New Delhi: India said on Thursday that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will hold meetings with leaders of countries like Canada, Japan, and the UK on the sidelines of the G20 Summit in Hamburg but ruled out any scheduled bilateral meet with Chinese president Xi Jinping.
"The prime minister is visiting Hamburg from 6-8 July for G-20 Summit. His pre-planned bilateral meetings on the sidelines of the summit are with Argentina, Canada, Italy, Japan, Mexico, ROK (Republic of Korea), the UK and Vietnam," External affairs ministry spokesperson Gopal Baglay said when asked about Narendra Modi's schedule in Hamburg.
"In addition, he will also participate in the BRICS Leaders' meeting. There is no change in the prime minister's schedule," he said, suggesting that there was no scheduled bilateral meeting between Modi and Xi.
