BEIJING, Sep 5 (PTI): China on Tuesday said it has supported India in hosting this year’s G20 Summit
and it’s ready to work with all parties to push for the success of the high-profile global conference in
New Delhi this week.
A day after the Chinese foreign ministry announced that Premier Li Qiang will represent China at the
G20 Summit instead of President Xi Jinping, the ministry spokesperson told reporters here at a
regular briefing that China always attaches high importance to the G20 grouping and actively
participates in relevant activities.
”We support India in hosting this year’s summit and stand ready to work with all parties to make the
G20 Summit a success,” she said on the conference to be held in New Delhi on September 9-10.
The G20 is the premier forum for international economic cooperation, she said. Without mentioning
the boundary dispute, the spokesperson said that China-India relations have been stable on the
whole and "our two sides have maintained dialogue and communication at various levels.
”The continued improvement and growth of China-India relations serves the common interests of
the two countries and two peoples. We stand ready to work with India to further improve and
advance bilateral relations,” she added.
The ties between India and China have been under severe strain since the deadly clashes in eastern
Ladakh’s Galwan Valley in June 2020.
The Indian and Chinese troops are locked in an over three-year confrontation in certain friction
points in eastern Ladakh even as the two sides completed disengagement from several areas
following extensive diplomatic and military talks.
India has been consistently maintaining that peace and tranquillity along the Line of Actual Control
(LAC) were key for normalisation of overall ties.
Premier Li will be representing China at the ASEAN Summit in Indonesia from September 5 to 8. He
will travel to India after attending the East Asia summit in Jakarta.
US President Joe Biden, French President Emmanuel Macron, Australian Prime Minister Anthony
Albanese, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, Japanese Prime Minister
Fumio Kishida and Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva are among the G20 leaders who have
already confirmed their participation in the G20 Summit.
The G20 member countries represent around 85 per cent of the global GDP, over 75 per cent of the
global trade, and about two-thirds of the world population.
The grouping comprises Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India,
Indonesia, Italy, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkey, the
UK, the US and the European Union. PTI
