India urged G20 to move away from russia's war against Ukraine and focus on global poverty.
This was stated by India's negotiator Amitabh Kant at the G20 summit.
According to Amitabh Kant, who is presently G20 Sherpa of India during its Presidency year, by focusing on the war in Ukraine Europe has led to a deadlock on the issue of growing global poverty and debt. Kant compared "one war" to the fact that 200 million people have gone below poverty line.
"Nutrition has been impacted, health outcomes have been impacted, learning outcomes have been impacted, people have become stunted and wasted and we are just concerned with one russia and Ukraine war," Kant said.
He stated that "the world needs to move on and Europe needs to find a solution to its challenges."Amitabh Kant G20 russia ukraine war ukraine front lines
