The leaders of the G20 at the summit in New Delhi have reached a consensus on a joint declaration. The content of the declaration has not been revealed yet, according to The Guardian.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that the G20 had adopted a consensus declaration on various issues, including the situation in Ukraine.

"On the back of the hard work of all the teams, we have received consensus on the G20 leaders summit declaration. I announce the adoption of this declaration," Modi stated.

Previously, Western media reported that there were disagreements among G20 countries regarding the joint communique, particularly with Western countries calling for condemnation of Russia's aggression against Ukraine, which Russia had been blocking.

Earlier today, Bloomberg reported that G20 diplomats had reached an agreement on wording related to the war in Ukraine. This provided an opportunity for leaders to adopt a joint declaration.
