Prime Minister Modi is seen welcoming US President Joe Biden, Saudi Arabia Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, his Bangladesh counterpart Sheikh Hasina and other world leaders.
The Prime Minister’s voiceover playing in the background says India, as G20 president, calls upon the world to turn the global trust deficit into trust. “This is a time for us to stand united. So Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas and Sabka Prayaas can be the mantra that shows us the way,” he says.
The Prime Minister underlined that this is a time when years-old challenges are demanding new solutions.
Starting his address with a tribute to the hundreds killed in a massive earthquake in Morocco, the Prime Minister went on to announce African Union’s inclusion into G20 as a permanent member.
