Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday appealed to G-20 member nations to join the International Coalition on Disaster Resilient Infrastructure – an initiative mooted by him to help the smaller nations especially after calamities, the Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson tweeted.
Excellent meeting with President @jokowi, where we reviewed all aspects of India-Indonesia ties.
Looking forward to increasing maritime cooperation, more trade and stronger people-to-people linkages with Indonesia. pic.twitter.com/mYfzfHutXh

On Friday, Modi met Chinese president and Russian president as well.
Friendly nations, futuristic outcomes.
The RIC (Russia-India-China) meeting was an excellent forum to discuss ways to enhance multilateral cooperation between our nations and work to mitigate challenges being faced by our planet, most notably terrorism and climate change. pic.twitter.com/LTljcPCTDW

Modi remarked at the G-20 Session on Quality Infrastructure Investment and Development Cooperation, “Disaster resilient infrastructure is required not only for development. But it is also necessary to combat natural calamities.”
He invited the G-20 countries to join this coalition and share their experience and expertise.
Prime Minister mooted this idea in the G 20 meet in Argentina. Indian government is keen to launch this new global initiative sometime later this year.
