Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in a statement issued by his office that the previous 17 presidencies of the Group of Twenty had yielded “important results,” adding that he “will benefit from those achievements and build on them further.”
He noted that India would work through the group to “enhance the global sense of unity”.
“We will encourage honest talks among the most powerful countries on mitigating the dangers posed by weapons of mass destruction and enhance global security,” Modi said, according to the statement.
