After successful UK visit, PM Modi reaches Turkey for G-20 Summit

Antalya: After successfully concluding his three-day tour of the United Kingdom, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday night reached the resort town of Antalya in Turkey for the G-20 Summit.

In Antalya, PM Modi is likely to raise issues related to terrorism, climate change and global cooperation to unearth black money, among others. The Paris attack and the war in Syria are likely to dominate the talks.

The Summit of leaders from 20 top economies of the world is expected to be attended by US President Barack Obama, Russian President Vladimir Putin, British Prime Minister David Cameron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Chinese President Xi Jinping, among others.

As world leaders congregate in this Turkish resort town, Friday night's ghastly terror attacks in Paris, the ongoing war in nearby Syria, the migrant crisis in the region and the need for strengthening the crackdown against terrorism will take the centre stage.

French President Francois Hollande cancelled his visit for the G20 meeting in the wake of the attack.

During his UK tour, PM Modi held a series of bilateral meetings, signed business deals worth $14 billion and addressed a 60,000-strong Indian diaspora at the Wembley Stadium. The Indian prime minister along with a high-level official and business delegation had arrived in London on Thursday.

After the talks, British Prime Minister David Cameron told reporters that he will look forward to a close cultural and economic ties with India. He also promised UK's support for a permanent seat at the UN for India.
