PM Modi Stated at the G20 Summit that India’s Energy Security was Crucial for Global Growth
On November 15, in Bali, Indonesia: On Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that India has the fastest-growing economy in the world and referred to its energy security as “essential” for global growth.
“Given that India has the fastest-growing economy in the world, energy security for the entire planet is crucial. Energy supply limitations must not be encouraged, and market stability must be guaranteed. During his speech to the G20 working session on food and energy security, PM Modi stated that India was dedicated to clean energy and the environment.
Clean energy and the environment are important to India. We’ll be using renewable energy to produce 50% of our electricity by 2030.For an equitable energy transition, time-bound, inexpensive financing as well as a sustainable supply of technology to developing nations are crucial, the PM continued.
Additionally, PM Modi stated that India will endeavor to achieve a global agreement on all of these concerns while holding the G-20 presidency.
We must find a way to get back on the path of the truce,’ PM Modi said earlier in the speech, reiterating India’s long-standing support for discussion and diplomacy in Ukraine.
Additionally, he added, “I have emphasized time and time again that we need to find a way to get Ukraine back on the path of diplomacy and a ceasefire.”
“Over the previous century, the Second World War created damage in the world,” Prime Minister Modi, who arrived in Bali on Monday, said. Following that, the authorities at that time made a concerted effort to follow the path of peace. It’s now our turn. It is our responsibility to establish a new global order for the post-Covid era. To ensure global peace, harmony, and security, concrete and group resolution is urgently required.
Invoking India as the “holy land of Buddha and Gandhi,” Prime Minister Modi expressed his confidence that the G20 members will all agree to send a clear message of peace to the world at their meeting the following year.
In the opening of his speech, PM Modi praised Indonesia for its G-20 leadership in the face of difficult global conditions. The Covid pandemic, the developments in Ukraine, and the attendant global issues, he said, have all wreaked devastation on the planet.
Supply chains around the world are in shambles. There is a global shortage of necessities and necessities goods. Every country’s poor residents face a greater struggle. Already, just getting by was difficult for them. They lack the financial resources to handle the double whammy.They don’t have the financial resources to deal with it because of the double whammy. We should also not be reluctant to admit that multilateral organizations like the UN have failed to address these concerns. And we have all failed to change them in a way that is appropriate. Because of this, the G-20 is held to higher standards by the globe today, increasing the group’s importance, according to PM Modi.
When discussing the difficulties encountered during the pandemic, the PM stated that India has secured the food security of its 1.3 billion residents. Food grains were also provided at the same time to numerous underdeveloped nations. In terms of food security, the current fertilizer shortage is also a major crisis.
The world will not have a solution, he continued, and the fertilizer shortage “is tomorrow’s food problem.”
According to PM Modi, all G20 nations must develop a consensus in order to keep the supply chain for both manure and food grains secure.
“In India, we are encouraging natural farming and re-popularizing wholesome and traditional food grains like millets in order to achieve sustainable food security. Additionally, millets can end world hunger and malnutrition. Next year, we must all participate in the International Year of Millets with tremendous enthusiasm.
US Fighter Jets Shoot Down Octagonal Object Near Canadian Border
The Pentagon has reported that US fighter jets have shot down an unidentified flying object in the Midwest, near the Canadian border. The object was flying at an altitude of 20,000 feet and posed no military threat, however, it may have interfered with domestic air traffic. A statement by Pentagon spokesperson, Patrick Ryder, noted that the incident was the latest in a series of similar events, including a suspected Chinese surveillance balloon that raised security concerns in North America.
The Pentagon reported that a third unidentified flying object was shot down over North America in just three days, and the fourth in a week. The object was brought down over Lake Huron on the US-Canada border at 2:42 pm local time on February 13th, according to a statement by the Pentagon. The recent activity of defence has been sparked by the appearance of a white balloon that was spotted over the US in late January. The balloon hovered over the country for days, leading the US to suspect it was a Chinese surveillance balloon.
On February 4th, fighter jets brought the balloon down off the coast of South Carolina. The latest object that was shot down appeared to have an octagonal structure, with strings hanging from it but no clear payload, as reported by an official to the press.
The object, detected near military sites in Montana, led to the closure of US airspace by the Pentagon due to its proximity to sensitive sites.
General Glen VanHerck, head of the US Air Force responsible for securing US airspace, informed the media that the military was unable to identify the nature, source, or means of staying aloft for the three recent unidentified objects.
General VanHerck, who is in charge of North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) and Northern Command, stated that they referred to the objects as “objects” and not balloons for a specific reason. He added that he wouldn’t exclude any explanation, including the possibility of extraterrestrial involvement.
Legislators are calling for more information regarding the objects that have been shot down. US legislator Debbie Dingell, among other Michigan lawmakers, has stated the need to know the origin, purpose, and reason for the increase in the frequency of these objects.
Heino Klinck, a former US deputy assistant secretary of defence for East Asia, believes the government should be more transparent about these incursions. Klinck mentioned that the challenge for the government is to release information without compromising sources and methods, but it is high time for them to say something. The latest object was first detected over Montana on Saturday evening but was initially thought to be an anomaly.
However, it was detected again on Sunday over the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, moving over Lake Huron. US and Canadian authorities restricted airspace over the lake as fighters were scrambled to intercept and identify the object. Meanwhile, Canadian authorities are searching for the wreckage of the object shot down over the Yukon region.
Joe Biden Believed to Have Invited PM Modi for State Visit to US
It has been reported that the President of the United States, Joe Biden, has extended an invitation to the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, for a state visit this summer. The invitation has been accepted in principle, and both sides are now working on scheduling a mutually convenient date. Currently, the visit is in the early stages of logistical planning.
India is set to host a series of events in the lead-up to the G-20 summit in September. This includes several events aimed at showcasing the country’s progress and achievements. Given the significance of the G-20, the state visit by President Biden is expected to be a significant event that will highlight the strong partnership between the two countries.
The visit will also provide an opportunity for the two leaders to engage in discussions on a range of important issues, including trade, investment, and regional security. India and the United States share a strong relationship, built on shared values and mutual interests. The state visit will further strengthen this relationship and deepen the ties between the two nations.
The visit is expected to generate significant media coverage and will likely be seen as a significant event in the region. Both sides are expected to take advantage of the opportunity to highlight their respective achievements and to set the tone for future cooperation.
The state visit is expected to last for a minimum of a couple of days and will involve several key events such as a joint address to the US Congress and a state dinner at the White House. Prime Minister Modi has a busy schedule ahead, including participation in the G-20 summit, domestic and international commitments, and campaigning for state assembly elections later in the year.
Sources, who remain unnamed due to the sensitive nature of the matter and restrictions on discussing it publicly, have not disclosed the timing and messenger of President Biden’s invitation to Prime Minister Modi. Biden previously hosted French President Emmanuel Macron for his first state dinner in December.
A senior official from the Biden administration has stated that the President values the partnership between India and the United States, which is seen as critical for addressing global challenges and advancing shared interests.
In conclusion, the state visit by President Biden to India this summer is expected to be a significant event that will reinforce the strong partnership between the two countries and deepen the ties between their people. Both sides are working to ensure that the visit is a success and will contribute to the continued growth and prosperity of both nations.
US Plans to End Public Health Emergency for Covid in May
The Biden administration has announced its plan to end the coronavirus public health emergency in May, signaling a shift in the perception of the pandemic’s severity. The expiration of the emergency will bring both symbolic and practical changes, as millions of Americans have received free Covid tests, treatments and vaccines that may not be available without cost after the emergency ends.
The White House intends to keep the emergency in place for a few more months to provide adequate time for hospitals, health care providers, and health officials to prepare for the changes that will come with its end.
Although Covid-19 is still taking an average of over 500 lives daily in the US, about double the number of deaths during a severe flu season, the pandemic is no longer disrupting daily life to the same extent it once did. This is due, in part, to the increasing number of people who have received vaccinations or have developed some level of protection from prior infections.
The White House is committed to an orderly transition out of the public health emergency. Additionally, the administration intends to let a separate declaration of a national emergency expire on the same day, May 11.
The White House has warned against the sudden end of the emergency declarations, stating that it could result in widespread chaos and uncertainty across the healthcare system. The statement highlights the potential impact on states, hospitals, doctors’ offices, and most importantly, millions of Americans.
The White House emphasized the importance of an orderly transition to minimize disruption to the healthcare system and to ensure that the needs of all stakeholders are addressed. The message serves as a reminder of the ongoing challenges posed by the pandemic and the need for continued vigilance and preparation to manage its impact on public health and the healthcare system.
The White House statement was released prior to a planned vote in the House on a bill named the “Pandemic Is Over Act,” which aims to end the public health emergency immediately. The Republican-led House is scheduled to discuss several pandemic-related measures this week. The White House’s statement serves as a response to the proposed bill, as well as another bill aimed at ending the national emergency.
The disagreement between the White House and House Republicans indicates a likely prolonged political dispute over the administration’s handling of the pandemic. Republicans aim to criticize the Biden administration for excessive spending in response to the coronavirus crisis. Representative Steve Scalise, a Republican from Louisiana and the Majority Leader, has called on the Biden administration to end the emergency declaration immediately instead of waiting until May 11. Scalise believes that the Biden administration has used the Covid crisis as a cover to waste taxpayer dollars on unrelated policies.
However, the White House claims that it is the federal Covid policies, including free tests, treatments, and vaccines, that have improved the control of the pandemic. The officials have reported that Covid was the third leading cause of death from 2020 to mid-2022, but is no longer among the top five killers.
In conclusion, the decision to end the coronavirus public health emergency marks a significant turning point in the pandemic, reflecting the administration’s confidence in the progress made in controlling its spread. However, it also brings with it the challenge of ensuring a smooth transition that addresses the impact of the emergency on the healthcare system and its stakeholders.
