PM Modi is also likely to attend crucial events on the sidelines of the climate change conference alongside UK prime minister Boris Johnson, according to reports.
PM Johnson's appeal to PM Modi to remain beyond his statement at COP26 on november 1 is likely to be conveyed by UK Foreign Secretary Elizabeth Truss, who is now in India.
Apart from the aggressive Chinese efforts towards taiwan in the Indo-Pacific, the G-20 conference will focus on stabilising Taliban-ruled Afghanistan.
While prime minister Modi has been meeting with concerned top ministry officials ahead of COP26, india is anticipated to lobby for climate funding, carbon trading systems, and compensation for developing countries such as india, which is also affected by climate change.
