New York (USA), September 24 (ANI): External Affairs Minister Dr S Jaishankar on September 23 attended “India-UN for Global South: Delivering for Development” event. During his address, Dr Jaishankar said, “It was appropriate that we started our G20 presidency by convening the voice of the Global South Summit, an exercise which involved 125 nations of the South. During the course of that exercise and the deliberations which took place through the various ministerial tracks and engagement groups, it was very clear to us that the global south, in addition to bearing the consequences of structural inequities and historical burdens, was plagued by the impact of economic concentration, was suffering from the devastating consequences of the COVID and was beset by conflict, tensions and disputes which have stressed and distorted the international economy.”
