With just a month left for the G20 Leaders’ Summit — September 9 to 10 — in New Delhi, India’s energies appear channelled towards the finale capping its efforts over the past months. The 18th G20 Heads of State and Government Summit in New Delhi, which U.S. President Joe Biden, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping, among others, are expected to attend, will be “a culmination of all the G20 processes and meetings held throughout the year among ministers, senior officials, and civil societies.”

In the backdrop of the recent communal tensions and violence in Gurugram, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Thursday said that it would like to see a “return to normalcy” as the National Capital Region prepares for the G20 summit for which the heads of governments of member countries have been invited.

While India, as G-20 President and host this year, has reasons to worry about domestic unrest, including in Manipur, that has sparked international concern, G-20 negotiators are concerned about agreeing on climate change issues ahead of the September leaders’ summit, after months of wrangling over language on Ukraine. “While differences over the reference to the Ukraine conflict have been the main reason no G-20 ministerial meeting thus far has issued a joint communique, the problems over common language on climate change will compound the challenge before negotiators, as India tries to avoid hosting the first G-20 presidency that fails to issue a “Leaders’ declaration,” writes Suhasini Haidar in this analysis.
