Chinese President Xi Jinping will be absent from the Group of 20 (G20) summit to be held in New Delhi, India on September 9-10.
People tend to be “withdrawal” these days, but there are even rumors that they don’t want to come out because their “friend”, President Putin, is absent.
Regardless of the reason, it reflects the situation in which the risk of domestic affairs has increased to the point where it is difficult to engage in diplomacy with peace of mind.

Chinese President Xi Jinping will not attend the Group of 20 (G20) summit, and Premier Li Qiang will attend instead. The reason for this is not officially disclosed. It’s the first G20 summit without a president since the first one in 2008, and there’s a lot of speculation among China watchers that it’s decidedly strange.
The G20 Summit is an annual meeting where the leaders of 20 countries and regions, including the seven major countries (G7) made up of developed countries (G7) and emerging countries, gather together (once every six months). There is also a period when it was). The G20 Summit was held for the first time in November of the same year to deal with the economic and financial crisis caused by the Lehman shock in 2008. China, which is not a member of the G7, attaches great importance to the G20, which can participate in discussions on an equal footing with developed countries, as what will move the world.
Prior to COVID-19, Xi Jinping made more overseas trips than past presidents, and did not hide his ambition to replace the US as the leader of the international community. Immediately after the start of the third term of administration, Xi Jinping launched “envoy of peace” diplomacy and held his first face-to-face meeting with U.S. President Biden outside the G20 meeting held in Bali in November 2022. At that time, it was reported that there was a sign of easing tensions between the United States and China.
If you look at it from 2023 onwards, instead of easing the tension between the United States and China, it has intensified. A year later, outside the G20 summit in New Delhi, India, there were expectations that Xi Jinping would meet again with Biden to rebuild US-China relations. However, China announced on September 4 that Li Qiang will attend the G20 summit. In other words, it turned out that Xi Jinping will not attend the G20.
China-watchers have four main reasons for this. Let’s follow along.
