Chinese President Xi Jinping is not expected to attend the upcoming G20 Summit in Delhi, as indicated by sources from India and China speaking to Reuters.
The G20 Leaders’ Summit is set to take place from September 9-10 at the recently constructed Bharat Mandapam, an international convention and exhibition centre located within the Pragati Maidan complex.
The upcoming summit is poised to be a significant diplomatic event, drawing numerous global leaders to India and ranking among the nation’s foremost recent international gatherings.
According to a Reuters report, two Indian officials—a Chinese-based diplomat and an official from another G20 nation—have indicated that Premier Li Qiang will likely represent Beijing at the September 9-10 G20 meeting in New Delhi.
During a recent BRICS meeting in Johannesburg, Chinese President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi engaged in a rare conversation.
Their discussions revolved around alleviating tensions in the bilateral relationship, which escalated due to clashes along their Himalayan border in 2020, resulting in the loss of 24 soldiers’ lives.
US President Joe Biden, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, French President Emmanuel Macron, Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, and other world leaders will attend the G20 Summit in India.
23 hotels in Delhi and nine in the NCR region have been designated to accommodate G20 delegates.
Officials reported Wednesday that the Delhi health department has established 80 doctors and nurses teams to care for hotel guests, with 75 teams operating in shifts.
