This was Prime Minister Modi's sixth G20 Summit which was held on 28-29 June.

He arrived in Osaka on Thursday 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, Modi held bilateral and plurilateral meetings with many leaders, including US president Donald Trump, Russian president Vladimir Putin and China's 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.

"PM @narendramodi leaves for Delhi after the #G20 Summit in Osaka, where he took part in a series of Summit sessions, bilateral and multilateral meetings," the Prime Minister's Office said in a tweet.
