No 'family photo' at G20 meet in Delhi.  here's why

This is the second time that there will be no “family photo” at the G20 foreign ministers’ meeting.

New Delhi:

Foreign ministers attending the G20 meeting in Delhi will not gather for a “family photo” over the ongoing Ukraine war and sharp differences emerging between the G7 countries and Russia.

Sources said the G7 leaders would not agree to share the frame with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, who is attending the conclave.

The G7 countries include the US, UK, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan.

This is the second consecutive time at the G20 Foreign Ministers’ meeting that the traditional photo session will not be held. G7 leaders rejected a “family photo” at their 2022 foreign ministers’ meeting in Bali, Indonesia. There was also no photo session at the Bali summit, although it was skipped by Russian President Vladimir Putin and attended by Lavrov.

A source said that the G7 countries had decided that there would be no walkout when Lavrov addressed the G20 session. His ministers would stay during those sessions but express their stance on isolating Russia by leaving “family photos”.
