China’s President Xi absence in G20 2023 – Will it impact Summit Consensus!

Indian Foreign Minister Jaishankar dismissed the concerns, while China insists on stable ties despite President Xi’s absence from the G20 summit.

The upcoming G20 summit in New Delhi will go ahead without the presence of Chinese President Xi Jinping, a development that has attracted attention at the diplomatic forum. However, India’s External Affairs Minister Subramanian Jaishankar downplayed any potential impact, insisting that Xi’s absence should not cause any disruption to India-China relations.

Jaishankar said, “The fact that President Xi Jinping will not attend the G20 summit in India is not a big surprise. We do not think it will have any adverse impact on our relations with China.” He further said Xi’s non-participation in the summit would not hinder the world’s largest economies from reaching a consensus during the weekend event.

“China’s stance and position will naturally be reflected through its representatives at the summit,” Jaishankar said. He suggested that the important thing is who represents the nation, not who holds the presidency. Prime Minister Li Qiang, who took office in March, will serve as China’s representative at the G20 meeting. The choice underlines China’s commitment to maintaining its presence on the global stage despite Xi’s absence.

However, the underlying tensions between China and India are still unresolved, primarily arising from a contentious border dispute. The conflict escalated into a deadly clash three years ago, resulting in the deaths of 20 Indian soldiers and four Chinese soldiers. The situation remains tense in the rugged Himalayan region, where both countries have deployed substantial military forces, including troops, artillery, tanks and fighter aircraft.
