Bari (Italy)/IBNS: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Friday met US President Joe Biden on the sidelines of the G7 summit.

This is his first meeting with the US president after his historic straight third term at the Indian government.

"It's always a pleasure to meet @POTUS @JoeBiden. India and USA will keep working together to further global good," Modi's post read.

Modi also met Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, on the sidelines of the G7 Summit here in the southern resort town of Italy.

This was their first face-to-face meeting after Trudeau claimed that the Indian government agents were involved in the killing of a Khalistani separatist in Canada last year. Canada has arrested four Indian nationals in connection with the case.

PM Modi is meeting a host of world leaders in Italy during the G7 Summit.

He also met UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in Italy.

In an address at an Outreach session of the G7 summit in Italy's Apulia region, Prime Minister Modi said the countries of the Global South are bearing the brunt of uncertainties and tensions around the world.

"We have to collectively ensure that the benefits of technology reach all sections of society, to realize the potential of every person in the society, to help in removing social inequalities, and expand human powers instead of limiting them. This should not only be our desire, but our responsibility. We have to convert monopoly in technology into mass usage," he said.

"We have to make technology creative, not destructive. Only then will we be able to lay the foundation of an inclusive society. India is striving for a better future through its human-centric approach. India is among the first few countries to formulate a National Strategy on Artificial Intelligence," the Indian PM said.
