Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke at the 17th Group of Twenty (G20) summit in Bali, Indonesia, on Tuesday. During the session on Food and Energy Security at the summit, the prime minister talked about India’s efforts to improve food security for its citizens and the necessity of ensuring adequate food and fertiliser supply chains.

The prime minister on his official Twitter account shared details of his speech at the G20 summit.

Prime Minister Modi stated that India was promoting natural farming and popularising nutritious and traditional food grains such as millets in order to ensure long-term food security.

The prime minister also called for an end to the war between Russia and Ukraine and for diplomatic talks. In addition to this, he discussed the difficulties posed by climate change and the COVID pandemic.

PM Modi also interacted with US President Joe Biden, French President Emmanuel Macron, UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, and other delegates at the G-20 summit in Bali.

The annual G20 Summit started on Tuesday. Over the next two days, world leaders will talk about the problems caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and, more recently, by Russia’s war in Ukraine.

President Joko Widodo of Indonesia greeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the summit venue, earlier in the day, prior to the summit’s formal opening.

“The Summit will witness extensive discussions on pressing global challenges. The Prime Minister will be interacting with various world leaders during the Summit,” the Prime Minister’s Office tweeted.
