"Reached Turkey to participate in @G20Turkey2015. Will meet world leaders & discuss global economic & security issues," Modi tweeted after his arrival from the UK.

The Prime Minister described his three-day maiden visit to the UK as successful.

Modi's three-day trip had a packed schedule that included delegation-level talks with his British counterpart David Cameron, lunch with Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace, a speech to British MPs and an address to the Indian diaspora at the Wembley Stadium.

In Turkey, Modi will attend the G20 Summit, chaired by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The summit, which opens on Sunday, will focus on the current state of the global economy, sustainable growth, development and climate change, investment, trade and energy.

Participating leaders are also expected to discuss political issues such as global terrorism and the refugee crisis in addition to the economic agenda.
