"All G7 countries are concerned about the crises that are currently to be overcome - falling growth rates in some countries, rising inflation, shortages of raw materials and disruption to supply chains. These are no small challenges and it is therefore important to share responsibility," Scholz added.

"The G7 are a good community to develop joint responses to the challenges of our time. It is important that we act decisively and also as a unit. Both belong together," he further said.

PM Modi landed in Munich on Sunday to attend the G7 summit, where he would meet with G7 and partner countries to address issues ranging from the environment to energy to counter-terrorism.

PM Modi will conduct bilateral meetings with leaders of several of the participating nations on the sidelines of the Summit.
