Beijing, Nov 21 (PTI) China on Tuesday announced that Premier Li Qiang will attend the virtual G20 Leaders' Summit at India's invitation and hoped that the meeting will address global challenges through cooperation and make positive contributions to economic recovery.

The G20 virtual summit on Wednesday will take forward key outcomes and action points firmed up at the annual conclave of the grouping in September under India's presidency, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) in New Delhi said in a statement.

The summit will also delve into the impact of the Russia-Ukraine war and the Israel-Hamas conflict. It is also expected to push for the effective implementation of various decisions taken at the bloc's annual summit in New Delhi over two months back.
