Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday received G20 leaders at Rajghat where they will pay tributes to Mahatma Gandhi. United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres and IMF head Kristalina Georgieva were amongst the first to reach the venue.

India is hosting the G20 Summit, scheduled on over the weekend under its Presidency amid divisions in the grouping over the Russia-Ukraine war.

World leaders, including US President Joe Biden, UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, Japan PM Fumio Kishida, Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, and UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, are in the capital for the event.

The summit is being attended by more than 30 heads of state and top officials from the European Union, invited guest countries, and 14 heads of international organisations.

The theme of this year's G20 Summit, which is taking place under India's presidency, is "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam," or "One Earth · One Family · One Future," - which is drawn from the ancient Sanskrit text of the Maha Upanishad. Essentially, the theme affirms the value of all life-human, animal, plant, and microorganism-and their interconnectedness on the planet Earth and in the wider universe.
