PRIME Minister Narendra Modi on Friday met a host of world leaders, including US President Joe Biden, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, on the sidelines of the G7 Summit here in the southern resort town of Italy. “It’s always a pleasure to meet @POTUS @JoeBiden. India and USA will keep working together to further global good,” Modi said in a post on X along with some photographs of their interaction.Modi held talks with Japanese Prime Minister Kishida on the margins of the summit and is believed to have discussed issues of mutual and regional interests.
Modi also met Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau at the G7 Summit. This was their first face-to-face meeting after Trudeau claimed that the Indian Government agents were involved in the killing of a Khalistani separatist in Canada last year. Canada has arrested four Indian nationals in connection with the case. “Met Canadian PM Justin Trudeau at the G7 Summit,” Modi tweeted. The ties between India and Canada came under severe strain following Trudeau’s allegations. India has dismissed Trudeau’s charges as “absurd” and “motivated.” “Pleased to meet @UN Secretary General, Mr. @antonioguterres in Italy,” Modi said in a post on X.
Prime Minister Modi had a “good meeting” with UN chief Guterres, his office said. Modi also met Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Brazil President Lula da Silva and UAE President Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan.“The interactions in Italy continue...Delightful conversation with President @LulaOficial, President @RTErdogan and His Highness Sheikh @MohamedBinZayed,” Modi posted along on X with a photo with them.
