday. “We met a few weeks after the G20 summit in New Delhi, which was held on the theme of ‘One Land, One Family, One Future,'” he said. It was a challenging summit. His presidency was indeed challenging.

“It was challenging because we were facing a very sharp East-West polarization as well as a very deep North-South divide,” the foreign minister said. But we had a very strong belief as the chair of the G20 to ensure that this organization, from which the world has a lot of expectations, can return to its core agenda of global growth and development,” he said. “We believe that the New Delhi Summit of the G20 in many ways laid the groundwork for the international community to consider its development prospects. Jaishankar asserted that while India’s G20 presidency is a few more months away, “before and certainly before the G20 presidency, we will be very much a partner, a partner, a collaborator so that others can develop.” You can get inspiration on how to deal with the challenges.

Membership of the African Union is a must.

When it comes to South-South cooperation, “we have tried to communicate,” Jaishankar said. He also said that one of the most important outcomes of the G20 is the membership of the African Union grouping. Jaishankar said it was fitting that India began its presidency of the G20 by holding the ‘Voice of the Global South Summit’, an exercise in which 125 countries from the South participated. He said the exercise made it clear to India that the “Global South” is not only suffering the consequences of infrastructural inequalities and historical burdens, but also the effects of economic contraction, the devastating consequences of COVID-19, and tensions. Also dealing with Conflicts. The term ‘Global South’ is used to refer to developing and least developed countries, mainly located in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

The G-20 emphasizes the urgent needs of the Global South.

“Therefore, the onus is particularly on us that together with all our G20 members, we are able to focus the attention of the G20 on the immediate and urgent needs of the Global South,” Jaishankar said. Sessions Chair Dennis Francis said at the event. That India’s G20 presidency marked a milestone by including the African Union in the grouping, a strong symbol of solidarity and cooperation among the Global South. “It is certainly a matter of pride for me to follow in the footsteps of the first woman President of the General Assembly, Vijayalakshmi Pandit, whom India proudly entrusted to the United Nations,” he said. But including the moon landings, have shown the power of science and technology and what can be achieved when all nations have access to it.’ (language)
