Highlights of the story

- The former diplomat said that the G-7 countries want to distance India from Russia
- India G-7 has internet access
Apart from the member states, India has also been invited as a guest to the G-7 Summit in Germany. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has been touring Germany since Sunday, met with leaders including US President Joe Biden, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, French President Emmanuel Macron and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. These leaders met Prime Minister Modi very fondly and its photos are going viral on social media. People react a lot about this. There has also been opposition from Pakistan to inviting India to the G-7 summit.
Abdul Basit, Pakistan’s former ambassador to Pakistan and Ambassador to India, cited the reasons behind India’s invitation to the G-7 summit, saying the US and member states want India to distance itself from Russia, so it should be. Called a group. Priority is given
Basit said India could become a member of the G-7 in the coming days. In a video posted on his YouTube channel, Basit said, ‘Interestingly from our point of view, the Prime Minister of India has also been invited to the conference. There is no doubt that India is a growing economy.
He said the US-led G-7 countries were trying to put pressure on Russia to end the war soon, but had not yet been able to fully exert pressure on Russia. Basit said that now these countries want to bring Russia’s close friend India to their court by any means.
Since Russia and China are not on the group, India is likely to become a permanent member of the G-7. On the other hand, we find that India is part of the quartet in the Asia-Pacific region and then part of the second quart (I2U2) in West Asia, which includes the United States, Israel, the United Arab Emirates and India. So India has a chance to become a member of the G-7.
Commenting on India’s policy of neutrality in the Russo-Ukraine war, Abdul Basit said, “India maintains good relations with both sides.” If he also buys oil from Russia and there is no impediment to it, at some point the US or other member states are likely to convince India that whatever economic and security relationship you have with Russia, it should be slow. Slowly you become part of the G7. It is very possible. Since the G-7 countries want to take India out of Russia, this incentive can be given to India. This is definitely something that worries us.
