Jakarta, Nov 4 (SocialNews.XYZ) Seventeen leaders of the G20 member nations have confirmed their attendance at the summit to be held in Bali on November 15-16, Indonesian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Teuku Faizasyah said.
Faizasyah was reluctant to name the other three leaders who have not declared their presence for security reasons, reports Xinhua news agency.

Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi said on Monday that new Prime Ministers of the UK and Italy, Rishi Sunak and Giorgia Meloni, had confirmed their attendance for the upcoming G20 summit.
