“There is a need for a matured leadership to face these challenges. The leadership need to understand each other and find out ways and means to resolve the conflict. Unilateral approach will not help in this situation. Even the UN does not do much in this regard. However, India has lent its voice to the global South. We have drawn the attention of the world through our G20 Presidency,” Dr Jaishankar explained.
