Conflict between members will be Lula’s challenge at the head of the G20, says expert

The broad and growing differences between the various members of the G20, a group of the world’s largest economies that is now chaired by Brazil, will be one of the main challenges facing President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva in this endeavor.

The analysis is by political scientist Mauricio Santoro, collaborator of the Center for Political-Strategic Studies of the Navy (Cepe-MB), who spoke in an interview with CNN this Sunday (10).

Brazil assumed the symbolic Presidency of the G20 this Sunday, during the bloc’s Leaders’ Summit, in New Delhi, India. Lula received the gavel that represents the group’s leadership from the hands of Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi.

“It is a great challenge to manage an agenda of debates involving three very different groups of countries: the rich, such as Europe and the United States, the large developing countries, such as Brazil, India or South Africa, and this group of China and Russia,” said Santoro.

He mentions the alignment between Russians and Chinese, at a time when the great Western powers are turning against Vladimir Putin’s country in the midst of the war in Ukraine.

Santoro also remembers the escalation of the conflict between China and India in the Himalayan region, on the border between the two countries.

“It is not easy, under current conditions, to bring together such different and heterogeneous countries and get them to talk in search of solutions to common problems. This will be Lula’s biggest challenge over the next year.”
