World leaders have arrived in India for the G20 Summit, which starts tomorrow in Delhi. At 6.55 p.m., Union Minister of State VK Singh met Biden, who is visiting India for the first time since becoming President, at Delhi's Air Force One airport. Bilateral meetings will take place between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and  Joe Biden. Given that Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping will not attend the summit, the meeting between the two leaders is essential. Aside from the G-20 summit tomorrow, the Prime Minister will meet with leaders from the United Kingdom, Japan, Germany, and Italy. Bola Ahmed Tinubu, President of Nigeria, and Pravind Kumar Jugnath, President of Mauritius, are among those who have landed in Delhi.

World leaders including Japan's Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, Australia's Prime Minister Anthony Albanis, and Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman will also arrive in Delhi.

Meanwhile, stringent security has been put in place in the national capital and the Bharat Mandapam, where the G20 summit is being held, in connection with the 18th annual G20 summit, one of the biggest international summits to be hosted by India. The conference will take place over three days.
