India prepares for G20, UN Security Council Presidency

India will formally assume the G20 presidency, thereby beginning a unique opportunity for the country to contribute to the global agenda on pressing issues of international importance.

During the G-20 Presidency, India will hold about 200 meetings in 32 different sectors in multiple locations across India. The G-20 Summit to be held next year would be one of the highest-profile international gatherings to be hosted by India.

Earlier this month, Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled the logo, theme and website of India's G-20 Presidency via video conferencing. The lotus in the logo symbolises India's ancient heritage, faith and thought.

India's Permanent Representative to the UN Ruchira Kamboj met UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and discussed the priorities and program of work ahead of India's December Presidency in the UN Security Council.

"Today, delighted to call on Secretary-General @antonioguterres. Discussed the priorities and programme of work ahead of India's December Presidency in the @UN Security Council," Ruchira Kamboj tweeted.

India assumes the monthly rotating Presidency of the UNSC from December 1.
