U.S. President Joe Biden boarded Air Force One in New Delhi on September 10. after attending the G20 summit. Biden’s next stop is Vietnam, where officials say the focus of the talks will be semiconductors and critical minerals.
Before leaving for Vietnam, Biden missed the last session of the G20 summit. The White House said it was not aware of him having any talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov or Chinese Premier Li Qiang, who led their country’s delegations at the summit.
Russia and the U.S. both praised a G20 summit declaration that stopped short of directly criticising Moscow for the war in Ukraine as the bloc’s leaders headed into the final day of deliberations on Sunday.
The world’s biggest economies adopted a consensus declaration in New Delhi on September 9 that avoided condemning Russia for the war but highlighted the human suffering the conflict had caused and called on all states not to use force to grab territory.
