The world is in crisis, and it is impossible to predict how long this state of insecurity will last, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Thursday, referring to various global challenges such as conflict, war, and terrorism.
In his opening remarks at the Voice of the Global South virtual summit, Modi expressed concern about rising food, fuel, and fertiliser prices, the economic impact of COVID-19, and natural disasters caused by climate change.
“It is clear that the world is in crisis,” he said in the presence of several leaders from developing countries. He added that predicting how long the “state of instability” will last is difficult.
“We, the Global South, have the most invested in the future The majority of global challenges were not created by the Global South, but they have a greater impact on us “He stated.
Modi stated that India has always shared its developmental experience with our “brothers of the Global South.” As India assumes the presidency of the G20 this year, it is natural that our goal will be to amplify the voice of the Global South, he added.
