India will work with other G-20 members to address serious issues of debt, economic growth, food and energy security and particularly of the environment, said External Affairs Minister, S. Jaishankar on Sunday. 

While speaking at the general debate of the 77th session of the UN General Assembly, he said that India’s steadfast commitment to South-South cooperation is by now well established and well recognised. 

"Our approach is based on principles of mutual respect and national ownership with a commitment to sustainable development for all," Jaishankar added. 

As we begin the G-20 presidency this December, we are sensitive to the challenges faced by developing countries. The reform of the governance of multilateral financial institutions will continue to be one of our core priorities, the minister stated. 

Meanwhile, India is going to hold the G-20 presidency from 01 December 2022 to 30 November 2023. Also, G20 economies currently account for 85 per cent of global GDP, 75 per cent of international trade and two-thirds of the world population.
