Sep 13 – The G20 Leaders’ Summit, sponsored by India, ended with much fanfare in Delhi on Sunday, and the US declared it a “total success.”
“We absolutely believe it was a success,” US State Department official spokesperson Matthew Miller told reporters on Monday during a regular news conference.
The G20 is an enormous organisation. Russia belongs to the Group of 20. China belongs to the Group of 20. The spokeswoman responded to a media question about the G20 Summit’s success.
When questioned why Russia was not included in the New Delhi Leaders’ Declaration, he stated, “There are members who have a diverse range of views.” We believe that the organization’s ability to issue a statement calling for the respect of territorial integrity and sovereignty and stating that those principles should not be violated is an extremely important statement because that is precisely what Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is about.”
“It is those very questions so we thought that was an incredibly important statement for them to make,” Miller added.
The “use or threat of use of nuclear weapons is inadmissible,” the G20 nations said on Saturday in a New Delhi Leaders’ Declaration, referring to the Ukraine conflict.
The G20 member countries recalled the Bali declaration and emphasised that all states must act in accordance with the UN Charter’s Purposes and Principles in their entirety, calling for a “comprehensive, just, and durable peace in Ukraine” and reminding member states to “refrain from the threat or use of force to seek territorial acquisition.”
“With regard to the war in Ukraine, we reiterated our national positions and resolutions adopted at the UN Security Council and the UN General Assembly, and emphasised that all States must act in accordance with the Purposes and Principles of the UN Charter in its entirety.”
“In accordance with the UN Charter, all states must refrain from threatening or using force to seek territorial acquisition against any state’s territorial integrity, sovereignty, or political independence.” The use or threat of use of nuclear weapons is prohibited,” according to the joint declaration.
