You can see PM Narendra Modi warmly invites the President of African Union & Comoros Azali Assoumani to join other G20 leaders as African Union becomes a permanent member of the G20. This is indeed a key outcome of G20 this year.

Diplomats of G20 member states had said the African Union’s inclusion is not expected to lead to a change in the name of the grouping.

Finding consensus among G20 members has become increasingly difficult in recent years with deep divisions on the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

In his inaugural remarks during Session-1 of the G20 Summit on ‘One Earth‘, the prime minister called upon the world to transform the global trust deficit into one of trust and reliance.

“This is the time for all of us to move together. In this time, the mantra of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas, Sabka Prayas‘ can be the torch bearer for us,” PM Modi said.
