G20 Nations Agree on Joint Declaration Despite Differences
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced on Saturday that the Group of 20 (G20) nations have managed to reach a consensus on a joint declaration, despite earlier differences regarding the conflict in Ukraine.
Leading up to this year’s meeting, there were concerns that negotiators and diplomats from Delhi might struggle to broker an agreement due to objections from Russia and China concerning references to the ongoing war.
While Prime Minister Narendra Modi didn’t provide specific details about the exact wording of the communique, his announcement suggests that G20 member states have come to an agreement on the main points of discussion during this weekend’s leaders’ summit in Delhi.
The next step involves the various leaders voting on the proposal that India has facilitated, which is largely expected to be a formality at this stage. More information is anticipated to be released during a scheduled press conference later on Saturday.
