Terrorism to feature in G20 Summit

New Delhi: With people across the globe pledging to stand shoulder to shoulder with the people of France, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the lead speaker at the inauguration of the G-20 Summit is expected to table the issues of terrorism besides climate change and global cooperation to dig out black money.

“India’s concerns are known… There can be no compromise on the issue of terror… India’s longstanding position is that there is no good or bad terror and all forms of terrorism are unacceptable and must be fought by the global community as well as each and every country,” a source from Modi’s delegation told reporters. India has been the strongest voice for long at international forums on the issues related to terrorism, he said.

Narendra Modi is also expected to apprise the G-20 leaders that India did not support discussions on origin-specific terror, the source added.

Following the brutal attack, French President Francois Hollande cancelled his visit for the G20 meeting.

However, Turkey has been pressing for a discussion on the Syrian crisis at the 10th G20 Summit.

Notably, the Syrian refugee catastrophe is bigger than the crisis during the World War II.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, British Prime Minister David Cameron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are also expected to attend the summit. Chinese President Xi Jinping, Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, Brazil President Dilma Rousseff and Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong have already arrived in Antalya for the summit.

BRICS nations – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa – will also hold talks to review the progress of their two recent initiatives – the BRICS bank and the contingent reserve arrangement on the sideline of the G20 summit.
