SUNAK shared some light-hearted banter about being affectionately called “India’s son-in-law” due to his marriage to Akshata Murty, daughter of Infosys co-founder Narayana Murthy.
Sunak expressed his excitement at returning to India, a country he holds dear.
In a tweet, Sunak outlined his priorities for the G20 Summit, including stabilizing the global economy, building international relationships, and supporting vulnerable nations.
Addressing reporters on his flight, he said”
“It’s obviously special. I saw somewhere that I was referred to as India’s son-in-law, which I hope was meant affectionately,” according to Rishi Sunak, Prime Minister of the UK.
The UK has placed the Russia-Ukraine conflict at the top of its agenda for the summit.
A Downing Street spokesperson reiterated the UK’s commitment to supporting Ukraine and encouraging India, as the world’s largest democracy, to condemn fellow G20 member Russia.
It can be remembered that India, which is also a member of the economic bloc BRICS, has maintained its neutrality since the conflict broke out in February 2022.
To recall, India did not invite Ukraine to the summit despite its government’s insistence to attend.
