Three biggies of the political domain will be across the negotiation table on November 30 and December 1, as part of a trilateral meeting slated to take place alongside G20 summit currently taking place in Argentina.
The meeting will focus at devising ways to combat upcoming challenges vis-à-vis highlighting the need to strengthen international cooperation and enhance coordinated action against fugitive economic offenders and financing of terrorism.
PM Modi flew off for Buenos Aires for the 13th edition of the global summit on Tuesday.
“As in the past, I look forward to the opportunity to meet leaders on the side lines of the Summit to exchange views on bilateral matters of mutual interest,” he added.
The Ministry of External Affairs said Modi would also meet Chinese President Xi Jinping and German Chancellor Angela Merkel on the sidelines of the event. He will be in Buenos Aires from November 29-December 1.
In his departure statement issued here, Modi said through the 10 years of its existence, the G-20 had strived to promote stable and sustainable global growth. “This objective is of particular significance for developing countries and emerging economies such as India, which is today the fastest growing large economy in the world,” he said.
“I look forward to meeting leaders from other G-20 countries to review the work of G-20 in the last ten years of its existence and chart the ways and means to meet the new and upcoming challenges of the coming decade,” he said.
The PM said the participants would deliberate on the situation of global economy and trade, international financial and tax systems, the future of work, women empowerment, infrastructure and sustainable development.
The trilateral meeting, which would be an expansion of the bilateral between Trump and Abe, is part of the series of meetings Trump would have later this week on the sidelines of the G-20 Summit in Argentina. The annual meeting is being attended by leaders of the top 20 economies of the world.
However, all eyes are expected to be on two meetings that Trump would have with the Chinese President Xi Jinping and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.
Briefing reporters ahead of the G-20 Summit, US National Security Advisor John Bolton said that Trump will also have meetings with President Mauricio Macri of Argentina, President Moon Jae-In of South Korea, and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey.
