PM Modi Visits Papua New Guinea: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in Papua New Guinea that the Global South countries were most affected by Corona. There were already challenges related to climate change, natural disasters, hunger, poverty and health, but now new problems are arising such as fuel, fertilizer and pharma. There are also constraints in its supply. Those whom we considered our own, came to know that they were not with us when needed. In times of difficulty, the old adage ‘A friend in need is a friend in deed’ proved true.
PM Modi said that India considers it its responsibility to convey the concerns, expectations and aspirations of the Global South to the world through the G20. This was my effort in the last two days at the G7 summit as well. India has put forward ambitious targets on the issue of climate change. I am glad that we are working on these fast.
