New Delhi: India on Sunday advocated global solidarity and open democratic societies to tackle challenges like health, climate change, and economic recovery. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s message of worldwide unity was well received at the Outreach Sessions of the G7 Summit, which reaffirmed the need to embrace “values that bind us together” like respect for international rules and norms.

PM Modi took part virtually in two sessions on the second day of the summit on Sunday.

Addressing the session ‘Building Back Together – Open Societies and Economies’ as the lead speaker, he recalled that democracy and freedom were a part of India’s civilisational ethos. He stressed the need to ensure that cyberspace remains an avenue for advancing democratic values and not of subverting it, according to a statement released by the government of India.

His comments came amid a heated and ongoing debate in India over alleged curbing of free speech.
