On Tuesday, PM Modi addressed the G20 working session on Food and Energy security. In the event, he made his stance clear on the long-standing Russia-Ukraine war. The PM urged both sides to favour dialogue and diplomacy in Ukraine and said, “we have to find a way to return to the path of the ceasefire.” Reminding the leaders about the devastation World War 2 caused, he said “Over the past century, the Second World War wreaked havoc in the world. After that, the leaders of that time made a serious effort to take the path of peace. Now it’s our turn.” PM Modi during his visit to Bali also met the Indian diaspora in Indonesia and talked about the long-standing relationship between India and Indonesia.
