African Union joins G-20, know how India will benefit from it

African Union has also been included in G-20. There are a total of 55 countries in the African Union. When was this association established and who is its president? Let us know what benefit India will get from its inclusion in G20. Questions related to this can also be asked in competitive examinations.

In the 18th summit of G-20 held in New Delhi, the African Union has now become a permanent member of this important group. This proposal of PM Narendra Modi, who is presiding over the G-20, has been approved by all the members. As soon as the proposal was approved, African Union President Azali Assoumani moved towards PM Modi and hugged him. That warmth was worth seeing. Then, as G-20 President, Modi also invited him to participate in the proceedings. India is organizing the G-20 summit for the first time. In such a situation, questions related to this can also be asked in competitive exams. Let us know what is African Union? When was it established?

India's inclusion in this group of African Union is being considered as a diplomatic success because India has very good relations with many African countries individually. India also sees a lot of potential in the African continent. PM Narendra Modi himself has visited at least ten countries. Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar and many of his cabinet colleagues have also been traveling to African countries. It is believed that this latest decision may increase China's concerns. On this pretext, India has tried to attack 55 countries with one stone.
