Yellen added, in a press conference broadcast live in New Delhi, that she would spend the money on alleviating the debt burden of poor countries, a topic she emphasizes at every international meeting, especially where the largest bilateral lender in the world, China, is present. The Council further noted that “we continue to support efforts to provide predictable, orderly and timely debt relief to countries, including under the Common Debt Addressing Framework (G20), where progress has been very slow.”
