Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday (June 29) left for home after concluding his three-day visit to Japan where he attended the G20 Summit and met with the world leaders including US President Donald Trump.

During his stay in Osaka, Modi took part in a series of summit sessions, bilateral, and multilateral meetings. This was Prime Minister Modi’s sixth G20 Summit which was held on June 28-29. He arrived at Osaka on Thursday (June 27) and met his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe, and held wide-ranging talks on the global economy, issues of fugitive economic offenders, and disaster management and announced that the Indian President will participate in the coronation ceremony of Emperor Naruhito in October.

On Friday (June 28), Modi held bilateral and plurilateral meetings with many leaders, including US President Donald Trump, Russian President Vladimir Putin, and China’s President Xi Jinping. On Saturday, the Prime Minister met the presidents of Indonesia and Brazil separately and discussed ways to boost bilateral ties and enhance cooperation in trade and investment.

During his meeting with Indonesian President Joko Widodo, the two countries set an ambitious USD 50 billion target for bilateral trade by 2025. Modi also invited the G20 countries to join a global coalition on disaster resilience, saying disasters require quick and effective remedial measures as they invariably affect the poor the most.

“Disaster resilient infrastructure is required not only for development, but it is also necessary to combat natural calamities. In this regard I stressed upon the need of an international coalition in the G-20 conference of Buenos Aires,” he said at the G20 session on Quality Infrastructure Investment and Development Cooperation.

He invited the G20 countries to join the International Coalition on Disaster Resilient Infrastructure. “I invite the G-20 countries to join this coalition and share their experience and expertise,” the Prime Minister said.

“Disasters, natural or manmade, require quick and effective remedial measures. They invariably affect the poor the most. At the #G20 Summit, invited other nations to join the International Coalition on Disaster Resilient Infrastructure. Let us close ranks for a safer planet,” Modi said on Twitter.

Modi left Osaka after the summit was over.
