USA Comments on India’s Successful Hosting of the G20 Summit:

As the G20 Leaders’ Summit concluded with great enthusiasm in New Delhi, India, under India’s leadership on Sunday, the United States (USA) also lauded it as a resounding success.

During a routine press briefing on Monday, the USA State Department’s spokesperson, Matthew Miller, told journalists, “We firmly believe that the summit was a remarkable success. The G20 is a substantial organization, and it includes member nations like Russia and China.”

In response to a question from the media about the success of the G20 Summit, the spokesperson stated, “There are diverse viewpoints among the member countries. However, the fact that the organization managed to issue a statement emphasizing the importance of respecting territorial integrity and sovereignty, and declaring that these principles should not be violated, is a significant achievement. These principles are at the core of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and addressing them was crucial.”

The New Delhi Leaders’ Declaration stated that the “use or threat of use of nuclear weapons is unacceptable,” without explicitly mentioning Russia. G20 member nations recalled the Bali declaration and stressed the need for all states to act according to the UN Charter’s Purposes and Principles, emphasizing the pursuit of a comprehensive, just, and lasting peace in Ukraine and the importance of refraining from the threat or use of force for territorial acquisition.

Regarding the conflict in Ukraine, the joint declaration reiterated the commitment to national positions and resolutions adopted at the UN Security Council and the UN General Assembly, emphasizing that all states must adhere to the principles of the UN Charter, including refraining from using force to seek territorial acquisition or threatening to do so. It also emphasized the inadmissibility of using or threatening to use nuclear weapons.

The New Delhi Declaration reaffirmed the G20’s role as the primary forum for international economic cooperation and acknowledged that while it does not primarily address geopolitical and security issues, these issues can impact the global economy. The G20 members called on all nations to uphold international law principles, including territorial integrity, sovereignty, international humanitarian law, and the multilateral system that promotes peace and stability.

The declaration stressed the importance of peaceful conflict resolution, crisis management, diplomacy, and dialogue, and expressed the commitment to work together to mitigate the adverse economic effects of the war. It also welcomed initiatives that support a comprehensive, just, and lasting peace in Ukraine, in line with the UN Charter’s principles.
