The United States is committed to ensuring that India has a successful G20 this year, the White House said on Wednesday.
Responding to a query about US President Joe Biden’s view over the achievement of G20 under India’s presidency, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that the President is looking forward to continuing their work with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in this week’s G20 Summit.
“Look, we commend Prime Minister Modi, in his leadership of the G20 this year, and we are committed to helping ensure that India has a successful G20 host, as they host this year. And so that’s going to continue to be our commitment during Minister Modi’s visit here in June,” Pierre said.
“As you’ve covered very closely, the president and Prime Minister shared their determination to deliver on shared priorities at the summit. And so the President is very much looking forward to continuing that work with the Prime Minister and other leaders later this week as we head out tomorrow,” she added.
US President Joe Biden will travel to India for the G20 Leaders’ Summit which is scheduled to take place on September 9 and 10 at the state-of-the-art Bharat Mandapam Convention Centre at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.
