US President Joe Biden tests negative for Covid-19, will travel to India for G20 Summit: White House
WASHINGTON: The White House confirmed on Tuesday that US President Joe Biden has tested negative for Covid-19 and is scheduled to travel to India on Thursday to participate in the G20 Summit. During this summit, President Biden will engage in a bilateral meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
This announcement follows the recent positive Covid-19 test result for First Lady Jill Biden on Monday.
President Biden, who is 80 years old, underwent Covid-19 testing on both Monday and Tuesday, with both tests returning negative results.
National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan provided details during a White House press conference, saying, "On Thursday, the President will journey to New Delhi to attend the G20 leader's summit. On Friday, President Biden will engage in a one-on-one meeting with Prime Minister Modi. Subsequently, on Saturday and Sunday, he will take part in the official sessions of the G20 summit."
Sullivan emphasized President Biden's commitment to working with emerging market partners to achieve significant outcomes collectively during the G20 summit. He expressed optimism that the summit would highlight the ability of the world's major economies to collaborate, even in challenging times.
Biden’s absence from the G20 summit would have been a setback for host India.
For the second consecutive year, Russian President Vladimir Putin has confirmed that he will not be attending the G20 summit. Additionally, Chinese President i is also not traveling to New Delhi for the meeting.
Let's hope for a successful G 20 meet in New Delhi, India.
Biden definitely need an Indian vaccine to fight Chinese covid

India welcomes Mr Biden and wishes quick recovery to the first lady Mrs Biden
Meeting is important for both of them including (feku n party) due to the upcoming election so Covid won't stop them PR hungry guys.
Great! Modi gets to hug a gora guy. His attraction to guys is understandable and that is why he ditched his wife. But why hug foreign male leaders forcefully?
Demented Biden will get confused when he lands at Bharat.
