G20 Summit, a ground for many important meetings

520

The G20 summit in Hamburg is going to be a ground for many important meetings. The meeting between the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Chinese President Xi Jinping in one important meeting which is set take place in the midst of a military standoff between the two countries. The other equally important meeting is between British Prime Minister Theresa May and American President Donald Trump. This meeting is also supposed to happen on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Hamburg. Both the leaders face tough challenges on the world stages with May facing uncertainties in the Brexit process and many of Trump’s aides under enquiry for probable ties with Russia.  The other important subject that will dominate in the G20 will be the intercontinental ballistic missile testing by North Korea. This test of North Korea has already provoked Trump to declare that he had run out of patience with Pyongyang government. Trump will meet German Chancellor Angela Merkel on the eve of the summit and he will hold talks with the Russian President on 7.7.2017, as per reports.

President Trump has already touched down in Europe starting his four-day trip in Warsaw and here he will be hosted by Polish President Andrzej Duda. The Chinese delegation would be meeting informally leaders of five major emerging countries like Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa- on the sidelines of the summit. Chinese President Xi Jinping had already left for state visits to Russia and Germany before the summit. Narendra Modi and Xi Jinping have already met at the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation summit in Astana in June.  The border situation is worsened after the meeting in Astana and the world is eagerly waiting for this meeting between the two leaders in Germany since both the sides have already cautioned about a possible war like situation in the Doklam area, where Chinese tried constructing a road there.  This area situated at the strategic tri-junction between India, China and Bhutan. China and Bhutan already have an ongoing territorial dispute in this region.
