External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Sunday said that India is always ready to lend a helping hand whenever there is a crisis.Addressing a G20 development ministers' conference in Varanasi, Jaishankar said that India can be trusted in times of crisis.

The G20 development ministers' meeting under India's G20 presidency is being held between June 11-13 in Varanasi, which Jaishankar is chairing.The meeting is happening at a time when developmental challenges are mounting, leading to economic meltdowns in the global economy.
