India on Thursday urged the G20 grouping to send a collective message affirming its resolve to address the complex global challenges, including that of food and energy security, amid an increasingly bitter rift between the West and the Russia-China combine over the Ukraine conflict.

In his remarks at the G20 foreign ministers’ meeting, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar, without mentioning the Ukraine conflict, said the grouping must find common ground and provide direction to the world though there are some “matters of sharp differences”.

“Let us remind ourselves that this grouping bears an exceptional responsibility. We first came together in the midst of a global crisis and are today, once again, actually confronting multiple on,” he said.

External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar had a meeting with US Secretary Of State Antony Blinken as wrote in a tweet, “Pleased to meet US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on G20 Foreign Ministers’ Meeting sidelines. Opportunity to review bilateral ties and discuss global issues.”
