The world must find a way to return to the path of ceasefire and diplomacy in Ukraine, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said at the G20 summit in Bali, citing the horrors of World War II.

Here are the top 10 points for this big story

  1. “In the last century, the Second World War caused chaos in the world. After that, the leaders of that time made serious efforts to take the path of peace. Now it is our turn,” said the Prime Minister.

  2. The Prime Minister met US Presidents Joe Biden and French President Emmanuel Macron on the sidelines of the summit, where the global food crisis, climate change and the conflict in Ukraine are high on the agenda.

  3. The prime minister said “the need of the hour is to show concrete and collective resolve to ensure peace, harmony and security in the world”. “I am confident that next year, when the G20 meets in the holy land of Buddha and Gandhi, we will all agree to deliver a strong message of peace to the world,” he said.

  4. India is poised to take over the chairmanship of the G20, a powerful bloc that accounts for 85 percent of global GDP and 75 percent of world trade, and will host the summit next year.

  5. The Prime Minister highlighted the global challenges of the war in Ukraine, climate change and the Covid pandemic and their impact on global supply chains. “There is a crisis of essential commodities, essential commodities all over the world. The challenge for the poor citizens of every country is more severe,” he said.

  6. “Nor should we hesitate to admit that multilateral institutions such as the United Nations have failed in these matters. And we all failed to make proper reforms in them. Therefore, today the world has greater expectations from the G20,” he added.

  7. Highlighting how India has ensured food security for its citizens like several other countries during Covid, the Prime Minister noted the global shortage of fertilisers. “Today’s fertilizer shortage is tomorrow’s food crisis, for which the world will have no solution. We need to build a mutual understanding to keep the manure and food grain supply chain stable and secure.”

  8. Talking about energy security, he said that India’s security on this front is important for global growth as it is the fastest growing economy in the world. “We must not encourage any restrictions on energy supplies and stability in the energy market must be ensured,” he said.

  9. “India is committed to clean energy and environment. By 2030, half of our electricity will be generated from renewable sources. Time-bound and affordable financing and the sustainable supply of technology to developing countries are essential for an inclusive energy transition,” said the Prime Minister.

  10. The Prime Minister said that during India’s chairmanship of the influential global bloc, efforts would be made to reach a global consensus on all such burning issues.
